Re: steering wheel logo, inaccurate tachometer

Thanks for the info. I will start there and let you know how it works. Also I was wondering about the fuel gauge "splash guard" or something that I keep hearing about, and if that is something I could take off while I had the dash disassembled. Thank you!

Re: kansas city?

I think we should do this again in June/July 2015, since I just picked up my XR last weekend. Post up if anyone would be interested in getting together around the KC area.

Just purchased a car that has been sitting--what to check

I know it has a radiator leak and an ac condenser leak. Other than that, what things specific to this car nee...
