Finally getting around to this car as it is a last priority right now, unfortunately:

Poly Bushings


Coilovers, 300 in-lb front springs, koni yellows, camber plates


S60R brakes


Getting some new brake fluid and I still have to remove the rear porportioning (reducing?) valves and replace with just the braided lines. Waiting for lug nuts for the spacers as well.

The latest headache: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=98070

I didn't know my Titans weren't going to clear the S60R brakes in the front.

Otherwise got some grey 86+ fenders installed this past weekend, but I still need the sheetmetal up front in order to mount the e-codes.

the latest headache is that you have all this sweet stuff and its sitting in a garage doing nothing not even getting toyed around with. just bumping so people see sweet things and give you crap so you actually start doing things.

I can understand being busy with other stuff but it feels good to get in gear on a project. I want to see more sick 244's!

Dude stfu. I live 60 miles from the car and pay $25k a year for school. School that requires a lot of time to pass and get good grades. I care more about that than my car right now.

This summer......

All right, week off school, time to get some **** done.

Goals:

-Finish up the brakes - install the rear braided lines, remove porportioning valves, new master cylinder and slim brake booster, fresh fluid.
-Remove all factory wiring for k-jet and other stuff not needed
-Finish prepping the b230ft and hopefully get that installed
-Rebuild the OD on the M46 which should stop the leaks
-Sand and spray the new fenders flat black to match the hood.
-Start working on MS wiring harness.

For now, otherwise its white car, grey fenders, black hood. I'd rather have black hood and fenders on a white car.

Plus the fenders need a little surface rust off of them.

Time to add some pics to this thread.


Thanks, Tiebird!


Cleaned up wiring all day today. No more washer tank or AC or charcoal canister.


Why I might as well just paint the fenders to match the hood.


Just waiting. Still have to put in the ipd cam, intermediate shaft, air-oil cooler, resurfaced flywheel, MS wiring harness.


Evaporator isn't hard to pull out either.


Yay, wiring!



This car is so rustfree, its amazing.


Flush glass.




Titans are going on the S70, looking for two more Volans yet.
