  2. Plans are underway for the 2022 All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show. The All Mitsu Cookout is a once a year show for all Mitsu built vehicles. There is no car show like this anywhere and no bigger Mitsu event in the Upper Midwest! This year's event is happening on Sunday, August 28th from 11am to 4pm. It will be at Ramsey Central Park, in Ramsey, MN. This park offers a large paved parking lot and a really nice pavilion right next to the parking lot. We have a Facebook event to get info from. It is at: https://www.facebook.com/events/374018278118647 Come enjoy the day with your fellow Mitsu nuts! -Curt

  3. So today I had some time, so I decided I would give removing this spoiler a whirl. I stood right here and stared at this for a while trying to decide if I really wanted to attempt this.... First thing to remove is the hex heads on each corner. If you've ever tried to remove one of these before and had trouble it might be b/c you didn't even know these existed. The FSM states that you need to cut down a 5mm Hex in order to get this bolt out. So that's what I did. They were pretty easy to get to then. Didn't have too much trouble getting them out, even though I'm guessing they've never been removed. Next, I tapped off my trunk so I didn't damage the paint. This is only piece of tape, but at one point I had 3 pieces on there. Then I just slowly used a 5 in 1 tool like kev suggested above and worked my way all the way across punching through the adhesive. At some point in the process I took a break and removed the 6 nuts that are on the underside. There are 3 closest to you when you're standing behind the car, and 3 closer to the glass. If they've never been removed, there will be a silvery tape over the holes you have to cut through (I used an Xacto blade) to access the nuts. I was hoping that I could just force the spoiler up and rotate it 180 to break the adhesive on the top, but no such luck. I had to tape and come from the other side too. Same process with the 5 in 1 tool. Once I did that, which probably took me and hour or more, being very careful, I was able to remove the spoiler. Here's a close up of the adhesive residue. It was funny seeing the red again after the car being paint for several years now. Here's a shot of the whole thing. After dinner and went out and used some Goo-Be-Gone and a razor blade to remove all the adhesive residue. Reason being is I'm going to put the spoiler right back on and I don't want it to re-stick. I just wanted to see if I could even get it off so I knew what all I had to take to paint. I have a few car shows coming up I'd like to attend before the new natch would be painted, so I need to put the spoiler back on. I forgot to take a pic of it all cleaned up, but I'll take one tomorrow and post it. The pics and write-up make it look pretty quick and easy, but I assure it was not. I'd much rather do this on a car that would still need to be painted, not one that's already been painted. Proceed with caution is my advice.

  4. So the plan is to get as much body work done as possible and get the shell in color. I will be converting the shed and house 3 car garage into paint booths. The shed will handle all black chassis parts and the garage all body color parts. Anyone in the PA area can help with paint supplies let me know, looking for a new paint system and striking out so far. I did stop buy Colours to see what PPG would run and im at $2200 using the lowest quality of everything possible. Im looking into different colors and that could drop it a few hundred. I'm cleaning out the engine compartment and eliminating wiring / brackets that won't be used. The whole conquest passenger side harness will not be used and was pulled. On the inside kick panel, the EEC relay is also your fuel pump feed and the other connector feeds fused power and ignition switch power to the EEC that will come in handy for the Ford EEC. The Ford engine harness will occupie this space and will probably require a lot of modifications to look OEM. The harness on the drivers side I was very disappointed it continues behind the dash and is not easily pulled. I decided to just slice open sections to remove all the unused connectors and wires. Not planning on a wire tuck at this time just clean up what's there and do something about the bundle of fusible links. B-30 is the connector going to the large gold relay you can see in the above wiring harness. Coming out of that relay is the power feed going to the fuel pump on the single wire spade connector. B-38 is the white connector that has lots of fused and ignition power that I will use for the Ford EEC. The yellow and blue connectors go the Conquest ECI that was removed a long time ago.

  5. This guide is more geared for those looking to upload directly from their phones as I think that's how most of you are getting your pictures/videos these days. Download the Imgur app from the App Store/Play store Once installed, launch it, and it'll ask for an account. If you have one already, sign in. If not, make one. Don't forget your password. Once signed in, tap the "+" icon to upload an image/video At the next page, there should be a green button asking for permission to view your photos. Tap it to grant the Imgur app permission to your phone's storage Now you should see your pictures/videos in the app. Select them, then tap "Next" At the final page, it will ask for a title, which is optional. Enter one if you want If you're uploading a video, there should now be a crossed-out speaker icon in the top-right. Tap that to UNMUTE your video if you wish Tap Upload in the top-right to upload it to Imgur Once it's finished uploading, there should be a green notification. Tap that to view your post If it's not there, just tap the profile icon in the bottom-right to see all of your account's uploads Open your picture/video (if not opened already), then long-press it and tap "Copy Post Link" (or "Copy URL" from the Android app) Paste the link directly into your post here on the forum If your link ends with .png/.jpg (the file type), the new forum software should pick up on it and automatically embed your picture in your post. This unfortunately does not seem to work for Imgur videos (yet).
