The fitment should be the same, but keep in mind you're hack-jobbing this together, it may or may not work, remember that.
You know, I used to think the MkIII was ugly, but It's actually grown on me.
Ordered my transmission filter ($23) and tint samples to tint my blue high beam dash light ($3)
Did more work on my center console piece, fixed my rear hatch trim that had a big crack in it. The fix doesnt look too good, but its better than it was. Worked on my hatch rattle, I think i know the cause and how to fix it. Ive done a temporary fix for now using electrical tape.
No ones posted, figured id just add to my old post.
Two of my windows had paint overspray on them from my cars first repaint, most of the windows had a thin film of green. I used neverdull to melt it off and clean it.
Since im partially colorblind, i honestly couldnt see the overspray. I could only feel it and if i looked right, i could see specs. But now, i can tell that the windows do look better
Mini's still scare the frigg out of me after this video
The solution, then, is don't drive fast on gravel. That should be self-explanatory. However, if you'll notice, the car held up pretty well, aside from everything being broken to pieces. The roof didn't cave in, so it can at least support the weight of the car plus passengers. The fact these guys were able to walk away from it means that it's a decently safe car, and it did very well at compensating for their stupidity.
Bought 4 quarts of Dexron 3 atf. Advanced Auto had it on sale for $3 a quart.
Plan on changing my power steering fluid with it. A while ago i changed 1 quart of it, my old fluid was pure black
Did a little magic on my tail lights.
Now on to get around changing the pig snout exhaust tips...
Bled my brakes because the pedal got all spongy halfway through autocross yesterday.
It helped a bit, but the pedal is still kind of intermittent. May just be time for a new master cylinder.
Added some Rice to my snowmobile.
I seriously want to get a sled. Are they expensive to register/insure/whatever? I know initial cost for a used one will be about 2-3k but I figure I'd better get one so it's easier to get to parties next winter.
All depends where you live Deeps. I Paid 5300$ For my Sled last march, and was a good price since it was end of season. Registration Costs me ~$155 and Fire and Theft Costs me ~$175. I also need a "Sno-Pass" to ride on The Public Trails in Manitoba, and its $125 For the season.
The prices are the same here when it comes to Full Coverage but only Third party Liability is Manditory. So I opt for no Collision Coverage (If some fucktard hits me I'll take him to Small claims court and have his Third party Coverage pay it ) and only have Theft/Fire. If i Crash it my self, I'll gladly Suck it up and pay for my fuck up. Rather not have Points on my licence/ insurance go up on my car due to an off road vehicle.
The only thing I DO know about NY state, and most other states (and Provinces here) is that you need god awfully ugly registration numbers on the thing. Luckily here we have small plates instead that go on the tunnel.
So freakin' antsy, my head bolts cant come it fast enough... bah, I can wait.
So seeing as I got the heads shaved/planed theres some particles still on them, any ideas on how to clean em off without, like, hosing them off or something? I could get like 6 cans of carb cleaner or engine degreaser. Maybe a 5 gallon bucket of kerosene?
Installed speaker wires for rear speakers. All I gotta do now is buy a pair of speakers, make a two holders and then find somewhere to put them.
Oh, I gotta get a newer radio that has separate cables for the rear speakers.
what kind of radio doesn't have output for rear
Changed power steering fluid, helped a little.
Found out why theres a rub sound sometimes when i turn. When my car sits flat and i turn, theres a decent amount of clearence between the tire and mudflap. When my strut expands, ie dropping off a curb, my tire hits on the zip tie i used to hold the inside of the flap in.
Its a simple fix, just needs to stop raining
somehow my power steering hasnt leaked within 3 months of operation, but managed to leak on the garage floor with 4 month of inoperation.
wtf AN fitting
got it a bit late but I will rebuild my transmission tomorrow.
New koyo bearings
New OEM seals and orings
Marlin Crawler bearing retainer plate
Marlin Crawler 1-2 shift fork
Marlin Crawler 1st gear thrust washer (YES PLEASE, this is what failed and wrecked havok in my last R154)
I'll be replacing the pilot bearing, clutch thrust bearing and the slave clutch cylinder.
Well, I didn't work on the car today, but I did get my SCCA membership. This plus my ASE certifications officially makes me a petrolhead, right?
I ordered all 5 motor mounts for my car today, fuck inserts/solid mounts. $185 to my door, Beck/Arnley so they hopefully aren't shit for some reason. OEM mounts are at least $600 for the set..
I had to do a little digging to find the remaining two mounts from Beck/Arnley to complete the set. Apparently the transmission mounts aren't listed on their catalog despite being tagged for the application(#104-1147) which causes most retailers to not list it in theirs. The left upper engine mount is only listed for Civic/Del Sol applications(#104-1195) despite sharing a Honda P/N.
I emailed them about it, I've also found that Amazon stocks the left upper mount for cheaper than RockAuto. The #104-1147 mount is much cheaper if you order it through RockAuto by part number currently though.
Yay things not being easy!
goodbye, helper springs
hello, wedging a quarter underneath my frame rails.
Or the ol' screwdriver trick. Had some guy come in with a really beat up truck. Went to start it, couldn't find a key. I ask the guy for the keys, he walks to his car and pulls out a flathead
He was gonna show me and a co-worker how to start a car with a screwdriver, but my manager overheard and just about freaked out
And to add to the thread, today I spent ~40 minutes trying to take a burnt headlight bulb out of an Audi A3. Ended up not being able to get it out, the only other alternative was to disassemble the entire front of the car. Pretty sure I'm gonna wake up tomorrow with dozens of small bruises on my hands tomorrow
