I\'ve been lucky enough to become the new owner of Laeeq old yellow car.
The car is a bit tatty on the body work and interior. It\'s taken a knock on the right rear panel by the exhasut pipe - looks like a reversing .... up. Right rear corner has been battered as if driven down/up a kerb/slope and misjudged the skirt height. So, some work there to do.
The interior is not too bad but lots of loose wires everywhere, ICE ripped out in the rear hatch but it has a CASKA 2-din CD/radio/TV unit but it is not connected - just laying loose on the carpet when I got the car. These only appear to be on sale is Oz/NZ and can\'t find a manual online. All the ICE in the boot was ripped out before I bought the car. Just crudely cut wires filling the boot space. Bit of a mess. I won\'t put the ICE back in to the rear hatch. I\'ll try to install a more modest CD/radio set up.
Q: Can anyone help with a CASKA manual?
Lights on the front - well, I think they\'ve got to come out. They are only going to get smashed anyway.
Viper alarm working. I\'m not familiar with the alarm apart from the basics.
Q: Can anyone help with a Viper 500XV manual?
The mechanicals look in great condition and the engine runs smoothily, starts fine, pulls fine, no undue noises or issues as far as I can tell. That engine is powerful! Excellent!
I have a bunch of questions some of you may be able to help with:
I know Nathan owned the car up until july 2005 at least. However, I have no evidence of any work on the car between then and February 2007.
Q: Does anyone know of the cars activity from summer 2005 until 2007?
Q: Anyone have any pictures of the car that you wouldn\'t mind sharing with me? (apart from the ones on the forums)
Q: The spare wheel well was half full of water. Is rear \'hatch water leak\' a known common problem?
Q: The front side-lights are high intensity blue lights. Are these illegal?
I would like to bring the cars to shows and meet some RX7 fans. Looking forward to some events.
Thanks for reading.:WaveBye
Good news that atleast ths car has gone to good home at last. However, after reading your long e-mail; full of random questions and few points in your post above that all these problems or issues you have with the car are all down to me when sold the car.:xconfused:rolleyes::rolleyes:
I sold the car in tip top condition with loads of extra work done and money spent on her from a very first day i collected off nathan. I had to get new down pipe made, new wastegate fitted, turned the blitz front mount into v-mount, different wheels (not th ones on the car atm) new front lips, canards, custom GT wing, new all sides and rear skirts made in ally. Made R-magic style lights (very reason why i got banned here because there was a fear that i was mass producing these in my kitchen) all done by myself to bring that car to best possible condition; looks and drive wise. The ONLY reason i sold that car was because it was yellow:3Confused got noticed where ever i went and did not like too much attention that car bought...:2Rolleyes
I had a call few days later after i had sold the car to Jin, that he had someone hit the back while the car was parked at Heathrow.
He also had a soft spot for fog lights and neons etc:rolleyes: The wheels, sound system, tv etc were all his choice. I had no right to tell him on what to do as i did not own that car anymore.
