Hello all, I posted a few months ago saying that I was beginning to save for an NA, and behold, I have bought a '94 red 5-speed. Here is the "Welcome Thread.

I bought her Sunday night, firing her up at 8:53. Clocking 125,XXX miles, everything seems mechanically sound overall. Needs some belts, and I am noticing some rattling in the transmission starting around 2400 rpms (anyone know anything about this?). I've put a little over 200 miles on her since Sunday, and I'm obsessed.

Monday Night

Tuesday!
School was ridiculously hard to get through, all I wanted to do was get home to Rosetta and begin tearing something out, anything!

Starting off by pulling the wheels off to check the suspension. There wasn't a ton of rust under there, which was nice to discover. Texas doesn't have all of those nasty winters with the salt and whatnot. I wish there was some snow though, I miss my Oklahoma City winters. Either way, I believe these are the factory shocks, which seem to be doing okay from what I can tell. This is my first performance orientated vehicle so I don't know how it really should be riding.

Still rolling on a bone stock suspension. It feels okay to me, but I know that if I get in a car with some new components I'd be blown away. by Ethan Nicosia, on Flickr[/IMG]

I also weighed the wheel and tire. Seems pretty heavy for a 14x6. I've never seen a weigh in for these stockers, so here that is.

Started pulling some carpet....

And the center console is now gone, which I believe I want to hang in my room just for shits and giggles. The passenger seat will be going back in tomorrow, and I have been having some major issues getting the driver seat out. I've hit the bolt with a BFH, and have been spraying it with penetrating lube. No luck yet, any suggestions are appreciated. I just want to get everything clean. I don't have an impact which makes life difficult.

I need new upper and lower boots which was to be expected. It is kinda funny to see the transmission from the driver's seat.

I really don't know. I guess it's just because there isn't anything that I could be more affectionate towards. Girls, cars and cameras. Obviously cameras don't get names, but cars and girls do. Rosetta is also an Italian name, which I'm Italian, so it fits.

A)"Climb into Rosetta"
"I just got some new oil and a filter for Rosetta"

B)"My fucking car is broken"

I think I'll stick to plan B

I'm just gonna be blunt. This is my car, and whatever I decide to name it or do with it is up to me. I come on here for advice, not to be flamed for a name. If you don't agree, get the hell out of my thread. :littlepony:
