Rare Rotary Resurrection Rescue – The Story of my Mazda RX-7 FD
If you asked the Jay Lenos or Wayne Carinis of the world about barn finds, they'd likely say the era when you could find a relatively unmolested gem in someone's garage is long gone. While that may be true for a '30s era Duesenberg J, the time to find modern classics in strange places is just beginning. That's how I found this early 1993 Mazda RX-7 FD that had been sitting, untouched, for nearly …
Questions and Answers
1,will they fix all major problem, such as brake and engine
2,will they put a new tire or SOSO tire before they sell it?
3, wts dealer wont repair before selling?? Battery???????
A new/used car dealer will not keep a car that needs major repairs. He'll sell it to a wholesaler who will do the minimum work on it and resell it. A new/used car dealer will also put good tires on a trade in before he sells it. It has to pass a safety inspection and the liability of selling a car with worn tires isn't worth it.
A new/used car dealer will fix things that will affect the car from running or operating safely and correctly. Things like brake pads, wiper blades and even a broken power window. But sometimes things like interior or exterior trim pieces or a lightly stained carpet won't be since it doesn't interfere with the operation of the car.
Most used car dealers will only repair what's needed to get it to start up and drive off the lot. Then it's your problem when it breaks down. There are a few really decent used car lots that have been around for a long time. But they are few and far in between.
I have a 1994 Saturn. The roof liner fabric (looks like some sort of microfiber?) is separating from the foam on the interior roof. I have tried a regular spray on adhesive, but it didn't work. Please help. Thanks!
Adding to Gary Gearfreak's instructions:
Make sure you completely remove the old fabric liner and the any adhesive remaining on the headliner. Use a bristle brush to rub off all the old adhesive and vaccuum well. Any old adhesive will prevent a good attachment to your new layer of adhesive.
You also can try spraying the new adhesive in 2 coats – one in the long direction and second in the short direction – to get full coverage. Then lay the new fabric over the headliner from the center and roll it out towards the corners. Smooth all the wrinkles and trim the edges. Leave a 1-2 inches overhang on the front windshield side, spray adhesive on it and tuck it over to get a nice edge for the front.
Cut any openings for dome lights, etc and install the reverse of the removal.
Good luck. The improvement is like night and day.
