Saab Progress

Update by Per Schroeder to the Saab 99 project car
Apr 26, 2007

With everyone off to the Mitty, the Saab progress is going to stop for a few days. Here’s where we are at:

Almost all of the rust on the passenger side of the car, including the front and rear wheel wells, passenger door, trunk and battery tray, are fixed. There’s one spot on the inner fender near the tie rod that needs a patch, but that will be easier with the suspension arms and shocks out of the car, something we see happening a little later down the road.

There is a Centerforce clutch on the way to us. This will replace the oil soaked one in the car. We ordered and received a new rear main seal if that’s part of the problem in there.

Also, we’ve ordered another set of four Carroll Shelby rims. That gives us seven. Our goal is 11 of these wheels, six for rally tires and five for tarmac tires.

After we get back from the Mitty, we’ll probably have the clutch and get that done. That will allow us to take the car to the tag office and get it official-like. Next, we’ll work on the rust on the driver’s side of the car.

More later.
