Re: (jamaicula)

ok ok... so here's the deal. I finished school and took a job as an engineer for a construction company in Oklahoma. So of course, I had to find a place and A SHOP for the bean. I've got it all sorted out, so I made a road trip back to my home town to get the car from my parents garage. Here a few pics I took halfway home while checking the straps... and so you guys can see I haven't scrapped or sold the b!tch yet!
it's wrenching time...

Re: (Mk-2)

hey, thanks for the support guys... I'm just so out of the scene right now it's taking me a while to get back in. And when I left off I was in the middle of doing wiring... now I can't remember sh!t about it.
Here's my question. I was just going to half ass it and keep the CE wiring in it since I'm keeping the 16v and management in it and then just try and cut/splice plugs from the mk3 wiring harness I have also to make my mk3 dash swap work. Would it be better to just start over with a CE2 harness for the dash and then what do I have to do to make it work with my CIS 16v? I can't remember crap... thanks in advance

Good thing the garage it was in has a steep drive so I just left the trailer in the street, put down the ramps and it was a straight shot on!
I started organizing all my sh!t so I can find where things are more easily. I've got all sorts of bolts and screws all thrown together so I'm trying to get them baggy'd since I didn't do it the first time around. Just thought I'd take some pics of the greenbean in it's new happy shop.

Disregard all the tractor parts... my dad is an Allis Chalmers nut and rebuilds them on the other side of the blue tarp.


Last time it will be slammed out this low until it's done... it's killing my back so I jacked her up last night!

and finally, something's not right about my motor mount. I know i'm missing some brackets or something for this tranny mount. Anyone have a picture until I can unpack my Bentley. Thanks and more to come!

No such thing as coincidence. All things happen for a reason (sometimes we just don't know why).
