capacitor rework today on a 92 manual ECU. Upon visible inspection, most of the caps were not leaking and only 2 or 3 had leaked. No lost traces on the PCB so that's always good. 225,000 miles

I'm going to wash it today. I let it sit outside overnight and it turned grey from all of pollen around my area.

I've got a 2001 GS430 but there's this lovely SC400 a few blocks from my house. It's been there for a long time. Everyone scared of V8 gas prices... Maybe? But to me this is a gem waiting to be polished up. If nobody buys it by late June, this will be my summer toy. Would love to get into the SC community. Here's pics of it. What do you guys think?

Looks fairly clean. The tail lights have been replaced; looks like the infamous "ebay" versions. Not sure if that was a cosmetic decision or a cheap fix after being rear ended. The side blinkers are updates as well being clear and not the stock amber color.

Mileage and maintenance history will be key unless you plan to do a top to bottom rebuild.

Appears to be a 92-95 model so you should be able to acquire it for less than $5K.

Keep us posted if you get your hands on it......

Hi, guys! I have repainted the car, covered the car with a paint protection and got magnetic protection straps for the sides from http://dentgoalie.com. Now my car is protected from the environment and all those dumb drivers at parking lots Has anybody here used such a thing before?

Default New shoes

My 1998 SC300 has been undergoing constant renewal since I bought it a little over a year ago. This week it was time for some new shoes for my baby. Newly outfitted with Pirelli P7s all round it rolls down the road like a dream.

While I have only driven a few miles since installation, and only in town, the new mpg is blowing me away! Old tires were 215/60/16 and new are 225/55/16. I was expecting a slight decrease in gas mileage - but not so, it now is getting 24.5mpg around town. That's up 3 mpg! Can't wait to take it on the interstate and see if it will break 30mpg.
