And the adventure begins.actually got to drive the car for the first time since I've owned it. wheeee, I got some work ahead of me!
first thing was the coolant flush as I suspected it wouldn't make it 13 miles to my friends property: so I drive it 2.5 miles to the shop where they commence to get the green stuff trickling out. not good enough, so he's getting in there with the screwdriver and it finally comes gushing out green, then shortly thereafter turns brown. (he did say he smelt rust after opening the radiator cap). and the temp sensor/gauge is definitely not working.
then the drive to the friends property with him following and observing (just in case); definitely no faster than 50mph. on the way over I discovered that the steering is really vague, the seats have no support above the shoulder blades for a tall person like me, the seatbelt doesn't latch, and the carburetor was fine for the most part except for a couple of "almost die sputtering" at lights.
so far on the replacement list is temp sensor, radiator, seatbelt, seats, carb. plus it will need a really good block cleaning to make sure the coolant passages are clear.
things I will definitely be pulling and selling are the trim and 60/40 seats, and the front clip and doors after completing the front clip swap
