Re: Lilredeclipse's Project: Unnamed

I gotta tell you Chris, that car looks familiar to me. I could swear I've seen it at the track in the last few years. I could be wrong, though. You forgot to mention that you've joined the awd side of things........or did you? Is this a trailer only Showdown car? If so, I got some stuff for ya!! Axles, driveshaft, 4 bolt, etc. Just kidding. I know you're not crazy like we are. Can't wait to see what this thing materializes into! And yes, you're a glutton for punishment. No, not because you have 3 DSM's (hell, we have 4!), but because you have three '90 DSM's! Enjoy!

I knew I'd see you in here sooner or later! You know when you convert that thing over, I might be needing a rear ... and those axles... and that driveshaft! HA! I thought I told you it was AWD the other day but I might not have. I think this one will turn into a trailer queen but as for now I will probably drive her to the showdown! I think it would get better gas mileage than the trailblazer.

The car use to have a decent build in it from what I heard. But I'm sure the one that's going in it will do just fine.

Thanks for the comments guys!

You have a small junkyard in your drive way.

Re: Lilredeclipse's Project: Unnamed

Did some more. It doesn't look like much but believe me its a lot! There was a rats nest of wiring under the dash that Had to be taken out. Rewired the car for the gauges, vacuumed the car out, put in the black rear seats, put on working hatch struts, hooked up the lever that opens the hatch. I can't remember everything but here are some quick pictures.
