few newbie ?'s

Just a few quick ones: where do your temp. gauge read when your tooling around: does it move or stay at the same temp?

Where can I buy outside window molding? I've tried ebay with no avail yet. can you guys read your clock when your headlights are on? I can't.
Lastly (for now) myh headlights are real dim. I haven't got a clue to go about this( haven't sone to much ivestigating though) on 944online they offer some part, I believe it's some sort of reflective mirror? I can't see my temp gauge at night or my battery gauge. any ideas guys?

on another note, sorry if these questions have been answered already, this board moves amazingly fast compared to other boards I've been on. Are there any FAQs around..or am I blind an there already here somewhere.

thanks for all the helps folks.
brian

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

Welcome.

If you can't find it here on Pelican, try tweeks or aid america for the seals.

Your clock light should come on at night - many times the lightbulb behind the clock is burned out or the connection has gone bad over time - a new bulb or soldering the connection will fix

Dim headlights are a problem with the cars - H4 is a good start, clean up all of your headlight wiring. There are a few aftermarket kits available to upgrade your lights to newer systems

I hear pelicanparts.com can help you with some of those parts too! :P

For the headlights I would recommend new lenses (H4), higher wattage bulbs, and upgraded wiring to get them power straight from the battery with relays that are controlled by the stock wiring. If that's above your head, just a set of H4s would be a good stopping point. Don't go crazy on the wattage of the bulbs w/out upgrading the wiring, or they'll make short work of your headlight switch.

whoops, should of explained my self a lil better. I meant my gauges lights; speedometer, fuel gauge, tach, batt, etc, those lights are real dim. How do you try to get these brighter? One of the first things I did was put some bosch h4's on her. I was actually asking if your clock lights up at night. I'll try to change that litebulb behind her and see if I can tell the time at night. Thanks for the recomandations.
