You can clean it. Portland makes cars gross.
You can figure out why it's not getting fuel.
And most importantly you can cut your springs. Second most important, don't spraypaint things stupid colors or add a bunch of stickers.

Capital letters and periods. Please learn when and how to use them.

Good luck on getting the car running.

Well if You drop it and fit some epic wheels than now one would give a rats ass for the bodywork.
Proper bodywork is pain in the ass.

Good to see more 200-series owners on S|W.

What year is yours? I'm guessing it's an '84. Can't wait to get my '79 on the ground and fitted.
