Now I'm sure there's a thousand little things Bryan and I have done to this car over the last 10 months
that I've completely forgotten about :/
Here is how the car sat when I got it. As you can see it's nothing to write home about
but I was happy with my purchase.
When I found the car it was tripping 12 or 13 different codes.
The stock goldies were turning a brownish color from brake dust
or rust...I couldnt tell which.
The paint was faded and bland.
The interior smelled like death and the seats were worn out.
It had a satellite radio and only the front two speakers worked.
But at the end of it all the engine ran good (in spite of all of the codes
it was tripping at the time) it doesnt have any rust and the transmission
shifted super smooth so I figured anything else could be worked on.
This is my project car:
Bryan messing with it the first night.
Clean enough to eat off of.
Photos from the next morning:
After 10 hours of scrubbing, clay bar and a 3 stage black wax
And of course the next day Florida all of the sudden gets uncharacteristically cold.
The hood was popped a bit and heck...I have no idea why now. Was a while ago.
The interior was nasty to say the least:
"Mods" (most of which has been getting it running and back to stock)
-First things first - I looked up the codes and found that the diagnostic cables were plugged in
and that instantly cleared up 11 of the 13 codes.
