      Changed the oil. It's really nice to do regular maintenance stuff instead of rebuilding this and replacing that.

      I'd like to find a fresh new front bumper for her come spring, since the one that's on there is kinda rough. Now that she's running nice, I'd like to get her looking as pretty as possible (luckily, all the rust is underneath).

      Will post pics in the springtime after a good wash and wax!

      Tore the front end off the car to do the timing belt and exhaust manifold gaskets. Glad I'm doing both even though the car could be down for week due to time constraints.

      Might not be able to see it, but the belt has seen better days.

      Front gasket was blown out and causing a ticking sound. Also having to replace the front and rear top exhaust manifolds studs. Will be glad to have the ticking sound go away.

      Well I bought my 93 90CS FWD on tuesday night. froze my ass off on the hour ride home. pulled it in the garage. tore out the glovebox and pulled the blower motor. come to find the tumbler fell off of the shaft. got it put back together and now i have heat. then last night I replaced the passenger front shock. talk about a P.I.T.A. and then my gauge cluster lights just went out.

      what did i do today? bought my coupes older twin brother who had a hard life on the streets...

      so what needs to be fixed?

      Here is the "current" list

      Wheel bearing
      2 window regulators
      door cards/handles need attention
      a through cleaning
      Heater core(currently bypassed)
      find out why blue painters tape is holding on the isv
      re-key, the key only works in the ignition and apparently there is no door key.
      drivers seat needs a make over
      new steering wheel, this one is the type you can drive with handcuffs on....


      The car actually runs REALLY good, it turns over in half a second, you can tell it doesn't want to die yet.
      So over the next few weeks we'll start reconstructing this one... it isn't as nice as the red coupe i found, but it does run and i don't have to swap an engine into it, so that is a plus.

      I swapped everything under the timing covers tonight with new replacements and replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets too. Had it disassembled already as seen above. Assembly should be pretty straightforward from here. This engine compartment really needs some heavy degreaser love. Too bad it will have to wait until it's warmer out.

      IMO that's a waste of a quattro, there goes all your offroad/deep powder capability...
      though, i like the way your car looks.
