    Background:
    Got this car cheap, needs a new rag top. Bought with a bad turbo, damage exceeded what could be rebuilt and maintain any reliability. I had it running after the basic tune up (top end) and then it sat... and sat... and sat... I was busy, what can I say?

    So I will be pulling the motor out soon and doing an extensive tear down and rebuild. This will take some time and quite a bit of coin but it is my toy and not a daily so this doesn’t bother me.

    I’m not looking to build a bat out of hell, I just want something fun to cruise around in on the weekends and tinker with in my free time.

    Disclaimer: photos are from when I bought the car. It presently has a heavy layer of dust that has collected.
