I wasn't going to do a blog. But I think I should, a little bit for myself so I can go back and see all the work I've done, and a little bit to give others ideas and help. There will be plenty of pictures in the coming post, and I'll try to document as much of it as I can.
My short term goals are simple. I'm a 27 year old college student (Spent the last 7 years in the military) so money isn't abundant. For this reason it may be a slow build, and I'll be doing *most* of the work myself. I intend to keep this a driving project, with only quick small things at a time. It isn't my daily driver, but I get unmotivated quick if I can't drive it.
The first phase of this project will be to fix anything broken. When I can I will improve whatever is broken, but it may just be fixed with stock parts. For example I replaced my radiator with an aluminum one because the price difference was not huge, and being in Phoenix I take my cooling system seriously.
The second phase will be where I start improving various things.
The third phase, which is far down the road will be to pull it off the road for a year or so and refresh everything. Don't expect this within the next few years.
This is what I'm starting with. Pictures taken from the day I got it:
