dr manhattan is cool... so far.
4 of July special, my new Cb7

Sold my CB a couple of months ago (first one I owned), and bought a 04 Acura TL. A few weeks ago, I sold the TL and decided to get a less expensive ride and keep some money in my pocket. Decided to do a little browsing in my local market and found a couple of CBs for sale. The next day I went and met with one of the sellers. I Fell in love with it the moment I saw it sitting in his driveway. I had good leverage in the negotiation because he was moving to NY, and we all know our CBs do with snow and road salt... Ended up getting it for $1,100. This is probably one of the cleanest (if not the cleanest) CB here in Charlotte, NC.

Enjoy!

Just a simple O2 sensor and a dirty EGR port. I'm Planing on using some carb cleaner and a flexible nylon tube brush to clean the orifice.

I love the color of the car, interior, it's manual and it's a coupe, the only thing I would want for my dream cb7 is for it to be a 92 or 93. It is still a great buy at what you paid for it. Hopefully I will see it in person one day.

I actually went for this one just because I've always liked the automatic seatbelt system since I was little. I sometimes think it's strange that none of the car companies have brought back that feature.

Idk in which part of NC you live on, but you can try the Facebook market vehicles section. I've seen coupes go from $500 to $1,700 here in Charlotte. Yeah, let's set up a meet soon!

Do you ever go to those Toys R Us meets in Charlotte? We have meets in my town but it isn't worth the drive from Charlotte here. We hosted a car show and race down at Rockingham Dragway a few weeks ago, I didn't think about posting it on here for the local guys

Thank you. I was planning on removing some stickers, just needed a second opinion.

I've never heard of those I've been to some local ones on Friday nights. Try and get some footage for the next meet, I'm sure it'll make a nice post.

Finally got some free time today and made some progress on it... Picked up some speakers today because the one that it had did not sound good.



I did not expect to find the factory ones in there. This is what 27 years look like.






These will do, for now.

Got these LEDs for around $30 on eBay, had some good reviews, a 3-year warranty, and are 4-sided. I had to do something about the factory Halogen because when it rains, the light reflects off from the pavement and I can't see the potholes and deer that appear out of nowhere







Led vs Halogen (LOW BEAM). They're tremendous, the only downside to this is that flashing these at cars could cause temporary blindness unless you have the aftermarket projector headlights.

Update...

Had to do something about that CEL and poor gas mileage. Took off the EGR valve and this is what it looked like.






Went ahead and bought these for less than 5 bucks.




Note to self and others attempting to try this: Use gloves and place a rag around the EGR orifice while spraying or your engine bay will end up like this....



YUCK!!



After a few minutes of spraying and wrestling the metal tube brushes to bend and scrape the passage, it paid off. I'm sure it's still dirty further down the passage, but it's worth a try for 20 minutes of work.

On Topic: cleaning out EGR ports is fun! Great job on doing that! Did you pull the plugs at all or just spray the crap out of it?

No plugs pulled, just tried my best with the cleaner. The CEL didn't go away, but I already knew that was not going to do the trick. It was more of a temporary solution; although, I did saw an increase in mpg, so it did something.
