If you have had the stiff steering in one direction or the other, I would suggest lubricating the universal joint (spray grease and normal grease are my recommendations)

You could check the connections to the battery, then if you have a tester get someone to turn key on whilst looking at the tester to see if there's any change, if there's no change then possibly a fuse has gone as there should be some draw, if there's a massive drop then battery is toast

At the moment I think most petrol stations would be glad of sales. Might even be worth getting a fuel tanker, imagine second hand value on those would be lower than an rx8 right now.

Re: Yorins Definitely Stable Financial Desicion I Swear

I would clamp some mole grips onto the head of the screw (that's what I did) the other option is to cut a slot and use a flat blade screwdriver or file 2 flats in opposite sides of the head Anna use an adjustable spanner

A bit of work going on right now, needed to get rid of some scratches and chips, now this won't be body shop quality, but should at least look far better. I'm only on one coat of base as of yet, so a bit to go.
