so i ordered my lowered king springs last week and when i put them in they made the car sit higher so ,seeing as they are nonreturnable ,i had to use then ,after half an hour with and angle grinder trolley jack and my handy rattle gun ,the struts had come out then in ,out then back in again ,i cut 1 complet coil out of the springs to start of with ,then i put them back in and i still wasnt quite happy with the hieght ,so now it sits pretty much perfect :D
and i hjave finished the rust in the floor with my red primer ,and rust converter (i finished it last week but anyways) and then i was under the passenger floor to find a bit of rust the size of a 50cent coin ,so the carpet has to come up yet again :(
i also finished taping and organising my engine harness ,i have started on the under dash one but it has melted wires everywhere and has had wires replaced which makes it hard to find where they go while trying to follow the factory diagram !
i also finished mounting my coil under the dash ,and im realy happy with where it is sitting ,i pulled the wire out from the engine harness and just kept them behind the grommet so they dont evern go into the engine bay , after sorting that out i used the old choke cable hole to run the coil lead out and i just put a grommet in to fill the rest of the hole :)
i have fitted my good heater tap and has fixed the cable holder aswell as get my fan and little coil thing working aswell ,i hate cold weather!!! haha
oh and thanks to chris ,i have now got the right float cover gaskets ,and dont have to use the ones that were in the kits that i bought (being that i made a new hole to fit but they wouldnt of sealed for long)
oh and after checking his web site kits are $25 each ,when he charged me $50 each !!! so i got the wrong kits and he charged me for 4 of them :(
$25 each for pump diaphrams X2
$25 each for kits X2
$15postage and handling
so i cant see where he has got 50 each from unless the exchange rate added $50 when it was almost the same
chris is a life saver ! i owe you big time !!
