I'm just giving you crap, but that'd be cool. The door lock is the big issue.

first u i needed to remove the blown suspension that was on it. one problem that i knew i wanted to tackle right away was the super short top hat studs that came on the WL top hats.
Image
here you can see the studs that i removed from the WL top hats on the right. the bolt on the left is what i was originally going to replace it with but i noticed that the stock studs were longer than the WL ones so i used those instead.
Image
Image
i dont have any pictures of what it looked like on the white car, but the nuts were only on by a couple of threads. i am much more comfortable with this result haha

here is how she sits with the old/new suspension setup and my rattle canned 6 spokes from my white car.

Look like this sedan's full of potential. Can't wait to see what you have planned for her. Who makes that strut bar?

ok so im really terrible at this whole build thread thing, but things maybe changing haha
as some of you know already, i just picked up a 93 turbo wagon that will be my new dd.
hopefully this will allow me to get the black car in the garage and start working on her finally.
thanks for your patience! :D

so as my signature says but the link isnt working for some reason, my sedan is for sale. its in pretty rough shape at the moment but if some one is looking for a good project starting point, for now it would be at a decent price, say 1200 or best offer. that is for bbs members only, i want this car to go to an enthusiast that. im in no hurry to sell at the moment. but come summer and the warmer months ill start doing all the work im about to list and sell it for more.
needs a new 5 speed, drive line, and pedals and plugs. i pulled them for a 5 speed swap.
needs a new core support
