Default RWheadon's 1995 Blk/Blk GS

SR5Guy called me aside at NALM 2013 and said something like... "Rich... Finish a project, you have way to many going on at the same time". (I cleaned up the language a little) I've realized it's true for a long time and just never have been able to get anything to finished. I keep busy, but never get to finished. Well I think that's changed.

In august of last year I bought a 1995 Blk/Blk GS with < 180K on the odo. The body is straight, the paint is good and the interior is nice. The car was smoking like crazy and had no A/C coming home. Living The Dream drove it home and we started tinkering on the old bird. A year later the car is done and will serve as driver for my wife and daughter for now. They aren't really crazy about the "little" car since they are used to an Odyssey but life goes on.

The hit list:
* Valve Stem Seals (Basically top end reseal)
* Intake overhaul (includes EGR)
* Power steering rack (OEM reman)
* Rear Main
* Torque Converter
* Trans filter/flush
* Timing Belt/Water pump
* Oil cooler reseal
* Brakes
* Heater/AC blower
* 4 new tires
* Bose 2100 Replaced

Of course nothing is ever really done with our cars and I have a couple maintenance items left to do, but here's a teaser shot of the "finished" product with siblings. I'll take some better pics when the rain stops and I can wash her off.


* Your smoking 3.2 engine is probably ok... replace your valve guide seals before condemning it!
