I hope this is in the right forum...but here goes.

Radiator support
L front bumper support
L front bumper
Front fenders
Radiator fans
LH radiator fan plug
Ground wires for alternator
Trams fluid radiator hose
Power steering rack
Front axel
Rear view mirror
2.2/2.5 motor
Potential center diff

Future mods include:

UEL headers
Custom exhaust
Borla/Virbrant/Apexi muffler
5 M/T w/ stage 2 clutch in the future
Performance brake kit
Projector headlights w/ HID's

So far...that's what I have on the to fix and to mod list. Running out to grab parts off of a parts car to start fixing it and fixing Kenny's car. Lets hope All things go according to plan. :)

Pretty much what he stated above. That and 1500 bucks worth in payments whenever we start putting parts together on it. To me, it's not that much seeing as how I've wanted to take it from him a LONG time ago. :P

You know the best places to hunt for them...I'll leave the hunting for you.

Okay guys, long time no speak. I know I'm reviving what everyone thinks is a dead thread, but over the course of the next couple of months and throughout the rest of the year, things are finally going to get moving and stay moving. So far we have:

Signed a lease on a 10x20 storage unit
Removed all of Kenny's crap and spare parts out of the car
Moved them into a storage unit
Begun the hunt for a motor

I'll grab some pictures this evening of the shed and all the stuff we have current when I make a run to the shed to drop off some more stuff. I'll also get some pictures Wednesday of the car in it's current condition.

Looks like you have some work to get done! Good luck. Sounds like you're on it :}

Kennyfvholla 03-11-2013 07:50 PM

This is the car as it sat a year ago. I've since pulled the motor and swapped some snowflakes on it.

Kennyfvholla 03-11-2013 07:58 PM

And here's how it looks as it sits right now. It's going to be hauled to the shed on Wednesday and then the tear down will begin!

Kennyfvholla 03-19-2013 10:50 PM

Hopefully going to get a motor tomorrow! Going to look into a few EJ22E's available around here. More pictures to come.

monkeyposeur 03-20-2013 12:34 AM

If you find a 22E you guys should boost it! ;)
