I bought this car last fall from a buy here/pay here place. They said the car kept getting repoed and need work so they were selling it as-is. At the the time the top was coming apart, struts were totally shot and the auto trans slipped. I bought it and towed it back to my buddys place and it sat there till now.
Then back in the end of march i found these on craigslist and bought them. It got really dreaming about fixing the car. They are bbs rx 17" wheels and the PO had them painted gun metal.
About a month ago jim (DaddyOfPayton) Help me pull a good top at the junk yard. Then i bought all the maintenance parts from Napa where i work. Ive got the t-belt, waterpump, t-stat, strut mounts, new axel, clutch cable, battery and a 3m headlight restoration kit.
Then a couple weeks ago, brent (OnelowcabriO) had a set of coilovers for sale. So i snatched those up as well.
Last summer my Bro wreck his 96 gti 2.0 into a ditch, So I bought it off him to part out. I pulled the engine, trans and subframe as an assembly. It was alot faster and simpler. Plus the skid loader helped. Im using the whole 5 speed swap from that car.
So thats whereim starting this project.
