wow you only have 1 park and one wall? i struggle with 2 empty parks and 2 walls. were renovating our house soon and the old man said he would build a new garage also. there should be enough room for 2 cars and a couch and tv and stuff and we might be able to have a pit or car crane. so excited

So i have heard. but like people say "your gonna love the difference between the 202 and the 3.8" so there is no relativity for me.

not sure man. the engine bay is still empty, like nothing. so i still have to do like wiring, water tank, radiator, charcol canistor, horn, battery etc etc and then after i have done all that the engine goes in. then take it to get an exhaust, then roadworthy. it could be a few weeks, it could be a few months.

to get the wagon diff in the sedan i just popped out the ring in the sedan shock bush and slipped it over the wagon bolt. and to get the sedan diff into the wagon im having a guy come out to get that verticle bracket off and turn it 45% so i can chuck the sedan bolt and nut through still.
