    Thanks Josh & Toes for the recommendations on the trans jack, worked great. I actually was able to get the tranny back in solo.


    Just a few more loose ends and I get to drive this puppy. Also plasti dipped my wheels Bronze. Turned out better than expected for $40.

    Nice, RK I or RK II? I always loved the two piece RK II that were available on the 9-5 Aero.

        HUH?! I assume they were still on the car? Did they just leave the car on jack stands or some sh*t?

          Yup. They dropped my car on two chunks of cement and fucked up my rockers. They also managed to bend the shit out of by front wheel bearing, and take just one of my studs. Also cracked my oil pan further.

                    I used the early system because I did not have a late model radiator and money was tight at the time of the swap.

                      Wtf, who does this shit...

                      Sucks that they messed up your bearings as well, adding injury to, well, injury I guess.

                      A guy in north seattle is clearing out his garage this weekend and I know he has a lot of wheel bearings and M42 stuff.

                      If you need some wheels to roll around on you can use my snows, let me know...

                            Anyone inquire about this car already or know anything about the seller?

                            I'd kind of expect to see a little more interest in the car.

                                a lot of people are trying to get rich quick by buying cheap wagons, for 1000$, spend a few grand importing them, and charging 8, 9, 10, even 15k i see.

                                I have a buddy who lives in bavaria, and said it like 4-5 disappear each week, and a few he called on " oh someone is usa bought it sorry"
