Oh, and let me know if you find a source for the bumper grills. I’m missing one on my bumper.

IF I can find them, I will let you know.

I should be getting one with the engine I'm picking up, but if that falls through, I will surly hit you up. What I really need to find is a stock exhaust. The one on the car is literally falling apart.

Well family vacation is over. Had a good week with my wife and daughter at the beach. Time to get some work done...

Started today. I've never removed a 2 piece bumper, so that took a little extra time. Not to mention I'm spoiled with my sedan having all the plastic removed and wiring tucked out of the way...
Image

Couple small things I found that will need to be addressed. One is the wiring for the dizzy needs to be repaired. One wire already has tape on it, and another has a split in the insulator. Another is the crankcase breather system need completely redone. The rubber hose is pretty well gone, and the pipes are clogged.
Image

There is also this wiring fix... There is a little green wire soldered onto the back of the MFTS connector. It runs the whole way into the cabin, so I guess it must have worked...
Image

Also, the alternator is completely locked up, so will need to replace that as well.

Boy oh boy, that's crusty. Feel lucky we don't use much (if any) salt around here. I bet you're going to find some Easter eggs on this one as you go along.

Hit a little financial snafu, so things are moving a little slower than I wanted. So, instead of going and picking up my engine, I'm cleaning things up, I wish I would have taken before pics :nuts:

Here is the carpet. The PO said he thought it might be trash, but I pressure washed it, and it came out pretty good. Unfortunately the rubber backing is trashed. It's all cracked up and peeling off.
Image

Ok, so this car has 203k on the clock. I honestly believe the valve cover may have had the original gasket on it. Still have the OEM part #s and still kind of flexible.

This is after multiple cleanings at work with a mildly caustic soap, and the 180°F pressure washer. Follow that with a strong solvent cleaning and a good blasting... Now ready for powder coating.
Image

Then there is the intake manifold. This thing was caked horribly on the inside with oil. The breather system in the car was pretty well non-existent by the time I got it, so I can only assume it was breathing in quite a lot of oil vapor for a long time before the timing belt popped...
Image
Image

The throttle body was pretty nasty as well. It was pretty well completely black when I started. This just took a trip into the parts wash tank. After about 10min of scrubbing, and another couple of mins blowing off all the excess solvent, it looks like this

All in all I'm happy with how these came out. Hopefully have more to report soon. I'm still waiting for Audibits to ship me a bumper. He said he isn't happy with the one he showed/sold me, so is trying to find a better one.

Progress is slow, but at least it's something. I need to get my truck fixed(the financial snafu) so I can head up to CT and get my engine.
