Got my EL a few days ago, cleaned up the inside of the engine and replaced gaskets... cleaned up the radiators etc.. Bought it for 45k, now it's going to 70k and will be road testing it by tonight, still without A/C and stereo...
Brakes and clutch are all done, pads changed to new... got one more ^^ one hole in the exhaust pipe.. whew!
Before the end of 2010, it should be a gift to me... I really need a manual too of the babyEL. I want to restore it as well... please e mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
Mine is a 4g13 EL. All stock. It was my mom's car, but eventually she got tired of driving, and left the car in our garage. I was too young to drive it, so it waited 2 years before the keys were handed over. Now I've been using it for ten years, I haven't changed anything on the engine. Minor electrical works and a new set of tires.. It's all stock, sa tagalog eh LUMA, inside and out. But it still runs quite good.
I can't help but smile when I read the comments about the steering shaking, air cons shutting down, clutch giving up. Mine is an old one. Planning to get it repainted and replacing some of the parts. (i.e. front and rear suspension, cables etc.)
I read someone said something about a club for Lancer Singkit models, I think it's a great idea. I'll be making a Facebook account for this purpose. Just search it "Lancer Singkits".
Merry Christmas fellow EL'ers.
I got my EL way back 2003. She's like my daughter. I like her, even though some say to sell her, but still I have her. My EL is a very fuel efficient, and for serving the family on the road, it never had a problem. I like my EL so much; it's my first car, and she will be my car until I grow old.
To all EL owners, just take good care of your EL and they will do the rest... Hope there will be a group that will represent all EL lovers!!!
I want to do some minor modification with my Singkit. I want to replace my dashboard. Can you guys help me find a replacement for it? What other dashboard is compatible with this unit?
Can a dashboard of newer Lancer 93-97 fit nicely inside the Lancer Singkit? I have one and the dashboard needs replacement. Thank you.
