Also fixed window felt

By admin No comments

When I had the passenger door apart I also took the time to fix the window felt strip on the inside of the door. Mine was coming unglued and gunking up the passenger window. Simply unscrewed the bracket, removed the old strip, cleaned with goo gone, and replaced with the soft side of a velcro […]

New door lock actuators, door lock module, remote trunk release

By admin No comments

Wanted to do an overhaul on the door lock system just to get rid of my old door lock module. While I have not had any problems with it, I decided to pick up Toby’s new door lock module and actuator system. Let me just say that it is extremely easy to install this (once […]

Dynamat placement on parcel shelf/back wall

By admin No comments

I have wanted to replace the old foam under the parcel shelf carpet for some time now. The middle section that goes over the fiberglass has cracked and been flaking off the rubber top, and the foam has a bad odor to it. When the car sits closed for a while it definitely is noticeable. […]

Brake overhaul nearly complete

By admin No comments

Only a bit of a problem getting the rotors shaved down. The first place I went to was being operated by a moron who couldn’t figure out how to measure the thickness of the rotor. Second place had no issue. So getting those shaved down saved a few bucks. Got all the new parts in, […]

Beginning of frame rust repair

By admin No comments

Let me start off by saying for the most part, my frame is in fairly good shape. In some spots where there are welds or seams the epoxy has started to chip and of course rust starts, but this seems to be common on these cars at 25 years old (this month for my car). […]

Horn switch replaced

By admin No comments

Continuing on with the electrical work over the past few weeks, I am now finally getting around to fixing the sketchy horn. Ever since I have purchased this car, the horn worked 40% of the time at best. After several tests, my assumption was that the wiring was melted in the horn stalk, or had […]
