My 1992 Rs

Postby lmancha96 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 12:33 am

Hey guys havent been around here in awhile but I really want to start going to more of those monthly meets...

last time I was here I had this 91 Rs Image got it for my 16th b-day but unfortunately that one was totaled

(more details on that here: http://www.thirdgen.org/techboard/membe ... ecked.html)


After a couple months of me dwelling over that loss I decided it was time to get another one and here is where I am at now...

Here it is when I got it back in August

it is a 1992 Rs With the 3.1 V6 and 700R4 The clock reads 170,000

I picked it up for $1000

the body is pretty straight has a couple of dents and some minor rust nothing to major (which I have gotten repaired since then)

Image

Image

apparently the PO was trying to turn the poor car into a low rider he even had daytons on it when I get it :D fortunately I saved it!!

After I stripped the interior and repaired rust that I found on the floor pans

Image

About a month after having it I got pretty much a full interior for 100 bucks from a 92 B4C that was totaled..

Image

Image

I ended up using the seats from my 91 since the ones that the guy had on the b4c were tore up badly.

Sorry about the pics Iphones make for crappy camera's lol

Image

Image

And after I started tearing stuff off

Image

decided hoods are overated lol

Image
just kidding The hood needed to be Re-aligned and the ground fx was broken so I replaced it with the one I salvaged from my 91 I also installed a bowtie grill

Image

and thats pretty much where I am at now...

Unfortunately I have not been able to touch nor see the car for about a month now :(

We moved about 30 minutes away and I couldnt afford to have it towed over there(oh yeah i forgot to mention the day I decided I was going to move it the VATS goes out on me :lol:) so I dropped it at my dads house...

I am waiting to start working again so I can get the engine running and start using it for school/work while at the same time fixing it up

Future Modifications



Keep in mind Im trying to be as realistic as possible with all my goals or atleast I think I am.. I dont see any of these being any where close to being completed until im about 18 or 20 and in college if anything ill try and get the paint some time around february of this year for my bday but other than that all these mods will get done very slowly.

New paint: Have not quite decided on what color stuck between White,Black, and a metallic blue

Suspension: Koni Shocks and struts, Spohn Lca's and pan hard bar. SFC's Eibach Pro Kit, 4th Gen Rear end and so on.

New Rims: Really like these 5z1gen's http://www.5zigen.co.jp/english/product ... 01r-c.html but dont think they fit :?: Lol Might end up going with some C6's

New Engine: As of right now the plan is to drive the v6 around until about may or april when me any my brother finish swapping a 350 into his iroc hes going to give me his LB9 for some cash and were going to swap that in. The engine runs strong now with a little over 100,000 miles on it I want to take it all apart get it cleaned up real good, do some headwork a full exhaust and all the little performance parts I can get into it. and incase you were wondering NO i dont have some fantasy where I can make a 305 run 9's( or do I?) or anything like that i just want something better than that v6 in the car and I have known this LB9 for about eight years now and it has never had any problems what soever ...

Although Later I do indeed wish to drop an L31 Vortech into it and then I will have some real fun.

Looks like you still have a ways to be before it is as nice as your old car...but it also looks like you are well on your way. It's always nice to see a 3rd gen get rescued. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing it.

BTW, I've got lots of stuff that would fit that car, including a full dash (no gauges), a factory high rise spoiler (like what is on my car), some fenders and lots of little stuff from a '92 Z-28 I parted out. If there is anything you need, or you just want come browse though what I have, let me know.
If it breaks, make it stronger.
If it doesn't, try harder.

Thanks man, Hopefully I can get the car to my house by this weekend... Then I can start working on it.. Decided to keep the v6 to much hassle swapping in the v8.. Gonna fix the injectors on the car, the vats, and give it a full tune up and go from there...

The bad part is I can start driving for another year :x :x :x
