Hey, I'm from norcal and I've had a S13 ('91) for about a year and a half now. It's in amazing condition. The only thing that doesn't work is the a/c which I'm going to fix before this summer. I'm new to this forum because I didn't think I was going to be keeping the car for this long, but I am, and I will keep it for even longer. Since driving this car, there's no other car like it. Yes, I'm a girl, but I'm interested in making my car the best it can possibly be, and I'm a fast learner, so we'll see how much I get out of this. Hahah. Anyway! Just saying hi and a short intro!
A while ago my car got hit at a 4-way stop cause a guy didn't stop and it damaged the driver's side rear body and totaled my car. I bought it back because there was no mechanical damage and the only thing that I needed to fix was the body, the alignment, and it dented my exhaust.
I don't have a full picture of my car, but you can see some of it?
Here's a closer picture of the damage:
He hit my rims too and now they have scratches. boo.
Anyways, I wanted to first find a place that I can take this car to to get it's body fixed. Unfortunately, it's really expensive so I want to find a place a little cheaper cause I find it almost not worth it at this moment to fix it up unless it's for a good price. The damage doesn't bother me too much yet, but I'm sure it will soon enough...
I also wanted to learn more information about the A/C system because there's something mysteriously wrong with my A/C because recharging it doesn't work and it doesn't respond to anything on tests? It blows out air, but recharging doesn't work so I don't get it. So, I want to replace the whole system since it uses R12 freons and people no longer use it. Anyway, I want to find somewhere that will do it and won't overcharge me for it. So if anyone knows somewhere reliable, please let me know. Thanks!
