Project St185 (Bringing Back From The Dead)

Postby Braddah_Aloha » Sat Dec 18, 2010 8:57 pm

So here it is.... This car was bought 12/17/10 > Last Night it took about one phone call n a few text messages between friends. Actually They Frequent on here before.. my good and longtime friends theUNYTEDone (Nigel).....and Syko Say (Evan)..... At that time this was their Myspace/Facebook HAHA anyways..

Myplans for this car is to hopefully do what they wanted to do ... n keep this car running and alive.. I dont plan to sell it n will KEEP THIS IN THE FAMILY for a long time.

The car is Currently Not Running. The same Problems. Blown Turbo.. the Engine Knock (Unknown >Thinking its a spun bearing) and the coolant leak. (Does This Sound Familar its evans old car lol)

I spent most of my time last night putting it back together and try to peace it out and see how it goes together. Their is a 99% percent chance that a motor swap is about to come. Im shopping around and JDM one might be it. In the mean time ill be shopping for parts and will post them when they arrive. Give Updates and progress on the car with pics.

Just wanted to say thanks in advance for the help from Alltrac.net and its members ..MUCH Mahalo

why not just use the money that you would to buy a swap and get some forged goodies to rebuild the motor for a higher HP capability :shrug:

Lol. I was thinking the same. The car needs some serious TLC. Nothing thousands of dollars can't fix :) . The car needs paint/body work, an interior cleaning (shampoo the carpet), and consider swapping to a 3rd gen motor. That car needs lots of love. Don't despair. Hang in there. It's good seeing these cars being brought back to life (especially after being neglected.... :x )

on Evan's behalf, the car sat for a year.
also had a falling-asleep incident as far as the body damage is concerned.

a bunch of things were removed and or sold.

i didnt know it only had 112k though!
nor did i know it had no spare. lol.
