Interior cleaner and a Magic Eraser works wonders to clean leather seats, but you have to be careful so you donít end up pulling the dye out of the seat. As for softening it, Iíve heard Vaseline will do the job but I donít have any experience with that so further research is needed.

Not sure the best way to clean those black leather seats. Some parts of the seats are pretty dry & hard. Just might spray them off & rub them down w/ something.

We'll see what happens.


Not sure how bad the leather is, but give Leatherique a try. If that doesn't work, my next suggestion before getting them re-wrapped is Connolly Hide Food.

If neither of those work, then you can at least use those products on other **** around the house like purses, shoes, belts, etc.

That Connolly works wonders on purses if you have an S.O. that has a worn-out bag. Massage it into the leather, leave it out in the sun for a little while, and BAM! good to go.

You know way too much about purses.... and you have no S.O... which leads to believe one thing for sure.....

Ok, ok.

Chris, that starter works wonderfully. Cleaned it up a little w/ a wire wheel & installed that last Friday during lunch. Much better than that loud piece of chit I got from Hoe'Riellys.

Got some vids of both I'll upload sometime.

And yesterday I went to the car wash & power washed the carpet & other floor mats.
I want to get the carpet in this weekend since it will be "somewhat" cooler.

I'm glad it worked well! I sounded good when I pulled it out of that junk car, so I didn't expect any surprises.

For the love of all that is holy don't use petroleum on leather, Meguiar's Gold Class leather cleaner and conditioner works really well.

Alright, alright, alright!!

Here are the vid of the crap reman. Hoe'Riellys starter...
VIDEO0020 by Devin Caldwell, on Flickr

And the one I got from Chris...
VIDEO0021 by Devin Caldwell, on Flickr

It's kinda hard to tell on video, but it's a night and day difference. Some at the Midwest Meet 18' heard the crap starter. (Did that around June 29th.)


Got the 7th gen seat swapped over to the 6th gen, looks pretty decent, feels good... (Did that on July 8th.)



Cleaned the back seats & pass. side front seat. I just used some warm water w/ dish soap & tried that MrClean MagicEraser. That combo worked well since the seats got a little red spray paint over-spray from a house project I did.

Put the back seat in... (Did that July 24th.)


And the pass. front seat...


Now I can have passengers, lol. Was really spacious in there without the other seats.

Then I decided to have a place (that I've used before & they did great work) detail the car. They did a wax & polish then interior, turned out decent for a turd.





Did bring some shine back to some of the hatch & roof that was faded.



Anywho...

A list of current things I need to fix/ address are..
- Oil pan is leaking (previous ****ty RTV job)
- One axle seal (apparently I did something to fudge up the new one putting it in)
- The car has a slight rpm fluctuation at idle (vacuum related? or IAC?, I dunno)
- PCV hose & valve cover to intake hose (brittle & torn)
- Especially above 3k rpm, car seems harsh (like a vibration, could be the front & rear mounts that had slight tears in them(noticed when change the clutch), or the cheap Nittos that are on the car) I don't recall this vibration when I bought the car, maybe it happened after the clutch change, maybe its in my head, I dunno.

That's about what my mind can publish tonight.

Kinda forgot I had this picture. Interesting that how rust free the chassis is, one would think it was a southern car.

Shiny indeed. Gives me inspiration to polish mine, it is needing more than wax now.

Does it look like the wiring and housing has been modified? It's been years but I want to say my third brake light used 194/921 style bulbs.

Nope hasn't been modified.

It is just super confusing.
On page 186 of the owners manual, it says the "High mounted stoplight" is a 921 BUT designates it as a "C, Single end bulbs".
But a 921 is "D, Wedge base bulbs".

BUT Its a 1156! Aaaaaggggghhhhhh!

I think I did the same thing several years ago. Bought 924 LEDís per a lighting guide I found online (maybe even here on the forum) but when they came in and I went to replace the bulb, I found it was an 1156 and I had to order different bulbs. Then I found that thereís an issue in my wiring after the paint job and Iíve never bothered to track it down, so I just donít have a third brake light. Who needs safety equipment, amirite?
