I'm in for both, but I have a question. My D90 came with AC but I took it out so how am I suppose to attach the passenger side?

Thanks,

The estimated prices sound fine (although cheaper would be great, too!). Let us know when you get ready to do it.

Hi Everyone,

I should have the prototypes for each year of 90 done this week, I will take some pictures of the panels and post them so you can see the progress.

Since I only have access to a 1997 With A/C I will be looking for someone (preferably in Colorado) with a 1994 - 1995 with and without AC so I can test fit the panels, for your time/effort I will give you a set at a discounted rate when they are finished.

“I would be interested in the driver side w/ac/95 but would like to see the finished product before I make a commitment to purchase“
Hi Phillip,
I do not expect anyone to commit to purchasing the item at this time, the poll is just to collect information on what everyone was driving, this way I can better plan what percentage of each Item would need to be made A/C, non A/C, 94, 95 or 97.

Once the panels are tested and complete I will post them on my site and everyone can purchase them from the online store.


Thanks,

Dave

Dave, on the 110 issue I can just test the panel you ship me in the 110 before I fit in in my 90, then share notes.

Price is right - and good on the finish. Will it bend and seat into place like the cardboard or are you planning on having us screw it in? If so we should use black trim screws that match the other dash screws...

Has anyone considered making a plate to fit in the rear wheel well to protect the rear light harnesses and cross member from slop coming off the tire? This might be another no-brainer fabrication but one that would go a long way. Anyone else think it might be useful?

I do Dave... I was just noticing the water pooling up in my rear lights today... I'll have to drill some seep holes.

I think Rover offered a kit from the stealership that had some sort of rubber gasket that protected the rear signals and such. I have seen this on a 97 before so I know its avalible. perhaps someone could elaborate. the seep holes are a good idea also

There is a rubber gasket kit that protects the rear light housings - I forget where I saw it (Rovers North or British Atlantic)...in any event is was super expensive, close to $300 as I recall.

Rovers North sells them for 145. It is a boot kit that prevents water ingress.

Mine's got the boot kit. But it also needed the weep holes. Still crappy back in there and lights are dirty inside. Kind of thing that should be replaced every 5 years or so anyway just so they look nice and chipper.

David, yes I would think that would be a good tweak. It's one of those bizarre oversights.

The rubber boot keeps water out but also keeps water in...I drilled holes 3 years ago and never had a problem. Also, I use dielectric grease in the sockets. Prior to that, I lost count of the number of times they were replaced.
