update on a few issues that the car has-
So today, the lack of a working radio was really becoming annoying, so I took a CD deck out of my parts car and started to move it into the quantum. I was unable to find a working 12v key on source, so I started to pull the knee panel to access some other wiring, and this is some of what I found-
this is a bad picture unfortunately-
EDIT- they won't let me put it up cause I labelled the pic Mouse$hit.jpg, and the vortex forum edits it out!
So while ive been driving the car, there has been a low grade mousy smell, well the knee panel was full of mouse **** and nesting materials, and the lower foam/chipboard panel above the pedals was totally soaked in mouse piss. That had to be thrown out, but I was able to clean and trim all the nastiness, including a petrified mouse body out of the knee panel.
However, this might be an indication as to whats going on with defrost. Ive been thinking about how its possible that its a manual cable operated redirect to the defrost vent, and how could it be broken? Far more likely its blocked with more mouse nesting crap. That should be fun to dig out.
Also, here is the current ride height, bumpers should be here on monday so it should be less pronounced, but its super high. I have it on a set of 4 185/70 R14s. Needs to come down some, maybe in the spring. I love the above highway pic of the black quantum, that might be just about right
