  • What have you done to your Festiva today!?

    Over on w-body, we have a "What have you done to your w-body lately" thread, and it's pretty nice for just the little things you feel to share, but don't necessarily deserve their own thread.



    As for me-




    Today, I replaced my downpipe, BUT it only got just a little quieter, because it's still leaking out of the top flange. The manifold is so rusted and crap that the threads rusted so I can't even get them tightened together.....

    Anyone have a good used one? Lol

      What did I do to my Festiva today? I drove it! Oh, and I got a new air filter. The other one looked like I had used it as a spare at the dirt track! Oi!

                        It's got about 220,xxx on it and the rings are shot and so are the valve guides I believe. It's just easier to swap another motor in

                          Went to the junkyard and got an escort rear wiper gear, long leg cartridge fuses, a caliper bleeder screw, oil dipstick and a bonus trailer light adapter to convert separate turn/brakes into the 4 wire system on trailers.

                            If no one from the future stops you from doing it, how bad of a decision can it really be?
