Great progress! I pulled a FWD auto, it does suck. Cooling lines are a pain and messy
Oh, I just took a pair of cutters to those ha. The lines could stand to be replaced anyways while out of the car. The clamps weren't budging. The guy who bought the whole lot helped me pull it and said it was one of the less painful auto pulls. The shifter assy gave us the most trouble.
any progress? I had to do a little work Christmas weekend to get my 265/35r18's to fit inside the wheel wells
Unfortunately no real updates. I managed to eat the dash out and was working towards finishing removal of the last couple pieces that need to go. I've contacted some shops about building the engine so waiting to hear back about that. Working with another guy to get flanges/clamps made for my turbo.
I was hoping to make more progress during my days off from work for the holidays, but ended up getting caught up doing stuff around the house.
Once my TSSFab rear subframe shows up I can swap the rear end and start working my way forward. Between work/my new house/ my new wife, progress isn't as quick as I've been hoping.
Check the lower 1/4 panels behind the bumper skin for rust - seems that the rust starts there & moves to the wheel arch on many cars.
I was looking for a 95 coupe for a little while but found a weatcoast Rs coupe on the east coast first so thay is my winter project.
Im eyeing an old school widebody (87-89) starion for sale locally - v8 Ls turbo swap
It's got the standard quarter panel rust on the rear drivers side as well as a small amount on the front passenger side. Overall it's pretty clean considering. Might just patch it and stay narrow, but also considering some form of widebody. Not sure yet, and it's not super high on the list of stuff to do. It'll all have to get paint anyways when I swap all the front end body pieces/spoiler/roof vent.
Paid $650 w/18,300 and 9 years later has shy of 90K. Pic is of one of many trips to the "Dragon" The most fun you can have and not break the speed limit going up. Actually killed the proportioning valve on the last trip.
