Headlights polished out!
Looking clean. I think I actually like the steelies more than the stock rims.
Sexy beast. Time to crush winter! I wish I had one of those, especially now.. Winter in Edmonton.. grr.
Looks nice with those winters..
Soren when are you making threads about your vans?
oooh, shoot. Okay - I should get on that this week..
Yeah! I kinda like the look of the black and white. Maybe it's something to keep in mine when I switch back to the summers...
100,000km maintenance time. New belts, water pump, spark plugs, rad was starting to crack, so a new one there, new hoses. Gonna run like a top!
Are you taking on that work yourself Greg?
What did you use to clean up the headlights?
I used a man. I took it to a shop and they did it for me...Yes I know I could have done it myself, but I didn't.
Nice! Hard to source those parts?
Naw, not bad. I use Ryo at JDMParts. They shipped them on the 10/11th and I picked them up on the 14th.
I figured I should update this, since it didn't go exactly as planned. We ended up needing more parts, so waiting on those from Japan. Amazed with it all apart, it looks like the PO never did an oil change...ever. I know when I got it, it was black, but wow...
Full list of parts...
Radiator Upper Hose
Radiator Lower Hose
Intake Manifold Gasket
Valve Cover Gasket
Cam Bearing Gasket
Cylinder Head O-Rings
Cam Oil Seals
Crank Oil Seal
Fuel Pump O-Ring
Injector Ring #2
Throttle Body Gasket
This should finish it up nicely. I look forward to getting her back, and not drive my parents Mazda Protege...
nice overhaul. she is going to be a good girl for awhile im sure
sweet jebus. G next time you buy a car just get all the parts and assemble it here
Are you talking about mustang connection in Armstrong? Did they ship straight to the island, or did you drive up to pick them up?
This is looks like expensive repairs.
I understand about gaskets and o-rings because it is mainly rubber which deteriorates with time but radiator?
It should last at least 200K kms, is it common issue with Mitsu? I remember you had some issues with Legnum radiator as well...
Radiator had a crack coming in it, as did the Legnum.
Looks extensive! Hopefully it will run like new afterwards.
Yeah, they just have it shipped right from Japan to my house.
Did everything ship at the same time? Did you shipped it that way to get it sooner? Seems like it would be more than "free" Japan to Armstrong and then Greyhound Armstrong to Duncan.
I had the first batch shipped, then as everything got apart, we discovered we needed more gaskets, o-rings, etc...so I had to get a second shipment. Such is life. And yeah, it's just easier to have it shipped direct to my house. Saves me paying for shipping twice, having to wait longer, etc...
