My first car. Guess....

Post by king angeles » Fri Feb 15, 2008 3:05 pm

Just bought my first car and it's just what I've always wanted.

While I'm saving up for the parts and paint, I've been driving around the city with the car
as is ... duct tape all over the top ang dings all around.

I can't wait to see everyones reactions when they're all sick and fed up with my rat car,
and when they finally think that I've gotten rid of it for good....

THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT

THANKS TO THIS GUY FOR DUSTING OFF THE CAR

OFF TO THE TRAFFIC OFFICE FOR TAX PAYMENT AND REGISTRATION

I'll take some more photos looking on details and in what condition it is.
Till next .....

Ta-Da!! That worked 8) You dont look happy at all with your new Cabby. Nope, not at all. Wait till the fun of fixing it comes to play-see if you are still smiling then, LOL.

The Cabby looks like she will be polishing up nicely!!

he he still smiling , stop scaring me man.

but seriously my concern for now is the top. It's the cold season now in Dubai,
and one day I drove all day with the top down but when I tried to put the top up,
it stalled halfway and won't move any more.
I had to bypass the pump and pull the top all the way and lock it.

I read somewhere that this is a common occurence during the cold seasons.
Is there any logic in that?

HMMMM maybe I should wipe the grin off my face.... :?

Check the oil level in the pump, that is on the drivers side rear in the trunk, it could be that the impeller is wonky,and there is a fix for that on Kammy's site. http://WWW.CABBY-INFO.COM
