Not to hijack the post, but what do you do with such an obvious historic part ? Leave it as is and a reference piece ? Sell it to someone that will use on an OE Gold car, or someone like Steve Guliano ?? Use it on your car - as you were searching for it for your car ?? Sell it and get a repop for use on your car ??

I know there are many opinions out there on this . . . just wondering . . .


Cheers

Mark

You raise a good point and essentially, that's why I'm letting go of this part. It would be selfish to use its 'OEMness' on a car that will be driven regularly and instead would be better suited to someone doing an OE Gold restoration or who would like a cool conversation piece.

For my own N96 I have enough original and NOS parts, including a pristine bubble, to put together a very correct assembly, but one that is no longer virgin.

That said, as much as I need a pair of OEM cables to complete it, I will not disturb the first scoop by swiping the short cable for my own use

And this is why I respect your opinion on all things Mopar...

I owe you a few pennies by the way...


But existing is basically all I do.

These are really great, a big thanks goes out to you. Hard to tell because each picture looks a little different and I am half color blind which doesn't help. But can you tell about what color the underside of the bubble is before the over spray got on it?
