  1. Goce/srdt, thank you both. I will look into both of these solutions soon... On a different note, does anyone have an extra valve cover that they would be willing to sell? I'd like to buy a used one, and then have it stripped and powder coated so that I can swap on and off without being down with the car in the meantime...
  2. Gentlemen, happy new year. We had a decent snowstorm on christmas, but quiet and dry weather otherwise since, so took the Peugeot out today for a ride. Car ran great, but had an interesting thing happen. After about 20 minutes of driving, the oil temp. gauge (which has been well chronicled in this thread with me thinking that it was maybe reading a tad high), started DROPPING out of nowhere to near the bottom of the gauge as I drove along. When it happened, I pulled off, shut the car off, and then restarted, everything went back to normal. Signs of an oil temp. sensor/switch on it's way o
  3. Hi Goce, I didn't really get on the car too hard, so tough to say, all I know is that the CEL seems to be a long gone issue put to pasture (well until the next issue, ha), and the car runs and drives as I imagine it once did back in the early 90's... Very pleased, it was definitely worth all the reading/research/work to get to this point...
  4. Yesterday was a brisk but dry day, so I took the Peugeot out for about an hour, ran excellent, looking forward to many more drives like this throughout the cold season, so long as the snow and salt stay away…
  5. Ha, thanks guys. Bean, doing the peel paint may not age well (or even look good, for that matter), I agree, but for $20 in paint, it is worth a try, no? Souvenier, I already got a quote of around $200, so that will likely happen at the earliest, in the spring, if the peel paint doesn't look good or hold up. This is just an easy winter project to make it look better...
  6. Hey guys, I picked up a couple cans of white plasti-dip type paint, think I'm going to give myself a little winter project and try to paint the hood of my car in my garage. Best case, it is a better color match and will be passable for a while, worst case I just peel it off and continue to look at my crème colored hood with my otherwise original white paint. Stay tuned...
  7. Things are starting to wind down this time of year, basically just getting ready for winter. I've washed/detailed/winterized all the cars and put them away, with the exception of the Mi16 and S2000, as I hope to drive them throughout the year as long as there is no snow/salt on the ground. Took some photos tonight of the Mi16 in downtown Buffalo, and got a few shots in front of a french café down there as well. Car continues to run well...
  8. Hi Mike, I should've clarified in my last post, however the subject was also covered very early in my thread, the front shocks are still original Peugeot. I expressed much surprise that after 170,000 miles the original shocks could still be good, but they have great rebound and they are not leaking, so I stuck with your guys suggestion, and I am glad I did so...
  9. Took the Mi16 out for about a couple hours this evening, still running great. One thing I think I might want to do is the front LCA bushings. They are the only thing I did not replace when I redid my front end this year (for no particular reason other than looking like they might be annoying to do). While the handling is great, it takes the bumps more harshly than I would think it should. Maybe that's just the way they are. Regardless, extremely pleased with where the car is at. As we roll into the cold season, I intend to drive it as often as possible throughout, so long as the roads are clea
  10. Good deal. I'd also read through my entire thread, you might find some good value in the logic steps we went through to get my car right, as I'm sure your car will have many of the same issues mine had from sitting... Also, the guys on this forum are incredibly knowledgeable, they will help you get there for sure...
  11. Thank you, Jayden. I just started following your thread as well, you will get there, just stick to it. Injectors were a big culprit of my running issues after my car sat for a bit, I suggest you pull them out and have a really good look at them, you can have them ultrasonically cleaned for probably about $20 each...
  12. This morning was the last cars and coffee of the season, my friend Jack (and the guy I bought my car from) came out with his '92 Mi16. We were amongst the rarest of the cars there...took these as the event was wrapping up, was actually a good turnout...
  13. Took the car out again last night, it continues to run/drive great, hard to believe that now when I drive it I don't even (gulp) think about the CEL coming on anymore??? I know, famous last words...
  14. I agree, I don't think blending will be necessary, but I will leave that to my paint guy to determine…
  15. Goce, that looks amazing, beautiful color too. I'm not sure if he'll be blending into the fenders, he didn't mention it, but he's a great painter, so I'm not too worried about it. Will update when I know better though...
