Yeah, not far at all. Most of my stuff is online for school though. I tried to find your number awhile ago and couldn't but mine is 430-1407. Bellevue sounds nice (to many po-po's in the city for me, mr2=tickets for me), I am now up 24 in the Jeolton area. Bought it and my water heater didn't want to keep working (electrician mislabeled the breakers), worse news is it made me miss the last meet. Anyways after I get some new plugs for the 2, I will be over. Not too sure what kind of plugs to go with???

Let me know if you need to replace any of your fender or quarter trim, I am getting ready to put on my N2 fender flares and I'm going to cut my fenders out,
I pulled the AC, cruise, and power steering out and have those parts around if you need any..
You get a coupe or a hatch? I got an 86 Hatch..

it's a coupe, i need to replace the driver's side front fender, it's purty trashed. what are air con, cruise, and power steering used for? :)

spent the morning working on it, the the timing belt was off by like 3 teeth, and i think the distro is off, b/c it is still backfiring out of the intake a little, with no power. my timing light is f-ed, so i'm waiting on a buddy to bring his over now.

i don't know what was done to it before i bought it, the guy said the t-belt broke on it, so her put a new one on, but the distro looks brand new, and i'm thinking that it's got to be off 180, or close, b/c it will run, kind of, oh well, finally got my money for the old suspension i had on the audi, so now i can spend more money on the 86. going to try and work on it more this weekend, probly before the superbowl or something. idk, at some point this weekend though.
