Got this little beast from my wifes parents. They've had it as the daily beater for years. Sad part of it all is they run a goat farm and this little car saw at least 30 miles of dirt and gravel roads a day.....every day....for close to 12 years. Im bringing it back to its cleaner, asphault loving, auto-crossable glory piece by piece!

The day I drove it 567 miles home from their house.





Clean clean clean!




Left side has been wiped down, right side untouched.



Tail lights were filled with mud/dirt on the inside and hazed over on the outside. Hit em wityh the waterhose inside and headlight restore kit on the outside......

New Rear Trailing Arm Bushings, Coilovers, and brakes on all 4 corners.











And finally after owning the car for a mere 16 days......



Next up are all the front end bushings and new shocks all the way around.

Thanks all. I have more pictures of the cleanup on my phone. Once I get them uploaded to photobucket I'll show them as well. The engine was the worst part honestly. A power washer helped that but when I do any kind of work on it requiring me to get down deep in the engine bay Ill have my cleaning tools ready as well.

The size of the threaded part and the hex head make all the difference. You can apply so much torque to it!!
