    Talking Burnsside's 1986 9000 Turbo Repairs & Restoration

    So last week things got slow at work - the dealership I work at. So having my 86' 9000 sitting in the back lot I decided to toss some parts on the ol' gal and start getting her ready for Carlisle. No new pictures of the car as of yet - nothing cosmetically has changed (yet).....

    So I replaced BOTH lower engine mounts; I replaced the rear lower with a SOLID aftermarket mount and the front with a factory style hydraulic motor mount. After doing this I then went on to replace the severely torn passenger side outer C/V boot.

    I then sprayed down the "oil debris" from some smallish oil leak the engine has in hopes of maybe finding it's source - but overall it's a small average sort of seepage I am not too worried about right now.

    Next up on the list;

    • Replace both coolant temp sensors/sender & flush coolant
    • Fit 16" Aero Wheels
    • Replace the clutch master cylinder with NOS part
    • Perform front end toe alignment
    • Remove & repair driver seat manual seat height adjuster
    • Locate a NOS Hella Passenger (RH) headlamp assembly
    • Install NOS front grill
    • Locate good condition "C Pillar" panels



    - I love these old 9000's, so easy to work on -

    Pictures from Eurocar show 6-19-2011 in Upstate NY;



    Camping @ Carlisle 2011;



    WANTED ITEMS:

    • RH (Passenger) NOS Hella Headlamp Assembly
    • Rear Louvers with hardware
    • Hatch Glass Pull-Up Shades (2 side by side)
    • Three Part 85' Only Trunk Spoiler
    • Any Rare options for 85/86 MY
    • Anything NOS for an 86' 9000
    • Dash Vents (knobs are crumbling from age)

    I have the rear louvers sitting at my parents place, we were cleaning out my old bosses garage and he had it thrown on the scrap pile so I took it home with me. I have the upper hinge strip/hardware but no lower feet, should be easy enough to fab up something though. Shoot me a note if you're interested. I'm sure my parents would love to start downsizing the parts stash for cars we don't own

    Also - just threw these on @ lunch today - thoughts?



    There are 4 15" stockers in the truck - it sags normally - just not THAT much. Front end looks like a sky-jacker lift lol

    I think it looks really good. Always liked those wheels on that vintage of 9000. Now all you need are louvers and an Airflow Kit.

    Thanks! I had an airflow kit (well - Carlsson Kit) and I sold it a few years ago. I just want to have a rather stock and clean looking 86' 9000 with some fancy accessory things.

    That was kinda what I did with my '95 CSE, jazzed it up with a few accessories... '98 CSE wheels, accessory mud guards, bridge spoiler. Made it unique but not over the top.

    I may have a headlight for you... new, never installed... need to check storage to confirm it's the right side. Could you snap a picture of the dash vents you need? I should have some of those, too.

    ALL of them needed for dash vents.... will post picture later. Thanks


    Later:

    Not mine - but same dash. I need the Left, the Center and the far right - although i believe the far right is part of the glove box - so to start off, the left and center would be good.

    An ad from 2/15/12 has a louvers (ooops, looks like you found them). Nothing else you really want unless it's a Carlsson kit (ooops, looks like you won't). So, I guess you can ignore this whole post.

    Boy - that Carlsson kit is BEAT! If that thing was in 1/2 the shape my old kit was in I'd consider it based on it being the right color - but damn. Nice find - at least most of his prices are close to reality.
