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!

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.
before


after


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.

lol shoulda seen that coming. I'd never use them and would hate the extra mess of plumbing but I guess I could at least put the nozzles on to plug the holes.

i dont ise them much either. mostly just a cool factor to have them. and theyre relatively simple, especially since you’ll have the whole front end apart. the hoses tuck in there pretty easily.

i’ll check my parts stash.. i may have a couple extra nozzles for you.
