Bought a 93 Sidekick (mall crawler) body is in great shape, yes it is a fourdoor luv camping fishing so it gives me some extra room, don't think it was ever
taken off road. Payed $1500 Can about 600 UK 314,000 Km running very strong on a rebuilt 1.6 16valve 5 speed standard new timing chains rad and
water pump. Went for a little mountain test drive and had no problems but have found many small problems from neglect over the years.

Had to replace battery hold down/clamps battery cable was burnt at starter end (not tightened ) wiper linkage worn out replaced, had to cut 3 of 4 bolts on
airfilter case rusted solid (nice k&N filter inside), had to replace 2 bolts on hood hinge one broke the other stripped (used tap and helix coil to rethread holes)
brakes started sqealing on third week so replaced pads, had to get a key cut to fit roof racks as last owner lost key lots of cleaning and painting of exposed
metal on rear tire mount skidplate ect.. Next some proper tires these all seasons look really wimpy. Hopefully I can get some off road gear on it by Christmas
and post a few pics as I go along. Befor and after shots, hope this pic shows

First off you need a certain amount of posts to post pictures up.

And secondly, you can't link from your computer. They need to be uploaded online first, a good free picture hosting site is Photobucket and once you upload your pic(s) they show you the image link you place in your new posts.

Hope that helps Smile
