Wow... that sucks. What are you gonna do then ? Are you gonna try and work out the kinks ?

It does look good though. :|

And I just saw that I totally missed the last update with the Racelands and SRT wheels. Looks great ! It must handle quite differently too ! :thumbup:

^ if that was unplugged it would not come on at all.. the problem is that your brake fluid is low. check it. re-fill it. then inspect why it is low(you may need new pads) True, true. A little brain freeze on my part here. But I had good intentions. lol They use the same light for the brake fluid le...

Hi Michael, The sensor is a switch that's right on the base of the handbrake handle. So you'd have to remove the center console by removing the screws at the bottom of the armrest and the two screws at the front in the cupholders. Then leave your shifter in first gear and raise your handbrake handle...

How far did you drive it? Did you pull on the fusible link to be sure the wires in it were still intact? If it stretches, the link is done. I drove it for about 30 minutes altogether, starting it about 6-7 times in the process. Do you think the light would have come on by then ? The battery is a ye...

Should I worry about this now ? (possible electrical issue)

(This is on a 2005 SX2.0, MTX) Alright, so I made a beginner's mistake today. I removed my battery, changed the shift cable bushings, then reinstalled the battery... the wrong way. I connect the cables then poof ! Big cloud of blue smoke coming from under the intake manifold. I thought:"Crap ! But w...

Well, it hasn't been answered yet so I'll have to provide the info myself at some point. haha

The A/C compressor itself weighs 13lbs, so I can imagine that with all of the other components, one would look at removing about 20lbs worth of parts.

No, I didn't. I'll do that in the spring and it won't be a stock bar. ;)

I have other things to do right now, just to prepare the car for the winter. You know ? Winter ? ;) haha lol

Aaahhh... good. Thanks for the info on the gauge rings. :)

And yes, I see your point about the 7-spokes. 16 inch wheels would definitely make a difference. Good choice, looking forward to seeing that. :rockon:

Nice work !

I also love the chrome gauge rings. Do they slide on or something ? They look like a perfect fit ? Are they ? lol

Chrome handles would just be perfect with those !

I prefer your car with the 7-spoke wheels, looks cleaner.

Anyway, keep it up ! :rockon:
