My '88 Cabrio

Post by 514rabbit » Tue Aug 30, 2011 2:33 pm

Hey, folks!

Got an '88 Cabriolet few weeks ago which requires a lot of work... I guess it will keep me busy this winter (as if school and work wasn't enough for me).

The car was running bad so after changing spark plugs I decided to clean the throttle body...

after:

the hex bolts were really seized and I had to destroy 2 of them in order to get the TB out...

... clean TB but now the car doesn't start at all :( a lot more work to do.

Welcome to the TRF.
Thanks :)

I've been trying to find Never Seez products in Canada, no luck so far.

Nice looking car. Welcome to TRF.

You should be able to find Anti Seize compound at Canadian Tire, in the automotive area.
