#1517707 210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

Posted by colourbox on 16 September 2017 - 03:29 PM

Took out the back seat to replace the backing board that was falling apart. Found a dime and a random tiny screwdriver in there.

Got 1/8" masonite back there. Looks good inside and out.

This was kind of a quickie job since JCCS is next weekend. I'll have to revisit this and put some kind of foam or rubber to cushion it a bit. Doesn't rattle when driving but since my speakers are back there the music makes it rattle a little.

#1509814 How to make a ghetto a/c AKA Ghetto Breeze 600

Stanley has been in the family longer :) And the husband realizes I love Stanley more and he's ok with it. At least he says so... :confused:

 

We've been busy these last few weekends so haven't been able to see about modifying the Ghetto Breeze to something better. We got 6 weeks til showtime so hopefully we can get on it soon.

Caught this on the freeway but could never get close enough to see what it was.

He does deserve a medal. Pretty sure he wants to leave me now but at least I might get Stanley some a/c :)

Ok ya'll went junkyard diving this weekend as a couple of 210s popped up. First one I went to had a/c in it. Hey now! Spent a few hours pulling all the a/c elements. My husband helped man handle the parts out of there. Pretty sure he wants a divorce now. But I got a/c....sort of. I'll take everything to my mechanic after JCCS as I suspect it will take quite a bit of time to see if I've got everything and it all works. I'm thinking something will need to be rebuilt, remanufactured or something. This is exciting though.

#1508295 Wrecking Yard Report

Posted by colourbox on 05 August 2017 - 06:39 PM

1980 210 hatchback in Santa Fe Springs LKQ. I took the a/c parts and the antenna. It's pretty haggard otherwise but some decent body parts. There is apparently a 210 hatchback in Wilmington LKQ but I didn't bother going there today. Spent a few hours pulling the a/c unit out of this one.

Very cool. My husband has something in mind to maximize airflow. We'll have to work on it and see. I had the Ghetto Breeze 600 in the passenger seat with me and it's much better when it's blowing on you that's for sure. Need to work something out so we get the same with it in the back seat.

Hey Angela how did the deluxe work for you?

Mike, I do have those window screens to help block out the fireball that is the sun. My next project needs to be fixing the board backing the back seat. It's beginning to crumble. Then I would like to sound proof the car and if doing that it seals up and keeps the heat out all the better. I do want to get to Canby. It'll be great to meet finally meet you and all the other guys and gals. And maybe I'll have the cooling situation handled.
