    Can I humbly suggest my posts on how to check the oil level and ATF level then?

    The oil level post is probably CA18DET specific (does the SR20 have a similarly retarded design?), though the ATF "guide" is universal for pretty much all auto boxes.

    Sure . If you you can remember where you put your guide threads/posts on other stuff like electric mirror wiring, that'd be cool too (I'll cut and paste them into their own threads). I'll bung in the composite CA18det wiring diagram you did too .

    The SR20 dipstick is infinitely better than the CA one . It's a flat piece of metal with an H and a L on it, and it doesn't scrub off when you pull it out the tube

    OK, here is the JDM folding mirror writeup

    There's a writeup pending for HIDs into an S13, too, but I'm still waiting for two little bits for it from driftworks ...

    I'm sure there was something I promised to do for missy for the newsletter too, but I can't remember what now, or what else I've done now.

    I suppose we could do with a guide on how to wire in a stereo without breaking something and where to get power behind the dash without overstressing stuff.

    Edit: It'll be nice to have the reconstituted wiring diagram see the light of day - that was one thing that really really annoyed me whilst trying to follow it

    bush replacement possibly the easiest ones to change are the front tie bar bushes exc the anti-roll bar ones! i find the easiest way is to remove whichever part the bush is being replced on make sure no brake lines wires etc are in close proximity to bush and using a blowtorch (a 20 quid one from b&q is ideal) burn the bush out it doesnt need to be burned completely just enough to move it in it's housing next a hammer and chisel or better a drift and hit metal case of bush a few knocks is usually enough to see it out. if your fitting standard bushes i'd advise pressing them in poly ones just fit right in makes life so much easier!

    i had the same problem when i did mine...all i did was grind a spanner down so i could do small turns at a time and spinning the spanner as i was doing it...it worked a treat.! 12mm i think!
