Been on the road for the last 4 months, enjoying so much in its current state that I didn't follow up on blog so here goes the list of work I neglected to post :
1. Full suspension rebuild:
a. Bilstein sports with HR SS
b. IE poly bushings everywhere (diff mounts, sway bars, control arms, rear trailing arms) Car feels tight!!
c. Condor Racing Rear subframe mounts
2. Overhauling of Single Circuit brake system keeping all original parts going:
a. Rebuilt Front Calipers all ATE parts & Remote Brake Booster (Shut out to Martin at Power brake exchange in San Jose)
b. Rebuilt ATE Master Cylinder on pedal box
c. New Wheel Cylinders and brake shoe adjustment
3. Car had no driveline so I mashed together the original 3 piece front with a 02 shortened by 1 1/4" rear mated to a rebuilt e21 LSD (Shutout to Steve @ San Jose Driveline)
Summary: So far I can start her up with no hesitation, and cruise at 80 on the freeway with no vibration, day and night to my last 02. Up next is all cosmetic as I want to have her shining for next summer. The goal is to have a period correct Rally machine.
I want to thank the FAQ Community for its amazing depth of knowledge and its incredible humble community for providing 100's of years combined of knowledge and for sharing some of those hard to find knick knacks for killer prices.
On to some pics of its current state looking classy as the sun goes down.
