Just looking for a BF, plan is to do a swap on the Capri that's why I'm looking for a thrashed one I don't wanna  ruin a good car. I just want to get the AWD Bits in tact/rust free. I could care less about the shell. I'm also not looking soon, I plan to do it sometime later this year moneys tight currently.

Also..most guys that are parting GTX's are doing so because they are rusted out.

Ive seen that the shells rust out really bad, does the rust end up affecting the subframe/AWD components, or is that rare? Also thanks for all the support everyone, you guys are amazing! I'm currently having problems with Flickr.

Removed Convertible Top and the rear seat today. Took me 3 hours, it was a real doozy. The hardest part was getting my hardtop off, I had to fight with my rear middle top bolt.

Also im sick of waiting on my mechanic, can one of you give me a walkthrough on how to replace the clutch on my n/a. Give me a full idea of all the tools, and the steps needed. I have an idea on how to do it, but I want to make sure im right.

Update: I was able to complete the clutch change using my Workshop Manual!
