Interior slowly getting put together. Ended up just hard wiring the essentials to toggle switches. 3 different wire colors all trying to get matched up and some how none of those wire colors match the colors on my schematics. So i said screw it, i'm making my own wiring.


Mounted...


My list of stuff to do keeps growing and growing. I thought I was getting close.


It's on the studs and at full drop. Had to squeeze it on. But now I can see where I need to cut to get these puppies tuckin.

Snow came today.
Got a little too happy doing donuts with the bobcat to realize where my ditch was against the back of my parking lot.


Radar was trying to be a dalmatian. Unfortunately for him, he's black. It won't work.


Enjoyed breaking out the beard though. Happy the snow is here... unhappy my vehicle is not operating yet.... ALMOST there. (ish)

Somehow, I managed to powder coat and dip the wrong master cylinder. Externally they are almost the same but interals are different and can't be swapped sooooo.... I have to put this ugly thing in for now.


Today was "get the wheels on there day". So the cutting began.



And before I knew it... that landmark point of a build showed up when it's back on all fours and you kinda get excited inside cause you like what you've done. All that hard work and effort just starts to peek around the corner at you and a slight "fizzing" sensation ensues....




Tried to go all fancy with the wheels. That's actually just as far as I could turn them before they hit things. HaHa. We'll git er sorted out tamarrow

Here ya go for today. Drives like a bag of hammers and makes all sorts of unpleasent noises but.... what do you expect when you build a car. Takes some time to figure out the kinks.

Well I heard a noise the other day when I was on my way home. Sure enough as I was close to home, I all of a sudden a big "clunk" and the battery light came on and I knew what was up...
Crank pulley sheared right off.



Good thing I got spares.


Got her all fixed up now and she's right as rain.

And lights because well.... this thing doesn't draw enough attention to itself already as it is.

Quoted for Truth. Wasn't there some mention of a turbo 1.8?

So cool.

What diff do you have? Sorry if I've missed it.

This thing probably gets through more snow than my AWD wagon would.

I have a turbo kit here for a 1.6 but guy who rerung this engine and then gave up after his second attempt, I think over honed it and subsequently this motor burns a butt ton of oil. It seems like there is no 1.6's available in Canada. My time into rebuilding a 1.6 plus parts to me is not worth it.
I may as well swap in a 1.8. A 99 1.8 is cheaper then a 1.6 anyway. Sooooo, maybe I'll go that route and throw a turbo on there.

Left the shop to go get the mail... head another noise. Silly me didn't seem to notice the temporary shocks I put in there were VERY hacked together by whoever put them to together. (probably cause I was in a rush to get this thing mobile.) Stripped the treads right off the top. Thought I snapped it at first. Good thing I have many spares. Got her all fixed up quickly and I went and got the mail.
