Not sure what you mean. I know plenty of guys that drive C900's daily for decades...

My car is perfect. no mechanical issues. runs just as good as anything else on the road and equally reliable.... its a 2014 C900.... look back a few pages. the motor is brand new and whats not brand new has been 100% restored. top and bottom.

is not a grocery getter
its not a weekend car
its not a garage piece

its a practical reliable well engineered automobile... simple... the year mean nothing at this point because every mechanic aspect of the car is either spanking brand new or refurbished....

Only problem I have at the moment is renting a car for 2 days until I get my computers back.

It was mainly a joke, but I think its silly to only have one car that is an ongoing project that you rely on. Things happen, that's why I have 3 cars and 2 bikes (actually I am just crazy and love paying sales tax).

so carrying on with my wood project I added a new bit to the rest of the veneer work.


this look familiar?

it's the good for nothing coin holder near the interior dome light switch in the lower center console.

well I cut off the bottom



then I cut a lil piece of veneer to add an additional switch.

this will control the extra floor lights I added.

once this is stained and varnished I will have questions on how to wire this..

for now here is the initial start...


gonna take the switch over to a graphic shop and have then put a tiny label on the switch that will read "floor"..

cause I am anal like that.....

then i pulled the the spare tools box. it looks rather tired. the boot will get a complete make over as well.

I pulled the foremost portion of my NA boot floor board before I sold the car to salvage. so the boot will get fresh flooring and add the NA floor board and rst the spare tire underneath the floor board after a few mods

so tackling the easy stuff, the box will be remade with Florida Cedarwood.

I began by removing the box and its straps. I picked up a remnant leather bit from the surplus store for 2.00 and cut the straps that hold the box closed.

a nice thick quality piece of hide with really nice colour.

How come you had to mail your old ECU? Why not just download the file and burn it onto a new one?

They didn't sell a BDM or CANUSB at the surplus store.
