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

Had some brake problems.



Along with a broken adjuster cable, dont have a pic of it though.
Here is all the parts that will be going into it. Everything is striped from the 89.


Should be able to start it in a few weeks. Before I do, I will throw some paint on everything to keep from rusting anymore.

Now you have to re-gear the 8.8 to match the D30.

I say are you going to build a different track bar mount or still use the one you have, I wonder why it looks just like mine, which I need to do the mods that you did to get it to quit flexing.
