Installed a new O2 Upstream Sensor since I was under.

Installed a new lightweight battery for the summer season.

And just currently perplexed if Im missing two hoses for my oil cooler pan that sync with my new radiator - after learning they werent in my Z1 Master Hose Kit; unless they are with their shapes being different.

Currently standing by for Z1s response pic 2.

Awesome job! I had once purchased these but returned them due to the expected difficulty in installing them.

How much of a pain was it to install? Did you have to remove things to access the hoses and how many of the hoses have liquid in them that would leak when disconnected?

I would love to do this as well.

The hoses are all full of fluid. That's why you do it at the same time as a cooling system overhaul and an oil change!

I had a long weekend and good driveway weather, so I pulled my interior apart to find some rattles and wash the carpets. Found the offending acorns and broken clips....and I'm now working on the "while its apart" list

1) Ran wiring for a 5 ch amp to replace bosey-blowsy and did some sound deadening in cabin and trunk. Moved the front components back to rear seat, installed new kappas in the front. Moved the escort over to its own fused line and wired in a dash cam.

2) A few months ago, my dog punched a paw through the apparently thin/brittle passenger seat during an emergency drive to the vet, which was like the icing on a sh*t sandwich of a day...but she's fine now and seats can be fixed, right? Grandma was a seamstress and upholsterer, and while I haven't done any upholstery without her help, I think she blessed me with enough skills to make this work....
So I pulled front seat upholstery off started disassembly for templating. Ordered some nice vinyl. Going to do a grey thread diamond stitch on the seat and back instead of the perforated...staying with black. Will carry the diamond over to the door and rear seat panels. Not sure if I will attempt to embroider Mt Fuji.
Gotta figure out how to add some oomph back to my front seat bolsters.

3) Trying to re-dye the Push Buttons on the seat belt release

4) Going to install the RJM clutch pedal I bought a while back along with a new slave and stainless line.
Thinking about a short shifter, but need to research.
Input welcome.

^^^I bought new seatbelt units last year since the red buttons had become pink. They were pretty cheap as I recall.

Thx JZ for making me look again...I searched when I originally bought the car, but was having a hard time finding new stock.
Going to give dye a shot on all four because I already have the rear assemblies apart and have time to mess around, but it's nice to have a backup plan if it doesn't work out.

Took a picture of the odometer for taxes, realized I have 271k miles on this thing. At this rate i might make it to 300k in about 18 months. If I don't forget to keep putting oil in it...
