F31roger 3.0

Post by f31roger » Tue Nov 20, 2018 2:41 pm

Well, I've been searching for a vert sporadically. Waiting and looking. Wishing and hoping.

Do I buy a project? Or do I buy something that I can build upon, but costs more?

Thanks to Jim P, my wishes have been met.

Jim posted this a couple months back. This is actually a record. 4 verts in one picture! We had 3 in 2006

Anyways, Jim emailed me saying someone had hit one of them:

He didn't want to part out another vert. I waited and I was playing around and I asked him if I could have it.

He said I could!!!!

I'm gonna try and get it this week!

Well, it happened. Jim gave me the vert and a spare door!!!

I drove it to Olympia (parent's house) where my dad was gonna get it looked at after he gets it registered.

This is where the snag it. DMV told my dad previous owner needs to get a new title... and that has taken some time.
I trust Jim and I know he is busy.
As of March 20th, the title is on the way (a couple weeks to get).

Here are some pix of it at my parent's place:

Immediately after I got back from Seattle, I hit up the vert that was in Fairfield's PnP and got the fender and trunk molding/trim.

While waiting, I started to get the stuff I felt I needed.

Door pins

Climate control, since the one on the vert didn't work

I also got Stagea cupholders

Going through my stuff, I forgot I saved this black dash mat, so that will go on the vert:

And the current final piece, which I happened to come upon in the junkyard!!! Miraculously!!!!
It is brown/tan, which will match my interior! I cleaned it up and it looks perfect!!!

The plan is once the title gets to my dad, he will take it to the body shop and see what they quote. Jim's initial body shop assessment was $1800 w/o the door.

I want to see what would the cost be just to pull the door and put in the replacement.

Water pump, thermostat and belts will be changed sometime too.
---------------------------------

After that, I hope it happens quickly, but when my family is in Canada, I want to drive it and in July, possibly hit RADwood Seattle and then take pictures in Canada.

When I do go up there, I want to bring the boot, a copy of the front lip and maybe even the zenki tail lights.


Then at one point, I'll drive it down so it can be here in the bay area.

I do want to address the rust spot on the front top of wind shield.

But the eventual plan is to repaint.
