I tried, and I succeeded:



Also, got my clutch pedal assembly, finally. Made it pretty, too. Before:



After:



Now, I need to get it towed home from where I've been working on it, because they won't let me work on it there anymore. It's still not running, though, and I don't have enough money to rent a trailer. This is a predicament.

The clutch box came off a car from Kentucky. I don't know the full story, but I needed one on account of my car is automatic, and the only person who would sell me one was from that way. The existing brake pedal box on the car is in much better shape than this box was.

By the by, for future reference, automatic and manual S12 brake pedal arms are the same, the only difference between them is the metal foot plate welded on the end.

Towed the stupid whore to its new resting place: Ryan's apartment. (Not Bryan's apartment, where I had it previously)

Pulled the battery out of the S12 yesterday to put it in the S13. To be fair, the battery originally belonged to the S13. With the use of some spare parts, I've finally gotten the S13 running. I'm not sure if this makes my work on the S12 easier or harder, because now it's going to be especially hard to justify the car to my parents, who I unfortunately still live with, as a poor 21-year-old college dropout. (Of course, it's totally fine if my deaf social-security-collecting father wants to buy a plane and restore it in the garage, alongside all the other junk, but it's a major travesty if I want to have a project car. Or two)

But, it was good to drive an S again. I missed it.

Big plans. Turbocharging plans. But it's admittedly hard to feel that way when it's running after so long not being able to drive it.

This is the only S13 I've ever seen in person without a cracked dashboard and tons of ridiculous cheapskate mods. All I've done to this car so far is replace the factory stereo system with some not-25-year-old Pioneer stuff I had lying around, swapped an S14 KA in (because the original engine seized up within 2 miles me owning it), and I deleted the emissions equipment as part of my vacuum simplification. (Which is ultimately what got it back on the road) I also painted it, I suppose, but my surface prep wasn't the best, so you can see scratches under the paint at about 5 feet away, and some of the painted plastics are exhibiting bubbling and dimpling, which is concerning. Also, the front bumper spent 6 months off the car, and I believe it to be warped. (You can see next to the driver headlight, where it doesn't sit flush. It appears to all be mounted correctly) I intend to strip it back down to bare metal eventually, and repaint it properly in a climate controlled shop, rather than in my driveway. No matter how professional the rest of your equipment is, it's hard to get professional results in a driveway.

At the moment, it's basically stock, and there is a certain magic to that. But this does kind of throw a wrench into my S12 plans. I need to compensate for that by making more money. Somehow.

I'm confused, most people have to make some sort of custom trans crossmember when swapping S13 stuff into their S12. I bought an S13 with a CA18DET and the stock crossmember bolted in just fine on my S12.

Your car is a mk1.5, probably has a Mk2 floorpan. My car is a Mk1, originally automatic even.

Well, a quick pass through the blasting cabinet and it cleaned up nicely. It's in the car now, I just haven't had a chance to cut the brake pedal short. Among other things.

Knew if I stuck around here long enough you would be seen driving an S12!
BTW do you miss the CA yet?

I wasn't even driving- that's Ryan. He's actually the owner now. I'm just the technician. What with the S13, the Jeep, and plans for a new daily, I don't have time, money, or space for the S12. So the torch has been passed, kind of. Ryan's totally out of his depth when it comes to this stuff, but he's really interested in the car, and he's learning. During all of this, I'm going to be the one who turns idea into running car, and he does have some ideas, believe you me. This thread might not update too frequently, but when it does, expect cool stuff I guess.

Still, it doesn't feel like any less of a victory to have this car running. It's been a long time coming. This is the first time I've gotten an S12 started since I bought my first car, back in 2011. Feels good, man.

Señor Gonzaga, Ryan does want to get the appropriate steelies, but shipping may preclude that for awhile. He's probably gonna need that window guide before the wheels become enough of a problem to deal with. (Especially since the spare is one of the original wheels to the car, which makes me wonder where the 2 black steel wheels on the one side came from)

Red, hell no. I've got the block sitting in my garage, waiting to be turned into the worst coffee table ever. Eventually.

I've got a line on some SE wheels and may swap them in place of my steelies but it may be September before it happens. I'll have moved to TX by then.

We've got time on the wheel front. Gotta get the exhaust and starter sorted before that becomes a problem.

We eagerly await your arrival in the Lone Star state, even if it is just in Wichita Falls.
