Default tearing down the new pt!!

so this past weekend my father and i decided that it was a good time to start workin on our newest pt.

started out being the typical timing belt job! (new water pump; updated tensioner; new shrouds; pully; and new motor mounts)

wen we put her in the air we discovered that it has a seized alternator and a broken spring on the passengers front. and almost broken spring on the drivers
so were tinking about a 2" drop in the front and just stock height in the back (he liked the way it sat kinda sagging in the front... )

we did a leakdown test to figure out if we had any bent valves and there were none!!

LOL theres never a good time to do work on a car.. lol thankfully this one isnt on the road and it'll be just an extra car to drive.

by the time the car was delivered to our house we ended up spending almost $300 (not to bad i think) my dad couldnt just "take" the car like the guy insisted. since it was so close to the holidays; dad flipped the guy 200 cash! nice gesture i guess!! plus the fuel to drive and get it
