Well, as alot of your guys know, I picked up a 94 Mirage LS shortly before going overseas in 2008. I put her in storage out here in Illinois, and for the most part forgot about her.
Well, fast forward to 2012, and I'm back! Well, the years in storage werent good to the car. The humidity played havoc to the roof! Rust spots just like on the 3G's that alot of you guys have! I'll get to fixing that later....
The more important issues had to do with what happened under the car. The gas tank filler hose was dry rotted, so the first chance I got, I ordered a new one from
The injectors were clogged with rotted gas, as was the tank. A quick drain and new injectors, wire/cap, and rotor got her back running decent!
The previous owner had dogs, and the carpet in the car smelled like dog ass, so out came the carpet, and in went a replacement unit from jcwhitney.com!!
The suspension was shot to hell, so I installed KYB GR2 all aound with Megan Racing Springs. 1.5" rears, and 2" fronts. We installed a modded 1G/VR4 FWD-ish rear disc brake assembly, and I'll be following up with a front 1G DSM/4x114.3 swap soon.
I rounded off the suspension with Tenzo Meister V2 gunmetal wheels, with Falken tires
For the time being, she'll be a daily driver til I find out where my new assignment will be.
I figured I'd post the pics here, since they're 4G specific.
In any case, enjoy!
