I’ve been looking at C30s for a while now and I think I found one that really ticks all the boxes. I’ve been mainly looking at the pre-refresh 2008 - 2010 models. But the other day I saw an ad for a 2013 Polestar and that color combo with the black wheels and the R Design interior just fell together for me. I would…
Added something I hadn’t seen yet!
Makes me miss my old Mazda 2. I’ll grab another someday.
The engine isn’t weird, but look at the front clip! I wonder if it would look good with paint?
Figure it will help me make some better panels for the RX-4 project. Should reduce welding and filler too!
Decided to cut some more out of the roof because it was not blending well at the corners. Then I mocked up more templates:
Most of the cutting is done on the old shell for now. Time to work on the metal work to blend to the hatch shape.
Good Morning everyone. I’ve had a few cold mornings where my battery warning light has come on and I do not believe the 128i has ever had it’s battery replaced. I would like to register it properly and the like, but I live quite far from the nearest dealership and I like to do most things DIY. Has anyone on here…
Hello fellow opponauts, I have to repair the injection pump in my Mazda 323 Diesel (leaking) and I was thinking of getting a spare to work with. I found this online:
I saw an ad for Elio pop up on my web browser so I went to their site to see if they had anything new and interesting to look at. I was a little disappointed, but they had a configurator so I looked into the options available. This is what I came up with:
So apparently the oil filter housing seal goes fairly normally on these cars. Mine is quickly approaching 93k miles and it is leaking now. I read some DIYs and they talk about requiring a coolant change. I’m thinking now is a good time for that anyway. Any tips or trick or other suggested maintenance items while…
Wow, I didn’t see this coming, look at yesterday and today’s strips.
Found this gem on facebook. I love it.
Right now I have a classic case of too many projects and not enough winter storage. I’ve thought about this long and hard (phrasing) and the best solution I can think of is to move the Euro Spec 323 Diesel. How would I even go about valuing the car? It has just under 104k miles and runs like a champ. New tires,…
Picked this up with my dad a month or two ago, did some ignition and fueling work to it. It’s running and driving now, just a few quirks to work out still. Here she is in her first car show:
My dad bought this 85 RX7 and decided he didn’t like it, didn’t even take it home with him. It’s been at my house ever since we picked it up. So I threw it on the road and have been fixing it up. First step, out with these:
Did a lot more cutting yesterday on the roof and the shell. Trimmed the roof length about 7-1/4 inches. I think I need to take another inch and a quarter out still.
So I picked up another Miata shell to practice on, before I work on the $500 Miata. This one had already been parted out. It’s clean enough that I am still tempted to work with it long term. I’ll see as I go I guess.
It’s Legit now! Had a small hiccup Thursday registering my 1990 Euro spec 323 diesel Thursday. They didn’t have a weight in the system to match my VIN. So I had to either weigh it at a certified scale, or bring in a picture of the mass plate on the firewall. Put it on the road and it’s been a joy to drive since.
