    I guess you guys saw the thread I posted when I found this car in little mexico gainesville, I picked it up of a young kid for $250 title in hand, its missing the entire front end (obviously) but the a6 is good, runs good, its got ground control sleeves with cut springs (garbage), just getting ready to pull the motor out, going to throw my spare dohc zc in it, with nice pretty fully tucked bay, throwing a crx front end on it, de-rice everything,crx door panels, ive got alot of misc stuff laying around to go on it, im prob painting it pearl white, side project for future dd, and its not a bad snag for $250 for a running si hatch

    I had a set of those DAD seats got them from Celerity. They worked great :thumbsup: then my 4pt harness broke the hinges on them. I ended up welding the Hinges so they couldn't be reclined anymore. Ultimately I needed slightly wider seats and sold them to a guy in TN who came up my way to buy a car :)

    I do like the overspray on the rear window and wiper arm. A little lacquer thinner on a soft cotton rag should wipe it off without much effort.

    Looking back through the pictures, I don't see a hood - never a good sign on a DildoState project build thread...

    Man his screen name has some many options to mess with.

    Dildo-State: the status of a person with an object inserted into a cavity.

    Glad to see some good work is started. Don't go too crazy on your wire tuck or the Electrical Gremlins will get you.
