    My wife and I watched this vid today on YouTube, she asked me why someone would drive 6 hours one way to buy a car... I chose to ignore the question and continue watching that road trip. Needless to say, I'm very jealous! That's a hell of a find!

    I've been watching your videos on Youtube for years. Many thanks for the great content!
    I am glad that you now have a 2G Talon. Hope the 1G will stay with you.

    In your to-do list, "34 Outlander Big Brakes" and "41 Outlander Big Brakes Upgrade" are doubled.

    Keep us posted on how the little bug's progress is.

    No updates, it's basically been sitting in my back yard all winter. I'm trying hard to find time but having a baby really eats up 90 percent of my time. Just adding a pic to keep this thread updated.

    Looks to be a nice resto, just picked up a 2ga Talon myself. It will be the clean fun daily. Also great videos keep up the good work, always enjoy watching them.

    I've been slowly collecting parts for the restore. I found a pair of MINT fog lights to replace my broke one on facebook marketplace. I was soooooo stoked to find these!

    You can see the broken fog light / lamp on the passenger side, and the cracked bumper on the drivers side.

    Collecting more parts. I found some OEM Talon center caps from a 1g at the junkyard. Which is awesome because as you can see from the previous pics the rear drivers side is missing on my Talon.
