Also I bring ye pageking
TARBO, well at least I wired up the lights :\
The volt gauge works though :)
That engine has barely even got its cherry popped
My 1984 scirocco is better<3
approximately 500,000 miles between these two cars. It's funny actually, the motor that was originally in the CRX was put in the hatch, and the motor in the CRX was built using bits of the motor from the Civic. So I basically swapped motors out. :S
Not bad at all. With a bit of care they'll have that each in due time.
You get one good panic stop on the reserve, plus two or three normal ones. Oh, and they do fail mid-drive. The booster in my dad's truck did exactly that, the diaphragm failed and A: made the power brakes not all that power, and it made the engine run like absolute ass. Since the massive vacuum leak in the brake booster made the engine run like ass, the power steering got a bit stiff at idle, and there was less vacuum to operate the already failed booster. Oh, and half the time you'd roll up to a light and it would die entirely if you didn't heel-and-toe it, this was worse when the engine was cold. Oh, and because of the leak, there was zero brake assist the moment the engine died as well.
We fixed it by just cutting two inches off the hose, plugging one end, and mounting that cap on the manifold. The remainder of the hose was removed entirely. Fuck power brakes. We don't need 'em. I haven't had 'em for four years now on mine.
Like I said, being able to safely control a car with 0 power assist is something everyone holding a license should be able to do.
Oh, and my booster? Worked one day. Didn't work the next. No vacuum leak, no odd symptoms, it just worked one day, then the next time I went for a drive I didn't have power brakes. There was no reserve left and there's no vacuum leak. My dad and I suspect a slight leak in the master cylinder filled the booster with brake fluid to the point it no longer boosts, but doesn't interfere with manual brake application.
I don't know. But I'm not in any hurry to replace it. I can still lock the tires up if I need to, so I can still safely stop without it.
I like your stripes, Dip. I get that it wasn't done to make it look totally bad ass, but to look more unique/personal. Plus it's a lot more modest than putting some tribal graphics down the side.
The guy who owned it before me beat it to shit and left it in a field though.
In California G1/2 Camrys are pretty common, especially G2. My current plan is to pay off the Corolla and use it as my daily driver and find another old Japanese toy (going to save my sheckles for a hachiroku) for myself on the east coast (where I'm eventually moving).
More pics from other guys:
You make me miss the good ol' days of the summer where we all sat, talking about cars and life, around our cars in some parking. Cruising around and stuff. Bring me a flamethrower so I can melt all this snow
the black CRX isn't so bad but the hood is fux0r'd and the clear coat is peeling.
yours is alright just has that one fender and a white sunroof, and your paint is oxidized
I guess none of them are really that bad.
Except my hatch. I need fenders, pronto. And filler panels.
psh we've had that many hondas sitting in our yards combined
i love that red eg
Just got done replacing the headlamp housings, tinting the turn signals, and a few other little things to my Mustang. What do you guys think?
I am no Ford guy, I hate Ford. But it looks really nice, you did a good job, very subtle mods and they look spectacular.
Looks really good, I'm a fan of clean looking Mustangs but it's so rare that the owner actually has taste and doesn't add the biggest fucking chrome rims and spray paint random parts (taillights and headlights even) on their car.
If you black out your taillights I swear that I'll kill you :(
I diggg the rims brad!
Tried editing a photo of my car. I don't know if I over did it honestly. I'm pretty high right now.
A really clean one. It's spotless, never driven winter etc. The milage when I got it was 70,000.
Thanks, bro. The rims are slips, of course. 16x7. I traded my gold XXR 521s for them.
I need a front camber kit because I have EG big brakes/knuckles on the front and it threw me positive camber.
I also need to give it a damn good wash, it sat for a long time and is extremely dirty now.
Honda didn't provide enough adjustment from the factory to compensate?
Not for frankenstein suspension setups. Camber remains perfect for stock, but when you go throwing spindles off of other cars on there not everything fits right up. :P
Speaking of which, my dad bought me new tie rods today because mine were worn the fuck out. One was a little slacky, the other was sloppy and dry. Got it all back together already.
No pics though. Now I'm going out to my dad's place to shoot my new .38 Special I bought myself for my birthday.
Hahaha. My tie rods are worn enough to give me about a quarter turn in the wheel before the wheels react. It's kind of disconcerting when I'm carrying a passenger that isn't familiar with it, they almost always ask me if the front wheels are still attached.
I'm hesitant to fix it though. Part of it is that it's been that way since I bought the truck and hasn't gotten any worse so I'm not in any way worried something's going to break, part of it is replacing all the worn parts will costs about $150 and require power tools I don't have access to, and part of it is that it adds to the character of it.
just got it
We need a jealous-rating
Is gonedead0 butthurt or something? He's just dumb spamming. And I agree with Ldesu. Seeing some of the people's cars here make me so jelly.
