Well besides my thread in the offroad section I have yet to do a proper build thread and figured now is the time. 

 

As I received it. Needed a fuel pump, headlight assemblies, grill.
Removed all emissions equipment. Had actually not been registered since
1997. Had 82,000 miles on it.

 

Also want to thank Jeff (oneeye) and Rick and anyone else who has helped me not only work on my car but who have taught me a whole lot.

No good build pictures but this is after receiving the 2" lift and 27x8.5x14 Wildcats and Drilled Wheels.

...No they did not.  They wont even touch a car that is six lug swapped or drilled.  If you are looking for wheels your only option is Peugeot 14 or 15" wheels in 4x140mm, but they are pretty rare these days.  Or you can drill a set of 6 lug wheels.
