Glad to see ya back!
Thanks man! I can't wait to start working on this one. Got a lot to clean up. :/
Parts starting to come in!
Also as I was looking at ditching the ABS stuff I noticed I have rear disc brakes! 95 L wagon with factory rear disc? I didn't think that existed..
Also a bonus score! Diff brace!
(Could be wrong but I think 95 was the only year with stock rear disk.) *Was wrong* edited.
Couple big bonuses there. Where ya able to savage much from the first?
@scruff3333: I think it was available on some trim levels and/or part of an options package 93-96, then not available in 97 (?!), then 98+ the 2.5RS got rear discs and nothing else.

@NemeGuero: Good luck with your new build! (I'm the one that bought bumper covers from you a while ago and then disappeared off the forum for a bit)
I didn't save anything from the first, i kick myself now for not doing it but I really didn't want to look at the twisted metal just for a couple hundred bucks of stuff that actually survived. I even busted the driver seat.. I just gave it to the wrecker. :(
thanks John! thats a pretty sweet link!
Time to get started:
Pulled the AC system, installed a new radiator and got the brake hardlines to do the ABS delete from the junkyard.
found a torn inner tie rod boot
and leaking valve cover gaskets, and what looks like oil pump.. and everything leaking
also threw on the hood from the old parts car that gave me my last manual swap
its got 2 dents on the nose but looks like they should come out without too much trouble.
Coilovers half on.. started hailing before I could get to the rears
New radiator doesn't leak! and besides dumping all the oil the engine runs pretty smooth.
