    Brake Job

    Is there a how to do a "brake job". I am mainly interested if there are any special tools required to remove the calipers and rotors, or do the just slip off after you remove the calipers. I'd like to do this on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon because it's my only car right now.

    Also any other little tidbits of advice while doing the D's brakes would be nice too.

    how-to recover seats?

    On the .com site, there was a series of page scans from "Gullwing" magazine, showing a very comprehensive how-to on reskinning the seats. The photos were great, and the write up gave a lot of helpful hints and tips (zip ties, who knew?) They had been posted by user "DeCobra". Unfortunately I did not have them saved to any of my computers before the site went down, and a search of archive.org got me to the thread, but not the scans. Does anyone have them, or is "DeCobra" out there and willing to repost them?

    Rebuilding brake calipers?

    I'm getting ready to rebuild my brake calipers (front and rear). It seems pretty straightforward, but there must be tips, tricks and warnings...

    Also, what is the minimum thickness for front and rear rotors?

    Advice appreciated.

    The minimum thickness requirement is stamped onto the discs, so when you take it to the shop to have them turned you don't have to worry about looking up the D in the shop computer.

    Interior Door Handle Removal

    My driver's side interior door/grab handle is loose. I'm just wondering how exactly it is attached so I can get in there and see what the problem is. I'd just like recommended tools, configuration, that kinda thing. Pictures would be great if possible. Thanks guys!
