Picking her up yesterday with my Fiancee who bought the car for me and my soon to be Father-in-law who took the picture for us. We made good time there and back only 4 hours round trip, The only problems we had were getting the car started after
it had been sitting in his driveway for 3 years not running, but we did get it running, and then the fact that the engine would lose power and stall everytime we started getting it up the ramps for the trailer.
Now that she is home I have a few minor repair jobs to do on her then she should be running pretty good.
>Replace the valve cover seals
>check spark plugs and regap them
>check brake pads, discs, drums and shocks
>remove and clean the fuel filter (its an after market one thats supposedly reusable, and prolly need the filter itself changed)
>check for a possible radiator hose leak
>replace the valve stem on the rear driver tire
>replace the vacuum line
>have the engine mounts checked they may be bad
>A ton of body work mostly on the driver side
There is also some minor repair work on the interior I need to do, what is everyones views on the seat, re upholstering them vs just buying new ones? mine are pretty torn up.
