Put new wires on the Black SE-R since I stole the blue wires off of it and put them on the silver SE-R

And here's after:

These particular shots really show the color change (it's not as prominent on the tach I suppose because there are less indicator marks than the speedometer):

Here's what they are; since there are 3 main bulbs that light up the cluster, if you want to achieve that color fade like I did, simply get 2 bulbs of your color choice, 1 on the left and 1 on the right and 1 super bright one directly in the middle. In my case I used 2 blue bulbs on the left/right and 1 Sylvania 194 superbright in the center. It looks so much better now. One thing though if you use too much of one color and not a white in the center you may lose the redline a bit in the 91-92's clusters.

Pick & Pull. There were 4 B13s and I got the front strut & springs together, dashboard, the window crank that holds the glass in the door off one car. Didn't buy new springs. I have 2 sets of lowering springs but no stocks.

If you bought them opposed to already having them on-hand, where did you source your OEM springs? I refreshed my car's suspension with OEM-spec struts, but with the same rusty old springs. I'd love to get some new ones!

-----------------

Yay! Another solid polyurethane motor mount installed - one more "difficult" one (need to drop the crossmember) and one easy one and the car will be ready for a lot more abuse. These mounts are much better than the notoriously weak stock mounts, completely eliminating engine / transaxle movement and wheel-hop, and helping prevent transaxle damage. A lot of effort, but worth it!

Quick question, does anyone know if a B14 SE-R rear trunk spoiler will fit on a B13 trunk? I have both but don't feel like measuring in the snow Since my B13 has no spoiler may try it out.

I discovered that the bolt on my alternator worked its way out, and was causing that high pitch squealing noise on start up. I figured while I was at it, might as well change the motor mount too.
