    As many of you know ive been trying to swap out my car for quite some time now. But working full time and being a chemistry major leaves me no time to work on my car. The car curently resides at my friend chris' shop in princeton NJ. In 2 days we have acomplished alot. We went from the car being in a running stock state To well you get the point check out the pics. all my questions ill keep posted as well as updates. i usually only get one day like every other week to work on the car so this will be quite slow.

    Throw some tape over those intake ports young man! Should be a solid 12 second car when you're done.

    Nice! Looks all too familiar from when I helped Aaron tear-apart his engine bay. I am jealous, hopefully I will be doing this next winter, but at that time I'll probably have money tied-up in a home purchase... well, at least the tear-down part is free :D

    Kind of off-topic for this stage of the build, but did you ever get that Word document about how to change a 'vert top yourself? I'm starting to think I want to install my own black cloth top because I'm too cheap (broke) to pay someone to do it. If you do, can you send it to me? That would be awesome.

    looking good man, maybe seeing your car in progress will motivate me to do something with my 95 which just sits and has been for about 9 months now? Post up the filiment of that k-member as well...why not take the extra step and do tubular a-arms and coilovers and call it a day?
