Did another 8 hours of work on the bonne today. It runs and drives now, not yet road worthy but it can move under its own power and has no mechanical issues, other than needing a alignment bad.
Under the hood is almost done, still have to bolt on the cooling fans and vacuum canister under the battery. The ABS unit still needs to be swapped too but not too worried about that until the car is basically done.
I got the intake system done, and the new left headlight harness soldered in, but have yet to get the headlights back in the car. The cooling system is flushed and new green coolant is in the car now.
I swapped the trunk lids so I have the 97 style but it does not latch yet, as I need to adjust it plus for some reason the lock is stuck and won't let the key open it.
I also have the interior partial assembled now and is looking good.
I found a few things I didn't expect today, that have to be delt with among the rest of the work.
Fuel Gauge does not work, maybe got the wiring backwards or something, or won' tthe 93 sender work with the 97 dash?
I used the 97 seats and the 93 seatbelt buckles do not fit, so have to change the belts too.
I installed new airbags too, but still getting a airbag light, so must have to get a new module? Are they only good for one use liek the bags?
ABS/Traction control lights are on, because I do not have the ABS unit installed, probally just pull the bulbs in the dash for the time being so its not annoying.
Performance suspension has a error, both buttons lit up, probably because I have yet to install the 97 rear struts.
Found some of the wiring in the doors is also different, and I need to swap some of the innards.
My advice to other people, this is a difficult and time consuming project I am doing and would suggest no one else try it unless you have a lot of time and paitnece on your hands.
Here'* some pics from today.
Video of the car running while I was flushing the cooling system.
starting to look like a series 2 car under the hood.
Bunch of dash lights on, the little infor panel is all lit up too, since I didn't have any of the lights hooked up yet.
New trunk and lights
Partial installed interior
Mess in the back of the car
Looks like a 96-99 in the picture, huh?
