"Only" 244k miles?? Geez William, you will be a rival to Chris E's 1.4M miles with that one. Of course with your 7M and goodies in it Chris E will be looking at your taillights all the time too.

everything except the interior, the gray leather is nice so ill wiat till i get another sdr before swapping in the black leather. im gonna put in my 7mgte, r154, truetrac with 3.727 r&p, coilovers and tokico illuminas up front, st's and agx shocks in the rear, addco's, ljm front bar, custom rear bar, my entire stereo system from the red car that got wrecked, 16x7 enkei 92's, put my mint 85 hatch on it, my gauges, evc3, and lots of odds and ends. gonna take a little time. espeacially since i need an i/c, but my friend said i can have the stocker off one of his mkiii's so shouldnt be a hold up. i cant wait to be boosting again.

when/if i get it there will be lots of pics, and i will take better pics of the 7m going in and of some things i want to do a little different. it wont be done as fast as normal. i want to go ahead and install the r154, the suspension, the 3.727 with the truetrac, etc....

well, i went and got the car today. it needs some work. first off, the moron siliconed the sunroof shut then taped off the roof and painted it with black enamel so it has to be sanded off. then, the idiot did the same thing to the hood, ,but with silver in a weird ass design to cover the faded spots. the hatch is shot (good thing i have a perfect one) and there is a little ding in the front right flare, looks like his son dropped his bike and the handlebar hit it. the interior is pretty decent except the front seats, they are had, he did have some nice seat covers on them though. the engine runs awesome, espeacially for 244kmi. it has some brand new ngk wires that will go on the blue car when the motor comes out and it handles sweet too. tommarow im gonna jack it up to look at the suspension and exhaust and will post what i find. i should have pics developed next week. time for the madness to commence. :twisted:

Ya, good luck with getting the car! I've got another one comming to that I posted about kinda similar,.. but this one is wrecked. Got the word from the towing place that it was mine on this coming wednesday! :D Only 168k miles on her... :p Pics will be on the way soon,.. but it's not going to be a pretty picture with the front smashed like it is.. :cry: I'm gonna give a shot at fixing it,.. but if worse comes to worse,.. I'll just swap in the running gear into the Silver '86.. :wink: We shall see..... Good luck again on your find man! :dancin:

well, the hatch is rusted worse then erics i think. guess we need to have a contest. close both hatches and see which one littered the ground with rust the most. lol. anyhow, i kind of like it too, but i like the 85 hatch better, and thats whats going on it.

They look good wingless don't they bob? (Flame suit on) I've liked the look of the 82-84 mk2s with the wing removed for years. Looks like a sweet car Will, welcome to the black mk2 club! Now, get that hood repainted pronto! :throwup:
