yeah, i sanded the paint off of the points that were painted, and the bare engine points are rust/ grime free as well. im going to go back and revisit those points, as well as the factory points to see what kind of shape the cables are in now.
heres another dumb question. are the first gen AWD systems the same as the second gen? if i found a 1st gen wagon could i put the AWD into my wagon? i have a possibility at finding a great deal, but its worthless to me if i cant put parts on my car. i know the body is vastly different, but how different is the mechanical stuff?
