Afternoon
well time for a huge update on the spyder. After sitting for over 10 years now it is alive. Got the wiring problems fixed,put in a new coil pack (the one in it was very weak) put in a new temp sensor also.

It is running right now on e85 1600cc injectors and the stock mas. just have to plug the SD back in and make the changes in link.

It is leaking from the drain tube at the turbo right now but that is a easy fix. Then just have to get an aliment and have it tuned then it can be my new d.d just like it was when I bought it new
tonight
Got new gaskets on the drain tube no more oil leaks. Got it running on the SD set up. But now I have to pull the tranny back out of the car. It can be shifted into 3rd and 4th gear when it is running with out the clutch and there is nothing there all the other gears are fine. Just sucks but the tranny was a free be.

Pulled the tranny out when I got home from work this afternoon. The 3rd/4th shift fork has seen better days. Just need to find one then it will be ready to go.

Got the new clutch fork from jacks on sat. Also brought the tranny to work to clean it up on sat. It is now all back together and painted with alum paint. Craig is going to give me a hand getting it back in tomorrow.

The white one was still mint under the paint but was cracked in a few spots after sitting for so long and when it had crap piled on the car. Got one from the junk yard and plasti dipped it to make it look new. I had the wiper arms from a 97 awd Spyder shell I parted out.

Got a set of black 3G Spyder belts from Ben (ben4g63t) whe he went to the junk yard. Got to work on them a little bit today. I took apart one of my extra tan front belts out of the 2g mount. Then took apart the 3G belt they do not come apart easy like the 2g did. Had to cut the frame apart and use a hammer and chisel on the alum drum for the belt it self. Tomorrow I will dye the faded front belts back to black.

Forgot yesterday I drove the spyder into the garage. It is the first time it has been driven in almost 11 years :) even though it was a short drive it still was great to do it.

Today I. Got the rear black seat belts swapped into the the spyder rear belt brackets. It has not had rear seat belts in it for ever since I would not let anyone sit in the back since it is not really a real seat any way.
One done one to go

Now all that is tan is the rear seat. Just have to find a black leather or fabric don't care any more out of any gen spyder since they will all fit in it

Found a set of black cloth 3G Spyder seats on Craig's list tonight. Got the fronts and back for 30.00. Just wanted the rears. Ended up meeting Cornfed on the way home and gave him the fronts since they are bolt in for a 2g so he can put them in the talon shell for someone when they buy it.

They match the Evo 3 recaros pretty well they have the same pattern on them

The upper rear sits higher then a 2g but that is all that changed with the 3G seat it clipped right in.

Well for the first time in 11 years the car was on the road. Drove it around the block did not want to take it far since the tabs are from 03 when it was sitting in the drive way.

Took a few new pics today also.
