Blue 1992 ST185

Postby deepsky » Tue Apr 23, 2013 5:42 pm

Hi guys, old member here, with a project I started in 2006. It was a wrecked '92 from Alabama. Started as Grey, but will now be factory dark blue metallic. I'll up some pics soon. Car is in body shop now getting its new color.

I do have a question, I have a ST205 wta reservoir intercooler, and an after market heat exchanger. I need lines and pump to complete it. I like the sleeper look so an interested in some original wta lines, and maybe pump too. I'm having a tough time locating photos of what they look like, and where they route. There are some lines on ebay, but hard to tell how much of the system is available, or even if this idea is worthwhile. Here is the link to ebay. Could you guys let me know how to proceed here? Thanks.

Nice color. Its going to look great. The st205 WTA water lines did not fit perfectly with the 185s exaclty. I would just find some after market stuff and make my own. Just use something black and it will look stock haha.

A short update. Here is a shot of the finished paint. Rear bumper support was rusted out, got a replacement used. To get back on the road, it needs brake line replaced, rusted out where it goes beneath the car, power steering is not working, license, and misc. parts to put back on. I also am planning on a carpc for a head unit, and have Dynaudio separates to go in stock locations. Also putting in an Escort 9500ci radar detector, and a Compustar alarm. I am going to go without a spare, put in a subwoofer enclosure with fiberglass.
