got a new car to hack up its just like my 88 EA82 White Walker Wheeler, I like the wheeler it does awesome for what is is but I miss my old car, after looking at a few old pics of when I first built it 3 years ago and what it was like then I decided to build up a new one but a little bigger, the wheeler has a 3-1/2" lift and the new car will get a 6" the old one has 27" tires new one will get 30" old has a Carbed EJ 2.2 new gets the Ej 2.2 with Fuel injection, I miss the rear hatch and room in the back, this one will be my daily driver and light wheelin, no dents, the cars in decent shape, same white with blue/grey interior, electric windows, has blown heads ,its complete and ready for some mods, this one Im going to keep the body stock and just do a little trimming for the tires, heres a few pics

Sounds like a good plan Scott, it's always nice to start with a clean straight body, but once that lift gets put on you start getting crazy ideas, that's why i"ll never lift the touring wagon......Sweet score though Scott can't wait to see the final product!!

Now that's a rake! Mine wasn't as bad with the 13's and 4" lift, but at least you won't be driving it to work. :lol:
I like that rig you used, instead of having to spot weld it up on the car!

actually when i did my EJ22 swap having the car with the 2inch lift and 27's made it ALOT easier because then i didn't have to jack up the car to remove the exhaust or anything like that just crawl under.


lookin good scott
