thank you for the kind words! Ive been meaning to make a thread on here about my car and decided it was time to do it when I saw some seats I wanted for sale on here. Realizing I need at least 5 posts? To reply to the for sale thread I decided it was time to start a thread about my car.Jump in! Lots of folks are happy to give free advice.
thank you! All fluids have been flushed including the eps fluid with new Nissan eps fluid. Ive been going through my phone and will be adding more pics as I have time. The car is back on the road now and it runs and drives very well!Congratulations on your new to you Spyder. It looks like the previous owner tried to save a few dollars with sub standard "repairs" and really should have left things alone. I'm glad you were able to rescue this spyder before they did any more damage. You're doing it right checking it over good and replacing any fluids, etc they may have cheaped out on. Spending time and money on it now will save you lots of headaches later. Good luck and enjoy your ride when you get it all sorted out.
It’s soo much better then an electric pencil sharpener! I work in a fabrication shop where #2 pencils are used to mark cut lines on fiberglass cloth and the electric pencil sharpeners only last 6 months to a year before dieing. We have a couple of x-acto hand crank sharpeners like the ones in my garage that are probably older then I am!
I just tried it out for the first time on this particular job. I should have bought some years ago instead of trying to use pb blaster as cutting oil. I have noticed a great increase in my drill bit life between sharpenings while using it.Using good cutting fluid there I see. I really like that tap magic too, we use it at work.
Having a seat held in so precariously is very scary indeed! My drivers side seat had all its bolts fortunately… but they were only finger tightened… I kept wondering why it made this creaking noise every time I applied the brakes. I looked at the seat frame/sliders one day and noticed the loose bolts. I hate to admit it. And this might be another sign of my severe ocd (in case you guys haven’t already noticed from seeing how well I try to keep my garage organized) but soo far I’ve spent about $300 replacing missing or broken nuts bolts clips and fasteners with new oem Toyota ones.I haven't seen out of those wall pencil sharpeners outside of my mom's house since elementary school....and she's a teacher haha.
Nice work so far. Going over a car that is so neglected can be nerve racking as the question is always "Has this been touched? And if so what shortcut was taken?" The worst I've seen was someone that had replaced the driver's seat & used self tappers to "secure" it in place...that valve cover sealant job kinda reminded me of that quality of work.
Clean your soft top drains if you haven't, otherwise you hit the major maintenance of getting a used Spyder already. Hopefully you can get around to enjoying driving it now.
I think you're the first person to solve the 0440 code wihout asking for help.Shortly after buying my MR2 the cel came on. I had a P0440 evaporative emission control system malfunction detected. I then proceeded to diagnose said code and came to the conclusion that the vent valve in the top of the fuel tank had gone bad.
