So apparently Drift’s sword in the Transformers movies has a universal joint near the hilt. Because reasons.

Make that both swords.

But the wallet doesn’t. Top end of the radiator split on my S-10. Might as well replace the 20 year old hoses and thermostat while im at it.... and ummm... 20 year old coolant :D

Way to go, Amazon

Radiator cap for the RX7 was supposed to come today (the one on there is slightly leaky).

Instead I got a maybe-stant-maybe-generic-chinesium radiator cap in a box which had a different part number than the sticker, which was not at all what I ordered. It’s so tiny.

Supposedly another (correct) one will be here Thursday. Who wants to bet that it’s another maybe-10241 with a 10329 sticker on the...

A mystery

A mystery

This piece of my passenger rear door handle broke off over the holiday sometime in the week after Christmas. I didn’t notice when because I don’t go to that side a lot. My nephew brought it to my attention at laser tag.

Yesterday I went to the dealer to show them and order a new part. He says it will be $60, but he’s not sure if it will have to be painted on top of that. The thing is that...

All the Parts Your Tesla Will Ever Need

All the Parts Your Tesla Will Ever Need

Reading about how hard it is to get replacement parts for Teslas, I thought I’d see what RockAuto has to offer, just out of curiosity.

Wasn’t expecting much, but dang, I really wasn’t expecting to be able to fit so many vehicles in one screenshot. Before grabbing the above pic, I expanded the part categories for all 2018 model year Teslas. This includes parts for the Model 3, Model S, and...

OppositeLogic: Previous owner didn't fix the subframe properly after hitting a curb, therefore I'd like to convert my MR2 to hybrid AWD.

OppositeLogic: Previous owner didn't fix the subframe properly after hitting a curb, <i>therefore</i> I'd like to convert my MR2 to hybrid AWD.

Hear me out.

Parts are entirely discontinued. Front clips are expensive. I’m interested in doing something “a bit different.” The car drives fine, but the welded subframe bolt bugs me. If I’m going to find a repair for this, I’d like to go big.

Since it’d be costly and difficult to source any kind of OEM replacement subframe, the logical choice is to do something costly, creative, and...

Yes...it's like Christmas

Yes...it's like Christmas

All new bushings, new springs, and new shocks for the front end of my f150. 213K miles on it and I’m pretty sure everything minus the shocks hasn’t been touched. Now I just need a weekend to do it.

What's in the box?

Toyota Genuine Parts apparently! Or maybe Lexus parts, but that wouldn’t be of much use in my case...

That is one pricey piece of plastic...

Okay, I feel a bit better now.

Okay, I feel a bit better now.

These things are MINT!

And they smell like the 70's

Now comes the decisions......

Dye them black to match the seats and the already painted dash and quarter trims, or somehow strip the paint from the dash and quarter trims back to original red to match the panels, and have the seats dyed?

*car was originally silver with red interior

Hooray for Carparts!

Hooray for Carparts!

I’m finally, after 4 years of ownership, going to do some real upgrading to the E90. My 335i has been sad lately and deserves some love and attention.

She’s been driving around with a minor leak in the driver’s side front strut, which I was unable to fix for a little bit for monetary and family reasons, but I now have a nice new set of Bilsteins arriving today that will be put on on Monday! I...

Car Parts! UPDATE: 'Twas Added

Car Parts! UPDATE: 'Twas Added

I shall add this tomorrow.

It should make heel toeing much easier.

UPDATE:

Here is is all attached. It definitely makes heel-toeing much easier, I was able to do it in dress shoes so my drift cats and/or driving shoes should work well. I think I'm going to move the slider section to about half it's length though, it's a bit too wide for my boots. It also came with a couple spacers, and I have...

I like how I still have parts to cars I don't even own anymore.

I like how I still have parts to cars I don't even own anymore.

Nostalia? Sloth? Because I might list them on CL one day? Cleaning out the garage is such a humbling experience.

Although this new bumper and grille could be worth a few cents. If I ever sold them maybe.

Anywhere, here’s a cat supervising my inventory.

To OEM or not?

To OEM or not?

So probably about 6 months ago I replaced the alternator on my wife’s Matrix. I bought a Car Quest alternator with a lifetime warranty figuring, “it can’t be too crappy if they have a lifetime warranty right?”

Here I am 6 months later with the alternator bearing taking a shit. I know I can get a replacement for free with the parts warranty, but should I? Or do I pony up and get the OEM...

Oppo's Advice needed with Car Parts Shipping from US

Oppo's Advice needed with Car Parts Shipping from US

Hello dear Opponauts, I come to you today to ask for your invaluable advice on the following problem I have:

My Mark VIII will need new front shocks for its airride system soon as the driver side currently leaks pressure (as they do) which often causes the car to act like its some kind of streetrod or half done lowrider. I learned a few days ago that pressurized air shocks are not allowed to...

Anyone need some 2001 Honda Civic strut mounts?

Anyone need some 2001 Honda Civic strut mounts?

Long story short: I ordered new front strut mounts for my 2001 Civic from Rock Auto. Turns out my car, despite being a 2001, uses the 2002 style strut mount plate on the top of the strut. New parts don’t fit, and can’t be returned because they already “show signs of installation”. The old ones were actually in much better shape than I was led to believe, so I put them back in. So now I’ve...
