Stock Garage FAQ

Postby downest » Fri Mar 09, 2007 7:27 am

There are a lot of stickies in all the forums, and I find it kind of annoying to have them all at the top. There are also a lot of good write ups that don't necessarily belong in the How-To section.

So let's get a FAQ going, I'll start with the current stickied stuff. Please DON'T post comments or whatever, just a link and a description. I'd like to keep as much as possible on the site here, so if you see a good write up somewhere else, ask the author if they mind if you copy it here, or better yet invite them over here and ask them to post it! Remember this is for stock mods only, I've got one going in the Mod Garage as well.

An asterisk* indicates an external link, please include that with yours as well.

pretty please :o

You know I'd actually be willing to try something like that myself.
RPR is a good site, but it is hard to get into. The are more inclusive and there is a line to get in :P

This site is a little more open to tech. But doesn't have much in the ways of the first gen. Maybe I could try posting some things I notice with my first gen? With pics? Any fixes I find? Who knows.
I'll give it a try for the sake of all the first gen'ers out there.
I got a horribly torn up '85 HF stock. Covered in rice and black spray paint.

What happened to the "1st gen FAQ" link (4th from top of list). Clicking on that leads to an error message saying "You are not authorized to read this forum." It used to work, many weeks back.......
