Re: After market hatch question

thanks for the reply. I've been leaning more towards frp because of cost, but shipping is so crazy out to the islands that I was thinking what the hell spend the extra bucks. We do have a lot of pot holes out here though, so I guess that is something to think about as well. hahaha From your experien...

After market hatch question

My hatch is pretty rusty and beat up, and I was thinking about going aftermarket. For any one who has bought a Seibon CF hatch, do they all come with a pre-drilled hole for the rear windshield wiper? All of the web sites I've been looking at use the same stock photo with an existing hole. On a side ...

Re: Need help identifying some seats.

Thanks for the info cloudstrife. Yah at first I thought that purple was just faded black and I didn't think it would match, but my rear seats are so faded they actually do prettty well haha.

Re: Need help identifying some seats.

I would like to throw these in my car, but haven't been able to make up my mind yet. I'm not sure if I want to spend the money seat rails for some old seats. Do you have any fitment issues with the size of the seats?

Need help identifying some seats.

Whats up everybody, need some help identifying a pair of bride seats that was given to me. As far as I can tell they are two different models. I believe one is a brix and one maybe an ergo?

Rust specks on windshield

Someone was grinding metal on a car somewhat close to mine, and now I have rust specks all over my windshield. Anyone have any experience removing the rust stains and pitting caused by the sparks?

Re: problem shifting into gear

update. I cracked the clutch line a little to relieve some pressure, unbolted the slave, and gave the clutch fork a good shake back and forth. Seemed to loosen up what ever was stuck. The car was able to drive up and down the road afterwards. It is still a little unsettling that the problem might ha...

Re: problem shifting into gear

Thanks jondee

Just got out from under the car to check the slave, no fluid/crud build up. I unbolted the slave to see if maybe the clutch fork was stuck but it could move freely as well.

Oh well, but since I will be dropping the trans might as well buy some new parts ay? haha

problem shifting into gear

whats up. Was wondering if anyone would have some insight on a problem I have. The trans doesn't seem to engage into gear. I don't think it is the clutch master or slave. I can see them operating properly when pushing in the clutch pedal. Also when the car is off and in first gear, I can manually pu...

Re: GTS gauge cluster not reading

When I did my sr5-gts swap something similar happened to me, but it was a stupid fix. One of the gauge cluster plugs didn't seat all the way. Plugged it in till it clicked and it worked. Hopefully that is your only issue.

Yah I was real young when I shaved it. My present self would have probably kept it, but it's no big deal. Plus with the realll heavy down poors, the windshield wipers didn't do s**t anyways haha.

Re: First drive after gts swap, car struggling.

I ended up spending 3 bucks a piece. Only thing is that you have to reuse your old injector connector rubber boots. Mine were ratty, so I found some at the junk yard. If you really wanna go cheap and don't need brand new, I found most dohc cars from around the same age share the same type of injecto...

Status update:

Replaced all injector plugs with new ones and the car runs cherry. For anyone who is interested, you can buy new fuel injector plugs at rock auto for dirt cheap.

Re: First drive after gts swap, car struggling.

The leads are in the correct order.

I didn't get to mess with it to much today. I was going through the diagnostic manual, and was about to check if the injectors were functioning, when the injector pigtails completely disintegrated and I said, "fcuk it, I'll do it later."
