Hey Guys, I am back, took a long break from TBHP. Got married on 30th April then Honey moon and Wifey shouts when i am on Car an Bike Sites. She says you dont love me , you only love your cars and bike :(
Finally back on TBHP when wifey is in office.
Few changes to the Esteem.
1) Rolled back to Type 1 Interiors and Manual Windows. used Type 3 interiors and power window system up for sale now.
2) Removed the tripple gauge pods from the dash board and that's too for sale now.
3) Changed the AC unit to 134 Gas System. Old AC unit got busted in an accident :(

Very interesting. Esteems have had issues with the windows sticking. Did converting them to Manual resolve it? I am trying hard to get around it. Now the situation is so bad, that on trying to push up the front passenger side window, the Engine Check light comes on .

Looking forward to the latest pictures of the car.

Yes Dude role back to Manual Windows for comfort, its beter to move ur hand to roll up the glasses rather pushing the glasses up and this might lead to faulty motor and the manual winders are much cheaper than the power winders. You can buy set of 4 Manual Winders in the cost of one power winder

Oh sad to hear that. It must be painful doing that. Could you post the final pics of the car in one piece?

Any mod plans for the Beat?

It is almost impossible to sell a modded car (even for the market value of a stock one), more so something like yours. Good luck on the sale (by parts). I am sure you loved the experience and will do better next time around.

Hahaha thats for sure bro, I am in two minds still , whether to keep the car or sell it!
No point selling it for peanuts. Probably a new paint job shall be given within couple of months.
