    Yikes!! Well, I can tell you that you can get complete LCA's for about $230 (or slightl less based on exchange rate) shipped to your door in less than a week from ordering them from SAPMOTORPARTS from the UK. I've posted a few threads already with all the details. If your UCA's are in need of replacing, then you might as well order them at the same time.

    For your AC, get the UV dye test done. If you've got a P11, then from my AC issues, I had leaks in all three hoses. I first replaced the one with the rubber hose. Leaking from the crimps. I bought a new one from everythingg20. The other two hard lines have pinhole leaks, that my mechanic was able to use stop leak on but he did say it was a temp fix, which was true. The location of the pinhole leaks were (a) underneath a clamp holding the line in place that runs along the lower rad support. Which makes sense, water trapped between the steel clamp and the white metal line would setup a galvanic corrosion between the two. I scored a replacement line from a partout car. The other location was on the line running underneath the battery tray. Again, pinhole leaks. I happened because of acid corrosion from crud forming on my battery terminal and when I would clean it off, I wouldn't think anything of it to allow the rinse water dripping down. The shop I took my car to Diagnose the issue, installed the first leaking line charged me $120 inc. r134. Once I swap out the other two lines myself, it'll probably be another $40 to recharge the system. My suggestion, you might as well get yourself a new drier/accumulator as well. Rockauto or even eBay has them for under $10.

    Power Steering hose, my leak was the Pump, not the hose, but I replaced my hose first. Again, quite a few threads on how to do this. I may just sell off my original hose.

    Distributor leak. I just noticed this on my car. A $5 (only $3 in the US) O-ring & 5 minutes, and it's done.

    Motor mounts, again, a DIY project. You can DIY solid prothane mounts for the two crossmember for around $60. For the passenger & drivers side mounts, get OEM. For OEM parts, check out infinitiesc's thread.

    If you've got a local independent shop you trust, I'm sure you can have them bleed the brakes with new fluid for $60. Maybe more if you go with a better fluid.

    Wow, it's almost 5am! I'm going to bed! Lol


    BTW, with all the $$ you save from the tips I've given you, along with the uber cool HowTo's from other members, You'll be able to sponsor up for the next five years without batting an eye! lol

    Finished this last night. Had an extra dual with broken tabs laying around and figured id give it a shot. Loving how it came out. Now its time to order my duals for the AR2 and finish them up. Ill get some more pics later and ill possible start a write up. These are Morimoto minis i bought off a member on here.







    Trial on the JW0. You can see how much the dr side glares compared to the projector on the pass side.


    Nice cutoff

    Yea i like em. Is still got a few more thing to do to them to install them in my other set of duals. I was gonna do the dual projectors but that i think is just a waste of money.

    Replaced spark plugs, changed the Injen air filter on the Injen CAI for a Blox velocity stack with K&N big filter. Makes a noticeable difference. Sold a Koyo rad.
