Before and After Pictures: 1985 Wagon(dialup warning)
Posted 27 April 2004 - 09:41 PM
A couple pictures after a few days of working on it.
I've also done the exhaust with 2" from the heads to the catalytic converter and 2 1/4" out the back with a low flow muffler. 88 Turbo discs in the rear with 88 turbo rear springs and shocks. I have all of the trim pieces with exception of the passengers front door. (anyone?)
Hoping this car will be a good replacement for the 85 Hatch.
Going to mount a rear swaybar this weekend off of an 87 RX. Have the tubing for fabrication of the bumpers and the roof rack laying in the shop. Now if I could just find some time.
Comments, good or bad, are welcome.

Being that dirty and mossy...Taking that much carnage and bad weather....Check out those mudflaps....Dang those things still look nice.
How much did you pic that up for?

This is the LOW BUCK mobile. I'm hoping to not spend but the bare minimum to get it up to snuff.
So far I've put about 40.00 into it for wires and plugs and tune-up parts.( NGK, Refuse to scrimp there)
Most of the big parts, tires and wheels, Weber, and Blaster coil, I robbed from the hatch that I was
autocrossing and Rallycrossing in the past. The brakes, springs and shocks are from a turbo wagon
I have for a parts car.
I was pleasantly surprised that it cleaned up as nice as it did. Thought about
stripping the trim, but I believe the front fenders use clips to hold the trim on,
so there would be holes in the front fenders.
Looking at keeping the center of gravity LOW right now. Don't do any off roading but lots of gravel,
fire road and dirt road thrashing so a lift is not in the immediate future. They do look good lifted with
27's on them though.
Maybe later on.
Thanks for the comments,
BTW, If anyone is looking for a 85 Hatch with 196K, rear 20mm swaybar, disc brakes, XT seats,
small deer dent on LF and a bit of rust, I've got one that needs a carb (Weber adapter still on it)
to drive anywhere. 375.00
