    didnt think to make a screenshot at the time, but i ordered a set of RC 310 injectors and a Prothane motor mount insert kit from Lightning Motorsports...

    that pretty much takes care of the motor, other than a wiring harness which i'm going scrapyarding for on monday...



    as far as the body of the ol' fo-do....

    a friend of mine is the head painter at BodyMasters in Lufkin...he's going to re-shave everything (back door handles, mouldings), take out all the dents/dings, sand the car down to bare metal, prime the car with DuPont primer, and paint the car Championship White Pearl (which is why i asked for the paint code earlier).....

    all for around $2k!!!!


    so far i've spent $1747.46 on the shit for the motor, and Josh said that it won't be more than 2 grand for the bodywork/painting...that's $3747.46 out of my $5k loan i got (originally for the hatch)....

    which means i think i'm going to buy a new interior (Since i've destroyed mine over the past few months...which i dont think anyone on here knows about except for a few locals)




    yup yup....it's comin back, y0!

    Just junk the damn car and find something you don't have put a lot of money into. Becareful with fixing it because once big projects start there are always hidden things or things that break that are going to cost you.

    too late for him to push it off a cliff, he's already sunk 1100 bucks into it in about 25 minutes of computer time...

    Good luck trying to find a wiring harness in a junkyard. All of the junkyards around here won't sell the wiring harness without the motor. Except one yard, which leaves the terminally injured motors in the cars with the harnesses, but usually there's so many sensors & connectors cut off that it's useless.
