Is the fm 2.5 suspension nb spec conversion?
In reply to 92CelicaHalfTrac:
No. NA front hats, FM rear shock hats.
There is no such thing as a 2.5 NB spec. The 2.5 is designed to use NA components, and is better than any NB bits would be
After you drove all the way to my house to by parts???
Oh, and I need that radiator bad! My wifes car is leaking!
I will take the FM suspension if you don't sell it with the car.

I meant was it ready to bolt onto nb. I worded it poorly.
In reply to joey48442:
I do have a stock auto. radiator that came out of it. Miles unknown, but the plastic tanks are not green yet.
Edited after mis-reading my own ad...
I forgot to put in the ad, the car also has working AC that was just re-done with R134a last summer. I did put in the PS pump delete pulley bought from joey48422 as well.
In reply to psteav:
1st on list if it doesn't go with the car.
I'll be posting more pictures of stuff this weekend.
I know a guy that might be interested...and we are both in MI. I won't see him until Wednesday so I will pass along your info.
More pictures uploaded today! Sale pending on engine. Radiator sold.
Why am I 6'5"?!?!?!?!? WHY?????
In reply to FlightService:
Foamectomay already done :)
I've opened the car up to the loonies on CL at a higher price. GRM still has first dibs.

My wife said no :( I have to go to bed now....
Are you willing to ship the wheels?
Joshua wrote: Are you willing to ship the wheels?
As long as they don't go with the car. I have some folks coming this week to check it out. Shipping for wheels and tires usually runs about $100-$150 depending on ZIP from 48108
Dangit...I've had two people now who have wanted the car to only have it vetoed by SWMBO. Grrr...
Frustration bump. Great price for an awesome car! I am really underpricing it!
Weekend bump. I'll be available all weekend to show the car, just let me know!
I would buy it if I wasn't so far away, this is exactly what I am looking for.
In reply to jonnyd330:
Fly & Drive! I'd drive it anywhere tomorrow!
Another buyer flaked. What am I doing wrong? Too honest?
Edited for clarification: The buyer that flaked never even came to see the car. He was supposed to send me a deposit, but never did and stopped returning emails or calls. He said he saw it here though so that surprised me that it was a GRMer. Just hope nothing bad happened as he was very nice on the phone.
