It's the one at south island I was talking about before. I went back today and it's still there. The front end was already taken off and they used it to fix another car. BTW it is an 88. IC and front bumper are gone, passenger fender is gone, coilpack gone and turbo gone - a few other things as well... I didn't really poke around too much. I was there looking for other stuff for my car between classes.

I think that it's definetly worth a look if either of you is seriously interested. Like I say - the car looks like it was maintained really well while it was alive. The body is in AWESOME shape too if any of you 3 is looking for white exterior parts. The only panels missing are front bumper, hood and passenger side fender. All the trim is in great shape as well (it's black/grey pinstripe).

I'll be going back tomorrow or friday to pull a fender off another car and check how bad it's rusted in behind the wheel well if anyone has a request.

A UHaul trailer is only like 75 bucks for a day.
I dunno though, they would probably want a fair bit more for the entire car. I'm not sure how the interior is doing anymore, since it sat out there all winter. She's been there for a while now probably since september. IT is maroon leather though. It's basically good for bodyparts and a few odds and ends.

Meh, I told him to just risk it. He'll only be running 10 psi, how much power can he be at really . He doesn't NEED a new one, and for the amount of money an aftermarket one costs it's worth risking.

Bah I don't think I need drilled rotors. I don't really ever need to brake hard... I don't plan on racing my car and the only time I'm driving fast is on the highway - I don't think they really get that hot.

But looks like the deal on those ones isn't for brembos, just some generic chinese made crap. It says right on the website they won't live up to OEM standards lol.

Bob should just keep the stock clutch for now, it should get him through the summer.

I'd leave it alone and get the car together noow that the weather is clearing up.

In the 3 months he drives it (if he can last that long without tearing it apart again for some tiny imperfection) it should hold up fine. Then since he's gonna tear it apart again in the fall anyways... do a clutch job then if need be. It'll give ya something to do Bob :P

Haha thanks Reuben, its not like i want to tear it apart every fall... well hopefully next year it can stay together... chances are slim but hopefully! lol. Ive decided im just going to take the engine out again while the head is off and resurface and lighten the stock flywheel and then reuse my stock toyota clutch because its only got like 5000km or something stupid on it right now anyways so it should still be fine.
