Hmm, do you think the light burl wood:
Snowdog's Riv - Page 6 LBW_big
would look too tacky or "seventies" on a red interior? I ask you because I like your taste in interiors.


I think this one would look good on whit taupe(bege) and maybe whit medium gray.
you should stay whit red colors. it will not look good when you get a trim what is brighter. the sides would show out easely araudn the gauges, vents and so on.
I think the best for red interjor will be Japanese cherry wood and African Zebra wood.
they bouth are a bit red so it would look more like it as come from factory whit it.


Hehe and ty Turtleman.
if i ever will get some free monney...then i have some crazy plans whit the riv lol.
will see what the future brings us.

I think a black wood would look great on red leather.

Yeah, either that or a piano black finish, which would be less expensive/somewhat easier to just paint on very carefully!

today desided to change the fuil filter. cos when i checked it...it seemed like it has been there since the car was buyed..that dam russian did not even change it ! i was sure it was very very old cos it even had rust on it!

was easy to change....just lifted up the car. unpluged the line what comes from fuiltank to the filter. leted the fuil floud out of the line to some pucket.
then opened the filter from other side whit 20mm and 16mm tools.
seemed this filter was so old tat instead of cleaning...(from tank came nice clean golden fuil in) it made it dirty(from other side cone black fuol out).
cone out to test it later. and oh god..it feeled way diferent. run so smooth and did not vibrate on hills. guess on hills the charger made boost but not enaf fuil cone into the engine. the mixture was poor.
Spoiler:
 

thats the nice ''CLEAN'' fuil what came out of the filter.
Spoiler:
 
i don't want to know how dirty the injectors can be...
Spoiler:
 
not sure how much it will keep the heat away from cone. but i hope it dos atleast something.

then truyed the 'chrom' door handle look. whit the aluminium tape.
well i think they where ugly and removed it later.
Spoiler:
 

thats all for now.
if i would ever have TO much free monney lol. then i would have big plans whit it.

The pictures work for me. They are 'spoilers' - you have to click on them to make the pics appear.

How many miles/KMs on that car? If it was the original fuel filter... YECHHH

Quite a coincidence. I was putting the shocks on mine the other day and noticed the fuel filter was original (146k miles) so I bought one last night, was gonna put it on after work today.

Gee, this filter looks like it was going to rust through! Had same thing in my '94 PA Ultra. --->

http://kuva1.kuvablogi.com/iso/img1869299.jpg

Definitely original Delco unit. I prefer to change fuel filter once a year, because when I have read Fuel Injection book, and there author stated that "you can never change fuel filter too often" and I believe him. He also wrote, that many fuel injection problems are because of dirty or even clogged filter!

omg hehe...min e looks like new beside yours happy
well i guess cos people do not know much about fuil filters and of ther locations they do not bother about them so long till the car still moves.
well im goin to start to change it once or twice a year tho.
Maybe will take the fuil injectors off one day clean them and replace new fuelinjector rings.

Today i leted one service place check my car whit the code reader thingy or what ever it was called..

got code for engine miss fireing(P0300)what i knowed anyways cos ''service engine SOON'' light comes on after there is missfireing dedected in engine.

leted him check abs tho...and the reader showed code 36LR so what meaned that cars left rear wheel speed sensor is broken or circuit open.
i thin'k it may be broken then...did not had time to check if the speed sensor is builded in the bearing or is it seperatly...so is it possible to change just the sensor or is it builded in whit the bearing?(what means that for fixing it i have go get one dang..brand new bearing uhhh)

asked the guy if he can get me front rootors and bads..and for what price...found out that he HAD them in the SHOP! YAY!.....but for 150euro..FFS!....oh well...they where just so sheiny so i couldent resist and buyed them..

then cone home to get rid of the old rootors and bads...the right side one vibrated alot....god knows what the last owner did whit it...if i would see him will throw him whit it...cos he has just pissed me so much off whit all the parts and things what he did not change/fix on this poor car!...

Check the wiring to the sensor for any broken wires or bad connections first.
After that if you can not fix it, the hub/bearing and sensor are all one part.
