Re: 2nd project started (even faster)

i took the whole entire air box out i left the piece of tube with the sensor on and just put a aftermarket air filter on it because the 93-97 hood wont close with the air box there u might be able to get the air box from one of the 93=97 and make it fit but all the front clip parts bolt right up just need the bumper reinforcement i had to cut the things on the side tha hold the plastic hood twist thing i cant remember the name of them it only took me like 3 hours

The curve under the mirror definitely looks odd. Much better looking without it.

Re: 2nd project started (even faster)

Finally got around to do some work on the car. I did the rear lowering springs, I have Bilstein front and rear shocks coming on tuesday so I will lower the front Wednesday.

here are some photos of how rusted / shot the strut mounts were and the lowered rear.

Re: 2nd project started (even faster)

With a little bit of help the SS was photoshopped to give me an idea what this car will look like in the near future. I still need to fix the wheels, sail panel and roof, and wheels.
