  1. Thank you for the info. Unfortunately I don't have a glove compartment. I will follow up with your suggestions.
  2. Please note the photo below. It is in the Burgundy family. I went to my local NAPA to get some touchup spray but their books have every other car brand except Avanti.
  3. Thank you very much! I also want to thank everybody for all the help on my 87 Avanti.!
  4. Thank you, I will check into this. If anyone else has some different idea please reply.
  5. Below the power brake vacuum unit you will notice where the speedo cable comes from the tranny. It's screwed into an electrical device with 2 wires coming from it. On the other side of that device a shorter speedo cable is connected & heads to the actual speedometer. What is that electrical device & what does it do?
  6. Thanks, I will look there. The previous owner could never find it & rigged up a pull wire under the back bumper.
  7. I'm trying to find where the button is located for the trunk release solenoid.
  8. Thank you for your reply. Great on the Hog Troughs! On the paint, I don't have access to the car in the photo to do any matching so how can a paint store figure out what color it actually is?

  9. Since the 1987 Avanti has a Monte Carlo frame what is the situation with the Hog Troughs? Do they exist in the 87? If so how are they different & if different are they still subject to rotting out as in the earlier Lark frame Avanti's. In 1989 there was a color that was a cross between a dark burgundy and/or Black Cherry. I'm looking for the color code & associated name so I can get my 1987 repainted, currently red. I'm trying to duplicate the color of the car below that I saw at a show.
