That is a ton of work (And $$$) you are doing. Awesome job so far, looks like it will be a new car when you're done.

That is looking real nice. I have a great appreciation for attention to detail. Makes me want to pull my Gas tank now, something I should have done during my restoration.

Keep it up. Will check back.

I am big into recycling though and if your not into sacrifice or burnt offerings, you may want to stick with 93 octane.

Nice job so far this build is inspiring wish I had the skills/space(condo no working on cars allowed)to duplicate such a build. With that being said there have been several guys on here who have done in my opinion top notch resto/mods on these cars. I say we should do them all collectively as a group. I am sure there is at least one guy in each region who has done such a build/restoration as you have. I would certainly at least like to address the rust issues before it gets worse so I nominate my car for the next rust/resto mod if anyone in the tristate area is willing to tackle such a project. Of course I would fund the project both for parts and labor.

I have BC Coilovers as well. I love mine. Terrible instructions though. I got the one with the inverted tube. I have made no adjustments besides ride height. The car handles really nice. Little stiff for daily, but my car is not daily anymore.

The inside of the tank was very clean. Didn't do anything to it.

Update: Haven't had much time to work on her. Installed the new fuel hose and put the rear suspension back together. I also but back the rear bumper with all new bolts. Two bolts broke when I took it off. So took a little time redrilling those.

Ok since my swaybars are going to be a while. I have started on the front. Took of the front bumper, intercooler, headlights, grill and radiator.

Ordering new radiator and fan shroud. Taking a few more parts to sand plaster (intake box and front bumber suport). The front doesn't look as bad as the rear, but
there is some small rust spots here and there I will have to take care off. The former owner had the car repainted couple years ago and the body shop didn't do the
great job. Lots of overspray. I will be removing all of that. Couple bolts broke when taking of the bumper. I will have to drill them out and retap the thread. Did that
a couple times while working on the rear of the car. The valve cover has a small leak so I ordered new gasket. I want to get the 93 headlights. I really liked
these on my old VR4. Made the car look newer. I will also ad a HID kit. Check out the pictures!!
















This was one of the intercooler pipes on the car!

Took the fan apart to get it sand plasted.


Front suspension images. Going to start taking it all apart. Replacing parts as needed.
