Hello everyone, thanks for taking the time to stop and read for a bit.
I recently got my hands on what i considered to be a GEM. It came about on offer up and it wasnt very far away. Seller's asking price was 700 and i knew i had to get her..
What mostly captivated my attention was the fact that being the age that it is, it was totally stock.. Giving me an opportunity to properly educate myself before completely investing myself into anything build related.
Dont have many complaints but I do have some concerns, mostly due to kinks that come from old age.....
-Active problem: Parasidic drain coming from somewhere.
(Removed radio to ensure proper connections and checking for lose wiring, all good)(noticed that my glove box light stays on throughout regular operation, even when it's closed. I dont know if theres a sensor there or what not)
-When im driving, only when i come around 2k rpms, the car jerks just a little. Repeats for 2/3 gear enough for me to feel it.
- Currently dealing with some water leaking into the car and this is an urgent matter seeing as where i live, rain is extrmely common...
(P/S rear window doesnt properly seal, dont know if its the actual latch "out" of adjustment or i need new window seals but either way, any recommendations would be hevaily appreciated)
-Carpet needs cleaning and the beige interior on door panels needs some tlc (mostly old oil stains from alot of contact)
-Windshield wiper sprayer HOSE that runs underneath d/s fender is broke so no sprayer action but i can hear motors actuate which im happy to report.
-No AC because I D K. I think i hear the compressor kick on and knock my rpms down a bit but idk how to diagnose nunnofdhat.
I want to know if there are any possible ways of restoring the paint. It looks a little dull and around certain crevaces, it almost appears as if the original color was almost light bluish green instead of black.
Power windows work, d/s is strong but p/s needs help at the half way point of both directions. Im afraid to pull the door panel from it because its firm and hasnt been touched yet.
Retractable antenna motor actuates but the antenna itself is bent in the out position.
It's a 5 speed hahahahaha
I want to place a quick release wheel
I want to put a body kit on it.
Short shifter would feel nice.
Not interested in dropping it, it already sits comfortably low and its already stiff on coil overs from previous owner.
I need tints/alarm and LONG LONG down the line, remote start.
Im excited to get to work... I need some suggestions please. Any help to this newbie will be thanked for and seriously taken into consideration..
