I'm still here, giving you a follow!
Sweet havent had any chance to make any progress yet. Did however drop the head off to my buddy Brian the block and crank are at his place were gonna assemble it there. I dont have any space in my garage due to my workshop taking up all the space my car isn't. Haha

Not actual progress on the build but I did however score a deal on a Complete set of AWR 95Duro mounts and AWR Trailing arms. So pretty stoked about that, trying to get my hands on a set of used coils for a decent price. But looks like ill have to drop the $$$ on a new set of coils. I really dont want to spend the money on a set of struts and springs

Yeah I know but for the price I couldnt pass them up, got both the trailing arms and the the set of mounts for $280 shipped. Eventually Im going to boost my P5 so when I do I'm going to pull the 70Duro mounts in the wagon and swap them to the sedan then install the 95 duro's in the wagon. The trailing arms are going into the sedan and in the wagon I have a set of the AAC adjustable link kit which will go in the wagon.

I know i know 😌 still no progress on revival of the sleeping beauty. But I however do have some pics I can share with the class of the Protege's younger brother if you would like to see them. A few glamor shots and some before and after.

Also who remembers the KMR BG about 10yrs ago. Yeah that long ago well I finally installed the lower tie bar but after looking at it. Think its going to be problematic with being so low. Im sure it'll rip right off on a good bump. But for now well see how it goes.

So my question to yall is do I start another build thread for my p5 or just tag onto this one 🤔 let me know what yall think.

Start a separate build thread. At some point, your updates will most likely confuse you as they run together. It'll surely confuse me lol. Looks good btw!

Yeah I was leaning that way considering I've done more mods to the P5 than the sedan anyways...

How's this car doing? I'm gonna use a lot of the same parts tbh.
sorry for the late reply haven't had any progress yet but yesterday I received the engine rebuild kit just need a water and oil pump timing belt and a few other items then its install time. I can't wait to turn the key on this car and hear it run again cant believe its been 10yrs. I see people all the time oh im gonna build this im gonna build that but never do. I felt I was going to go down that path as well but I've been fortunate enough to evade my wifes attempts at getting rid of her. So I have to make sure I see this through and finish the build.
