Anybody working on their car this weekend? DC/MD/NoVA

Postby lumbercis » Thu Aug 12, 2010 11:41 pm

And wants to get together? I need to change my oil and take a look at a few residual issues related to my just completed Caldina swap. I could do it at my new apartment but Im not sure how much of a dim view my neighbors will take of seeing a rusty old car up on jackstands in their nice enclosed parking area.

If you know anything about speed sensors or wiring in general, and/or idle issues on gen3/4s so much the better.

Of course im willing to help out with whatever you've got going on.

Although its been rainy forecast looks good for Saturday.

Yeah, I'm planning on being at the meet. But my car is fucking embarrassing right now. :P It runs great with the new swap, but the flex section on the stock exhaust is rusted out so I have a nice gurgling exhaust leak. Not to mention the rust behind the rear wheel wells.

Would it be ghetto to get a new exhaust before getting the rust fixed? :doh:

Anybody live in Northern VA? I could use some help with the swap I'm working on...

I have a 1988 All Trac with a ST185 motor in it and I'm having issues on the wiring. Im using the guide that dude put together but some of the directions are just over my head right now... :bangshead:

I have almost all of the required materials and would be willing to meet up at some point but I think I need somebody to point me in the right direction.

I'd be happy to help out with the labor, but I'm completely clueless about wiring. Any wiring gurus out there? Maybe we can make it a mini-meet to help our boy out with his swap? :smokes:

Haha, you're off the hook Rob. Two and half hours drive is a bit much to ask. This local crew needs to step up though. :P
