Central console assembly and installation.

Time come to assemble and install the central console. But first, knowing my luck, I've decided to change OBC back-light to LED from Garagistic. I didn't want to assemble central console back and face dead OBC lights after the short time. Received LED insert: https://s19.postimg.cc/c22ufxm4z/led.01....

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Where did you buy the digital guages? Those look great. You can contact Roland directly, in one of the previous posts I put a link to the thread where he gave permission to publish his email. He will respect GB prices depending of how many units you'll order. I put an order for 2 and he gave us dis...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Yes, this should work.
Looks like a good place, the rest is the same, drill, tap, install boss, screw in temp sensor.

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Temp sender as a drain plug seems to be easiest and simple solution, if you're OK with the wire that should be disconnected/connected during oil changes. It takes female spade connector so shouldn't be an issue, but if it's not you who is doing the oil change, then this person should be warned. Dril...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Dean, my car doesn't have cooler. I've used this instruction to install senders. Pressure sender can be installed using adapter on the block near firewall where pressure switch is. You can replace pressure switch with pressure sender with double connectors to retain warning lights and connect pressu...

This washer tubing install looks clean.
I will tackle underhood lights when I'l work on insulation. The one I have now doesn't work either, I suspect bad wiring.

Instrument cluster repaint went wrong.

Initially, I wanted to use junkyard cluster with its housing for digital gauges installation. But coating inside of the cluster looked faded to me and since the clear cover was already detached I decided to refresh insides with matte paint. https://s19.postimg.cc/popm2fosz/cluster.02.jpg It didn't g...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Dean:
Good idea, I'll look into that.
I don't see any wool insulation on your photos and there is some on mine. Have you removed it as well? The fan looks brand new too. I have a motor coming in but not sure if I have to change it, as original one seems to be still OK.

Central console re-gluing.

The next necessary step was the restoration of the central console. During the years, plywood got cracked and got separate from plastic, where glue seems to dry out. https://s19.postimg.cc/k4d4rspxv/c8a0289s-480.jpg This glue from dollar store seems to be working pretty well.

Your car seems to be a twin of mine at birth. I wonder why Nutria interiors were so popular in Canada?
If you're around GTA we can get together, we have bunch of 6ers over there.
