  1. Turns out that while they can be found online for super cheap nobody seems to actually have them. Inquired about them with several suppliers and they all said they were actually unable to get any to me. It's actually the first time I've had any issues getting parts from a supplier online so far though.
  2. I am looking for synchronizer keys and springs for a 1987 5-speed transmission. Part number Md701897 and Md701766. These can be found for super cheap online so mostly I am hoping someone just has them laying around and no longer needs them so I can save $4. I will pay shipping of course. Email response to sandmaster29@gmail.com please. Thanks!
  3. I am looking for an old spoiler. As long as it isn't completely trashed, condition isn't a huge concern. I want to see if my brother and I can fabricate our own aftermarket spoiler for a Starquest project we are working on right now, and I want a spare spoiler to experiment with so I still have the original if anything goes wrong. I don't want a brand new one, or really even one that is in great shape as there is a good chance it will get ruined. Save the nice spoilers for actual use. I'm not wanting to pay anything over $100, so if you have a rear spoiler you'd let go for about that (plus shipping) please let me know. -I love the duck bill spoiler as much as anybody, but I saw a pic of someone with an F40 style spoiler and I want one. --Alternatively if you know of an F40 style spoiler that fits these nicely, please let me know.
  4. According to the Rare Parts post in the Newbs forum a set of side Louvres will run you around $200. Mine came with them, that seems to be the best way to get them. Rear set as well.

    1988 ESI-R Rebuild

    My brother is rebuilding my 1988 ESI-R while I am on AD for the Army. Bigger turbo (gonna run it at 10psi for now) and a 5-speed out of an '87 are going to be added as well.
  6. The power windows wouldn't roll down when I first purchased the car 2 months ago, the previous owner was convinced it must be the relay and gave me a new one. Just installed the new relay last Saturday, still no success. Are there any common issues with the power windows in the'88 models I can look for? With the nice weather here I'd certainly like the luxury of an open window while I am cruising around.
  7. Haha, no speakers. Motors and retractors can always be moved, it is the auto seat belt, but I really only need 2-3 more inches to be more comfortable... I am going to look at it tonight. The only thing i'd consider putting in place of the rear seat is maybe a small mattress for on the fly naptime...
  8. That's what i thought, but sounds pretty awesome! That is definitely something I will be doing, no amps and subs though, just a nice upholstery job!
  9. Welcome! Do something about that atrocious hood scoop. May I make a suggestion: http://www.ebay.com/itm/83-Turbo-Style-FRP-Hood-Starion-Conquest-85-86-87-88-89-/380299748354?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_100&vxp=mtr&hash=item588ba1a402
  10. Does it look clean, or is there still an obvious hole where the seats use to be?? My older brother can do interiors really well, so I am not too concerned with the aftermath, mostly curious.
  11. I'd hold on to the original seat of course, just in case I ever sold it to someone who was opposed to comfort.
  12. I've been pondering this since 5-minutes after I bought the machine, but since I have to have the seat all the way back on the rails, and reclined a bit (and at 6'3" I'm still crammed) I'm very much tempted to take out the back seat entirely and extend the rails for the front seats, both to save weight and increase my comfort. There's also a really annoying guy at work that always rides out for cigarette breaks with me and my coworker, this would prevent his presence from ruining my 4PM smoke. Anyone ever done this? Is it even worth the effort? I'd have enough trunk space to haul a horse around, which would be awesome, but I wouldn't want to do it unless I could get it out without being able to clean up the space where the seat would be. I wouldn't want it to look like some hillbilly just ripped it out one day, I'd want it to look as much like it was built that way originally as possible. Any ideas?
