back in the day when the cabby was unmolested.
wheels and spacers.
new recaros and door cards.
rear seat delete, trunk cover, CD deck, and speakers.
broke down on the way home from Big Ohio. thank you AAA gold membership.
finished pulling my first engine. we ended up dropping it down from the car rather than lifting it out with the hoist. had so sawzall the side motor mount but everything else came out as i hoped. now its time to clean, possibly paint, and a new motor. here are some pics...
cleaned the bay today and removed more shit. old harness, ecu, radiator, a/c crap all removed. ready for paint....
well the bay is now ghetto painted. taped off the engine bay, did some sanding, and used 2 cans of high temp engine paint.
prolly missed a few spots but i dont really care. it looks better than before.
motor back in and running.
this was completed about a month ago. i am working on getting some good pics of the car. let me know what you guys think.
