Just wanted to know the reasoning for this............

i don't drive it, its old, its no longer needed, it will never be how i want as it needs about 3K in body work to fix the plastics, fenders, and strut towers. Its time for me to move on and enjoy what ive worked for and sadly it does not involve this car.

Whoa...at first I thought you meant that you'd be doing some more mods to it in the off season. This caught me off guard as you have put a lot of money and work into the car to get her where she sits today. While I can understand your decision, it will be sad to see her go....was a very well thought out and nice build. Now....when will the vultures swoop in? lol If it wasn't for my P5 rusting away I'd be at the top of the list hoping to acquire some of those parts from you.

most of the rare, big parts have already been purchased and shipped to the new owners. Some pieces I'm keeping and others will be FS after the weekend. It hit me late Monday while i was in the garage taking the front of the car apart after i took those photos what was actually happening but it was time for me to move on. Ill have the pictures and friends i have now because of the car, because of that i don't need it sitting around and rotting its time for me to park both of my brand new car out of the winter storms in my garage.

Cut up fender to install the side markers, wired them up to the turn signals. Love the new look makes the car a little different. Also had the change out the rearview mirror bracket that sticks to the glass, the wings on it snapped so order new bracket.

Damn have I been away that long? What the hell happened?

He took all the parts off, then loaded it on that truck lol youre not that far behind everyone else

pretty much 10 years to build and 5 days to take apart and send the shell to be crushed, the rust was not worth fixing and the car was falling apart. Even without seeing snow or salt for the last 5 years the rust was too much and the unibody and strut towers were way to soft. Now i have a basement full of parts and lots of work to do to ship them after i make the FS thread.

Finally installed my oem alarm. Pretty happy with it
Been happy with mine. It has worked great. Did you get the glass breakage vibration module with it too? That thing works very good. I can knock on back window or windshield or other part of car and it'll warn people right away. Had to turn sensitivity way down to reasonable setting. Even bought an extra one for bkup if ever any issues. Love the plugnplay aspect of it.

yeah it came with it and i had an extra gauge surround that already had the led in it so i didnt have to drill anything. love awesome plug and play didnt take long to install and gives me a some peace of mind especially since im going to install a new headunit. (nana)
