« on: August 17, 2019, 10:58:11 AM »
 :) Hi Everyone!
Got This Car For Christmas! 2.0 With Headers, 4 Speed Manuel, Runs Pretty Well.
Would Love To Install A 5 Speed Trans.
Yeah She Needs A Lot Of Work!
Interior Is Restored Already, But Exterior Needs A Lot!
Guy Who Had It Lowered It Too Much, And Lost All Kinds Of Original Parts,
Met A Guy Near Me And Got A Lot Of Parts, But Still Need Stuff!
Interior Passenger Door Handle, Hood? Drivers Side Fender?
Front And Rear Bumpers?
Will Up Date As I Get Stuff Done!
Thanks!

Finally Got The Grill Done.
Not Sure If I'll Add The Pinto Emblem To It?
Thoughts?

The grill looks great!  As to adding the emblem, I guess it all depends on what you're going for here... if you want a stock appearance, then no.  No Pinto ever had an emblem on the grill.  If you're more into custom modifications, then do as you please; it's your car and you have every right in the world to do whatever you like with it.

Well Tried To Replace The Front Coils, But This Poor Car Has The Original Ball Joints!
Hard To Find And Pricey! Have To Modify The Lowers ( When They Get Here)
And Remove Rivets! (How Fun)
Hopefully I Can Do This Next Week, Have To Get It Off The Ground!

You can either use a grinder or a drill to get rid of the rivets.
Or, since you aren't keeping it bone stock you can get tubular control arms front Speedway. Either just the lowers or all four. They have screw in ball joints.
