  1. I have an Instagram and Facebook page. It’s called Brookland Leather. You can send me a g-Mail message from there. OR you can send a message in Messenger. I’m also on FB, Bryan Owens.
  2. Sure, I can make one. I think I still have some of the material. Prolly be $25 + shipping.
  3. Yep, That was me! Thanks for the compliment ZUP. I’m pretty sure I still have the patterns for those items. I can dig them out if anyone else needs 1 or all of them. I haven’t seen the repros from MSA so I don’t know close they are to the originals.
  4. Yup! Shipping is a killer any more! Good luck with your project. I spent 7 years on mine. How far away are you from completion?
  5. Mark, If you are willing to send me your steering wheel, sunvisors, door panels, your old shift boot and e-brake boot and the green thread you’re matching to I can cover/make new ones in black leather stitched with the green thread. I assume all of your pieces are in good condition structurally? Let me know if you’re still interested and I can give you prices. I already have plenty of good quality black leather on hand. I just finished the interior (seats, door panels, sun visors, steering wheel & dash pad of my 84 Vette in black leather with gray stitching. I can cover your seats as
  6. Mark, Outside of the shift boot and e-brake handle I wouldn't attempt to make a cover for something I didn't have in hand. Too many variables in my opinion. It appears that J F Customs does well at it but also have their problems especially with remedies and followup after the sale. My door panels are actually the original panels with several modifications to get the custom look. The steering wheel and sunvisors are pretty straightforward. The console isn't the original. I custom built the one in the car from scratch primarily because I didn't know if I could actually cover the original
  7. GOGRIZ91 - Exactly what I'm looking for! Hopefully more of these come along. Mark - I posted some of my interior pics in my profile. Feel free to take a look.
  8. Some of you will remember me (LBO730 - Bryan) from a few years back for developing the reproduction early style shift boots, emergency brake boots etc. for the early Z cars. You guys gave me overwhelmingly great support on that project. I'm still doing lots of stuff in upholstery and leathercraft. You can see a photo of the leather interior I did in my 75 280 in my photos. I wanted to see if you guys think there would be any interest in good quality leather wallets, key fobs, belts, wrist cuffs, mouse pads, phone cases, guitar straps, coasters etc. and maybe even purses & totes for the
  9. Hey Zed, I can still put one of these together for you. Just let me know. Bryan
  10. Sorry Zed, Didn't mean to offend you. I thought I had answered all the questions. I'm obviously struggling to get the car started on my own. Let me try again. I'm testing voltage at the injector with the connector connected to the injector. I have 12 volts with the key on and a drop to 3.4 when cranking. Is this what you mean by "starting voltage"? Timing isn't off. Plug wires are in the right order. The noid light is pulsing weakly meaning that it pulses but the light is very dim. I would think it should be bright. I have read the "engine fuel chapter in the FSM numerous times and
  11. No battery problems. Sprayed the starter fluid in and it putted for a few seconds. Still trying to determine if a faulty AFM, water temp sensor or water temp switch can prevent the injectors from spraying enough fuel. Inadequate fuel flow I believe is definitely the problem. Just gotta figure out why.
  12. No luck yet. I ran out of time yesterday. I do have over 12V at the #6 injector connector with the key on but it drops to around 3 when I crank the engine. I haven't tried starting fluid yet. I'll do that tonight or tomorrow night. I verified timing and plug wire order early on. Stay tuned.
  13. The noid light pulses, but very dim. I'm sure theres not enough fuel going in. It has weakly sputtered a few times but that's it. If I remember correctly, the #6 injector was showing about 3 volts when it was cranking.
  14. Thanks Zed, The basics were covered long ago. Spark is good at the coil and all 6 plugs while cranking. The voltage/ pulse at the injectors is weak. I just can't figure out why. All wiring is factory. I have performed every test I can find in the factory service manual. I'm down to the AFM. Do you know if a faulty AFM, water temp sensor or water temp switch can prevent the car from starting? Believe me, I've put in the effort in trying to solve the problem. Any suggestions on what to do next would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I'm getting desperate fellas! I'm sure it's been covered somewhere but here's some facts. Been working on this 75 resto for 6 years. Complete disassembly and reassembly. It's done but I can't get it started. I've been thru every test in the EFI bible at least twice. Passes all the tests. I have swapped in a refurbished ECU, still no change. I have 38 lbs of consistent fuel pressure. I have good spark at the coil and all 6 plugs. New fuel injectors and connectors. The distributor is in correctly (not off 180). I've double checked every electrical connection I can come up with. The
