    I just finished buying this car to do for my wife. Hope to have it ready by christmas for her.

    it is a 90 and was a patrol car with auto trans.

    It now has a 5 speed.


    Will be doing Paint.
    Change the wheels to Ponys.
    and maybe rework the interior.

    Today it got new actuators for the door locks. A rewire of the locks and Keyless.
    And we got part of the window tint done, should finish the tint tomorrow.

    10 years so far.


    Car will be Blue, she had a 92 in a Blue several years ago and loved it.

    Also the wheels have to go, I dislike looking like everyone else and everyone around here has welds.

    i say keep the welds on it. its nice an clean an goes with the 80s style...there small an kinda look like they could have came on the car from the factory. i like both looks, maybe keep the welds for drag days an put some 17s on it for the everyday cruise. or you can trade for my ponys an do what you wanted to do lol

    My girlfriend is madly in love with horses, but loves cars too. She just doesn't think she knows jack **** about them. lol I'm teaching her, she wants to learn how to weld and I already tought her how to change her oil. And she loves doing donuts and burnouts. lol I had this girl up at school tell me that it was stupid of me to do a line lock in front of my house cause its a waste of tires and money even tho she goes and buys a $400 purse. lol

    Looks good!
    If you change the color of the interior, I might be interested in those seats. I need to get some Red GT style seats. So if you are going to get rid of them, Id be interested

    The welds will be for sale, Pm with an offer, Tires are New with deep tread.

    The seats may just get recovered, Unsure just yet.



    Yesterday I get the car to my paint shop, But I only have time on Tuesdays and Thursdays to work on it so I will be next week before there is anymore work done.

    Still have to buy filler, Paper, and a few tools also.
