lastresort576 Posted November 14, 2010 Share Posted November 14, 2010 (edited) So it's been a few months since I've been around and you may remember that I snagged a '93 si with a very clean body for cheap..Well the car is pretty much all finished I just need to install the side skirts and a radio. Prior build thread link: Black sol build thread Here comes early May. Instead of leaving the car alone so I could attend some event this year. I found a new project. A buddies '93 del sol si snapped a timing belt and the shop told him it bent a rod as well. The body on this car is in much better shape than my black sol. I just threw it out there and he said $350..Needless to say I snatched it right up. Just used AAA to pick it up And on it's way into my new garage..Ie Barn. The tear down begins! Late at night and several beer's down leads to this: The rear suspension, although looked to be free of rust was the BIGGEST PITA to remove of course like we all know.. MAP Gas + PB Blaster = Lot's of billowing smoke So because pretty much all of the parts on my black car were basically brand spanking new I swapped the parts back and forth. The suspension, brakes, trailing arms. The Carpeting on the black sol was better, Which while it was out of the car I took a carpet cleaner to..Also, I need to run a '94+ dash because the b16's never came in a sol with out a passenger airbag. and swapped the dash's too...Like I said EVERY THING New fender installed, just waiting to pick up the new captive blue door..Even trade for the black one Edited November 14, 2010 by lastresort576 Stevotron5000 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
