    Just picked up my Talon TSI, found one near me that runs and drives great, just needs love and TLC and someone to fix her up!

    This is gonna be a slow build, and I gotta un Frankenstein the wire harness that previous owner "modded" for the crappy alarm system, neon, and amp crap haha. Will post pics of progress while I work on her, but meanwhile here she is!

    AND, as you can see, a side window will be one of the first to fix... :)

    Welcome! Should be fun. Is that a fiberglass hood or carbon fiber painted black? There is a DSM meet every other Saturday night (one coming up on the 13th) at Broadway's on Baymeadows and 9A.

    Thank ya! It's a fiberglass, previous owners did a butcher job on quite a few things on this car including the hood, so I got some repair work to on it. Definitely got my work cut out for me, but it's gonna be an amazing machine when I'm finally through with it :D I won't make it this meet, but my girlfriend are definitely gonna start making appearances! :)

    I would have loved my mustang, if it had been 5.0 and 5 speed. But I found my talon and it was well worth the trade! Lol

    I've got a couple buddies with paint booths at their shops, but my girlfriend and I will be doing all the work ourselves. (Got lucky and found a woman who likes cars as much as I do!) :D haha

    Plan on it! Lol



    Lol! Nice bro, I struck gold with this one. Even though my talon needs work she absolutely loves it. The only condition she gave me for me trading the mustang was to teach her how to drive a 5 speed! Lol I even get sammiches if I ask for them :)

    The guy screwed up with signing over the title and signed as purchaser, (never titled it in his name) and the DMV won't let me get it in my name. It was a careless mistake on my part... But I got a few numbers for the original owner, so I'm gonna call him and ask him for his help so everything should end up alright.
    On another note, got a lot of work done today with the wiring and CORRECTLY Plummed the turbo vacuums and completely eliminated the parasitic drain, so it was a rather productive day. 2 hours worth of cutting and hunting wires and this is what I ended up with! Lol

    If you can get the original owner and the guy you bought it off of to sign a notarized letter then the DMV should let you go ahead and register the vehicle
