  1. Craig mate can you tell me how do you conected those wing mirrors? Did you conect the defog function? Thanks is advance
  2. Installed new headlights i now i see much better, i recently had done some things to my trusty civic, changed all 4 shocks for kayaba, keeping stock, much better handling with the new shocks. Also instaled a rear tailgate spoiler, have new front brembo front brakes to put in, new drivers side window regultator and new control arm bushings, will post pics of the bushings has i never saw similar ones, i like them, its oem design, differently from the ones splitted in half that tend to squeak if you dont lube them frequently and get squashed easy. If anyone wants the part number for the bushings i will look for it. I appreciate your precious attencion...have fun. Ricardo Pires
  3. Hello i have this rover 45 wing mirrors that have 2 black wires and one blue one brown and one gray. I already opened the mirror to see and inside the blue wire is divided into two and each one goes to diffetent parts of the mirror motor, atached to the gray in one side and atached to the brown on the other side, this inside the mirror if i make me understand. The thing is i want to know in my MB3 how i conect the wires for the mirror switch and how to make the heating element work. I see people saying my MB3 has heated mirrors, but i dont know, i will check next time if the mirror is warm, i have a button for the heating of the rear window, ut not one for the mirrors. Is there any post of anyone that made this happen? Also i have a problem with my rear window defogger, the button pushes in and lights up but doesnt hold conected, already changed the switch and is the same thing, if anyone can help i apreciate it. Thanks in advance, Ricardo Pires
  4. Hi i just bought this same mirrors did you manage to make it work? I dont want to brake anything. Anyone knows how this mirrors retract? Thanks in advance.
  5. Ok ill have that in mind cause i already changed one with rubber and got busted in no time and i dont like the look of it has less rubber than the one the car had originally. Removing is a pain thats for sure have to cut the sleeve out and put it back in after was even harder...cause i dont have a press but its doable. Are this ones you re telling about?
  6. Kink my fri3nd do you know the part number for the front control arm /suspension bushing? I see you have pu ones, do they last?is the car too stiffer for daily drive? I am looking at these wich seem similar to oem, they have part number 51810SH3003, says 40mm diameter and 12mm i ner diameter unfortunetly doesn sau nothing about lenght.. Thanks mate
  7. Ok just finished tje job thanks to kink43, all went smooth, just for refence i used a tool bought on ebay looks a clamp ill post pictures later. Just to everyone know this inner tie rod fits as a glove, only has to be 14x1.5 thread both sides. My honda is a 5 door MB3. Thanks once again kink, i think kinks photos should be has a diy tutorial. As promised here is the photo of the contraption used to remove the tie rod lol Nothing else now, Peace
  8. hi soory to bother again wit this lol, but is there any torque specs for the inner tie rod?or is just tight enough with the red loctite? i am gonna do this today so just checking to be sure how to install it. thanks p.s i bouthg the tie rod from quinton hazzel brand, part number QR3614s.
  9. Hi mates i installed the rear sway bar but i want to confirm how are the droplinks installed i show pictures of the bar installed but not sure if its done properly. Is it the flat side of the droplinks facing the front of the car? @dr_broon
  10. Congrats mate your mods do look Smart, i like the work you have done so far you have good eye and even better "oily thumb"...i just made up this expression to call for a natural mechanich born from pure entusiasm. Love it, keep it coming mate.
  11. The colour is mesmorasing... I think the colours for Many of these Cars are top notch... pearls and metallized are just beautiful. Nice rims and awsome job on the engine bay, the One pipe looks shiny i bet it takes lots of cursing and back pain to put them looking like that again lol. cheers
  12. Hi folks, i painted my rims chamaleon mainly Cooper gold, but has some green too, i think the photos dont make them justice in person they really pop... Im in love with this color lol. Also carbon wraped the door interior Trim i think its looks ok. I painted the rims and hold myself from buying new ones has the Money might be need for something else more important, for instance the heater Core matrix...a bummer, lol.
  13. if i was sure the rover ones worked that was more easy but i am not sure just eyeballing so i might have to forget it... wich is ok till the winter then will be urgent...mmmm mb il, try and solder it when i take it out, will see what i can arrange till then lol This is my bypass...as promissed might Sparkle someone criativity lol
