Problem seeing through windshield

By admin No comments

Well, was heading home yesterday and driving in hard rain. First time driving like this in the D. Good thing I didnt have far to go, as my visibility was 10% at best out of the windshield. Water on the windshield was being washed away by the wipers, but leaving a thin film behind, which […]

By admin No comments

Well, yesterday with the help of a friend and my father (who has experience rebuilding cars, did a frame up restoration on a ’69 Camaro SS) we took off the caliper and rotor on the front drivers side. Dropped the rotor off at a tire store on the way to work. One hour and $15 […]

Inspection done, but brake issues arise (queue scary music)

By admin No comments

Had the car inspected today, and it passed without a problem. The inspector did say that my one brake pad looked low, and I should get it changed ASAP. So, on the ride home I start to hear this metal scraping sound. Perfect. Brake gone, rotor grinding. Pull it in the garage, pop off the […]

What a funky smell, did something DIE in my car?!?!?!

By admin No comments

After 2 days of running the car without an issue, on trips to and from work, about a hour and a half a day, I have hit a roadblock. The air condtioning smells like somebody is frying ass in my vents. It is awful. I am going to assume that the cold air and water […]

Air Conditioning is now blowing…cold…

I decided to order a Freeze-12 kit from eBay, as it seems to be a good inexpensive R-12 substitute. Locally shops wanted anywhere from $75-100 per pound. As I had no idea how much the car needed, and most wanted $40 to even look at it, I decided to spend the money on the kit. […]

Pittsburg Tech Session A SUCCESS!

By admin No comments

So, made it back today from the Pittsburg Tech session that took place yesterday. It was great. I met many new owners, all of whom were very friendly, and accomplished a lot with the car. The car made the 4 hour trip each way without a hiccup, but it sure was hot on the way […]
