Re: tail light connector info needed

I was trying to repair some of these taillight cards on a Brava which are similar to the Spider. Same design, just shaped different. I can't remember the exact reason why I started this but I think the copper strips that the white connectors plug into were separating from the circuit board. I tried ...

Re: Outer lighting Switch

I think dumbest accessory setup is the wipers. The column switch has three positions. Off, delay, constant ". Then there speed control in the dashboard. So you have two delay speeds and two constant speeds. I've never seen a wiper setup like this. Yet the X 1/9 has four positions Off, slow delay, sl...

Re: Favorite body filler / glaze?

I like using U-POL. It comes in a pouch and you kneed the bag to mix it where the liquid may separate from sitting and just squeeze out a dog turd and apply a bead of hardener across it and mix. The reason I don't like using Bondo is I have to get it out of the can with a spoon and then guess how mu...

Finally got around to putting something together from the drone footage I shot at FreakOut. Hope you like it.

FreakOut 2019
Is that the show field? Reason I ask is last time I as there (which was Nashville) they would group the years and models together.

Re: Freakout

Where is Freakout 2020 going to be held?

I haven't been since the one in Nashville. I was hoping it might be in Asheville again one of these days.

Re: 1980 Spider - Turn Signalling

I misunderstood that the blinkers weren’t working. Everything else applies but you can ignore the part about the hazards and grounding. Get a new flasher unit, and it’s located under the dash by the ignition switch. Btw many European cars had a single indicator for flashers. My old vw and Audi’s we...

Re: Contaminated fuel or something else?

Well got the Subaru out the other day to test out my new Android touch screen stereo, new brake pads (front and back) along with new front rotors to see if I could get rid of that nasty front end shimmy under hard braking. Well the new rotors did the trick. Brake pads looked like they had less than ...

Re: Anyone ever replaced the positive battery cable?

Try to stay away from those steel plated connectors, if you plan on just cutting the connector off and using a replacement type that uses a saddle and two bolts/nuts like the ones below. Those things tend to corrode and when you use one of those steel brush battery post cleaners it just scraps away ...

Re: Contaminated fuel or something else?

I've had cars sit for a year or more and not have a fuel problem. It sounds to me like you have a pressure problem that is worse when the sediment from your tank being contaminated sits at the bottom and gets ingested into the pump. It's been maybe a couple of years but I replaced the fuel filter. ...
