I finally bit the bullet and started on the awd swap. So far I got the gas tank and rear suspension out, I also got all the gas tank mounts and suspension mounts cut out. I got the mach up motor and trans in with new polyurethane mounts. I plan on putting in a fuel cell and redoing the whole fuel system. I'm also upgrading to a 50 trim I got off my buddy's evo.

:lol: And then sell it on craigslist as the colt trailer special. In a few years, people may start to notice plenty of these end up on craigslist.

^^^We made a pig cooker out of the rear axle from the 94 Laser that I stripped for my swap.


Awesome car BTW. I love the satin black.

I have been slacking on posting updates. First off I would like to thank Matt L. and Wheatley for helping me out so much on this project, they have been a huge help the past couple weeks.

So I'm going to have to go back a week. Matt L. got my spare tire well torched out along with the rest of the mounts. After that I started on grinding everything down and almost got my head taken off buy a broken grinding pad.

Last Saturday I finished up the grinding and we grabbed a lift jack from the other shop so we could start on mounting the rear end. After about four hours of moving, measuring and cussing we got the the rear sub frame where we wanted it. Once we got that done we got the bars measured, cut and positioned. Wheatley put some tack welds on and we marked holes for the bolts for the sub frame. We dropped the sub frame and Wheatley welded in the bars the rest of the way. At that point is was about 2:30am and I called it a night.

Today Wheatley and I got all the holes drilled out for the sub frame bolts and we had to go pick up some more hardware at tractor supply so we could mount up the sub frame. Wheatley and got back with the new hardware and Matt L., Wheatley and I got the sub frame on the jack and bolted up. Now I just need to find a few bolts for the rear shocks and get my eclipse wheels over to the shop to drop it on the ground.

Just wondering how many of your friends told you not to do it? Curious thats all, at least two of mine told me and a few coworkers too, they all thought I would never get done. But its been done for a few years now with no driveline issues.

Not many, a few guys (non-dsmer's) have told to stick will fwd because it more consistent at the track. Most of my close friends have been wanting me to do this for a while.
