    Sorry I don’t. You will probably need to get the clamp points from a salvage yard VX.

    Ironman Hood Decals

    Hi DanMan
    I am in the process of getting them printed and die cut right now for about 8-9 people
    over on the Facebook Vehicross forum.

    I am getting extras, so when they are done I'll put up a post here on VX.info .
    They will run about $50 ish including shipping...and are made from "Racing Yacht Graphics" vinyl
    which is super durable/UV stable etc.. my friend does the graphics for round the world racing yachts etc

    Likely in the next month or so...
    Cheers
    Jo

    Cool 1st car ever; a VX!!!

    Greetings, everyone from beautiful South Carolina! I've just bought my first car, a '99 ebony black VX. I only gave it a quick drive (no plates or insurance), but I could already tell it would be a great car for me to drive. It was $4800 and has got about 113,000 on the odometer, and everything seems fine on it. There are only a few issues: the windows are falling forward when they roll up, and the ABS light is on. Luckily, both of the issues appear to be common, but could someone lead me to the best repair thread? Still getting used to this site! I'm glad to be part of this great car's community!

    PS- How do I decipher my VX's VIN? Like how do I find out when in the line mine was made?

    Vin: Last four digits is (mostly) associated with the production number. My ‘99 Ebony is 0209. Unfortunately the VX was very limited on options, the vin doesn’t really reflect any options at all. At least not that I can find.

    For the window fix, try this thread: http://www.vehicross.info/showthread...-VX-window-fix

    Oh! And Congrats! I am sure you will love it! You will also hate it, be frustrated with it, spend countless hours with it... but you will always remember your first.

    If you need anything, feel free to ask. I am located in Augusta, GA and there are other members in the SC & GA as well.

    I recommend getting the brackets to fix the window. In the meantime, so you don't damage anything internal, just pull back on the windows manually while you put them up...that will keep them in the track so you don't break anything.

    Got the tips on the windows; will be sure to get the brackets and to re-drill the mounting holes. I also did a little research on the ABS light, and it seems I get two different opinions on it. I've heard that it's just a mild annoyance, and doesn't affect the ABS's performance. I've also heard that it means the system no longer is functioning. Which one is true?

    Two more quick questions. What setting should the TOD be on when driving on the road? Just want to be sure nothing is acting up. Also, it appears someone drilled a cheap cupholder in the center console. I was able to remove it, but left some ugly holes. What would be the best way to fill those in?

    I should've probably started a new thread for this.

    It is possible for either condition to be true. The light just indicates something was detected by the computer. It could be just an intermittent error code, or the system could be completely gone. Get a good OBD2 reader that can read ABS codes.

    Normally, after you get to around 15-20 mph the first light on the TOD display will come on. When you start from a dead stop it is not uncommon for the TOD to come full on for a second or two before going back to 1 or no lights. Once you get a little speed it will illuminate at least teh first set of lights. If you punch it hard from a stop, like a drag race, then they should come on full, and the first two set of lights should stay on at least all the way through 1st gear.

    Not sure. There used to be vinyl furniture repair kits back in the 1980’s to early 1990’s. Maybe something like can fill the holes and not look too terrible.

    Proiably, but this is a low traffic site, so as far I am concerened, any traffic is a good thing.

    You can fill the holes in the console or just find another one they are pretty easy to get, if you don't find one here on the forum you can just the Facebook group and see if anyone has a used console for $20 to $50 I would not pay much more that that for one. https://www.facebook.com/groups/32929439606/

    It's easier to host them on a different site and hotlink the address.

    First of all, amazing VX! I love it!

    I do have a couple of questions though.

    1) What bumper is that? I have been looking for one but haven’t found one that will fit (maybe I have and just haven’t realized it yet). It looks an ARB maybe? Looks amazing!

    2) What is that piece near the door handle?

    Again, awesome rig!
