I have a 90k mile 1990 turbo convertible in a "9 condition" with no modifications. It will remain my garage queen for the remainder of its lifetime. It’s an automatic and I have never had success with C900 automatics. Regardless of views regarding automatics (plenty out there), I’ve decided to replace with 5-speed. I’ve done the auto to 5-speed conversion before, so no sweet. Besides gearbox longevity, 5-speeds are by far more enjoyable to drive. However, the only way to make the conversion cost reasonable is to do it yourself with a full donor car. So I bought an 88 turbo convertible 5 speed as a donor. Once conversion is done, I’ll remove whatever parts off that I think I need & can sell before sending to metal scrap yard for a few extra dollars.
Having that said, what should I pull off as personal spares or should have in the attic just in case because it’s a PITA part to find at a reasonable price?
Thanks in advance.
