    Unfortunately the new CB decided to loose compression on cylinders 2 & 3, and I haven't found the space to complete the swap (nor the money tree) so for now, I'm parting/junking/selling both cars and pulling out of the CB game. I will DEFINITELY be back with a force on my next one, but for the time being, while I'm in school, trying to get married, and start my career, this will have to be. It really hurts that I spent all that time and ended up at this point, but what's my loss is your gain. Send me a PM if your interested in anything from either of my MRTs.

    Sorry I have been gone, but it's a bit busy with full time school and full time work. I should have some new pics posted up later today or this weekend of the progress of both cars and I finally found a place to do the swap, so I'll have that done pretty soon. But I added a poll to see what color I shouldmaybe look into painting the car. I'm open to all suggestions. I really want to do a flat/satin color with this one. I really don't know why but I think it would look pretty awesome

    It's a shame you're getting rid of the old one, she really doesn't look that damaged. Had a similar accident myself. A JY run, a ratchet cable and a tree fixed her up.

    I guess you'll just be picking up on the coupe where you left off with the sedan?

    I know it doesn't look that bad, but it bent the alignment of the frame, the entire drivers side spindle assembly is pushed back about 2 inches and it would cost at least $3,000 to fix everything. So yeah, I'm going to keep on with the build with the coupe

    So I started stripping th LX today. I swapped over the wheels, pulled out the head unit, center console, and shift assembly (all in 108 degree heat) and as soon as I pull the motor for the window out and replace the worn out one, then I'll install everything in the EX
