I figured I would start this now, to see who needs what. I have an early '89 80q with square stock switches, no air bag, and a trip computer. I don't know if the trip computer works though. Overall the car looks to be in good shape, but apparently it doesn't run right. It has around 218k on the clock, and I was told it shifted beautifully. I'm going to try to get it running enough to drive it a little, and make sure everything seems ok.

So here is what I know about the car.
-It's lowered. Was told it has H&R springs, was also told it has been upgraded to the later 2 piece suspension. Will confirm asap.
-it has my old stebro rear muffler on it.
-it has the 034 S2 shifter mod.
-it has clear corners on DOT headlights.
-it has a driver cubby(looks like some of the screw holes are broken)
-it has a pass through tank for a ski sack(I've never seen an 80 with this option)
-it has almost new(was told around 1500 miles) 14" tires.
-it still has the headlight squirters, and they look to be in good shape.
And it still has the AUX radiator, which looks to be in pretty good shape.

The car has had a grey leather seats from a 90q swapped in, and is pretty good shape other than the driver's seat. It's a black car, so most of the body panels will probably be put in storage for my car if anything ever happens.

Now, here is the rub. I'm in the middle of moving, so this will be quite slow. I am going to Carlisle, so I can bring parts there. If there are any parts you need, please shoot me a PM, and I'll get back to you ASAP. I'm doing this to fund my TIG welder purchase, so don't hesitate to make offers.

I have been asked twice now, so I'll put it here.

I will not sell the car as a whole. This is because the car car many problems that would make it not worth repairing. The engine is bad, the fuel system is hacked, multiple electrical issues, the windshield leaks, and the interior carpet is soaked and smells. I would assume the floors are getting rusty due to the standing water in the front of the cabin. Yes, the body looks to be in good shape, but we are pretty sure it is a respray, and the DS back door is rusting, and other areas are showing signs of rust as well.

Got the front end pulled off today, and the aux radiator looks pretty good. Has some corrosion, but nothing hateful. I'll post pics later, was in kind of a rush today.

Bumping this because I'm "officially" moved into the new house. I now can check on things much quicker and easier.

The shift knob was not original. The other parts are sold already.

As for the ebrake lever, there is no boot on these.
