  1. body and interior

    Kudos to IE and other companies providing aftermarket and remanufactured parts. However, companies can be structured such that legal liabilities ends with the companies and not the individuals. My concern (I am not a lawyer) is personal liability with the individual hobbyist/hack working out of his garage.
  2. body and interior

    I made a set for myself and put on my car. I stopped working on it worrying about potential product liability. For real professional looking re-pro, you may want to get hold of Ryan.
  3. I will take the ATE rotors and the ATE brake lines 4x and clutch line 1x. Thanks.
  4. On RHD cars, it's the opposite. The passenger's wiper moves from the center sidewards; The driver's wiper moves from the side to the center. With some exceptions, the air deflector is on the driver side.
  5. I have a theory: The deflector is there to create an air flow up and over the windshield at speed. The air flow provides some deflection of incoming bugs or other small objects. If this is the case, it is needed in front of the driver. Let the cost accountant sits on the passenger side. Hmm, how to test this theory?
  6. Picture of one on the left side for a RHD.
  7. I replaced my passenger side wiper arm with one that has the air deflector - Just cuz!
  8. This has been bugging me: The windshield wiper on the left has the air deflector and the one on the right does not. Regardless whether the car is RHD or LHD based on the pictures I've seen. Why?
  9. IMHO, air hoses below 3/8" will not adequately drive your air tools.
  10. It's giubo (JOO-boh) according to Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giubo
  11. I worked on 3 Tii clocks and a dozen or so Motometer/Kienzle/VDO clocks with virtually identical movements. Beside resolder the low heat solder joint, lubricate all spindles and gears with clock oil to help get things going. On some of them, the movements will stop a few hours/days later. Blow everything out with the computer keyboard compress air and repeat lubricating all spindles and gears. On a couple of clocks, I repeated this process as many as four times. They are all in working order. Good luck.
  12. The euro style flat lenses are heat molded into the chromed housings. There is no known method to remove them without damaging or distorting them. The reflector material and/or length of the US style are different to protrude into the bulging lens. The housings and the brackets are the same. Lamp sockets may or may not be the same.
  13. Check to see if you wire your on/off switch correctly.
  14. Several things to check: Your Behr AC on/off switch has a wire that runs to the temperature setting knob to the left of the switch. This temperature setting unit has a probe that is/should be inserted into a little opening at the front of your evaporator. Check to see if this is damaged or broken off. Also, there is a black wire coming out of the temperature setting unit that runs back through the firewall and should be connected to the black wire from your compressor. Check to see if this wire is damaged or is connected to the compressor. The last thing to check is to make sure your compressor is grounded properly. Good luck,
