Here it is the day I brought it home






The color is actually green, but for some reason it turned out blue in the pictures.

This is the only spot that has rust. Not bad for a 93



I will be swaping all the SAS parts from the 89 to this one. I will take alot of pictures along the way.


Here is how it looks as of 9/3/11
