well, i finally put some work into my 85 240GL. Put the stereo in last week. Pioneer mp3 player deck. Pioneer 4" 2 way front speakers, and rockford fosgate 6x9 4 ways in back.
only the rockfords get the pics though.

Also, I put a new exhaust on it, so I could actually hear the stereo. It isn't quite finished yet, I want the tip to be poking out the side of the car, because as it is, it tubs at while cruising, asnd is louder than it needs to be inside. Also, it sounds a bit ricey at highway speeds:barf:, I'm thinking a resonator tip will clear some of that up. In a perfect world, I would have used a 45 degree bend, and not a 90, also it would have been mandrel bent, but this is just a beater DD, so whatcha gonna do. Now to switch out interiors, and replace that damnable windshield. (I think I'll get one with the antenna in the glass, and weld a nickel into the hole for the janky front antenna). While I'm doing the interior, I'll have to get some plywood to cover the big holes in the rear floor.
Yay for the Rust Belt, and MN's lack of smog checks.

C'mon guys, that's not rust, it's factory lightening.

That's less rust than my 87 had, but not by much. You want me to find you one that doesn't have the salt wounds?

Otherwise, good to see progress on the car. The resonator will help de-rice the sound a little. I need to do that with the Magnaflow on my car. It sounds just like a Honda after I put the header and cam into it.

yeh thats odd. if you meant faggOt it still doesnt make sense, no matter what you have horrible grammar and either you are saying the exhaust is homosexual in some way, or you are somehow comparing it to a stick:???::-P

I will agree that it did not ever sell a broken DVD player.

I'm still confused.

Why would I do a flathhod swap & grille mods to such a pile you might ask...
Well, it's not going to stay on this car forever, the flathood needs some loving(read: a diet, and black paint), and this way it's with me wherever I go.

Yeah, I know it's dirty, but I'm too damn lazy to clean it.

sweet exhaust.. just be careful it doesn't catch the carpet on fire. i recommend duct taping over the carpet padding that comes out of the floorboards when they rust through.

(have the same problem on my 240)

I didn't make it because I thought it looked cool. I made it because the half the exhaust rusted off, and the cat was old & janky. The fact that it looks cool is just an unintended side effect:-P
