I caved and bought another Berretta. 3 weeks to the day it finally has started and without any problems :p It was a 90GT auto with a 3.1 but now has a rebuilt 3400 and is 5spd swapped with all poly mounts 8) Not to mention I also installed my Sprint springs and KYB's, while in the progress, did the 92 brake upgrade with new brakes all around. Ball joints and sway bar links where all bought new also. Not much was untouched but now its time to have a beer or 2 and smile :pimp:

I'd like to thank my work for ordering all the parts I needed so quickly also, a big thanks go out to the boys there. Thank goes out to Rick from this site for stopping by and bleeding the tranny.Although he broke my bleeder screw on my slave, thanks for spares!

Here are some pics of where I have been hiding out. Its now a mess and I'll post up more pics when I pull it out of the garage. Tommorrow or the next its going for its 2.5 exhaust with a high flow cat and flowmaster muffler :wink:

Did you use my mount on this one?

Even though the pic is blurry looks like a complimenting colour scheme.

3 weeks is pretty decent turn around time for what you did.

I do but look where I work :wink: Auto wrecker :lol: I seen your post in the B/S/T forum that car looked mint, your dad must be upset :-?
oh he is very bummed. that was the first brand new car he ever bought. he washed and waxed it every weekend. he actually washed it and cleaned the interior today :-? i wish i could do more to help him out. the last car he took that much pride in was his '72 toronado with a 455. he loved that car too. i guess thats where i got it from. i actually posted a pic of myself when i tried helping him change the oil on it when i was 2 :lol: you may have seen that one. one of the things he wanted to sell was the front grill. i guess its a rarity on those??

That's a whole lot of work for 3 weeks. Good Job! It took me 6 months to do all that to my Z. I had to wait on money for parts though.

I'm going to be doing a swap very similar in my Fiero. Hopefully it doesnt take more then 2 weeks though. :-?
