No idea about that hardline/hose bit. Might be a vent? I can't check my Helms right now.
thats a good idea, i may go with an oil temp gauge.

when i bought this car i sold a 94 s10 to get it. that truck was garbage, but it had every gauge i think a vehicle is supposed to have. tach, speedo, fuel, engine temp, oil pressure, and volt gauge.

well...i wish i had updates but life got in the way this weekend, and my brother is getting married next weekend so i'm not sure how much i'll be able to wrench on the car if at all.

today's detour was working on finishing the inside of my garage.

i figured i would at least try and start tearing some parts off of the car. i got as far as getting the brakes and rotors off lol. the one freakin part i never put back on the car the last guys that owned the car put them on....the set screws on the rotors. as soon as i took the wheels off and seen how rusted up and rounded out they were i knew i was in trouble. 2 hours later though, the brakes and rotors are off. big accomplishment...woohoo....

Well i wire brushed some of the rusted parts of the quarter panels and they are worse than i thought. I just wanted to brush off the flaked rust to get some chassis saver on there to stop the rust from hopefully spreading any further until i can get to cutting and welding new metal in. Well, after two minutes with the wire brush i can now see my driveway through the trunk... Not happy. I'll post a pic later

It sucks, but once the rust is remediated it'll be sooo much better!

ugh!

Clean up the water mark there as well. That's going to be your rust path for the next 10 years.

danteisme's 1996 DB8-Found and Rebuild Thread

Parts showed up!


And the you-pull it yard was a great success today. My brother and i tore into this sedan and left with a rear tan cloth seat, misc interior sensors and pieces, a bunch of body fasteners, a few under hood brackets, 4 window trim pieces in damn near perfect shape, and some perfect looking trunk carpet pieces.


Stupid cheap prices, $80 for everything. The seat needs cleaned up a bit, but i'm confident i can get it clean.

rebuilt the regulator on my air compressor last night, seems to be working well now. if all goes well, i should be able to have some quality time with the integra and an impact gun this weekend lol.

i might start tearing out the interior too

pretty lame update. life keeps gettin in the way of wrench time.

this weekend i pulled the calipers off to exchange for new ones.
the air compressor still doesnt work, so that is really holding me back.

i also fixed the huge crease that used to be in the rad support. its not pretty but the hood latches 100% now.

if i can't get my air compressor working this week, i'll have to borrow my dad's and use it to start getting this suspension off.

i found a bunch more rust between the rear calipers mount to the rear trailing arm (or hub maybe?). what a nightmare...the bolts were worn down to almost nothing from all of the road salt. so, new bolts will definitely be needed.

we'll see how the trailing arms look once i get them off. i REALLY want to take off the rear dust shields too, but if the 4 bolts i see is what holds it in place...oh boy. so much rust and metal deterioration on those bolts. its not gonna be fun.

couple of pics.







you can see it is still a little tweaked in this picture, but thats ok. the hood closes perfect and the bumper will cover the rest.
