Welcome aboard. No offense, but I'm balls deep in sanding a remarkably similar color off of my 6th gen. These cars are great man. You can beat 'em to death and they still keep chuggin along.

Yea.....color is definitely it's weak point. But, whatever, it's awesome mechanically.

Nice car and good job adding the things you wanted. Looks like this car may have fell into some good hands.

Also, fuel gauge reads low. it barely hits "F" when I fill up, and reads less than 1/4 when I still have 1/2. light comes on with about 4 gallons left. not sure if it's the sender, or the gauge. but not high on the priority list.

I have the same problem in my 88 alltrac. If you figure out why please let us know.

thats the sending unit, it goes goofy over time from age or sitting

I dealt with the color for quite a long time. I'd probably still be dealing with it, but luckily I had the excuse of someone dragging their bumper down my passenger side to sand 'er down, fix everything, and paint 'er a different color. :)

No doubt about it though. These things are mechanical beasts.

i think he will be fine getting out. the snow is all powder so unless it hard pack and froze over night he should be ok.

In that last pic, did you slide into the spot where you are sitting? the tire tracks dont make sense.

lol, I spotted that immediately as well.

That gas mileage seems really low. I wouldn't imagine a little extra weight at the wheels would do that since alot of people add bigger wheels and tires and usually only see a couple miles drop.

Your ST is really well equipped! The only option mine has is cruise... on a 5-speed. Still trying to figure that one out. :blink:
Also, the tire haulin' photos are a riot.

And yeah I know, this is Celicatech....but I would really love to see some photos of your Brat.

using the old spring base to "seat" the threaded sleave?

UtahSleeper

I have seen that quite often actually. IT works since most sleeves are welded right where the perch would be.

I think what he means is most people seem to cut off the stock perch and make a new mounting location for the sleeve.

well the way MOST do it is to measure the old setup, then weld in the perch at the height they want not just use the old perch as the starting point. It doesnt help that you are using a setup salvaged from a different project so who knows that the spring rate and unsprung height is supposed to be. Might be fine for rally but looks rather funny for street driving imho.

UtahSleeper

I think the other reason for welding is people will make the strut housing hold a shorter stroke strut, which would work better when lowered. All the matter sis if it works for you :)

Facime

yeah, maybe the problem is that the spring is for a subie? wrong height/rate?

:dunno:

Do you have a terminal crimper? You probably need to install a new terminal and connector housing for your oil pressure switch. Do you have any pics?
