  1. I've already taken some bump steer and ackermann measurements with the factory steering box and linkage. I used the laser and mirror method. It was my first attempt at anything like this and I made some mistakes, but I tried to document everything as well as I could, and I made some spreadsheets that might be useful to you.

  2. Are the injectors aftermarket? Rochester/Delphi style? When I had a wideband on my car with those injectors, I could see it idle super lean until the car kicked into closed loop, when the computer could start using the O2 sensor feedback to fix the lean condition.
  3. I do it that way too. Just be careful not to bend the dust shields on the axles.
  4. Interesting, thanks. Are you using any thinner or hardener with it? I used that paint on a race car interior years ago, and I remember it taking what felt like forever to dry.
  5. I would recommend starting in Virtual Mechanic.
  6. Hey, mine too! Having one with a little accident history is fine, it'll never sell for $20k on BaT, so you can drive it and mod it guilt-free instead of worrying about its collectible value. That's how I see it, anyway.
  7. Looks great! What kind of paint are you using? Looks like POR-15.
  8. That's a nice looking car. Did it have some front end damage?
  9. I think I remember reading that RX-7 rears were pretty close.
  10. Hey, just saw your post, sorry for the delay! Yes, I still have the compressor. Which hoses do you need? Feel free to send me a private message.
  11. Car-Part.com. Just about every junkyard in the country lists their inventory there. And most of them ship. Good luck.
  12. Search for Carrier. They are still available all over the place and not that expensive.
  13. Hey, glad to see you're back! Thanks for making these great braided lines for our cars.
  14. Sorry to hear that, kev. If you sell that car for anywhere near what you have into it, whoever ends up buying it would be getting a great deal.
