ANY BUYING/SELLING IN THIS FORUM WILL RESULT IN AN INSTANT BAN!

Read the rules: http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=43956

Myself, and the other mods have been very nice and lenient with the rules. We have been deleting threads, and giving out warnings. Some members didn't get the clue and re-posted over and over... Now ANY member buying or selling in this section will be banned... No IF's AND's or BUT's.

Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the cb7tuner.com staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:

Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

    Yeah I made sure to remove all of the AC components, I'm probably going to do a manual rack conversion too while I'm at it. The seam sealer around the trunk gutters is drying out and cracking, though I haven't seen any signs of moisture from the backside there, only the seals that I've replaced and no longer leak. The really terrible part about the surprise leaks in the trunk is that all of the interior panels in the trunk were absolutely toast due to mold, but it means that I can see everything that's going on body-wise.

    I'm really trying to find a red coupe for sale to take the grey interior from, but since it's 2022 that's probably going to be impossible. That's one of the things that I intend on doing no matter what, whether I find original grey parts or not, is ditching the tan interior.

      There is a guy who makes manual converted racks.
      He is on Instagram as chiznizzle_cb7.

      I've though of going manual rack myself too. Let me know how that works for you.

        Spent my time after work setting up the wiring for the JDM headlights, I decided to wire them in permanently instead of making a jumper because.. well, I don't like jumpers. I also fixed the taillight wiring which the previous owner messed up, so now everything works now and is therefore street legal.



        The only other piece of wiring that I need to tackle somewhat soon is removing the car alarm system, as it's malfunctioning by locking the car automatically when I don't want it to, it came with the car so I have no qualms over removing it entirely. (It's also the likely culprit of a battery drain that is infuriating) I also tried to clean the seatbelt where there is a section of mildew with a bristle brush and soap + water, though it didn't really remove the staining. (Pic is before cleaning)

          Today I finished up most of what I needed done to drive the car, and I insured it. I started by removing the old alarm system that wasn't working correctly and undoing the ungodly mess that the installers made, now I don't get locked in the car! I noticed that the P and D4 lights were both on solid at the same time when it was idling, and in drive there was "no power". I decided to do the logical thing with a 28 year old car, unplugging the TCU and plugging it back in again after blowing out the connectors like an N64 cartridge. Suddenly everything worked after putting it back together, so yay. The test drive didn't highlight anything strange other than the car needing an alignment, the steering wheel was about 5 degrees off center but it drove and braked straight.
