got my alignment done and correcfted and got my ball joints replaced. handles and drives much better
took out the intake and exahaust manifolds, the pulleys, alternator, ps pump, brackets, ac compressor, radiator. basicly it's ready for an engine swap.
all that's remaining is to take off the tranny bolts and 3 more engine mount bolts and it will just slide right out.
crank to alt belt
windsheild washer tank
checking master cylinder for brakage
maybe ripping the exhaust off and mesuring for a new one
weld on new cat.
and figuring out the bastid vaccume lines
The more i learn, the more worrying noises i hear
"Play a Windows CD backwards and hear scary messages. Thats nothing, play it forwards and it installs Windows"
Quote, originally posted by b00st1n » i had my windows tinted. it looks really good but now i can't roll them down for three days. it's going to be about 108 this afternoon.
who told you that you can't roll them down for 3 days ? the tint shop ? that's BS. with that amount if heat , leave the car under the sun for 2-3 hours and you'll be fine. trust me
i've tinted 2 of my cars myself and they looked great.
btw the tint shop (or maybe you) should use a heatgun on the tint to make it sit flat (without wrinkles) on the window, and that heat gun will actually make the tint stick to your window pretty hard. so don't worry about pulling them down. BUT i would recommend that if you pull your windows down don't pull them ALL the way, leave about 1/2 inch of the window out (if you pull all the way the edge, or molding that's touching the window could pull your tint off for now)
Put the O2A back in my car today... in the process broke the little nipple on the coupler on the upper radiator hose... won't happen again i already found a nice piece of aluminum tubing and a 45 degree barbed fitting that will be replacing that plastic **** Took the VR out for a quick spin around the block... clutch grabs like it should and doesn't chatter all to hell... woohooo!!!!!!!!!! Time to have some fun once i'm not spewing coolant everywhere...
