I bought this car to learn. $1000 for a longnose held together with zip ties. So far I've done the suspension and stuck the big brakes on it, and as soon as I finish this post I'll be at 10 so I can send a PM to a dude and buy a Greddy kit.
When I bought this car, the (Wal-Mart) battery was flopping around in the back, with no tray or tie-down. It had eBay coilovers assaulted with a bench grinder to make them fit. There was newspaper in a spark plug hole. I've ironed out all the dangerous stuff, but one thing still needs to be done:
It needs a cooling fan. When I bought it, it was just missing. The AC fan is still there (though the system is gone), so in traffic I just push the AC button and it keeps the motor cool. But god I feel like an idiot.
I thought this was the plug for it, but when I did the paperclip test, it saw no voltage. I took out and tested the coolant fan relay (works), the thermoswitch (works), and the fuse (good). Then I discovered the wonders of a wiring diagram and found out that it wasn't even the right plug. I needed to find yellow.
Here is the yellow wire coming out of the fusebox, disappearing into the bundle. I couldn't find it by trying to follow it and poking around the engine bay, so...
I did a potentially stupid thing and just cut open the bundle that it seemed to disappear into: the one on the passenger side near the igniter. But it's not in there! What the ****!
God damn it, I went back to the garage to double check and I think I found it. After wasting all this time taking pictures and writing about it asking for your help. **** it, I'm posting this anyway so I can get that 10th post. Mods, delete if you see fit. Plz don't baninate me! These people are cool and I can actually use obscenities here.
Here's a picture of my car. XD There, this can be an intro post or something.
