Project ST170 Estate

Well it's bad enough that i have the on going SVT sedan conversion lol but i decided to take on another project. My buddy decided awhile back that he was going to strip down his svt wagon and sell it because the mechanics that did the swap half @$$ed it. Being that i have always been a fan of wagons i tried my best to get it but money was not on my side,sadly the wagon sat almost a year no hood,engine or tranmission at the back of his mechanics shop so spiders other bugs and nature had a field day with it.

When my buddy told me he was scraping the wagon i asked about the parts and he said he had no time to strip and knowing the wagon was in good shape before sitting i had to save it so i bartered with him and was able to secure the wagon for a good deal. Well i got it Thursday and honestly was embarrassed to take pics so i spent a few hours with the shop vac reclaiming the focus and waited till friday to clean more and snap pics.

well i feel like i am talking too much plus i accidentally deleted my first attempt on this so on to pics and list
still dirty but a bit better then before

Parts stashed in the car

Very nice so far. I think I'm going to love this car when it's finished.

BTW. Get those LED taillights. They would look great on this car.

ST170's IMO.

Machs are nice but kind of clumsy looking and I've never been a fan of the Dynabeams. Never seen a set blacked out, though.
