Default Lumber Wagon Version VII

I bought this 82 245 GLT from a member to be my new work rig.
Yes the commandos will stay this is not a girly man car.

82 245 GLT / M 46



V - 1 'The Sopwith Camel'
1971 145 S / BW 35



V - II 'Blacknose'
86 245 DL / M46

Photobucket

V - III 'The Blue Mule'
87 245 DL / AW 70

Photobucket

V - IV 'Seafoam'
72 145 E / M 40

Photobucket

V - V 'The gold car'
Making frequent guest appearances in the fray is Mom's car.
87 245 DL / AW 71

Photobucket

V - VI 'The Turbo Car'
83 245 GLT / M46

Photobucket

IPD Sway Bars & Overload springs are always the first modifications.

Photobucket

25-25's

Photobucket

EMT Upper braces help too.
All go no show.

Photobucket

Blacknose was quite the beast,I did several $5 mods.
That is $5 worth of hardware and what have you.
Here is a stainless belly pan,and air pickup made from an old BBQ hood.

Photobucket

The 86+ 2 main belt/stack of washers,and longer bolts AC Delete.

Photobucket

Some R Sport Boost Goodness for the 83.



OE Goodies



A bit of help for the 82 turbo fire wall harness.

240 T Firewall Wiring 7

Snow Scoop to increase ventilation underway,and just because I can.

Photobucket

Double Squirter Flat Hood Transplant.

Photobucket

5 New Falken Ziex 912's in 195-65-15 on Polished Virgos provide a balance of grip, fuel economy,and ground clearance.




Use The Best Forget the Rest.

Photobucket

Black Interior swap from the 83 into the 82 and vice versa.

245 GLT Interior Swap

A bit of butt cheek R & R on the 83.
Since it's wintertime the drop light is underneath warming the metal so the paint goes off properly.

Photobucket

Strips of grip tape from West Marine keep the spare from burning through the paint.

Photobucket

Rattlecan!
Don't worry.
It's inside,and it's epoxy.




The 82 turbo came with quite a few IPD items.



Scored a 90 245 flush glass liftgate in color #189 white on 30% off body panels week at the JY.

Photobucket

Some balla huevos complete the look.

I dig all of your wagons so much. You should call this one ''blackie'' just for the irony.

I really miss the Seafoam car,
it was like a little jack rabbit the way it hopped down the road.

It is a very nice car but the 82 has a stronger engine.

You and your wagons. I picked up that '79 245 a few days ago. Now my '82 is being torn down to sacrifice itself for it..

Yep, the entire front clip is off of it now. I'd put it back together but the sum of parts is more valuable than what the car would be if I put it back together..

Yes the AC works good on both of them.

IPD overload springs, and 25mm sways are moved over from the 83.

Both the Sopwith and the Turbo are nice cars.

Please keep adding the paint prep work! As you know I'm getting ready to do the same in the hopefully near future... I'll just copy you...

Are those 780 wheels on Seafoam? I've always wondered how those would look on an earlier car. Very nice!
