    I don't know if I will or not. I probably will once I get a little further along with rebuild. Or, I may re name this thread and keep it going. Either way, I know my partners will be posting pics on IG.

    Minor but fender and front bumper only. Purely cosmetic. The engine spun a bearing and was pulled for a rebuild. The front strut is fine and was removed by me to take some measurements. I replaced it with one from my wrecked 88 to keep it mobile.

    What engine are you going with?
    The s14. The original engine is at the machine shop now getting cleaned up. I have a spare I'll most likely run for a little while and then swap back to the original engine. The car is currently at the body shop getting the front bumper fixed, a fender, and a repaint.

    The dash can be like the Abyss....things go in and never return.


    The car is pretty much done. Next time I visit Knoxville I will be loading her onto a trailer and hauling it to scrap. Many parts have been sold and will live on in other vehicles.

    The trunk lid went to a fellow racer. He installed it the day I gave it to him and he went out and won the race. 14hr at Road Atlanta!
    Here he is in impound with the trunk lid.

    I kept the drive train, suspension, and four large totes of parts - some day I will source another shell and swap everything over.

    I've started to sell off little bits and pieces and it makes me a little happier knowing my car is helping keep others on the road. I've decided to keep this thread going and post a picture of the parts and the car it helped out.

    First up: lower gauge trim, knurled nut going to a friend with an 88 M3

    RIP car. Death is not the end, but yet the beginning of your next journey upward.

    I appreciate it. Sad day indeed. I'll have another one as a DD some day but it'll be a while. When I get another one I will definitely post up about it!
