I did the same thing on the last Colt that I built. I went way overboard detailing stuff that was completely blocked from site once the engine was back in. Still gave me a sense of accomplishment knowing that I did my best though. Your car is looking great!

Thanks! I am definitely getting a little crazy with painting some of these brackets and things, but it will be really nice knowing that 1803/2000 will be one of the nicer ones out there!

If all goes well, I should be able to get the dash installed this weekend. I'm quite pumped for that because I have never seen a dash installed on this car!

Loving the build! So you planning on selling it as a roller or finishing it completely?

Tada! Dash is bolted in.




To answer your question: I'm going to assemble it some more so that I don't have 10,000 loose parts in my garage anymore, and then I'll sell it. The final status of it will depend on when I get a good $ offer/trade! Until that happens, I will likely keep building it.

I am finally wrapping up my major house/life projects for the summer, which means I can exist again. I apologize for the delay, and leaving you on the edge of your seat.

This week I got my flywheel machined so that I can finally throw the engine and trans together and stuff them into the car



I also glued the dash back together because it was lifting around the defrost vent. It worked surprisingly well. Gorilla Glue FTW.



Tonight I install the windshield! First time for me. Hope I don't smash it.

Done. It was easier than I thought it would be.



Any buyers yet? I want to build something from the 1930's.

I checked my compression on the mystery engine last night.

150.130.150.100.

So then I did a leakage test. Here is the result. link

I am hoping that it may be due to the adjustable cam gears being misaligned.



Oh and here is a picture from last weekend.

Yeah, once all the carbon was removed, all looked great. I did replace two intake valves that were a little wonky looking, but overall, the head is probably the cleanest one I have owned. I should be able to get it back on the block tonight, which means I can recheck the compression and cylinder leakage. I can't wait!

Great news!

Here are the compression numbers in order...

150 - 155 - 150 - 155

WINNING!

If all goes well, I will have the engine in the car and running in the next two weeks.

Thanks! It is coming out pretty nice! I'll be thrilled when it is drivable again, because I don't believe it has been on the road since ~2001.

Small update:
- Engine cleaned
- Engine painted
- New rear main seal installed

UPDATE:

- New timing belt, pullies, & hydraulic tensioner installed
- Timing cover, harmonic balancer, engine stuff, etc, etc. installed
- Entire fuel system installed!
- Lots of wires connected

So what was gained?
- Windows go up and down!
- Gauges work!
- Wipers work!
- Engine turns over with the key!
- Tail lights work properly!
- Fuel pump turns on!

What's next?
- I just ordered a rubber fuel filler neck hose, because mine is ripped.
- I need to get the shifter cables sorted out. They are wonky.
- I need to get a 14b/16g for it
- I need to install the axles and driveshaft
- I need to completely rebuild all the brakes
- I need to install the clutch master cylinder
- I need a radiator and upper/lower hoses because I don't like what I have.

(I'll add more as I think of it)

Oh, and I know the harness is ugly at the moment, but don't let it stress you too much, I'll get to it.

Thanks! Once my gas filler pipe arrives and my garage gets above zero degrees again, I should be able to get the car running in N/A mode until I find a turbo. I'm guessing that is hasn't run in about 14 years, so that's a pretty exciting event. I cannot wait.

Ha! That is a terrible idea. Don't waste your time or money. It's more work than anybody should ever put into a Galant.
