  2. John, Congrats on the windshield removal. Just be sure to store it right. I spent hours removing the one from my ferrari 308gtb (also bonded in) I stored it face down on a bed of bubble wrap.

  4. Thanks for the picture of the 'goose' Wayne. That car has some things in comon with the early esprit in that Giugiaro designed the body and it also has a backbone box section frame. Mine originally was a native of Michigan like the one in the picture. It was mechanically very fit when I parked it in my shop about 18 years ago.

Purchasing a distressed restorable vehicle is easy in comparison to actually getting it finished. Most of my projects could be drivable w/o much work but I think it a shame to drive a car with poor cosmetics. I am leaning tow
  6. hello all I bought a basketcase s2 esprit about 10 years ago and haven't started putting it back together yet. It is a complete, undamaged 16,000 mile car but the engine had been removed and partially disassembled presumably for modification. I have over the years purchased some performance parts such as aluminum flywheel and the dual dellorto 45s. I have also been kicking around the idea of an engine swap using a low mileage contour svt 2.5l v6 as long as it wouldn't alter the car in such a way as that it couldn't be returned to stock.
