Not too riced out...Looks to a 90/91 Dx, what's going on below the bumper lights?
Yep , good eye .. 91 DX , d15b2 , L3 .. The cam gear has funky marking :?
there are only 2 factory marks and one that some guy made and it has PM33 stamped on it.
There is no "UP" and the 2 marks that are on there are at like 12 and 10 o-clock ??? WTF ???
Is the the wrong cam gear ? am i supposed to line up to this painted on mark ?
I'll take a pic when i get a min ..
RE: bumper lights , eh .. well the PO has some kind of fog lights hacked in there .. :(
he told me what car they were from but i forgot .. :( .. i'll ask him again ..

That's a lot of smoke packs..Looks like a good find though. That green would be so distracting, I'd always be looking at it in my rearview while driving.
LOL for a second there , i thought "smoke packs" was a car term i wasn't familiar with .. LOL
yeah .. he was definitely smoking in the car .. haha
RE: Green .. that's just about gone .. i put some black quarter plactics and a grey cargo cover and our old blue carpet , i cut out a spare tire cover real quick so the carpet lays flat ..
and you can only see green where the security box goes .. and one small strip where over-spray is on the hatch seal ..
I'll take more pics tomorrow when there is light and batteries .. lol

UPDATE: right now i've replaced the front shocks and i'm going for the back ones now ..
it's AMAZING how "un-sLaMMiNg" the car makes it look SO MUCH BETTER !! :)

No way the hatch stays up on its own.............

I bet the green is holding it up :rofl:
ROFL .. well the green almost knocks me back and makes me drop the hatch .. lol ..
It didn't have hatch struts when i got it .. i added those too .. discards from my daughter ReX ..
but hey , the hatch stays up .. :)

Thanks Mike,
Yeah i really learned a lot on the first build ( still in progress )
It really made getting this one cleaned up quickly much easier ( and possible .. lol )
I couldn't have done it without all the awesome info here at the forum :) :)b :)b :)b :)b

RE: the mirror .. what's it called ? a "wink mirror" .. haha .. KeWL .. :biggrin:
My daughter already has "dibbs" on the mirror ..
She thought that was pretty cool too .. :)

RE: Green .. well .. we'd like to leave some "tribute" to it ..
I'm thinking plexi-glass over the tire space with a nice clear square - black paint border .. and ..
a BaDaZZ green light in the tire hole .. lol

BTW: i discovered 2 strips of LED lighting under the dash :) .. wonder if it's Green .. lolol

see if u cant start removing some of the black overspray on the headlights and taillights might get you pulled over
yeah , funny story, i was asking the PO how he did the tail lights and before i could stop him , he went on about how he really did that "the right way" .. kinda felt bad when i saw the look on his face when i asked him, "what do you think it will take to get it off?" .. he literally looked like this emoticon :shock:

Yeah it looks like a "batmobile" with all the stuff painted black .. I already have the front turn signals pulled and i'll pull the tails & headlights today.

Also, i'm not saying it can't be done .. but i don't think i'll get any tickets with a broken timing belt .. hehe .. :rolleyes1: ..
It's gonna take about 1-2 weeks to get it tagged and inspected .. i don't plan to drive it, even after the timing belt is done .. brakes need a close look next ..

I like the deep blue that comes from EL wire .. like on our shift knob ..
I really need to get my daughter to take a nice night pic with her camera ..

RE: updates on K-ReX .. well brakes , clutch & timing belt ... i didn't take a lot of pics of these last few things .. didn't really plan clutch & timing belt-WP but i'll have some CooL stuff to photo soon
** plus i'm at my Limit on Flickr and i have to find another way to post pics or delete some at flickr **

Ok .. well i started at 6 am yesterday and finished at 6am this morning ( not all on the ReX but .. )
I'm pretty exhausted this morning .. OuCh !! ..

ya mean like "this" :) ..


100_6768b by jeffwilliamsusa, on Flickr

eventually i'll clean it all off .. I'm doing it in stages just for the fun of it ..

Let me ask .. the 91 tails have that "tinted" edge around them .. is that the actual color of the plastic ?
.. if i clean it all , would the tinted edge trim remain ?

The trim is maroon/dark red ish. I think it would look kind of cool if you left the center garnish and trim black, and just cleaned up the tail lights/reverse lights. The trim on my 90 Si is painted matte black (I think it's actually bumper black, same thing though) and it looks really sharp. Only colors that can pull it off are white and black though IMO.

While you're at it you should sand the lettering off of your tail lights :)b
