There may not be pix if I have to put it in the shop rather than doing it myself or dad doing it. But Saul came to the rescue, yet again, with a source of the same paint for half the price! I found a kit with all of the parts I need for the repair: the timing belt, the timing belt tensioner pulleys, the A/C belt, alternator belt, timing belt tensioner spring, valve cover gasket with grommets, and front cam/crank seals for $150 shipped. I also found the oil pan gaskets and rear main seal for $40 on eBay. That's all the stuff the mechanic estimated to cost around $700, for around $200. That ain't bad. And there definitely won't be pix cause I have summer classes and dad has gotten really shaky and doesn't trust himself to do it. So there's about $400 in labor, but it needs to be done...
So many posts and projects, so little time...
Sorry... had to say that before this. I was just talking to Saul about 10 minutes ago(forgot to mention in last post), and he suggested that since we have been having so many problems fitting the CarPC under my seat, to use the space that the glove box occupies for it. What do you all think?
How much space is available in the dash? Is it double-DIN? How deep?
Although the glove box looks big, it may not be big enough. What do your rear seats look like? Ever thought of making a center console for the rear?
EDIT, never mind, doesn't look like there is a center console in the front, so it would look awkward. Take pictures of you entire interior, maybe you can do something like I am and putting the computer behind a body panel. Take pictures of the rear panels next to the passenger seats. Maybe the PC can be hidden behind one.
That is the 98 interior, but I am sure yours is the same. See the area I high lighted, maybe the PC will fit behind there. Only thing is, you will have to get the PC running 100% and do everything on point. Otherwise you will have to take apart the panel all the time.
That panel is a PITA to take apart, not to mention, the case would be right against the exposed metal, meaning every bit of heat will transfer to the PC. But some kind of material could be put in there to take care of that. I'll take it apart later check it out and take some pix. I was stupid today. I skipped the last half of the last day of school(we were just playing cards in the commons area) to go swimming at a friends. We managed to give her little brother a concussion cause he wanted us to throw him in, but he's OK now. I, on the other hand, didn't drink enough water(like an idiot) and am now dehydrated and sunburnt.
