This vehicle will be my project wagon once shes paid off. Look for updates starting next summer. (Edit..she's paid for in full, but now I have the 22b kit to fund. This car is on the back burner for a while.)
Update: I found a 2000 L that was totaled up past Detroit. The car already had the swap done. I really didn't want to buy it but couldn't pass up the price I bought it for. After selling off most of the parts I've recouped more than I thought I would. I still have a few more items to sell. So now the wagon is back to priority and the rs is yet again looking like a winter time project.
July 3- Make the trip up past Detroit, four hour drive. Get to the guys house, rip off the rear bumper, front grill, tape the hood down with duct tape and screw on a license plate to the trunk. Start up the car and drive a totaled car back home.....stupid...I know.
July 4- Strip out the interior and exterior
July 5- Some friends (Mike, Mike and Dave) come over and pull the motor, transmission, engine harness, diffs, struts and whatevers left.
July 11, pull the cross member and reinstall the rear cross member
July 12- ghetto time! The car goes off to the scrapper, via an engine hoist and a tiny trailer. 180.00 dollars back for the shell! Big thanks to my buddy Meaty. 3 hours in the rain to get the shell on the trailer and to the scrap yard.
July 15- Pull the wagon in, organize the garage (only to unorganized it the same day). Pull the dash, Heater core, and start after wiring. Keep in mind this is two harnesses in the car. I would do a little at a time, paranoid that I would forget how the wire was run.
July 16-Started putting the interior back together.
I probably jumped the gun on putting the interior back together, but we know the wiring is good (crosses fingers) because it came out of a already working swapped car. I put the 1995 World Rally Championship seats in too, just no pictures yet.
July 18 out to the fender with the wiring, most of the dash is in
July 22 Old motor out, pedal box in (should of put that in before the wiring).

July 25, new motor and trans go in, thanks to my buddy Todd James
July 26, Wagon Mike and Giant Jay came and helped. I got the drivetrain in, axles, drive shaft, suspension on with Jays help. Mike handled the engine compartment.
July 28, the wagon is up and running. Pulls real good. Im betting I hit my goal of 13.2 without an other modifications first time out. If not it will be real close.
Frank is not amused.
July 31, hooked up the gauges and got my steering wheel on straight.
August 1, Alignment, air conditioner recharged and an oil change
August 3, Exactly one month later we're going autoxing!
Sold the wagon on October 31, Halloween to a friend. I did manage to take it down the drag strip before I sold her. The wagoon ran a 13.43 at 103mph.
