    White the f*ck

    So.....long story short, I bought a wagon off a fellow PNW owner. Steve posted his wagon for sale on the forum and I have always wanted a third gen wagon. Wife and I rolled over to his place and bought it off him. The wagon is pretty dang clean and well maintained. Steve did a great job starting her and I plan on doing her right. First I'll start off with a couple of photos I jacked from Steve.





    I'll take some more photos that better showcase how clean the interior is. Did a few minor upgrades to the car once I bought it. Needed a new ignition switch. Every time you turned the key on it would pop the number 4 fuse, causing the vehicle not to charge. Few tests later and we found the issue.

    Also replaced the tires, 185/60/14 junk rollers for now. I've got an order in with my work for some 165/65/14's.



    Also fixed the front swaybar link pins, they were rattling all about.



    Finally had a reason to finish up this little gem.







    Dont mind the junk iPhone photos. I'll get a better one with the real camera on my day off.

    Also upgraded the door speakers.



    Should be doing more work on wednesday, my one day off. I'll keep ya'll updated!

    Nothing super crazy. Mostly just OEM plus. I'll run the stock motor until it dies. Looking for some wheels....interior upgrades....fix up the suspension a bit.

    I'm torn between which I like better. The third gens just have so much swagger and character.

    I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for you.

    Began rolling the fenders. Only got the right front done. Thanks to Chulki for letting me get at his roller.



    Also got my new head unit installed and squared away. Gotta have that bluetooth connection. I hate wires.



    Lastly, made a trip to The Home Depot. Needed some MDF to start building my small sub boxes. Who needs a truck when you have a wagon? Use them roof racks boys!



    Now to start cutting and building.

    New struts showed up today. Now to fix how the rear end is lowered. It has coil over sleeves in the back but I'm pretty sure they're actually hitting the body on the top when going over bumps. Going to cut them down a little bit and see if it helps. I'm not so sure that the spring is even doing anything when its on the ground. We're going to build some ramps so i can get it up on the alignment rack at work and check it out before we do anything.




    Also washed her tonight, single stage paint still has grease prints all over it. Really needs a good cut and buff...or just a complete paint job. I think I'm leaning towards painting her. Champ white anyone?!?

    Thanks Bill, I'm really hoping to get some paint laid on her this summer. Hopefully I'm fully staffed at work and will have the time.
