Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

saying the paint contains cyanide is, to be fair is a oversimplification on my part but my point stands.

Re: It seemed like a good idea at the time...

good job i rarely throw anything away :D this is the loom of my original engine with 80k on it and 0 compression across all chambers. ironically, in my opinion caused by a split radiator header tank, and consequentially, no coolant.

this car seems to have a theme.....
