Default Question about my weekend projects...

This weekend besides weekend house crap that I finished, I also got work done onthe BAJA...

Installed the STi Intercooler... pain in the butt without my fathers shop to work out of. Also It would have been better if I had the OEM BPV hose from an STi instead of the Ebay X02 racing hose that did not fit so I adapted the OEM BAJA BPV hoses to fit with the X02 hose...

710 fluid change.... annoying random whiff of oil smell and no wet filter or drain plug / pan.. ugh hate that feeling.

Now for the QUESTION in this thread.

I installed the two heated mirrors and the switch. The passenger side works like a charm, hence forth the switch does too! However the drivers side does not. Is there a procedure to test it, maybe just replace the glass / element part? It took me forever to find a mica black pair of mirrors...

anyone???

Use a volt meter, verify you're getting voltage to the pins.

I was never impressed with these on my 02 OB. I always loved the mirrors though.

Do you have a power drivers seat? If not you can easily have one I put one in mine.

I can tell you how to do it with a junk yard seat. I did mine for hardly any money then i sold what was left. Don't do this without hearing me out...

Sadly I found a turbo online 06 manual with only 3000 miles. I was thinking about it until I remember oh yea 93 gas!!

I have the lights and mirrors done. Seat will be ordered next paycheck. I might do the lighted ignition ring, then I'll have all the turbo options :-D

btw Jeff, the computer is built. However now the real fun has been trying to get a workable front end interface. I'm toying with roadrunner right now. It's gonna take a lot of work to make it look clean.

I also might have to send the xenarc head unit back to see if they'll fix it. Lots of software bugs still, and the front pre-amp outputs have zero volume. :/

I have the schematics, I'm only buying the parts that are different, which saves quite a bit. The only trick is I don't have cowring pliers, nor any experience using them so i might have to have someone clip the cover to the seat for me.

talk to me about the lights... I know they look different but what about wiring and is there a difference in seeing with them at night?

You mean the head light swap for the 4 beam? It was caaaake, just order the 4 beam ones where ever you can find them cheapest. I then went and bought watertight automotive connectors, cut the factory, put mine on, snapped them in.. you're good to go! They're both 3 wire, you just have to map them out. Voltmeter will do. I can go find the colors if you really ask nicely.

They look great, the 4 beams look far more aggressive then the 2. I haven't cleared them yet. I still debate the safety factor of doing so as the orange is meant to shine the light back over the corner.

I also like the vision pattern more. With the 4 beams I was able to replace everything up front with the real orsama bulbs from europe, not the overpriced silverstar's. So it could be a combination of both.
