    Like I said, inelegant but functional (before the headlight relay harness; click to enlarge):

    Here's an inelegant but functional approach that might work for some people. In my 2000 MGM, I have a whole bunch of 10 gauge wires (individually fused) running from the battery through the firewall...

    That's an interesting accomplishment, though at this point I can't keep refraining from commenting on the frame rust. If that was me, I would have at least bathed it in WD-40 before putting on new...

    Just prior to writing this, I noticed two ads blocked in the WAYWO thread, eight (probably while previewing a post) and then two (after posting) in my exhaust thread, two in the "Forum" page, and two...

    Do you really think this thread would have gotten to this point if that was the case?

    For those who would rather just pay someone to do it and not worry about the finer points of welding, do what...

    Maybe you can afford to throw $200 at something without regard to whether it will last for two years or 10+, but I can't. And given that no one here seems to have any expertise in this area, maybe...

    I had a chat about this with my father, who has experience welding stainless for food industry applications. Apparently back-purging is only an issue for butt connections, in which case the weaker...

    When I looked at this thread the first time, I'm pretty sure my ad blocker icon had a "2" on it, apparently indicating two ads were being blocked on this page. I didn't think much of it at the time,...

    A more significant issue for me is if one shop thinks they can charge an extra $40 without doing anything extra, then no thanks. It could be that the lesser-quality weld is not significant in our...

    This might help (from Googling "2003 MY OBD System Operation"):

    I just went through it quickly and didn't see an...

    I'm guessing the broken part of the key is still in the cylinder, so wouldn't that be enough to get the cylinder to turn to the run position? If it's only partly in, what about using thin needlenose...

    I don't know about your particular vehicle, but for the sake of giving you something to think about before others chime in, it's probably a matter of only removing the cover on the steering column...

    Here’s a video that explicitly demonstrates the results of using and not using argon on the backside of the weld, with the final ‘show and tell’ being around 11:10:

    Before that...

    I looked into this stuff a bit and found that a significant issue with doing flanges is warpage. There's also an issue of getting an undesirable weaking of the weld if the heated metal is exposed to...

    It looks like their most easterly one is Cambridge (I'm in the GTA), but I'll be going to Stratford to see Shakespeare's rarely-staged "Henry VIII" (the asshole who killed his wives and took over the...

    I finally got around to putting on my used replacement wheels today. Unfortunately, I'm not going to call this a "win" at this point. When I deflated the used tires and pressed around them to flex...

    One of the two places I emailed wanted $240 for a flange job. (All prices here are CDN$ plus taxes.) The other did not respond. The Zoro in Mississauga would not provide an estimate without seeing...

    I finally got the brake fluid to the point where it's good enough for me. The vacuum cleaner approach speeded things up, but the speed bleeders would probably be a lot faster. I think I'll put those...

    Just did proof of concept for my vacuum cleaner approach with some water. Wow. :bugeyes:

    This guy was talking about using pipe without any flanges (and without even having looked under the car). And he looked at me like I was the one who didn't know what I was talking about....

    I was hoping to have this issue behind me today. Some weeks ago, I noticed a local exhaust shop while on my bike, and someone who seemed to know what he was doing said they could weld on new flanges...

    A very old rubber-safe product that many have probably heard about is Ru-Glyde. It’s primary use is for mounting tires, but it can apparently be used for “tire dressing” too. Here are some screen...

    I'm aware of a stock splash shield for the front of aeros that will apparently fit on whales. It took me awhile to remember learning about an aftermarket one for the rear. When the name Reinhart came...

    That's an interesting option. I guess it's one of those things that the car companies can't be bothered to install themselves. I'll probably stick with my vacuum cleaner approach if it works well...

    From the WAYWO thread:



    I just thought of a way to do the brake bleeding in a way that always ensures air does not get pushed into the caliper. My usual jar has a single hose going through the...
