We can rebuild it. 04 Saleen

Hey Guys,
So roughly 2 years ago come this july i was rear ended and it totaled my 04 saleen. I just couldn't give it up, so i bought it back from the insurance company and decide i wanted to work on repairing, and rebuilding it. Its been sitting in my garage since.





A buddy of mine owns a body shop, well he said i was going to need a rear clip to repair the back end of my current saleen. So i stumbled upon a 2004 SVT EAP which i have currently started ripping into.

Pictured below is my 04 saleen which is totaled, the middle is my 2005 saleen, and on the right is the 04 EAP.




So this week i really got to rip into the EAP Here are some photos.










i am hauling the 2004 saleen down to the body shop to get pulled so i can start drilling spot welds and prepping it for the body shop to merge the EAP and the saleen!







More Photos will come as i continue to work on my rebuilding my first car. I just couldn't let her die.

so are you going with more of an SVT rear end or more of a Saleen? Keeping center exit exhaust, Saleen or FRPP insert with the svt bumper?


sounds like a good project

the 2.3L motor out of your 2004.. you're eventually gonna put that in the 2005 Saleen, right? Otherwise, it just seems like WAY WAY too much work for the SVT motor to serve as a temporary motor swap into the 2004 Saleen i.e. wiring harness, etc.
