Possibly. The dents in my current front bumper most likely will not pop out. So I need to either find an OEM replacement, or go with RB.

subbed this is inspirational. I'm in fix up mode relative to my new 94' at the moment so that I know it will be reliable, but I will likely take a very similar route.

Ugh, I know I know. Rust is the worst part about New England, but we learn to deal with it. I love top down weather as much as I love skiing through a blizzard, so New England treats me well.

You know its New England by the propane heater in the garage. It has just started warming up here in Chicago. Cheers to top down weather my friend!

I bent the heater core hard line out of the way a bit to make room for the manifold, but the dipstick is still in the way. Do I need to make a bracket to relocate it off to the side a bit? There is also a ground that attaches on the nut side of it.

Also went over some of the engine bay with some Simple Green. It will need a few more passes, but its amazing what one cleaning can do!

Now for the good stuff:



hey sorry to quote all the pics and all. I was just wondering where you got those bolt on attachments to your turbo, don't feel like chopping everything off mine.

thanks

Picked the car up last night! It looks great. Definitely brings the car to a whole other level.

We're going to let the paint harder for a couple of weeks (while I autocross) and then bring it back for a final wetsand and buff.

Excuse the pollen in the pictures. Damn Spring.
