using a "how to" that i found on the search, i managed to take my rear seats out for the first time in about 10 minutes. that got my thinking why dont we have an actual how to section of the forum, where people can write their own tutorials for other forum members to use, with pics etc if possible.

what you guys think?:smoker:

I agree with you 100% :) , the FTO forum that I use to find out stuff for the wife's car has such a section and it makes research much easier. The only downside I can see is that less people would be asking questions so there would be less chatter on a daily basis, but it would lessen the amount of flaming newbies get when they ask a question that they haven't searched for or would it increase it as they would have no excuses so they could be cut down, hung drawn and quartered, chopped into tiny pieces and served up with some Fava beans and a nice Chianti. :rofl:

Did I say that out loud or was I just thinking it :D

i agree, a "how to" section is muchly needed, im new to the Skyline lark(and there's a lot of larking, and grinning), and i really am having trouble finding things and how to go about fixing/changing/upgrading things.....

There are certain benefits of joining the owners club. One of which being a good how to section. If you want the how to section among other benefits including insurance discounts etc... then join the club, its only £25 for the first year and then £15 renewal fee each year after that.

Well worth it I say!

how to section would be great, on my old crx uk website we had this and the amount of fully detailed explanations in simple english that was written, made even people like myself with very limited mechanical and electrical knowledge become confident enough to tackle a job on their own.

also, my insurance gives me discount as i am a forum member, the advisor said it does not matter whether you pay or not, or if you are an internet member or go to club meets.

please correct me if im wrong but aint this a skyline owners club even if it is on the internet

How too

A how too section would be a great idea. I know they have one on the owners club but you also have to considder others. Ie some people will not join the club for £25 because of a few simple reasons. They may not have the time to attend some of or indeed any of the meets, commitee meetings etc etc and would see £25 ill spent for there sircomstances. A discount on insurance would be the only benifit they would see form there hard earnt cash.
Giving people the chance to ask and get answers on a HOW TOO right here is in my opinion a great idea as this site is often the first and last place they can get hands on advice from others with the only cost bieng there time to type a question and to wait for an answer. After all we all started somewhere and this site is as good as any for those all important snips of valued comments and in most cases pictoral guidance to the problem in hand.
It would be of no real effort for us to have a HOW TOO section incorperated into this site and would make for a stronger comunity within.
Also adding to this point, is not the point of this forum to help those who have only just begun in the world of Skyline ownership or those whom wish to but need the first steps of help to understand what these cars are all about. This such information cost none of us anything to post and should be availiable to those who need it the most.

So enough of my opinion, we all know how i feel about a HOW TOO so what about the rest of you, dont let a good opertunity pass for those who would benefit from it. :cheers:

My brothers Pulsar forum has a " How To " section..

Helped us change the front mount.. Oil catch tank. Fit an oil cooler and quiet a few bits and bobs.

If not for the How To someone else would of been drinking a pint with hes money..

It is indeed a good idea.. And i think alot of people will take it as a hobbie to contribute towards it.. If i ever under go a job i sure wouldnt mind taking a few pictures and taking ten minutes to explain to fellow skyline owners how to do it like i did..

Such things like " How To " change your spare tyre.. Open your car door, Fill up petrol..

U know.. all the things that we have trouble doing..

I really like the idea of having a 'how-to' section, and getting all the related 'useful threads' in one place too.:)

Ive actually started a R34 GTT RB25DET wiring guide for anyone wanting to swap to one of these engines, and hopefully this will help answer a lot of people's questions too.

Whether it deserves to be 'stickied' or not, I dont know, but im gonna complete it anyway, and people can make up their minds after.

Hope this idea happens actually, as it will obviously cut down the number of re-posts etc.:)

We Want how to section!:cya:

i also wouldnt mind taking a few pics and a write up on how to do a job, although if anyone went on my theory they probably would end up with a car that dont move as i cant really say i know my stuff

WHICH IS WHY I, YES ME, NEEEEEEEDS THE HOW TO SECTION:cya:
OR IM GOING TO HAVE TO PAY SOMEONE TO DO EVEN THE MOST SIMPLE JOBS. LIKE HOW THE f**K DO I INSTALL GAUGES IN MY CAR.
I MEAN I DONT KNOW IF ITS A SIMPLE 1HR JOB OR IF ITS GONNA TAKE A WHOLE DAYS GRAFT!:attention:

I WANT HOW TO SECTION!!!:mad: :cya: :disappointed: :spank:

A discount on insurance is not the only benefit of joining the club, you also get a hell of a lot of useful info like How To!! I have saved far more than the £25 by paying up & using the club site. I'm not rich by a long way but it has been very beneficial to me to join. sometimes you have to be willing to contribute a little...:grinno:
