Good morning. Thanks allowing me to join the forum.

My name is Matt, I'm 39, I've got 6 children, a one of a kind woman who is the one person who I let drive my vehicles.

I have a few projects ongoing at the current point in time:
1. Finishing up the motor swap in my Mitsubishi Galant VR4.
2. I just bought a 92 Plymouth Colt (possible bad ecu) that I have not yet seen since the day Ihu bought it.
3. I have a 90, I think, Dodge Colt that is running, it has no title. I hope to make one daily driver out of both of these cars... within 60 days.
Right now I have more projects that are ongoing and I am not progressing like I should be, thus the subject line of the thread.
I'm sorry, I have no pictures to post at this time, I'll do my best to make posting some a priority.
Also, I will try and make posting about the projects I do a more recurring activity than I've done with my past projects, if for no other reason than to have a record for me to refer to in the future.
Well that's a good start I suppose.
It's nice to meet you all, and I hope that we can shake hands one day.

So, the 92 is running. It took a new capacitor soldered into the ECU, a new fuel pump, the spark plugs cables to be plugged into their correct positions in the distributor, a how clamp on the intake plumbing directly before the TB, a battery, donor steering column with an ignition switch that I had a key for, fresh gasoline, and a few nights of work after my paying one to get it up and running. It is a little bit rough but it is running and clearing up as more quality fuel is cycled through. Below is the first surprise for me with this car...a broken spring; front driver side. Anybody know a source for a new one? eBay and Rock Auto were not returning any results. Picture of the spring are attached.Image

Thanks, I'll be sure to check out the FB group. I found another colt and bought it so I have the spring now. I'm parting out the 89. Info on that is in the for sale section.
