    It's just one of those days

    Hasn't been the best weekend for me. First, I find out that the hole for my brakeline on my new, rebuilt caliper is stripped, and I therefore either have to get the caliper machined or buy a new one (It's been painted so I can't return it).

    I was all ready to go for a test drive but I don't have a rear right brake.

    Second, I'm working on my power door locks and find out my actuators aren't strong enough to lock the doors, They just move about 1/2 cm and then stop. Now I need to drive tomorrow for 30 min to the performance auto store to get higehr quality ones.

    Ah!.

    Ari, Princess Auto sells the door lock actuators with various attaching brackets for $9.99. I think they were GM. Check them out.

    I have 3 of those door lock acuators that I bought at Princess Auto. Thay work great for door locks and have all the mounting hardware / connecting rods included. I live about 5 minutes away from them, I am there a couple times a week. You can find so many odd parts that you just can't find elsewhere. Ari If you cannot order them I could pick them up for you.

    Trevor,

    Trevor - Around where are you located again? I might take you up on your offer...

    I might be making a two day trip to London, Ontario this week - They have a princess auto there I believe so maybe I'll be able to pick them up.
