History
Bought it as a project for $500. She ran, but was rough and the previous owner had started parting her out. Missing the MCC, a few minor interior accessories, the shifter knob was a mob of tape and the boot was toast. The steering wheel was just as bad. Both front seats shredded. Tan interior and non-power. Still have yet to find replacements. Almost all parts replaced were direct from the salvage...not new, but new to me.

My work thus far:
-Replaced blown head gasket
-new shifter and boot (salvage)
-MCC (salvage)
-Dash dimmer (salvage)
-Sun visors (salvage)
-steering wheel (x2-1st, a 4 spoke, didn't fit the column)
-*NEW*water pump
-*NEW* thermostat
-misc interior lamps
-pwr ant (salvage)
-able to unlock stereo (had to use a hard reset method I found in these forums)
-tensioner (salvage...I know, buy new, but those prices were CRAZY! I'll replace it later.)
-*NEW* gator back belt
-*NEW* hood emblem (FREE-THANKS SAAB!)

To be done:
-get top to lower
-fix blower? (possible bad MCC)
-replace front seats (anyone have extra set?)
-replace int door panels
-find flaps for tonneau cover

I'll modify as I complete/find new problems...maybe.
