After all is said and done, I still thank god that you didn't. smile.gif

It was a heartache to get her where she is, but 1600 miles later, I love this car the more I drive it.... I don't know that I would've bought a 6g if I hadn't picked this one up.

So I went back to Chicago for the weekend and the wifey had a little suprise waiting for me....





Apparently, her a Vincent_Doggy went behind my back to get me a great early birthday gift! smile.gif

I really don't like being kept out of the loop, but by all means Vince.... smile.gif

I also took a pic of the engine 2000 miles after the blow smile.gif

So, I figured that I'm just going to make this my project thread....

Anyway.... Time for a little update! After making a huge mistake and remote starting Abby into my neighbor's jeep I've got almost all the parts I need to get her back into shape (I'm waiting on my headlights from a guy on alltrac.net). I'll be replacing the body panels in the spring so that nothing else happens this winter. But on top of replacement parts, i decided to spoil her a bit and pick up some JDM tails that I just couldn't pass up.

I just got back from putting them on and they look AMAZING!!!

In process....


Done!


After a little wash biggrin.gif





Huge props to Richee3 for getting me these tails! Thanks again buddy!

Turns out the passenger side harness didn't work, so I just swapped out my USDM harness on the one side lol

Thanks again Daniel!

I got Richee3's HIDs in this week and put them in yesterday. Needless to say that I'm really pleased with the way they look.

Dan: I ended up using the 4300K bulbs b/c I couldn't get the 6000Ks to fit in the light housings properly. Thanks again though!

WOOT!WOOT smile.gif


EDIT: That knocking that you hear is my throwout bearing.... Its done that since I put the motor back in the car. I'm not too worried about it cause I'll probably end up changing out the clutch this summer.

HID's look good! Hopefully you get to use them longer than I did! I never had anybody flash their lights at me with them, and I was always worried about how the yellow fog lights looked with the white HID's, but I asked a few of my friends when I passed them and they all reported that the fog lights actually looked kinda white too, so don't worry about those. Everyone also said it was very easy to tell when it was me coming down the road because of how the lights are arranged on the car and the fact that I had the brightest lights, but not blinding. So you're all set thumbsup.gif

Alright, so I haven't updated this is a minute, but since the last time some stuff has happened....

On my way to my college graduation, the clutch went out on me.... So a clutch job in 10*F was fun....

My two babies in the same garage! (it doesn't happen often)


We pulled the motor to get to the trans since we were having issues with frozen cross member bolts. Harness unplugged from inside the car and pulled through the firewall.




Hood off, check. Though we put it on top of the car rather than on the floor for fear of our friend's Australian Shepherd.




Cherry picker, check.





I decided that 1 human power was momentarily better than a 5sfe's horsepower.





So the throwout bearing has been clicking for over a year, and we thought it finally grenaded itself. But once we got the trans apart, here is what we found.







Check out those awesome springs!






So, we come to find that the clutch disc threw a spring. The spring itself snapped into four separate pieces, which is what I'm holding in my hand. That was our problem. Surprisingly, the throwout bearing was still intact. In any case, it all got replaced.

The next two were taken in front of the Field Museum
