Picked this up in Feb for $650 for a project car for the wife. Finally brought it home yesterday to gut the disgusting fn carpet and interior and get the clutch swapped out.
I managed to get almost all of the interior out minus the door panels and dash (which will probably stay in anyway) and the trans yesterday after a really late start.
So far the car seems to be rust free minus the one big blister on the drivers rear quarter. I was pretty nervous about the rear floor and spare tire well as the top was less than water tight. However, I have yet to see any rust inside, phew.
Here are a few higlights.
Apparently cleaning EVER wasnt one of hte previous owners strong points.
After pulling the carpets and vacuuming up what wasnt stuck to the floor from all the fn pine sap. Im guessing there is still $1.53 in change stuck down there.
The exceptionally maintained motor and wheels (yes that is like 5 years of rusty brake dust on an aluminum wheel).
And the super clean trans, complete with what looks like bubble gum sealing the fn speedo cable
And my sweatshirt pwnage
Im hoping to clean up the trans and get the clutch swapped tonight.
More to come.
