Thanks!

For the record, it's a diesel, so for remote start I'd at least need to cycle the glow plugs at least once. And trigger the fast idle solenoid by pushing down the go-pedal a bit...

Did you see my 72 body swap thread? I put a 40-gal Chevy tank in the back. There's a link in there, I think I paid $92 for a brand-new tank.

Scott has it right. I put these same ones on mine and they are exactly what's needed (mine's a '72 so I don't know about the newer models). The new seals compress nicely and allow the doors to close...
