I feel more and more confident to tackle the rust issues so i started removing some bad pieces around the shock mounting point in the passenger wheel well:

First the outline.



Then i started to remove metal:




The wheel well is spot welded to the bracket which holds the shock mount. If you look closely you can see 3 spotwelds.



I was lucky: only the wheel well material was seriously rusted. The bracket is of course made of thicker steel.



Next is welding in new piece of steel....

It's been a while. I've been busy working mainly. recently I picked up the work on he GT. I've been welding the passenger wheel well. of course there was more rust than anticipated. So this is what I did:

I made sheet metal to fit and welded it in.


Then I started cutting here:
BTW I didn't use the repair piece in the picture. I only used a prefab bottom piece:






Fabrication of the side piece




Welding in the side piece:




I feel confident with the welder right now, so i'll work my way through the rust...

I also bought these:

a short shifter


and a new family member:
A '83 SAAB 99 with a 16v NA(!) engine:

It has been nearly a year since the last post, i've been busy with other stuff. Recently i picket up work on the GT again! I only need to weld one spot in the trunk than the welding is done.. Man... if you keep looking for rust you'll keep finding rust.. Nothing too dramatic though.
I also started cleaning the underside. I really look forward to assembling now!

Welding the floor









Wheelarches:





Under the car & engine compartment







And i got a FMIC. It's a Yonaka type 6 and the story goes that it fits in the C900...We'll see.

It's tight, but it'll fit.

Do some searches on the Yonaka install here and saab central to guide you.

For your reducer hoses from the inter-cooler, check out intakehoses.com. I buttoned up my Yonaka FMIC and used the Silicone Reducing Elbow 90 Degree 2.5" to 2" and the 2.5" to 2.25", the leg length on these were perfect. Any of the other ones I found were too short to get around the radiator support.

Intake Hoses, IntakeTubing, and Intake Clamps - Intakehoses.com Silicone Reducing Elbow 90 Degree 2.5" to 2" ID Gloss Black

Also get the t-clamps in the various sizes you'll need. I didn't need to bead any of the tubing and they are holding tight at 20lbs. of boost.

Torsten,
just saw the 99 - why on earth someone would swap in the b202 and convert it to run with the carburetor???
I think it's easier to leave the fuel injection, even if You have to use custom fuel pump outside the tank, which is the only drawback in the 99.
It's like - power and fuel economy when compared with carburetor

When i bought the car, it ran on liquid propane gas. The carb was used as throttlebody only... Probably because the inletflange for the lpg fitted only on the carb..
For cars older than 25 years this was the cheapest way to drive. Tax regulations changed and now it's less expensive to run on petrol..
It was an interesting combination.. About 100 hp on the crank.

Currently it has lh 2.4.2 installed. Fuelpump is in the engine bay!
Ill post pictures ��
