Re: Rustproofing

Boeshield sounds like Maxima Chain Wax.
In my opinion, you are never “done” undercoating. It has to be touched-up as new rust forms.
My advice is, don’t let the overspray mist contact your eyes...

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Rear-ending is an epidemic. On the bright side, at least your coworkers haven't started hitting your parked car, yet.

Re: SC2 seat & power steering fluid.

Will a passenger seat cushion fit into the driver seat frame?
Passenger seats are usually in good condition. —Unless there is a neglected sun roof

Modify anything you think will help. Just because the factory didn’t do it...
My A/C barely keeps up with a 90 degree Fahrenheit day in Michigan.

Re: Differential Clicking Noise when First on the Gas

My MP3 had axial play (side-play) in the large bearings that support the entire differential assembly.

Re: Found a JY 1998 SC2 "Red Hot" -- What parts should I pull?

Get the seats if the fabric is good. You can always remove the fabric, throw it in the washing machine and then store it. It takes up no space.
Seat mechanisms/frames are a good spare items.

Re: Tester for Water in Brake Fluid D.O.T. 3 and 4

DOT 5 is probably useful for the old cars I have in storage that are stuck in place due to neglected, ruined brakes.

Thanks everyone. I don’t think I will be convinced until I test some D.O.T. 3 from an unopened metal container.
