Gonna have to get a loan from the bank cuz I only have about 1000 liquid and even spending that I'd be cutting it really close on bills. I don't want to go too much higher than 4000, Ideally closer to 3000.I have 3 weeks of rental coverage so I need to find a car by then.

My gut instinct is telling me miata, Small,, good on gas, entertaining enough, and from the buzz around here reliable and easy to wrench on. Seems like a good starting point. I did kinda fall in love with the aesthetic of the Dodge Daytona and 80d Nissans but I might be biting off more than I can chew with them.

Was looking around for a torrent and found this on youtube. Funimation also has Second Stage on their channel, but nothing later than that. Here's the playlist for First Stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVG7zusJ1t8&list=ELLBPz0QR3ebI

Third, Fifth and Final Stages are readily available on nyaa, but I can't find Fourth Stage anywhere. If anyone has it or knows where to find it, please post it.

I also came across an "Initial D Legend" trilogy, never heard of it but it looks like it was released last year? Also available on nyaa.

Also, here is the complete manga that an anon posted a while ago: https://mega.nz/#F!cQUFHJJa!MFUJaCq-RJ1ry1EAUGOU5w

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

There might be pads that produce less brake dust, there will always be brake dust. Without dust production, the brakes wouldn't brake.

I usually rinse my wheels with a garden hose, gets at least some of it.

Don't use compressed air or dry methods, that dust will fuck up your lungs.

When I clean my car I usually take a good 30-40 minutes just doing the wheels and brakes by hand, it's worth the end result. I was just hoping that there was some sneaky method of combating how much there was.

I don't know of any way to reduce it. Just today I cleaned off quite a bit of brake dust with "wheel and tire cleaner" and a microfiber towel. It came right off. You can probably use dish soap and water just as effectively, unless there is wax on the wheel paint, in which case you don't want to use dish soap on it because it will eat away the wax.

Well after 3 months my new car is officially totaled. honestly that thing was getting on my nerves and I was starting to hate it, but still it was my first car that I actually bought with my own money and got a loan for and shit. Also I can't go anywhere now and can't work so that kinda sucks.

6k I'm on the hook for and might still have to pay a good chunk depending how bad the insurance tries to jew me on the "value" of the car. I didn't even want that car though. 6k is more than I've ever spent on anything in my life, granted it was really the bank's 6k but with 6k I could take care of pretty much other problem in my life for the foreseeable future and move forward from this shitkicking paycheck to paycheck hell I live in now. If I was gonna spend 6k on anything else, my standards would be impeccably high/

I guess I'm just bitter. For 6k I could have bought my dream car in running project condition. The short time I had this car I was constantly irritated by all the inconveniences and problems caused by owning a "new" car (it was a 2007, much newer than anything I've ever owned). Everything being tied to electrical and computer systems. Battery draining, annoying beeper when I wasn't buckled, auto safety locks. Some of the things were just poor design cuz it was a goddamn saturn (the battery is in the trunk, which is opened remotely by the keys which is useless with a dead battery, but can be opened manually with the keys, except the keys lock in the ignition upon trying to turn over the engine with a dead battery. You can fold down the rear seats to access the trunk, but to do so you must pull two pins, located inside the trunk.)

I'm sick of cars that might as well run on magic with arbitrary designs and intentionally user-unfriendly. I'm not handy but I want to be but I can't do shit if everything in a car has to do with electronics or computers.

Why shouldn't I buy an oldass car with a good frame and low mileage?

>$15k house

Do you mean $150k?


Ah. I suppose things like that do vary. It probably helps me that I'm with a larger regional credit union. Smaller ones would probably be more strict. It could also just vary that much.

Look up Dave Ramsey. You might not be able to find much because he seems like the stereotypical "buy my book to find out my secret to ultimate success!" people, but my mom got his high school finance class for me and my brother and while a lot of it seems like just basic common sense in the beginning of it, it might get more specific in more advanced things later on, like how and what to invest in and such (I didn't finish it). Maybe you could find lectures on youtube, I dunno.

The basic gist of it, though, is to not take loans when you don't need to, save and invest, and I suppose have a credit card that you pay off every month to get good credit so you can get things like car loans and mortgages. Saving is important, even if you can only save $20 a month. $20 is more than $0. I think the investing part is pretty big as well, because saving on its own, while a good thing, doesn't really give you much growth over time. I don't think the interest rate on the average savings account is even enough to counteract inflation. I don't think you need to worry about it right now, but once you are properly on your own it would be a good idea to invest in some safe markets.

That's how I would go about it anyway. It does take time, but again, you'll be much better off for it. At least, assuming you and I and everyone else in our generation make it before muh shit hits the fan. If not then all this is moot. With that in mind it would probably be wise to invest in guns, ammo, and protective equipment as well, which it sounds like you may already be doing.

Yeah I took personal finances in college and I have the basic shit more or less figured out, its just digging yourself out of the initial hole you're in when you become an adult and don't have anything. Over the past 5 years when I've been working I've been socking away 100-200 a month at least but once I get up around 2000 something always happens like car shitting the bed or medical bills. I had a lot of medical shit that would just drain me every 6 months or so for years and I finally got it all fixed this past december and was making a lot of money dec-march. Then I had to fix my old car and that took a chunk out of my savings, then that car shit the bed anyway, and then I get this new car a couple months ago and now bam, another huge account draining expense. I'm lucky my parents have helped me as much as they have financially. I've done the math though and looked at what I realistically need to survive and be happy and if I could get like 50k or even 30k together and have a steady job, I would be set for the rest of my life.

Even if I did empty my account now though it still wouldn't be enough for a car that would last more than 6 months, and I still have bills to pay in the interim while I figure this out. I might actually need to take a loan out so I can start earning money again.

And yeah I'm a gun guy. I don't have a lot in experience or hardware, but I have enough to outlast most of the clueless masses and take all their shit. Moot point though cuz 1 month after I'm out of meds I'll be Trevor Phillips.

Sounds like you have a good base then. Unfortunately the only way to get out of these things on your own is to power through it. You're already ahead of most people with the knowledge you have.

You might consider looking at getting a motorcycle license. You could potentially get a running, street legal motorcycle and all the necessary safety equipment for $1000 or less. All Japanese bikes are babby mode to fix, and if you get something like a Honda Rebel that has been made more or less unchanged for 20+ years, parts are everywhere and cheap as fuck. It would only get you through the summer/early fall but maybe it would give you time to save cash for a car without worrying about a loan. I would only consider it if riding appeals to you at all and you can find a good cheap bike, and I only thought of it because I've been thinking of doing the same for other reasons. Even a scooter could work if your job doesn't require going on the highway to get to. Just a thought, there are many things that could prevent it from working.

Just weld the hinges in the upright position if you're worried about the motors failing. You don't have to weld very much and I would think it should be easy to grind off later.

1c4676 No.13474


You might be ableweld the lights in the upright position. Wouldn't have to do a lot so it would likely be easy to grind off later if necessary. I think there may also be some kind of built in latch of some kind that stick them up. That would be preferable over welding, for sure.

All Germans are pretty fussy, but I think E30's are a little less so. I would avoid any other 80s Germans unless you are inclined to dealing with them.

Half the point of getting a car with pop up lights is making them pop.

True, but I was thinking it would be more of a temporary thing (just do a couple small welds on each side and grind off later). Also I mentioned a less permanent solution that may be present from the factory. Though, if you are going to get a shitbox one then I think welded headlights add character.

That would be funny. My friend found a "AE86" the other day for under 4k. It looks pretty good, but I can tell the guy did work to it. It had a Rev counter odometer and shit. Even if the car was fine I hate taking on other peoples projects. I also just started a new job, so I don't really have the cash to spend just yet.

While this guy was fine I also refuse to buy a car from anyone in the NY burrows since more than half the time they're selling you broken shit or ripping you off. I just can't trust them. Even if the car looks great and its a "fair" deal. I've overlooked a few cars from that hellhole of a city. I've been lurking 3-4 states and all of them want 5-10k for their mx5s. Fuck.

Im thinking about buying a '99 nipponese rustbucket

The undercarriage has rust all over the place. Not deep, mainly surface rust, but its still rust. How effective/reliable are the various treatments Dinitrol/FluidFilm/Mike-Sanders/Biskor? Is it worth bothering with? Its the only halfway decent car of the type in my area…

369342 No.13481

Surface rust on suspension components usually is no big deal, but as far as I know, the best treatment is sanding away and applying paint. It really depends on the price and what car it is whether you should bother fixing it out of your pocket. Worst case scenario is replacement parts.

>sand/grind and paint

This is the only fix I know of. If it is just surface rust then this is pretty easy as rust removal goes. If there are major rust spots on the frame, grind away and weld in new steel. Major rust spots on other components (primarily suspension) will necessitate a part replacement.

Sanding and painting shouldn't cost much money but will take a lot of time to do the whole car. Filling in major spots will require welding knowledge and equipment, and new steel.

Thanks for the info. I don't even have a permit or license for a bike yet. I figured I could fix one and learn on it. Could be a fun project.

if you go a bit over 100cc, there is a huge market of affordable 125cc bikes that are extremely simple in construction, with parts readily available from the manufacturers.
