  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. I agree, I don't think blending will be necessary, but I will leave that to my paint guy to determine…
  6. 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...
  7. The paint is what I would call good and original, very nice patina. Good enough to leave, as if I start painting too many parts, then deciding where to stop can get tricky. I actually very much like the current state of the paint, and am only painting the hood because it is the only part of the car that has been repainted already. I also don't want it to be too nice, where I have to constantly worry about nicks and chips - I've made that mistake before with my black MR2. The paint on that car is almost too nice for what I want to do with my cars these days, which is drive them first, then take
  8. Looking to have the hood painted in about 2 weeks, excited...
  9. Thanks guys, we will see how a few more applications make it, but I'm pleased with it so far... It's weird, I'm running out of jobs to do on the car, ha... I did however speak to my paint guy today, going to have him repaint the hood soon to match the rest of the paint, which is all original, so at least the car will be one color again...
  10. I think it is more of a color fill, but will read the tub again when in front of it. I'm sure it has some other positive effects too. Leather feels about the same...
  11. Little interior project, involving some leather furniture balm... My 30 year old leather, while still nicely intact, has suffered from some prior ownership bolster wear on the driver's seat. When I went to visit the previous owner, he gave me some old leather balm from when he had owned the vehicle. Decided to give it a try yesterday. While the seats will never look new again, the results are great for how easy it was. Going to give it a few more applications and see where it ends up...
  12. Some shots from yesterday evening...
  13. Yeah, it was fun, took him for a ride, he seemed impressed. And good point on seeing 3 405's in one place, certainly not common anymore these days…
  14. Well, had my first real shakedown run with the car today, a ~250 mile round trip to visit the gentleman that sold me the car several years ago. I think he was pleased to see his old car in it's current shape (he still has a '92 Mi16 and a '90 Sportwagon). The car performed flawlessly and rolled over 175K miles on the journey, very fitting...
  15. My first experience in a Peugeot was when I was in high school, probably around the year 2000. A friend of mine in my shop class knew someone who had a 505, I think it was a turbo, but all I remember was that it was the middle of winter, and he took us around for a ride, thrashing the hell out of it. It seemed really fast, however he was really wringing it out. I was a Peugeot fan long before this, but this really made me like them a lot. As a serial car nut, I'm certain I'd pick one up if it happened to fall into my lap...
