Trying to figure out what to do with the car.
Here's my post about finishing my journey and has info on some of the good parts.
Was thinking $3,000 for the car and all my spare parts if it goes whole. It's currently running and driving. Majority of the worth is in the JDM bumpers, fiberglass hood and trunk, AMG grille, 93 lights, JDM fogs
If anyone is interested in a bunch of the body parts I'd consider breaking up the car. I would rather not making the car unmoveable right now. But I'd sell whatever out of it as long as I can still drive it 500ft to get to where a trailer would have to park when the time comes to unload the chassis.
There's only a handful of people left around here from when I started but I bought this car in 2000 with about 110k on it. Ran some 12's around 2005, and it's been my daily driver for 20 god damn years.
I'm done though, it's just too old. I'm now driving a 2005 STI that makes 400whp and has 1/3rd the mileage on it, but I'm not even remotely kidding when I say my galant drives better. It's not as fast, but it DRIVES better. It shifts better, the clutch feels better, it's got a more comfortable ride...
The kicker is at 299985 the external fuse block melted down and I temporarily fixed it, 299994 miles the jackshaft bolts broke AGAIN. I just don't have it in me to drill them out again. I never could figure out why all the drivetrain bolts on this car loosen up no matter what I do. I'm constantly losing x-case bolts, transmission bolts, jackshaft bolts. I clean the threads, locktite, OEM bolts... They keep f'in falling out.
Whatever, I'll miss this car dearly. Anyone need a running and driving parts car? I would have said I'd drive it 500 miles anywhere but I really don't want to fix the jackshaft bolts again. It drives around fine if you take it easy but I'm not going long distance with the jackshaft loose.
There's a lot of good mediocre parts on this car.
jdm front and back bumpers with all OEM supports, uncracked JDM facelift fogs, I even have a new end cap in a sealed mitsu parts bag. 93 headlights (one cracked a bit), australian turn signals, and what might be the only real AMG grill in the US? Fiberglass trunk, fiberglass hood (carbon look, badly faded)
trashed EVO 8 seats
EVO MR inverted bilstein struts on tein springs (rides AWESOME)
working real WQNK transmission with 4 spide rdiff and with VCU EVO 1 rear end gears (best mod I've ever done, makes the car feel and drive amazing) and complete spare trans, AND a complete set of internals for a 3rd set.
FMIC, 14b that's pissing oil, 3" exhaust, 2g maf, ECU with keydiver chip and 510 injectors, supra fuel pump
5 lug swap with fwd knuckles for best rack alignment, prothane bushings everywhere (mostly shot)
Rusty chassis, all the sound deadning is removed, seam welded in a lot of places, sunroof removed and glass sealed in place. windshield leaks in the rain
saturn alternator (2nd best mod ever)
no a/c, no abs, no rear wheel steering
manual belts from a 1989
glovebox and under wheel panel from an 1989
About a billion little mods to make the car better, way too many to list out.
Everything is old and worn, and now so am I.
