Congrats!Just drove home with my 2004 red spyder. Very excited. Drove home from salt lake city to Spokane.
Top down all 749 miles!
Only time top will go up would be caught in rain or spending night away from home and when stored for winter.Congrats!
I got my own Spyder three months back (my son has had a red 2000 since 2017) - also drove it home with the top down, and as much as possible since.
So far doing my own work. Oil and filter and air filter and plugs and checking everything I can on Thursday. Next week, tackle the precats.We're in Spokane too with a red '00; let's meet up!
Also, let me know where you are getting your work done. We moved back here 10 months ago from SLC (ironically) and we're trying to identify places we'd trust to do work on the Spyder.
Beautiful find, btw!
Yeah I feel that. Actually met a fellow Spyder owner who had his engine blow up at 110,000 because he didn’t remove the pre-cats. Made me incredibly wary but he was nice enough to give me a header he was going to put on his car for free. I love it and it makes my car sound slightly nicer. Also make sure that you either put a locking washer or a bit of Loctite on your exhaust bolts to avoid them backing off. I had that problem with mine and it blew the gasket and I had to replace it. Not that hard to do but easier to just prevent it.Precats gone as of yesterday. They were perfect, but, too many warnings here and YouTube had me nervous.
Ticking time bomb gone now.
