Sounds great about meeting up. I believe there a few other vr4 in the Orlando area. Maybe we can do a meet or something.

Small update:

Finished painting the hubs and block. Also ordered new front bearings and seal, because one of the bearings doesn't spin as free as the other.

I would like to also thank my brother for all his help. Wouldn't have been able to do this with out him. His project car is next

Here's some updates from today.

Installed the new transmisson mount (What a pain in the A--). I guess the last owner had some transmisson work done. Because one of the bolts on the transmision was stipped. The impact almost didn't get it out. So had to retap the thread. Also got the new oil pan in and installed that.

Out with the old.




In with the new.


Oil pan





Tomorrow I am hoping to get the coilovers and the lower control arms installed.

We are taking a break from working on the car today. Thought I would update the thread while I cool down. I think I lost 10lbs today. So hot in Florida.

Bumber and fenders back on. Installed the front suspension and brakes.

Started her up today. Almost a year since it ran. Took alittle bit for the idle to come down, but she purs great. Just got to bleed the rear power steering and get the car aligned. The exhaust sounds really good. Got to detail the whole car. I would say an inch of dust ;(
