Its been lowering the property values on my block since I moved in. My brother bought a parts car as his wagon was less than perfect up front. Ive stripped the front clip off of both the wagon and the 244.

Im swapping bits of the 244 onto the 242 to repair the harness that was destroyed by Audio Express in 1996. Its also donating some fuel system components, along with the stuff I got from minusdarkslide, it should be running in the next few weeks.

That's a healthy list! What tires are you going to use? My Epsilons are the same size and the Dunlop ZII star specs seem like the best option in the sizes I want to run (205/50 and 225/45)
