Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself! I've been lurking in the background checking out different posts here and figured its about time I joined.
I come from the Nissan world. I've built 3+ 240/silvias in the past. Sold them, travelled the world, came home (Canada), got into skydiving, built out a 2015 Ram Promaster 2500 camper conversion and then Covid hit, so I stopped van life, moved into a house and picked up a 1991 Eagle 2000 GTX as my new daily. I was sold on the AWD, and because I had a 1991 Eagle Vista when I turned 16. I just couldnt pass on matching my birth year and make again, its the little things right? Anyway I'm a licenses red seal Heavy Duty mechanic with a background in oilfield. I'm no stranger to pulling wrenches and building fun cars. Looks like there's quite a lot of character on the forum so I'm happy to be here and looking forward to talking with you all.
Anyway, I'll get around to posting some photos when I'm back to my desktop in a couple weeks.
I'm hoping to get this thing tuned up for now and eventually turbo it. Long game would be to have an AWD setup and a RWD setup to drift it (I miss my Silvia, okay!).
I've got tons of research to do to understand the ins and outs of this thing but I'm loving it so far. I was about to pull the windshield out and do some rust repair on the A pillars and roof where it meets the windshield, I called my trusty supplier and it turns out they can't get a windshield for it anywhere in Canada and gave me a big ole maybe from the USA.
My biggest question to you guys today: cross over parts!!??
Its near impossible to find any useful parts results when searching. Looking for input on a Mitsubishi Galant crossover? Model, trims, etc. From what I've gathered so far, I'm safe to assume this is a 1st gen - when refering to crossover parts with the DSM world?
Any help is appreciated!
