    New Here.

    Well, guess I will introduce myself.

    I'm new to the forums, and I currently have a DB1 Sedan.

    It's been like that for its life right now, I haven't taken the time to repaint, it has some little negligent problems on the body, and the car is suffering (like most of its generation) from the cooling fan problem, and the Alternator's shot. But other than that, it's not a bad car.

              i meant condition wise i'm pretty sure yours is in better shape. why has it been sitting?

                The alternator/fan issue. Presumably the sensor went bad and caused the fan to continuously run till the battery dies, which then caused the alternator to work more harder to charge the battery, and yeah.

                I'm thinking of getting it this...



                Is that ok or rice?

                  Rice x100 on the headlights. Now the bumper lights ill go with. Just save up the money you were going to spend on those headlights and use it to get some authentic JDM 1pcs.

                      Yea ebay 1pcs. I meant actuall jdm 1pcs. They say there jdm 1pcs but there not. Look at some threads here and youll se whats the diffrence between actuall JDM 1pcs and Ebays version of JDM 1pcs.

                      Heres a link of some REAL JDM 1PCS that someone is selling here hope this helps:

                        You mean like that? It looks allright, but it just has that little reminiscence of the USDM ones.

                        Also, that car was long sold, AFAIK.

                            It's cool. Just helps to identify the actual JDM pieces, since I may think of converting the car to JDM specs instead.. Before getting the body checked at a local body shop.

                                Sweet, a Washingtonian. B)

                                Getting the body fixed, then the temp sensor because of the fan/alternator, new stock seats (Driver's has a huge rip), Stereo, Reemz, and you know JuRican's ride? Like that. Well, not being a 2-door.

                                        the ect switch is on the back of the block for obd0 engines which the OP seems to have. otherwise on obd1 engines its on the thermostat housing.

                                            Welcome see ya around town when you get rollin. I see your parked on South Tacoma Way be careful parking on that road.

                                            Yes Steve I second the meet idea.

                                              yeah, sorry to bring this back up, but don't get the ebay ones, you can actually just the real 1 pieces and open them up and paint the housing black, i've seen it dont and looks 100x's better. if you look for a diy you'll probably find one

                                                Welcome, i know the headlights aren't authentic jdm lights but i love them. They kinda remind me of the dc itr headlights. To each their own though. The only thing I have jdm on my car are the badges. Can't wait to see the progress of this car though.
