No, clamps pull from the window trim to hold in place.

I don't leave the rack on the car since the trim around the windows are plastic, so I just leave it hanging in the garage till needed so unfortunately I couldn't get a closeup for you.

Got the windows tinted and since we had a very nice day I cleaned the car too, feels like I have a new car! :D

I was on my way to the parts store to get parts for my Mazda, I was sitting at a red light in a busy part of town around lunch time, that's when my clutch hydraulics decided to go south and stop working! :bangshead:

Pedal to the floor and stays there. . what to do ? ? :shrug: I immediately hit the flashers, turned the car off and restarted it while in 1st gear. It started and I slowly cruised till I matched 2nd gear all the while there is a line of cars behind me :oops: . I decided to keep going, just wishing for green lights (that didn't happen) and finally made it!

When I got to Advance I checked the master and slave cylinder for leaks but didn't see any so I immediately expect the worse. . . :pissed: (ENGINE/TRANNY REMOVAL) :cry: I limped the car home speeding through lights before turning red and sloooww rolling to an almost standstill if lights were already red, avoiding stopping at all costs!!

Yesterday I bled the system with a vac pump assuming/wishing that air got in the system some how but no change was made and no leaks either. Replaced the master cylinder, bled system again and tested but still no pressure!! It wasn't until after replacing the master cylinder that the slave cylinder started to leak, WTF!! Back to the store again. . . Well anyways I got it going and functions great! I am also very surprised to say that replacing these parts was nowhere near as difficult as I had imagined :D

Yes I sure did! The good part was knowing that there was a new clutch installed in the car (I have the receipt from the PO) but after having fixed previous owner issues I was beginning to have doubts. ..

Regardless it's good now and the pedal pressure is better than before :D

Nice car man! That pic above shows it in really nice shape cosmetically, and with the way you seem to be tackling mechanical issues she should be up to snuff and remain there for a long time. Kudos.

Thank you, I've been working very hard on it. I plan on keeping her on the road for years to come.

Last weekend I picked up a cup holder/radio I found on CL for $30.

When I met up with the guy I was a little letdown that the cup holder was broke and it didn't stay closed but I bought it anyways since these are apparently hard to find from what I have gathered from this forum.

Yesterday I made a tab and epoxied it to the tray in hopes to save this cupholder, very proud of this. I had to figure out how the latch thingy worked and engineered my own piece, carving it from a scrap piece of plastic :D

Today I will attempt to repair the cracked/broken arm gizmo that actually holds the can. If I repair that it'll be good as new!

If anyone wants the radio above I'll let it go cheap ($10 :shrug: plus shipping). It came from a '90 GT
