      Yea 150 to straighten all 3 then 2 bills to coat...umm I'm not sure..I have a set of brand new 185/50/14's that will probably go on for now until I cut the frame for axel clearance..then I will run a shorter tire..

      tat'l work for now. its hard to find 14" tires that can fit as good as 15" tires would. Theres more verity on 15" tires... i think.

      Cleaned a bunch of dried oil and dirt gunk from around my cold start valve and fuel distributor, some old rotted rubber insulation came right off with the gunk on one of the wires bundles I was cleaning . There is this little rubber grommet underneath the CSV that ends in a wire that is kind of spongey, need to figure out what it is because it looks really old and oil is leaking around the edges which I'm pretty sure is where all the gunk came from. Also cleaned oil from around my oil filler cap, it looks like some might be leaking out of the edges. Oh yeah and I drove around a bunch with a smile on my face pumping chemical bros on the stereo.

      Nothing but the k frame.

      If you use mk3 control arms use mk3 steering rack. Since it already has the longer tie Rods

      I know there is loads of info on the Internet but of you need help pm me. I just did a swap and all the info is fried into my brain.

      Painted my trim today.. May not be very radtastic or as intense as a motor swap but it was necessary and a small step that I could actually do myself...being a girl

      Pretty gross..

      My custom body kit...


      Finally clean..


      The holy grail of all beers..

      Lil bro's 240..

      Gross



      Unfortunately have two different sets of wheels for now..may be tacky but at least it's somewhat cleaner than it was
      Got a lil trim paint on the front bumper..nothin a lil lacquer thinner can't fix.
      May not be much but it's a start. Lowered the back a little more. Wheels are next.

      Lol we're in the same boat. Heard a nasty clunk coming from my rear passenger side wheel, assumed the worst and used it as an excuse to do both side wheel bearings and brakes. Ordered inners, outers, seals, shoes, and drums for both sides and only when I put it back together did I realize that my lugs were too long in the back and hitting one of the plates in the drum brakes. Almost 150 bucks worth of parts, and I ended up fixing the problem with some 20 dollar spacers. Oh well, I needed to do my brakes before inspection anyways
