First How-To Document

I was curious as to what some of you guys thought. I put this together for some of my car club buddies in an effort to make an engine swap for a Toyota Spyder a little less mysterious.

First time I've ever done something like this. Just looking for some comments or ideas for future write-ups like this.

edit - btw, if I'm in the wrong forum please move this thread - thanks!

hehe. Not yet, but that 2zz is being cleared out to make room for a GM 3100. Which, upon confirmation that it is a workable solution, will be swapped for a worked up 3400 or get some forced induction added. None of the four cylinders that Toyota makes come with any torque. I'm looking to correct that to some degree.

I think simple is sometimes the best. Therefore, I like it.

With that said, I think you could add a few features to make it more presentable.

1. Maybe a table of contents with bookmarks to jump to specific parts.

2. Or a break it up with different sections and use a menu.

3. Try using thumbnails for the pictures.

4. I also like to center things on the screen.

JMO on a few ideas, but I think you did a great job documenting the procedure(s); and after all, that is the main purpose.

But you need to change the title from "Have you hugged a Jeff Dickey today?" to "Removing a 2zz Engine from a Spyder" (lol).

Click here to see the documentation of swapping a TPI into a 94' Suburban. I use FrontPage 2003 and it is a no brainer. If you can type on Word, you can build professional looking webpages with FrontPage. You can get FP 2003 for about $100 now.

BTW - Is is Chapin, SC?

hehe, I didn't embarass myself this run through. However I would forget about some of the details and come back to them. Part of why I made a point to mention them like I did.


edge -

To afford my garage and the habits it brings on, I am a web geek that helps sling code for credit unions in regards to their web sites and online banking applications. That said, Front Page is the devil (grin). Notepad is my tool of choice and on sites where I have to make things look nice, I do. I decided to keep my personal site as utilitarian as possible and the pages are laid out like they are simply because its easier to print that way. It started out as a joke amongst friends several years ago and then when I started hosting real content it just kind of stuck. Site probably needs a face lift though so you may see the indexing, real navigation and ease of use along with Printer Friendly buttons in the future.

You are correct - Chapin, SC.


Many thanks guys!


edit - Edge that is a very nice looking write up. I like it a lot better for reading online than what I have.
