      Basically got the car as far as I could and it will be headed to the body shop over in new Hartford tomorrow when I get out of work, and I'll let him finish it up, I should have it back about this time next week then it's hustle hard for h20,

      Thanks to Lucas aka dubfresh for doing all of the body work in the bay. And for talking me into full shaving it in the first place, I didn't plan on going this far, but.. **** happens

      Well finally got the car today, long story

      Anyways, started getting it back together, got a reasonable amount of work done tonight, motor should be going in tomorrow if all goes well





      Started on the brake lines



      All done, just have to pull the master off to bleed that









      Most of the interior going back in





      This is going to be a nightmare, got the car as a shell so it was already torn apart

      More progress today, all the brake line are done, mk4 rear calipers are on, 90% of the wiring is hooked back up to the fuse block, still some small plugs that I need to figure out where they go

      Waiting for my buddy to bring me a g60 starter so I can bolt that up and toss the motor in today, hopefully will have that all wired up tonight and might try and fire it up tomorrow









      Need to run to the store, need some nuts for the tail lights, oil for the motor, coolant, axle, and stop at the bodydrop to pick up the door hinges and get the doors on

      Worked on it all day today and got a lot done, motors in and almost all wired up, 90% of the wires going to the fuse block are all hooked up

      Going to button up everything in the bay tomorrow and try to it fired up, just need to get some starter bolts, mine seem to be way to long

      On the g60 starter there's 3 prongs,,? But on the aba starter there's one plug that gets hooked up, not sure what to do here

      More progress



      Ass end all together















      And I hooked up the battery and only thing I got power to was the lights

      Then I saw this



      Which I believe is the alarm, so tomorrow I'm going to put a fuse in the slot and see it anything happens

      Right on the pinch weld, strongest part of the car, if they can take the abuse of being dragged on the ground a forklift won't hurt, plus It's easy

      Thanks for the good words.

      yes thats the begining of the harness, theres no issue with it.. each wire was done one by one so there is no possible way for anything to go wrong, soldered and shrunk wrap, and i didnt have to extend one plug since i lengthened the middle of the harness, ive done 3 cars like this without an issue so im not worried..
