The Departation of a Special -- Tons of pix added - 06/02/10

Thought I would document the parting out of a special as it goes.

Kind of depressing.

05/12/10

First the seats
Cluster, clock, misc.
Front bumper, grilles, markers gone.
Then came the exhaust.





This is the 99 getting parts. Saved me around $500 already.



Engine is getting pulled this weekend. More pics to come.

AS OF 5/19/2009 motor still in but this weekend......

Took Off the Calipers, wheels, front door harnesses, and mirrors.





These are my "temp" wheels, may not match but I found 4.
Note: the special wheel has a crappy tire, so dont give me any crud.



I think the 17" wheels look good on the silver special. Maybe its just me.



More to come, making a visit to harbor freight tomorrow. :biggrin::biggrin:

UPDATE MAY 25th Engine out!





Front sway bar, knuckle, cats, fans fenders:





Transmission and steering rack are next,

"Departation..." (deportation), "document" - I thought you were being funny/clever doing a play on words about the illegal immigration stuff. I was playing along. :therethere:
Oh.... yes yes.... thats exactly what I was doing.... :breakfast:

How'd you get that exhaust out in one piece? If I ever find me a special in one piece I want to do just that!
Loosen the front clamps at the end of the caps. Few taps and swear words later you will have it. Have a buddy get on one side and you the other start pullin and twisting.

I am presuming that it is actually 2 Resonators and 2 mufflers
True. The Y and H muffler is getting cut and made into a true dual set up. Mufflers and tips to be replaced later. The dual inlet/outlet in the front is getting replaced with a dynomax x pipe.
