Re: what happened to the community

Sorry to resurrect a dead thread but I stumbled across it while searching the site for something and had to reply. I just thought I would respond to add some positivity to this thread too. I'm a early 20s 86 owner that semi-recently purchased a 85 zenki coupe and am super thrilled to be a part of t...

Re: Car history?

Is that a legitimate website where people buy cars from?

I remember after I sold my Silvia S13, a year later I came across an add on the internet on some random "unique cars for sale" website with my car on there. They used my pictures/info from my craigslist ad and everything Lol.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Dude those calipers look sick. Any thought on wheel choice later on down the road? Or are you going to stick with the Konig Rewinds?

I feel like you'd gotta get some wheels that are a little more open to show that stuff off. TE37s would look good ;)

By the way, did you find out if there was a common ground between the three readouts? Thats another reason why I decided to take the cluster apart. Out of that list you posted there's only 4 ground wires; 16, 26, 19, and 3. Everything else works fine so I was hoping I could at least trace which one...

Next time, make sure you use a penetrating solution and let it soak overnight on ALL bolts you plan on messing with. Also, from my experience, water pump, crank, any lower engine or "hard to reach" bolts will give you trouble. If it's an iron block, you could just warm it up before you me...
