Post Mx3Baker - 1993 Mx-3 GS
OK so im starting my worklog Let me get you up to date. I have done a few things before that i will just not talk about. If your that curious lets just say it was all bought on Ebay (adjustable coilovers, exhaust) i made mistakes but thats over now i will change it all out soon. I drove my car to wyoming from missouri i was going to go to wyotech for autobody and interiors but i blew my ATX and i only had 3rd gear for about 2 hours of the way. So i got it trailered back and it sit since january 1 till today. While it was sitting someone broke my window and stole my cd player and 10 disk changer also over 150 cds. Now that you are somewhat up to date well get started.

Post Window replacement
This morning i am going to change my window out before i had them all tinted so i tinted this window when i got it and its all ready to go in after i get my window in i am going to start my car for the first time in a few months. That will suck and be depressing i already know. Im going to take the fuel fuse out and crank on it for a min. to get fluids running again just so i dont have a dry start.

Later today my car will get started on with my MTX swap. I got all my parts from the junk yard like the pedal assembly and tranny out of a 92 GS. i have all the linkage and all. I will order my clutch and flywheel and i guess whatever else sounds good at the moment. Ill have pictures and updates later on i just need to get working on it. :D
