Re: New and Improved Dash Panel
It is actually peel and stick and can be pulled off and replaced as many times as necessary - very easy to work with.
I've wanted a cruise control in the Granada since 1995 when we moved back to BC from Ottawa. We drove back in the Granada because the auto hauler they contracted wouldn't move a car that was over 15 years old because they didn't want to get into an argument about value if anything happened. It was still bone stock at that point so KBB value would have probably been around $200.... but I digress!
We were allowed nine days to drive back but the movers said if we could get there in six days, they could unload everything direct into the new place rather than unloading into storage, reloading, then unloading again. We did it, but it meant some long days. I did all the driving, and I found the only place I got sore was my right heel. I could move everything else around without having to take breaks, but my right foot had to stay put while we were driving because the car didn't have a cruise control. I swore if I ever did a long roadie in that car again, I would put in a cruise control first.
One of the things on my bucket list is to take the Granada and cruise Main St. in the town I grew up in, but that's about a three day drive from here. Otherwise, most of my trips are an hour or less.
My plan is to drop down your way at some point to get some help hooking up the cruise control .... remember, my rule is to get knowledgeable help with anything that will be dangerous or expensive if I get it wrong! I can have most of it done beforehand.
But first, I have to pull the radio and see if I can figure out what I did to it when I took it out and replaced it yesterday to cause the volume to be stuck on its highest setting........
