Re: I removed the short shift kit... No real difference?

From what I've heard rapido only built cars in the same fashion that Steeda does. A dealer would have to be in license with them and send the car directly to rapido for modifications. I doubt many dealerships had this option. If you put a stock 2-piece t-9 shifter in your car (the one with the rubbe...

"NLA" parts source

I've been into merks for 8 years at least and my dad for the past 30, just found out about this. ROCKAUTO.CO.UK look it up. Europeans gotta buy auto parts too right? That's where they get em. Control arms, bushings, radiator hoses, calipers, shocks, struts, everything you could ever want for your ri...

Repairing door pockets

I have found that these can be repaired for about $5 at home depot. Purchase a 1/2" copper pipe cap. Drill a hole in the end of it for the screw to pass through. Trim the top of your presumably broken posts on the pockets flat for the cap to sit flush on. Epoxy the pipe cap to the post with a 1 min ...

Sounds like lifters. Change the oil, if it doesn't go away replace the lifters. Cheap and easy to do.

North MS

Moved down to North MS for school, I'll be here until the summer. There's a car show in Natchez, MS that I've got my mark registered in. Anyone else?

C.V. Joint boots

Let's make this common knowledge: Just finished replacing the boots in my car. Looked up merkur boots and most places list a universal item that is no Bueno. If you need a boot look up application for a 1990 VW Vanagon. The boots are the same inner and outer rear and they are available at advance au...

Re: Replacement Carpet?

call rapido. Pretty sure last known guy who offered carpets. Blugg has good used ones.

I have a carpet from rapido in my car, it is an aftermarket carpet and requires trimming in certain areas for an OEM fit.

Re: Source for door seals?

if you can't get new one from the stateside guys, look up motomobil. They're a ford parts outfit in Germany. They sell new and used parts for just about all euro fords. Prices are fair and shipping isn't too bad. I ordered a turn signal switch off a mk1 capri and received it in 3 weeks. Not too shab...
