I will be going to look at some 5th gen parts a guy has today, he has many new and used and willing to trade for a 68 step side I have.
This is just a partial list he gave me: tail gate, 2 sets of swivel seats, all new chrome trim, doors etc. His Elky was stolen and wanting to get rid of the parts.
As far as the AF museum I can do anytime.
I will be keeping the parts I need and listing what is left on here very cheep.

Just got my first Elky last week. Wife was surfing the net and found this place, figured I'd sign up and say hi. I've wanted one for as long as I can remember and now I finally have one.

Ty for the welcome. I have a ton of questions, but I'll hold off for now until I get a chance to really dive into the car and see what I'm dealin with. Also need to get interior pics uploaded, she's quite sad on the door panels, seat is in fairly decent shape though, so is the carpet.

Well, the wife and I were going to check on her property, brakes were a little mushy but worked, got there, checked on things and got ready to leave. She put it in drive and was going to go down the hill by the property and nearly hit a utility pole and a tree, absolutely no brakes. Checked the brake fluid and the smaller back reservoir was empty. Her dad brought us some brake fluid and while the brakes were lack luster at least, they got us home, learned there is also a sticking caliper and a leak somewhere. Brake pedal goes 3/4 of the way down before the brakes kick in, I've not had the time to look at it as our college is back in session. Going to look at it this weekend and see what the deal is. If anyone has any thoughts on it, I welcome all input.

Hey Matty Man & Region 8! Sorry I haven't been on lately, been very busy this summer with all kinds of stuff going on. Hit the cruise-in in Beavercreek at the corner of Fairfield & 35 a coupel of times this summer, starts every Fri night about 6. Usually 3 to 6 ElKeys out there, mostly 5th gens. Meeting up at the Air Force Museum in Dayton is a great idea in Sept but stay away from Sat the 15th, that's the AF Marathon, there will be a huge crowd there that day! My brother's mother-in-law backed into my 87 ElKey in her driveway last month causing $409 damage to the left front corner, ugh! Just got it out of the shop last week & they did a great job fixing it! I took advantage of the opportunity & bought all new bezels & grill, so the front end looks great now! Hope to meet you guys in Region 8 before the summer is over! TD
