I am getting rid of it because I really needed a back seat for a car seat. I can't do tranny work myself. Would be nice to fix and sell as whole, but it may be more valuable this way. The right side got sideswiped while it was parked and that's also too expensive to fix I think, it's pretty gnarly.

Also I may be missing some of the fasteners for the rear wheel skirts. Please pm me for details, thanks for the replies!

Thanks Mak, pictures attached in last post :). It looks like someone took a can opener through the door twice, metal is all warped from the cut

How many miles? I've been looking for a shell for a K24 swap but not sure of the cost to repair the passenger side. A new door plus body repair fore and aft for starters.

It's got 230k, so you can assume if you want a body this is probably not what ur looking for, faded paint on hood and on roof. Carpet is in fair shape at best. However carpet in the rear compartment area is in good shape. Glue has come loose on carpet on hidden compartment in rear.

Thanks for the info on synchros, I found the price you posted to be accurate. I also don't believe any tranny work to be "easy."

You don't replace the synchros. You just grind the little tabs off of them.

Maybe if I could just grind them real good when I am downshifting, that would be an easy fix :) . Thanks Sam I hope you get my harmless humor here, I just haven't worked on a trans before and I would rather not immobilize the car.

Just updating the thread I posted. Parts are still available. I have a whole car here minus a good trans. 200k miles. Passenger side body not in great shape. Pm me for parts request. Batt also still available, for better price contact me directly.

Parting mine to keep yours alive! I want to do this in the most environment friendly way possible. Re-use then recycle.

Thanks!

Oil pan

Stripped out the drain plug. .. Looking for an oil pan and was wondering if you still had yours and if so how much would you be willing to sell it for.
