So with us starting at 138K miles on the engine/chasis, I began with stripping the crappy bubbling tint off the driver, passenger and rear window, replaced the turbo (because the turbo seals were out within hours after I bought it, go figure)

Anyway... now at 140k miles on the chasis, I decided to do a complete engine rebuild, (new rings, bearings, pistons) and it runs immaculant. Also buffed the whole car and polished it and stripped the windshield wipers of rust and re-painted them jet black. You can see how nice it cleaned up after buffing it, from the pictures on the right.

Least to say, car has come a long way from when I bought it, it is totally solid now, a great DD that has some aggresive performance. You would not recognize it now, but I truly appreciate all the hard work I ended up putting in this car, and all the help from great friends, and even family.
