It needs a new Trans but untill I get the money for that I am taking care of some small stuff.

Here are the AMC speaker grils I made.

And today I was taking the slop out of my steering column thanks to a post I found on here. :)

So now for a question...

What is this part? I couldn't find its home when reassembling the steering column. It all seems to work fine without it. ;)

It's the switch for the key buzzer.

no its not the buzzer switch that juhap posted, that is in place. It is some kind of spring. I think it fell out of the left side when I was removing the column cover.

Juhap and ammachine390 are right, but just off.  It's the clip for the buzzer switch.  You can see it in the steering diagram in the eaglepedia.  I took a column apart and this part took me hours to find where it went!

Just took them off while I was doing the fender work. I am going to hang on to them but if anybody wants the chrome fender trim let me know.
