Hi, this ist my first thread here, being a Firebird 67 owner since 1st Aug 2020 in Germany. The backup lights are not working, because the backup switch seems to be missed. Thats my current finding, but I´m not sure because I didn´t find in the documents online, the real position for my car. Firebird 1967 Convertible 400cui Automatic Gearbox. I dismounted the middle console, awaiting to find the switch attached to the gear lever. All I could find are the cables , especially the light green one for the backup lights and the light socket without bulb (checked already the electric map). Please see the attached pics. Or could the Backup light switch only be found from underneath of the car ?
My wheel has been sticky and then not through the years. It comes and goes depending on the heat levels inside the car. I would try a little armor-all or some sort of cleaner/sealer with silicone. Of course you don’t want your steering wheel too slippery. That might cause other issues you don’t want.

adding that the pulleys come in sets. It's important to get a matching set. Check the build manual for the different sets of part numbers. There's about 3-4 pages of different types based on the years and configurations. I had the same issue before, and got the right set of pulleys. Now the issue is gone. BLK69JUDGE can get you the right ones, get him the part numbers. He helped me many years ago.
Adding to the conversation. I just reinstalled my cocktail shakers while putting my bird back together. They shakers bolt to about 5 different spots including the wheel wells, radiator support, and other spots to tie in all these locations. Adds structural safety if you were to get hit in the front of the car. They also hold the front fender in place at the top where the rubber bumper sits just under the fender.
Hi Joe! I don't know where you could go to get the heater box reconditioned. I took mine apart to clean and repair it. I bought new foam door gaskets from one of the usual Firebird/Camaro parts places. I painted the housing, but probably should have left it with the bare fiberglass gelcoat for correctness.
