    Finally Joined

    Hello everyone. I have been apart of TCCoA for a while but now that my SC is in working order I joined this forum as well. I have a 1989 SC 5 speed, original performance white car with grey cloth interior, pretty standard.

    But My SCs journey started in June when I bought it. The car had a broken HB, was completely rotted out, the suspension was shot, and had countless electrical issues. Instead of using it for my original purpose, just for parts, I decided to save it.

    I started with the engine. I tore it down to replace the HB and other pieces that were damaged. And of course normal tune up pieces; plugs, wires, oil pump, water pump, injectors, vacuum lines, ect.

    After that, I move to the body. The floor pans, rockers, fire wall, front shock towers, and rear shock towers were rusting away. I saved what I could but for everything else, some flat steel with a bit of massaging fixed the rest. A few pieces I was able to get from a friend, MadMikeyL on TCCoA. This included seat supports, windows, trim pieces, and a set of SC shocks.

    After that it was pretty straight forward. Rebuilt the suspesnion with NOS sport shocks and 3/4 drop vogtlands because both sets of SC shocks I had were bad, did some bondo work, and painted it in my garage. Probably not the best job, but Im happy to have saved the car from the crusher.
    Also, the black wheels were originally bought for my 96. But since the SC wheels had bad tires I swapped them so I could drive it. And the dealer in the pictures is the same one that sold it and 1989.

    I just took these. I know I should take pictures of the progress, but I always forget to once I get going lol. I never put carpet in the car, I saved it on a tight budget so I never got a new one. I do need to get some floor mats at least. And thats just dirt in the picture. I fixed this car to be my new daily because I have plans for my 96.
