I had my car mybe a month or 2. I would love to make it look better. Inside and out. The lady who had it took good care of it for the Inside. Some Rust due to Ocean Salt. So there some Rust. And below the Front Bumper skirt is missing part of it. I guess hitting something. Blown motor that been replaced.

California people who dont know how to drive in the Mountains. Going up hill Cars with there ac on and overheating. The lady blown her motor. Can we say stupid lol. Then over heating. Or going down hill burning brakes due to the fact they dont down shift even in a automatic. I see this with 18 wheelers and brake on fire. Yes I am From california. But I live in the Mountains I know how to drive in the snow and deal with mountain dangers. I look at the news and I see stupid accidents due to stupid people.

The whole car cost 3k. Parts only. But had Motor and Brake and a part for the AC heater replaced for the blower. The Tow Truck driver seid the owner must of been doing 100mph up the mountain and blown a lower oil line. All I payed was for the Repairs to the car to buy it Nothing more.

The car is like a Dark dark Green. Untel you see it in the right light it Green but otherwise black.

Questions

What good for the cleaning the Leather inside and the basic Fabric.

Repair the Rust due to ocean sait. there only like 3 spots.

The front Display look New. Sid 3. The radio tape sound good . Then CD player in the back that skip when you hit a bump that bites. I need to look for a after mark Cdplayer that has a 1mb or 2mb cache so that dont happen. Or a Mp3 player Plug in.

Or a way to setup my 320 gb Laptop or 120gb Mp3 player to work on this car. If you go laptops are only 120gb. Think again. They are 320gb if you buy the right laptop.

I had cdplayers that have anti skip 2mb Cache while I was working. I wouuld have to do something crazy to have it skip.

Cache is Memory that save Music a 15 to 30 sec so your stero don't skip. So if it skips The eletronics have time to get back to where it was playing with out sounding like crap.

I hope someone can help.

There is a way to tap your current head unit so there is an auxiliary line-in instead of a tape player. You can plug your MP3 player in this way. But search for it or wait for somebody else because I have a lab practical comin up and need to figure out what the **** I'm doing!!! (aka shouldn't be on the Saab forums!) check out the "Tech.Help" tab at the top though, I know there's a link in there somewhere.

Hey Atol,

For the bodywork, I can help you but will need some pics of the rust and how best to treat it and how to do the paint as well.

Regarding the AUX plug for the radio to hookup an IPOD read my thread :cheesy:
http://www.93forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=37

There's a new cable out from Clarion apparantly but haven't resaearched it yet to see if it plugs directly to our cars. It's under $70 and it hooks up the IPOD directly to the stock deck without any mod :eek:

I'm not sure it works with our decks though
