  1. Well, finally got around to changing to the brass gear in my formula headlight motor assembly. After looking closer it was apparent it had been worked on before. In fact it was coming apart. The glue failed on the seem and let the gears slip. After apart I could see someone had already flipped the gear over. Now both sides were worn. It was simple enough to change the gear and re-assemble. To insure enclosure wouldn't come apart again I filed down the area where the 3 screws went through the plastic enclosure so when using larger washers they would hold the enclosure together. Never coming apart now. Lights works great.

  5. Thanks for your input. Will post when complete work. Working on the TA now.
  6. Just wondering if anyone has converted to the brass headlight gears that can be purchased at this site......http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm. Got them to fix the gear grinding that is so common with these cars. Never installed them. Wanted to try the quick fix described on the webpage first. Well, finally got around to the quick fix. It was relatively simple to do but now the grinding occurs when closing vs opening. I suspect this simple fix was already done to this car before I purchased it. Now both sides of gear are ground down. This requires me to replace the plastic gears with the brass. My question is.... Has anyone done this conversion and how difficult was. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated. I will post how it went after conversion is done. Hopefully, sometime this spring.
  7. Love those early 90's Pontiacs. Had a Bonneville SSE. Another sorry I sold it story.

  11. It was a great auction. Watched much of it online. First time I watched online and liked it. No commercials and you don't miss any vehicles. Loved those poncho's. Especially those early 70's GTO's and TA's. One day I will make it in person to one of these.

  13. Hi, my name is Dave and I have been a Pontiac fan all my life. Have owned many over the years including GTO's, Grand Prix's, Catalina's, Firebirds, Trans Am's etc. Currently in my garage is a 1996 Formula WS6 6spd with under 25K miles and a 1970 Trans Am (white/blue) 4spd. Have owned both for about 10 years now. Joined foreverpontiac because I would like to keep in touch with other like minded pontiac lovers. Being an old fart and not computer literate, I am having a hard time learning how to use this webpage. I'll keep poking at it though. Just want to say hi and love all the cars. BTW, I sold the 69 GTO pictured next to my Trans Am about 14 years ago. What a joy seeing it at the Pontiac Nationals for the first time since I sold it. Would love to buy it back.
