Re: 91 White Turbo Spanish

Your desired wheel choice reminds me of that used on the Lotus Esprit Sport 350. If modification runs hand in hand with preservation then we are in for a treat. Yet another stylish wedge from yesteryear! Wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those too, I'd forego any idea of RWD conversions (whi...

Re: 91 White Turbo Spanish

Thanks for the support, people! The steering wheel I find works pretty good with the car, not willing to part with it. The square one looks fine I guess, but frankly, I prefer this one. The picture doesn't do it justice and the position is a bit further out, which is more comfortable to me. @balto8 ...

Re: Heater Fan

Well, took out the VEM and sure enough, a contact was completely released from the board and one of the tubes in the back had broken off. Soldered the contact, put some epoxy glue on the tube and eventually put it back in the car. Blower now works! All button positions, but only on the highest fan s...

Thanks James, I'm gonna give it a go myself after practicing with a couple of boards off some discarded electronics before I go for the VEM.
