Ha. Yeah that would be the smart way to do it, anyway. All these schools reopening are just playing Russian Roulette and it's not getting better anywhere.Thankful for that! Part of me hopes that this semester (my last), gets pushed to online classes only so I can go back home and work on this thing all the time! LOL
This reply didn’t age well... good thing I haven’t left my studio apartment in like 3 months LOLHa. Yeah that would be the smart way to do it, anyway. All these schools reopening are just playing Russian Roulette and it's not getting better anywhere.
Is it under the passenger or drivers side seat? I don’t remember seeing anything there but my dad pulled the front seats.^
Did you take the under seat amp and harness? Always worth grabbing those and you'll want to use that in your T5M if you don't have it. Then you can add the Dolby module properly.
Great score. I'm glad you got the goodies.Something that did age well is my patience to get ahold of parts for this project, unlike my 850R project. A 98 VR popped up at a local junkyard so my dad and I were able to score a bunch of goodies that I’ve been wanting for a long while.
Scored the full interior, which will be transplanted onto my 99 seats. I know a local upholsterer that does good work, I want to ask to add a little more foam to make a larger bolster too, similar to what Neal did in his 850 build... that’s tbd though. The front seats need some repair, but totally worth the $150 for basically the entire interior. Rears are in rally good shape, just need a cleaning. There’s some deep dents in the leather that need a day in the sun to bring back to normal position.
There were some casualties though, the rear drivers side door car will need to have these mounts epoxied back on. But got the stainless sill plates without bending them!
And pulled the SC-901 too, will have to go back to potentially pull more in depth parts too, but the 901 was an easy one to toss in. Will likely use it in my VR before the t5m because this t5m doesn’t have the Dolby box to support the 901 I think.
I also recently scored a set of brand new jewels too, I wanted to sell them but I’m on the fence for that. Might wrap them in clear film and run them in LED lows because I loved the LED jewels in my old NA/m.
Very happy with this project update, next in line is to get the interior habitable then the car is off to get some paint work done, along with the new R bumper and wing painted to match.

It doesn't look like much. Has to be there for SC-900/901 to give you anything other than the center channel.Is it under the passenger or drivers side seat? I don’t remember seeing anything there but my dad pulled the front seats.
I can see the dolby box plug, but can’t see the amp.
Classes got in the way as well! Excited for those to be over lol. But I appreciate the well wishes!Noice! Now I understand why I didn't hear from you about the door cards and whatnot, LOL. No hard feelings! Well done, sir! :thumbup:
Just to be clear, the amp is under the passenger side seat near the center console. The harness also runs along that side, obvi.
Don't worry about the clips. On the door cards I harvested, they all came unglued. Cars are 20 years old now. I don't know if epoxy is necessary though, I'd probably use Gorilla glue or similar.
Edit: Also, don't forget the leather shift knob and emergency brake handle. Steering wheel is not thumb grip, but still unique to MY98 VR. Might be able to resell it.
