Used the jack from my van to push the back of the trunk compartment out. The latch is still a bit sticky, but the trunk lid now sits down where it is supposed to when closed.



Used a load strap to pull the bumper bracket back out.



I decided to stay with the 90-91 cover because I was able to straighten the bracket, the beams appear identical (I have several lying around), and the foam cushion survived the accident. Replacement remanufactured OEM rear cover is at Frank's being painted. Should have it back this week.

I would have felt like putting it in a glass bubble after all that restoration work!

Thank you. Future plans include rear disc swap. I already have an EX crossmember with sway bar (and EX sway bar up front), but the adjusting bolts for the lower control arms are frozen, luckily the alignment is still pretty good. I intend to rebuild (strip and paint or powder coat) the rear suspension from my wrecked 93 EX coupe, then swap it in and change the fuel tank as well; one of the strap bolt nuts stripped out of its bracket and you have to drop the crossmember to change the bracket.

It may be a while; I just got Silver (wife's 93 LX) back from the body shop for paint after front end repair. http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=197590 I have to install the rest of the front end.

Then I need to get the 92 coupe ready for sale. New windshield next week, still need a good trunk lid and two better tires.

Well, didn't get to the rear disc swap yet, but was smelling fuel from the rear - so it was time to change the tank. The old tank didn't look so good when I got it out; it was still running the original fuel pump.





Installed new tank strap brackets; requires dropping the crossmember. It wasn't as much trouble as I thought it would be.



New tank installed Saturday afternoon. I had replaced the main fuel line a few years ago, the other lines didn't look too bad. Brake line over the tank was rusty, knocked off the loose stuff and treated with "Extend" to neutralize the rust. Installation went well; no leaks or fuel smell when I filled it up. Recovered about 2 gallons of fuel from the old tank by powering the pump and squirting it into a can.

fleetw00d - love your work

You are real role model or any owner of classic and or ageing vehicle owner.

I must commend you on your patience and efforts.

What impresses me is your focus on repair, maintenance and not detracting from OEM quality fit and finish.

Almost ALL usually deviates and spend money on mods, speed, look at me show off items skipping out on the essentials.

You actually do what is needed first, thoroughly and properly.

I know not everyone has money but you are also one of the few that demonstrates understanding of boundaries of where DIY starts and stops (limitation of your own skill set and home equipment) and when to seek paid work rather than risking making a partly successful outcome or worse a mess of the job.

Well done!!

There is no hands clapping in the emoticons but if there was I would give you a few.

Wow I thought we did have that hands clapping icon in there. Can someone add that?

Is there a way to update the emoticon to add more? I'm sure there are more than this now on some forums (like the rolling around the floor icon).

DOOOOOOOOOOOH!!! I'm an idiot! Got distracted pulling out of the driveway with another vehicle and brushed Ruby on the right side quarter. Really irritating that it was me that did it; my wife reminded me of my reaction when she wrecked hers (humble pie - see Saving Silver). Most of the damage to the other car was black rubbed off the bumper; most of it came off with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

The Ruby saga continues. I'll send a photo to a Paintless Dent Repair guy I've used in the past and probably run it by the shop that did the paint work and see what they have to say (except "IDIOT").

Thanks. I might have to try it again on a smaller scale on my 93 EX sedan; the rust is starting to come through on the driver side and it appears to be spreading behind the temporary patch (2 years ago?) on the passenger side. Quote from the body shop that painted Ruby was $1700 to do it all on both sides.

Finally corrected a problem that started when I got rear ended. Ever since then, the trunk has been difficult to close and occasionally the "trunk open" warning on the dash would light up even with the trunk closed. Most times I would get out and close the trunk again and that would solve the problem. Recently, after leaving it sit for a few days while driving other vehicles, the battery (5 year old Die Hard Gold) would be dead. I charged it and checked leakage current at just 0.5 mA. This happened twice in a month until I realized that if the warning light on the dash was on that meant that the trunk light was also on; it didn't dawn on me that when the warning light on the dash went out when I pulled the key out, the trunk light stayed on. When I drove it every day, that was enough to keep up with the drain from the light (for those times that it didn't trip the switch), but when I'd leave it sit for a few days it drained the battery.

I replaced the latch/switch assembly and now it latches easily like it used to and the warning light doesn't come on any more. It looks like the old latch/switch was bent from the accident such that the switch didn't reliably trip.

Sometimes it's those pesky "easy" ones that git ya!
