    How much do you think it's worth, or how much do you think I would need to sped on it for it to be reliable?

    Most of the "problem's" could be solved with a little time and some TLC, just tinkering kinda stuff for the most part.

    What the hell, is an Ignition Cylinder? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    If its a daily driver, then I could understand. Never being sure of whether you'll make it from point A to B is a hassle. If its not you daily driver, then you should hang in there. A lot of the parts you need are available for cheap at local junkyards, the best being the pull-your-own parts places. Its amazing how many screws, bolts and trim pieces fit in your pockets! Of course I always pay for the big stuff, but still it is alwasy reasonable. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    I'll give you a couple hundred for it, if you deliver it to NC.

    Really, if I had it, I would make it into a trail rig, and buy something more reliable for a daily driver.
