    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    hey thats a good idea. i thought about that a few times too but never really put MUCH thought into it..hmmm. also have a 4

    iirc correctly, there are six connections at each harness, input +,-, output +,-, power, gnd

    so obviously our 4 chan amp will be powered and grounded already
    we could use the "input" wires that go to the bose amps and instead run them to the 4 channel amp
    then connect the output wires from the 4 channel amp to the harness again. this would save us from having to run wires through the door. we could just use the existing harness.
    theres an "aux input mod" we can do to the stereo system so i could still use my blackberry dell streak or playbook

    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    I want to thank everyone with all ur help but this Allante was just toooo far gone for me to mess with. I had 4600.00 in it and sold it for 1500.00 and felt I was taking advantage of the buyer. At least I told him all the problems and told him to go home for a day and think it over. If he still wanted it OK. He came back the next day with the $. Next time I will know what to look for on an Allante. Again thanks for all the help. Now if I can find someone that needs a nice white top with a broken rear window.

    You have some problems but you may have great fun getting this thing prettied up. Manuals (shop and what comes with the vehicle) are available on line. I have an 88 and got a new windshield last year. It is a Pilkington DW1104. It cost about $250 through an independent company.

    You have helped me so much that I would not have been able to sleep if I had sold it to u at any price. By the way can I get a couple of hundred for the top that I still have ????

    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    ive seen em go for as high as $1k BUT thats very rare. you also mentioned yours is missing the back glass. i think 300 would be fair for both parties if its in good shape otherwise.

    (IF i had the extra cash) i would have gladly paid the asking price and insisted you not lose any sleep over it.


    if i ended up not wanting to bother with it i would have made the money back on parts

    I live in Florida and consider the Hard Top a Novelty as well as a storage problem for most. I own a Self Storage complex, so mine is in an air conditioned storage unit, leaning against the hard top for my 1990 Corvette. I will never install either on the car ever again. But that is the great thing about the Sunshine State. I only drive the Allante' or the Vette on nice top-down-days.
