And here I was expecting some crazy T-type build!

Is that a silver '00+? It's not a '93. '

Is it a donor for the '88?!

It is in fact a silver 2000. Sadly it isn't for the 88 as plans have changed in the last couple of weeks. The 88 is fine though, nothing bad happened to it this was just a suprise kind of thing by my parents. I'll get some more pics and a better explanation up soon, i just couldn't wait to say something about my new ride.

I would also like to clean up the inside a bit and find my good camera before I take more pics.

And now story time!

This all started because I stopped and looked at another silver SSEi about a month ago and told my dad about it and how i would consider trading my 88 for a perfect one. I wasn't really willing to trade the 88 it was just a spur of the moment kind of thing. anyway that got my parents plotting something. then two weeks ago I got off work and came home and they sprung that they were thinking of buying me a 2000+. I was completely surprised and stumped and just didn't know what to do. they also said that we would keep the 88 (not like its worth any real money anyway) and it would go to my sister for high school then i can get it back when i finish college and get a real job. It took me 3 days of just racking my brain trying to decide if i could give up the 88 for a couple years and i finally came to the conclusion that yes i could. It has been nothing but repairs lately and I haven't been able to do anything i wanted to if for a long time so a newer car that can go some years without major maintenance was a good idea.

My parents had already done some searching and test driving of a couple SSEi's but the ones they tried so far had been beaten into the ground by stupid kids. Then we found this 2000 at a Lexus dealership in omaha, NE. It has a clean carfax with regular maintainence at a dealership. One owner that was an older guy, 146xxx miles, perfect interior and almost perfect body. Everything works that i've tried so far and it just has your regular 2000+ problems to sort out like the fuel door rust and stabilitrak not working, But i am very happy with it so far.

Not bad at all, and it looks great! That was very awesome of your parents to get that!

I was looking at a 2000 silver SSEi before I decided on my black '01.

Can't wait to see it all shined up in the daytime!!

It already did...I am getting some basic stuff from INTENSE. Some Autolight 605's, 180* t-stat, FWI, aluminum coolant elbows, and new gatorback belts as mine look a bit old. And this is just the beginning. :twisted:

I also have everything on order to do the LIM gaskets and possibly some supercharger porting. Can porting be done without disassembling the supercharger though? Or will the rotors be in the way?

The check engine light came on this morning on my way to school, It was on when i first got the car so i scanned and noticed nothing out of the ordinary, just the stabilitrak codes and 2 emissions codes i think. the scanner said they were past codes and not current so I cleared them and waited to see if it came on again.

I to advanced auto and borrowed their scanner and pulled these codes:

u1300
c1287
c1288
c1298
p0440
p0442
and one tire pressure code which i didn't record for some reason.

Can someone list off what these codes are please as i am having a hell of a time looking it up.

So I Washed her last week and took some pics with my good camera, but then that camera died and I can't find the charger to get pics off of it. So here are some Ipod pics in the daylight.

So I've learned a little bit since I got it. First it was a farm car which is good and bad. It has a lot of chips and scratches on the front bumper specifically and there is some scratching on the drivers side up by the front and some by the back fender/bumper from shrubs and the like. but the good side for this is that it seems to have stayed out of the salt for the most part. It has its couple areas but the underbody is 90% rust free, even the subframe! Second it seems to have been well taken care of mechanically, We had some carfax records that it was serviced regularly at a good dealership, regular oil changes, nothing out of the ordinary it seemed. Third It doesn't seem to have been washed or polished or anything like that too much, at least in the recent years. The paint is still good for the most part but it does have the fuel door rust happening so I think that is the next thing I will save for to get fixed before it is out of control. The interior is in really good shape it just needs a deep clean, I vacuumed the interior a couple weeks back and I still couldn't get all of the crap and crumbs out.

I have discovered a few problems with it. First the brakes are very squeaky and it is VERY annoying, no its not worn pads as they are practically new. I need to figure out what to do about that but I have no clue really so some advice would be greatly appreciated. Second I need to get the tires balanced and an alignment there is a slight shake from 70 to 75 and it pulls to the right slightly. Third I still need to do the lim gaskets I should have time this weekend so we will see what happens there, I may try to polish my spare LIM and swap that on as well. Other than that I won't really do much to it performance wise for awhile. Fourth I have that surging in OD problem. I already changed plugs and wires and it made it quite a bit better but it still creeps up from time to time. I need to replace a couple of the inner wheel well guards. Are they the same on the SE's as well? The passenger side skirt is cracked on the back right by the rear wheel well. Other wise thats all i have found wrong so far.

What would be a good way to polish my rims though? It looks like they have tiny little rust spots on them, but i'm not sure if that is the chrome failing or something on the rim?

Thats all for now, if i can find the charger for my camera I will upload some more pics in better quality but at this point at may as well be on the moon for all I know.

Brakes: Probably need to apply some "Disc Brake Quiet" to the backs of the pads, then try bedding them in.

Wheels: I found Turtle Wax Chrome Polish and Rust Remover worked really well in combination with steel wool on the tough spots, my swoopies gleamed like a mirror when I was done. First thing to do would be clean them with a good chrome wheel cleaner (I like Mother's, in a red spray bottle at any Auto Parts store, Meguiar's is good too). That will get all the loose-ish gunk off, then you can work from there down to the chrome. Don't be too agressive with the steel wool, then you'll want to polish with a microfiber when you're all done again.
