Price-3700 with spare DIC,cps, o2 sensor and still need to pick up spare black hood someway

Should be fun!!!!

Very jealous. Found a 99' LB vig for sale nearby with high miles and low price tag. I might be joining the club soon.

High miles means you just gotta do the usual 900/9-3 stuff anyways. Bushings, bearings, ball joints, ect.

I've always wanted to do the short shifter but I heard its a pain in the ass because you need to get a new shift knob. This True?

Pretty sure you can reuse your old one if you can get it off in one piece

Got this trick from someone here I think: Put one foot on either side of the console. Put in 4th gear. Grip shifter under reverse lock. Pull hard. The whole unit comes off, boot, tube, and knob. You can then easily remove the knob by unclipping the three white nylon clips that hold it to the tube.

Looks great! How much for the hood job?

That leather gaiter is so much better than the original brushes I need to get one too, how much was that?
