Hi all A few things that have been done so far.
Removed about 95 % of the leather interior for cleaning and repairing any lil bits.
Also removed the carpets and washed them in the washing machine, they came out amazingly clean
I Rebuilt the steering rack
Replaced the motor mounts with some new Anchors
Added the cool titanium door regulator shim to hold the doors open
Installed 4 new Bilstien shocks
Replaced the front disc pads
Replaced the rear rotors and installed new emergancy brake shoes
Scrubbed all four wheel wells to remove all the crud from never being washed, replaced the fender liners that were cracked
Fixed the fuel pump it had a very small leak, installed a new filter
Replaced the starter relay with a new # 53 it had a melted post from the EXK failing and the PO trying to start it by continuous cranking
Restiched the steering wheel with some waxed thread, its not factory but it looks very good
Resealed the transmission and replaced the vacuum modulator and replaced a brake band servo with the updated part
Rebuilt the torque tube, replaced the torque converter bearings

Thing to do yet
Pull out motor do a valve job. replace valve seals and head gaskets and valve guides, mill heads, powder coat the intake and valve covers, replace all engine seals, replace all flexible fuel lines, replace all flexible ATF lines and power steering lines, replace all PCV lines and vacuum lines, replace the AC drier and expansion valves, replace the right side radiator tank , install the interior, polish the glass, touch up any paint scratches and wet sand and buff the paint, install new wheels and tires, install a new front spoiler, and undertray, replace all the stereo speakers and the head unit, install a GTS antenna, install a RMB, and there may be a few other things but thats most of whats going on for now......Once again I must thank Garrity and Dave for their help.....Have a great day, take care for now, Stan

Stan,

I enjoyed seeing it Friday and like I said, it is one of a kind and a significant example of the S4. One of a kind from the factory and worthy of saving. Can't wait to see it finished.

Ironic that you would suggest brake hoses with all those on the rack right over Stan's right shoulder....

Thanks for the upsell!!!
