Back from side track.

As much as I dig the color of the interior, theses seats have seen 300,000 miles of lardass. Time for a change. I found these that were pulled out of a coup the first year after purchased from dealer and set in heated basement.


Mucho better

And then a center consul



Then door cards and carpet to match. Not sure where the pics of those are but you get the point.
Couldn't stop there thou. Unfortunately for him jwalker's wife I believe got hit in his beautiful wagon. (Luckly everyone was ok). Fortunately for me I convinced him to ship his dark gray interior trim to me.





And yes these are the c-pillar



I also have accumulated small plugs, seat belts, jdm rear seat, dash..... Well you can see where I'm going with this.

K back to the phll frankin motor.



Was my first time putting most of the motor back together, it was a shortblock with heads. Took my time not fux anything up. I cleaned every thread on every nut and bolt or ordered new from soa. Researched and torqued everything to a tee. Bought any and most tools I didn't have at the time. And finally time to drop it back in.


Hate that rusty torque converter, but I'll deal with that soon.

And success


Very pleased

Somethings not right here




Grimm 2.2 phen spacer. There for phl 2.2 not phll 222 it takes the 2.5 set. O'well.

Back together



Primed, new fuel and ready to fire

You're reminding me of that commercial where Toyota(?) rebuilds a 300k mile car.
This looks fun.

Haha, yea. It is therapeutic to me. I enjoy the research and resourcing parts from so many options. Plus it being an L that means everything need replaced anyway. Eventually.

Wow, that's a really long time to wait for the motor! Are you gonna make it a manual?
