  1. Thanks guys, especially the insight on the covers' deterioration rates and the idea to facilitate water run-off.
  2. Thanks guys for the additional thoughts and experiences. Valued.
  3. Still seeking this New (NOS) Nissan part # 16860-33M17 (or 16860-33M16) (or 16860-33M15) VCM air filter assy Pictures in post #1 Please contact if you have ... or if you know where they can be obtained.
  4. 46, AJ, Thank you both for the follow-up cover-specific recommendations. That's the type of actual experience info I was seeking. Had looked into WeatherTech before posting, but they offer no recourse if there's an issue, stating the covers are custom-made; and, they state it takes several weeks.
  5. Vermont, Dave, John, and 46, Thanks for the thoughts/feedback/ideas/recommendations.
  6. Three questions, please, for those with experience with outdoor car covers. What outdoor car covers (brand and product-line) would you recommend that meet the following: - soft underside that will not scratch or nick the car/paint (during removal/installation or when being blown around in windy conditions) - will stay on the car in moderate windy conditions - are designed (or conform) to the shape of the actual given make/model - provide meaningful, long-term UV protection - provide modest hail protection - and, are easily cleaned on the outer exposed surface (especially from bird guano) What has been your experience with increased risk of rust underneath the covers, by virtue of the moisture not being able to normally readily evaporate? Any other important considerations or lessons learned with your experiences with outdoor car covers? Thanks.

  9. Yeah, and it's surprising the Sonatas have been around that long - 29 years, especially after the early Excels - 32 years now. But, many survivors are still out there. They actually restore well. And, now is a good time, before the parts finish drying up. They don't have the large parts availabilities as the domestic cars. Parts are scant.
  10. First gen Hyundais now qualify for antique status. Excels 1985 through 1992. Sonatas 1988 through 1992. Elantras 1991 through 1992. Recently ordered parts from Fourgreen as part of some full restorations. When the parts were available, they were new, OEM, fully meeting AACA standards. However, various wrong parts were shipped. And, the corresponding listed parts were not available. Efforts to rectify and obtain refunds and returns became protracted and complicated. And, in some cases, shipping costs were not fully refunded. So, while there may be few Hyundais currently undergoing restorations, as time passes, this information may benefit - but also alert - other/future potential buyers. And, since the company also sells current models' parts, those in the market should be alerted to possible complications when wrong parts ship.
  11. SocialM, Thanks for good feedback, including the links. Wasn't familiar with them. Good to know going forward.
  12. Did you end up buying from them? What seat belt type(s) did you get? How was the quality? How direct was the installation, since they claim OEMseatbelts but then say they are all universal? Thanks.
  13. Bump. Still seeking these OEM Nissan parts. Anyone know of any Nissan vendors at Hershey this week? Name of biz and contact info?
