another 99T rides again!!!

This weekend Mike and I made it a point to get his 99T running, being we were having so much fun with GA's car. After figuring out why the fuel pressure was too high a 5 min fix with a drill bit (return fuel line was plugged)and the car is running and driving. I will have Mike post some pictures of his newest ride today. The car is in vert good shape rust wise. It will need a rack though as the inner bushing is gone.

Here are some pics of the Turbo, make sure to notice him washing a car. It's not very often you can catch him washing one.

The car was originaly dark gray metalic. Someone did a fairly nice respray a long time ago. Mikey is happier than a pig in shit right now that it runs.

Now only if he could get the damn thing waxed. I try to motivate him by only doing half of the work and letting him finish the rest haha.

It's amazing how well it drives with the worn out rack in it.

It runs great now. Went through and patched in the shrunk up window seals/hatch seal. Put on the ol' Mini-lites I found a while ago and Rob and I just got done getting all the lites working.

A few major things are left like the rack need's to be replaced/rebuilt, go through my parts to put the under dash panels back together, and mount the extra center console I have in there.

More pics will come once there is a good wax and interior clean done on it.

Edit: Yeah she sits pretty tall and there is TONS of body roll to her. Maybe at some point down the road there will be some lowering action done.

So it needs a rack, eh? Well that's not good! There was a group buy for the typical 99 failure rack bits over on saabrally.com, through unfortunately I don't think you would be able to get in at this point. I'm sure you will probably be able to find at least 1 good used one in you guys parts stash, but simply rebuilding a 99 manual rack is basically an impossibility The parts that break have been NLA since the mid 80's...

It drove decent years ago when we did a headgsket and other stuff. It got parked for some reason and just sat for years.

Nice to see it is in a good home..

Looks nice wet, like my wagon Would be cool if it was original grey but hey.. the price was right huh mike

Oh yes the price was perfect.

Well I got more pics taken of the car. No waxing was done though. Damn thing waxes like I'm dragging an eraser across the it but it is working at the expense of my arm.







And a shot of the inside with the kick panels replaced and what I was told was another 99 center console when I got it shipped from over seas but it is no where near meant for a 99.
