First off, my name is Robert. I have been a fan of the GVR4 since I was a kid and it hurts to have to sell this car
I have owned 226/1000 for a few years now, working on it from time to time when I am not working on my other projects. The car has been sitting for awhile because it developed a coolant leak and the Original Owner parked it. The car is a One Owner.

Things I have done so far:

Replaced pretty much the whole cooling system and freeze plugs
Rebuilt injectors and cleaned fuel system
Installed new intake and throttle body gaskets
Some cleaning and detailing

So the plan is/was to go through the car and "fix whats broken" (there's not much broken) and resale it. So as you can see from the Pictures I have started tearing down the car to rebuild the brakes and front end. Also going to get the AC working too. Just basic stuff.

Now you can watch this build log and to see the details of the minor rebuild and buy the car when I put it up for sale next month on Here or Ebay etc or you can buy the car and I can preform a full restoration. At a fee of coarse. I have attached pictures of a few of the other vehicles I have done in the past. I have more pictures upon request of the VR4 or other projects.

Oem Parts I have been collecting and some that the previous owner had stored in the trunk. I try to use oem parts when they are available.

While I wait on parts for the Galant I have been Rebuilding the front suspension on my 97 Z71. Compared to the k1500, Rebuilding the front suspension on the Galant will be Cake.

Still waiting on a lot of parts. Got the suspension painted and the wheel wells undercoated. Also disassembled the brake calibers and painted them.

So today I vacuumed down the AC system to check for leaks and it looks like there is a small leak from the valve on the compressor. I have complete O ring kit for the AC system I will tear apart the system and clean it, replace the dryer and oil it. I also did some more detailing in the engine bay.









Keeping with the " If it Ain't broke don't fix it" plan. I checked the rack and pinion for leaks and did not see any so I installed the tie rods and put new bellows on it. The original owner took very good care of this car.



I also replaced the outer cover on the driver side CV axle.



Some parts have come in the mail but still waiting on a few more before I started putting the car back together.

Been busy with other things but I got the brakes rebuilt and disassembled the struts and springs. The struts were definitely blown, as you can tell from the picture. I also dropped the gas tank.
