The fuel distributor needs replaced on the 1.7, I took it apart for "cleaning" .... there was no cleaning or rebuilding it. The car runs great on starting fluid tho.
The interior is mostly grey, and the headliner/ pillars/visors are white. I'm going to work on the car Thursday all day, I will be snapping a few pictures to post up.
I appreciate all the advice though, I will definitely do more research before barreling ass into the swap.
