I have always had regrets after selling 1101 a few years back. It was a great solid car and was clean. Over the years it passed through a few hands and I found the current owner here on the the ORG. He was making a good effort to get it back to it's former glory but sadly sometimes life happens and he had to sell. Luckily I am in a position to buy it back and will be picking it up tonight. I am very excited about this because it was the "family" car we bought when we had our son.

My plans for now are to get it up and running again and clean it up as much as possible. After we finally find a house and I have space to really work on it again I plan on bringing it back in a great way. I will get some pics tonight when I pick it up and might even start the slowest build thread ever.

I already order my trunk mounted solar panels.

Very nice!

I was wondering why you're looking for a 4G63 again

Bad. Ass.

Donor Loaner Engine is yours when/if you need it. I'll be in Carefree this weekend practicing for the Shootout the following weekend. Calendar is pretty much open otherwise if you want to roll by. (Won't fit in the back of the Juke and Vanessa wouldn't let me try if I asked nice!)

Very much appreciated. Hoping I can find one that I can just drop in and go so I can keep the engine swap to a minimum.

Hurray!!! Congrats I remember seeing 1101 several years ago in Preskit for the Rally, I remember how good it felt when 501 came back home, nowhere near the same condition it left in... Ya is pretty much the same story.

Finally got vacation and a hectic week out of the way now it'stime to focus on 1101.

Found a motor that I should be picking up next weekend. In the mean time I really want to take inventory of what I have and what I need as well as clean the car up. I plan on working from the inside out starting with the seats and carpet to get those really clean and conditioned. From there I'll move my way to the engine bay, trunk, an then to parts like the tranny, axles, etc... I forsee a lot of Simple Green, old tooth brushes, and cursing in my future.

Mate, you will need to go some. Mine is 5 years and counting.

Okay, you got me there.

For now I just want to get it up and running as a daily. My next decision is when I want to tear it all the way down and do it correctly. That project will take much longer for sure.

Got a decent amount of work done last night and today. Started by pulling the seats, then the console, and the finally the carpet. The center console was a bit of a pain in the ass but once I found the last few screws it came right out. The carpet it self was cake to pull out but was gross.

I took the carpet to a local self wash and blew through 10.00 in quarters cleaning the carpet and floor mats. I did find out why the interior smelled like oil and poop....I'm pretty sure I cleaned a quart of oil and possible some poop out of the carpet. I got most of the stains out of the carpet but will hit it with some stuff I bought called Folex. Supposedly it kicks ass so we'll see what it can do with the stains that are left.

From here I'm going to wipe all the interior sheet metal, wipe down all the interior trim pieces, dash, and condition the seats. I'm also going to try and get the rest of the stains out of the carpet once it dries. Hope fully it will get rid of the weird smell and bring back the classic GVR4 crusty leather smell.

Right after I took the seats out.


A quick vacuum and clean up.


Console out.


Carpet out.


Dirty carpet.




First round of clean up. Just a good power wash.

Great to see Michael! Making me envious, I would love another GVR4 project.

BTW you can use the Boomerang title as #86 seems to be staying put with the latest owner.

Progress looks great, Micheal!

Looks like 1101 will be returning to it's former glory.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the encouragement and am going to need it for the next step of the process. I gotta clean the engine bay, maybe do an ABS delete now that it has a 5 lug swap, and of course get a motor in it.

Dale I just might need somethings. I gotta see where the car is mechanically this week. PM me your number if you don't mind. For now I'll just take the CE28s.

Made some more progress of the last few weeks. The biggest thing is I got a motor with some help from my Son. Shorty after I got it torn down for cleaning.







I also took inventory to see what I did and didn't have. Big parts were easy the nuts and bolts will be a bit harder.





I fixed the torn CV boots and even did a writer up.

How to fix a torn CV boot



I also started cleaning the block, tranny, intake, tcase..basically anything that is really freakin' gross so I can paint them. I only got a before picture of the tranny but I'm sure everyone here has seen disgusting 4G parts.




Tonight I'll get some pics after the cleaning but before paint. I now have a dead line I have to meet so hopefully I can get it accomplished before then.

Finally after almost a week of other stuff going on I got a solid few days to work on her and made some real progress. The motor is 99% done and thanks to thedsmguy the rest of what I need is on it's way. Hopefully Thursday I will be able to put the motor and tranny back in the car because it needs to be running ASAP. We close on our house and The Boss AKA my wife has made it clear that no projects until our we are living in out house. Fair enough.

Everything that was cleaned got stored in the trunk.




The block was gross so I cleaned and painted that as well.





Timing side all cleaned up.



The exhaust studs were all different sizes and looked like crap so I got some new ones. Luckily I only had to repair one thread so that was a plus. I also got some valve cover bolts to dress it up a bit since they were only a few bucks more.







After that I started putting the motor together with all the cleaned and painted parts.





Kent kcpaz was nice enough to give me all his left over GVR4 race car parts, one of which was this very nice original valve cover. He also had an extra coil pack that I took apart and cleaned up.







Here is the motor almost done.





Last but not least the painted tranny. Not sure if I like the color but oh well.

Thank you very much. It's not the way I really wanted to do it but it works for now with my budget. Down the road it will get torn apart again for a full rebuild and instead of spray paint it will be a lot of powder coating.
