  1. First time Sc400 owner, tips are very appreciated

    Yes, the power steering unit will drip into the alternator and kill it. It happened to me. I have had to replace the power steering unit twice now. It is a known issue with this model and when it starts leaking it will take the alternator with it. Watch the power steering unit for any leaking. If you can catch it before much drips into the alternator you could save it.
  2. 1997 SC400 I had a lot of chips in front from highway driving and used Plasti-Dip to spray on what looks like a protective black bra. I thought it turned out very nice. At 6 bucks a can and only two cans used, this was way cheaper than trying to match the green body paint and looks better too. And if it didn't turn out, you can just peel off the Plasti-Dip. Fun stuff. The bra turned out so well that I then did the wheels with green. Been driving with the bra for almost a year and it is doing great to protect from gravel chips from highway driving. The electric windows just quit working. Moon roof is working fine. Not sure what to do from here. Any words of wisdom?
