Tow dolly was no fun. Only flipped off and pulled over once in a 150 mile journey.

Everything but motor/paint appears in good shape. Oil is dirty but no sign of anti-freeze. Put a battery in and get a constant clicking in trunk module. Nothing with key to start. CE lights so pull codes and get started sorting this out.

Good looking project. Little bit of surface corrosion going on but otherwise looks like a solid keeper. Best of luck with this. Are you taking pics as your progress?

Thanks. I take tons of photo's and still have issues getting bits back in one piece :-).

Nice steady rain so the 95 had its first bath in a very long time. Dawn soap this time. Was under an elm tree. A few more washes needed before clay bar. No dents or rust. Scratches and paint loss in spots. Hope just touch up will do for now.

Will need to spin up the Singer sewing machine on the seats. Everything is pretty dry so just good patterns at this point. Don't think the spare tire has ever been unpacked. Still nibs on the tire.

No sign of leaking sun roof or trunk seals. Looks complete set of owners docs in the glove box.

Title office in the AM. Hope they are in a good mood.

Going to be fun.

Will be watching your seat repair with earnest.

Looks like a solid car.

Thanks all !!
A day of great joy.
No drama at title office. New one issued. Needs emissions cert for tags but no required timeline on that.
Poked the camera under body for a few shots. Ice age receding here. Can't wait to get going in earnest. Not a drop of coolant in the car.
Keycode will get you nowhere at this point :-) All systems serious dead.
Stay tuned.

At least it's not a rust bucket.
