And so it begins again......

88 Conquest SHP
october 87 build date
r04 red.
non sunroof. factory louvers
5 speed
Black leather interior.

yes the rear wheel isn't an SHP, but that's because the wheel was flat and we couldn't roll the car. so i swapped one of my spare 8s onto it to roll it around.

Well right now Im just cleaning, taking inventory, and checking out what i actually ended up with. The motor is recently rebuilt, but never started. The hatch was left up during a rain and now the inside smells like grandmas leaky basement. So getting the interior out and thoroughly cleaned is priority number 1. After I get a good grasp of what I have exactly Ill make a more direct plan, but for now I'm daydreaming about something with 16 valves :) and a nice new color scheme (though single stage this time.)


Heres todays work:
Notice the mold on the paper...

Next is to get the carpet out, luckily there hasn't been any rust so far or evidence of it holding water in the car...

and finally..a dramatic sibling picture.
