  1. EV conversions can be relatively straightforward. Assuming you are starting w a manual transmission car. I've helped with a couple of VW Beetles over the years. 2 biggest hurdles are fabricating the motor to trans adaptor parts and finding room for batteries. The StarQuest platform is definitely short on battery space. I think you'd end up w some under the hood next to the motor and some in the hatch area.
  2. So.. Yeah, who's got the hook up on stock style air filters? Because I can't seem to locate any
  3. Yeah, completely understandable. IF there was a dealer anywhere near me that wasn't totally inept when presented with anything older than 2020.
  4. Oh. Damn. Well, that's not gonna work. Thanks for the info. I hate supporting the dealer. Hmm, maybe something PTFE??
  5. 2 questions. 1. Power steering reservoir hose, anyone run silicone? The "Gates" parts store stuff is rock hard after a year. 2. Can an admin change my permissions? I like to add some knowledge to the occasional post that I might happen to know something about. And I do know a few things, been a mechanic for decades. Thanks Eric
  6. Email Steve. He's reliable, has a lot of stock and good prices. https://starquestparts.net/ Matter of fact, here's your part. https://starquestparts.net/products/fog-lights-each
  7. Cool. Weird that the listing EXCLUDES the Chrysler years. Anyway, if it's helpful, RockAuto has it for $13 PLUS shipping https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/pioneer,CA3087,speedometer+cable,1440 AND the ATP version for $10.43
  8. That's a damn good question, because I just don't remember. Pretty sure it was North Carolina, March of 2017. Otherwise I'm clueless. There was a picture of a young guy and his girlfriend in the sunvisor mirror.
  9. AHhhh. Ok, sure. I was thinking the other Meta, like one thing in another thing. Kinda. Anyway....
  10. Tux, I must be too old to entirely understand what this means Damn PSU, thanks. Otherwise, 1. Thanks for confirming on the fan situation. I was getting confused tracing the 5 or 6 relays driving the fans. 2. I've got the Schiemann Composites pieces, just need installed, I'll throw some star washers in at the same time and report back.
  11. Hello all, Bought my '88 Quest like 4/5 years ago from a kid on here, drove it from the Carolinas to the Denver area. Posted a few times. Decided check back in, stop lurking, introduce myself and ask a couple of questions. 1. Hatch adjustment? As in is there a way to lock in the proper adjustment? I've adjusted it at least three times. It keeps slipping rearward. Maybe adding some really aggressive star washers?? 2. I swapped in the crank driven cooling fan (and thermo clutch) from a non intercooled car. Do I need to leave the thermo-switches connected for the AC fan??? I'd really like that fan to retain it's ability to kick on if (When?) things get too hot.
