whats up guys. i wasnt gunna make a build thread for this but what the hell. i found this car on craigslist for 180. the guy had it sitting in his garage for a few months. when i went to go pick it up it was nasty inside and out. there was even a dead rat under the car. the PO even told me his cat has been killing/finding rats in the garage.
my wish list is to get it to run good, then eventually swap a motor in it. im think aba turbo or vr6. maybe even a 16v. for now im just going to clean it up since its real nasty. it had a minor accident on the front end so i need to source some parts.
also, i like to thank VDub2625, and his A2resource.com web site.
the bad :
the PO said it was overheating and said he thinks its the head gasket. the fans nor the temp gauge worked. so i replaced the thermostat. some help from VDub2625, i tracked down the issue. the plugs for the temp gauge wernt connected it. after that everything was working properly.
