ok well about last Nov. or Dec.
i picked up this SVT for like $2500 or so
it was in "ok" shape i more wanted to save it lol..
it had over 240K on the same stock motor
Most have seen this before ...

well i used the car as a DD for a little while - after makin it look "right"
but the oil pan got a small oil leak from rust
(the dude i got it off got the car back East)

so i said f# ck putting in a new oil pan i will replace the motor lol..

i picked up a parts car , and ended up replacing everything
and i meen everything from the parts car , the onlything that
stayed the same was most of the body and the seats

sooooo on to pics ( SOME NOT IN ORDER BUT OH WELL LOL )

it came into my hands a little like this




well as soon as i got it home i made it look like this


then painted the rims black -this is the way it stayed till i stated this build
black EAPS euro grill and some black turn signals..


stated pulling the motor


pulled the motor and stated pulling out the wiring harness
(the dude liked to splice into everything)







put the new dash new center con. and new carpet and the wiring harness in


i only started takin pics like half way in to some stuff..
but i replaced the rear sub frame, suspension and brakes and new ebrake handle and cabe all the way back , new brake lines , new shift cables ..
along with the front sub frame and front suspension and brakes..

and added some euro bumpers and sold the stock ones
i took off the big wings west wing and put the stock SVT wing






painted a few things










then picked up some Grids -will be powdercoated white


now the last few days have been:


pulled the motor out the parts car (now in the garage gettin cleaned up)


fixed the rip in the driver seat

(looks a little better now after playing with it , but hell its better then what it was)

also found out why the seat warmer was not workin , so i also fixed that


dropped the front sub frame off the parts car and put on the Eibach front sway bar


THINK THATS ALL THE PICS I HAVE NOW
