  1. Where to get new carpet?

    I grabbed my carpet from a supplier on jcwhitney. My headliner I reinformed with an epoxy and ordered material from ebay
  2. Wheel Alignment Shims

    My shims have been holding up great for five years.
  3. Anyone ever use these tires?

    The reviews are better than tires thee times the price. I already ordered them, just because i don't know if I am keeping the current rims on my wife's Fiero or not. Many other factors. If they hold up I will let people know.

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Solar-4XS-205-55R16-91H-Tires/831598874 Reviews are as good as any tire at twice as much.
  5. Will -GABRIEL G68703- front struts fit a 1988 Reatta

    Pretty easy to find out. Go to Orielley's and check compatibility between your model and the listed ones. It is on the part main page. Sorry not going to redo leg work I did years ago. There is a difference in front struts but it can be overcome. I don't recall what it is but searching the forum will bring it up.
  6. MPG woes

    I was actually wondering what stock Reatti were getting for mpg. I am managing 18-20 mpg daily driving, with my series II and the F40 6 speed. I need to get her out on a long road trip to see what she can really get.
  7. '91 running rough after warm re-start

    Egr could be sticking.
  8. 89 Cassette player

    You won't get any error messages. But you will need to keep the tape player if you intend to wire a auxiliary input in. Personally if you are going to put USB outlets in, I would use one that has a 3.5 mm jack and hard wire/splice it into the tape deck wires. That way if you lose battery power you can still plug the tape deck in to activate the auxiliary in.
  9. MPG woes

    Using lower grade gas in these cars is actually better for fuel milage. (Without tuning) Higher grade fuels will produce more oxygen in the exhaust. That will make the ecm throw more fuel into the engine.
  10. Go to Firestone and get the lifetime alignment for under $200. I have been using mine sense 2005 probably thirty times so far.
  11. MPG woes

    02 sensor and a general tune up. Do you have any engine codes?
  12. I suggest buying the strut compressor and learning how to do it. Will cost around fifty bucks. If you find a shop willing to install them for you, most shops will not warranty the work or even install parts brought by customers, I would expect $200-$300. If buying them from the shop and having them from the shop and installed by the shop $300-$500.
  13. Go to climate press and hold up and off at the same time. Also read the quick reference guide at the top of the forum.
  14. Stubby ratcheting wrench, or a swivel and extention.
  15. Look at the opening of the socket. If it tapers then grind it flat to get you a better grip. I have done it a couple times. If that doesn't work weld it to the 02 sensor. Had to do that when using seafoam pretty much welded my 02 in.
