The car I started of with was a 1990 swift GA, later down the I found a 1994 gt 750 miles away in New York so one weekend me and my buddy went and got it. Get it home and well there was sooooooo much rust the shell was shot, but my 90 swift shell is in pretty decent shape. We ripped the motor out of the gt and began the long 7 month overhaul for getting everything ready too be swapped over into the GA. Finally the day came I had to strip my daily driver down too nothing and put it all back together with a new motor, trans, wiring and interior. 2 weeks later of hours of long nights while working 60+ hours a week she was finally alive. Couldn't have been more happy with how it all turned out, but will I ever do this again probly not.

Good stuff man. Keep it up. I'm gonna be rebuilding my GT engine soon after accidentally boosting to 14psi and losing compression in half my cylinders.
