    LSJ Swapped SW2 Sleeper Wagon Build

    Hello everyone my name is Carter and I would like to introduce the car I'm currently building to people who will probably care the most!

    Over a year ago I bought a 2001 SW2 in Quebec and drove it back to Ontario. I drove the car for the winter and loved it. The only problem with it, like my SC2 it was just wasn't very fast.
    After searching the internet for things I could do to make it faster I stumbled upon psw71's thread and got a little inspired. I then very luckily found and saved a 2007 Ion Redline with very minor damage from a wrecking yard.

    I'm documenting the whole process and it has progressed quite nicely already. I have started a YouTube channel called Noble Garage and will be posting videos of the build there regularly.
    Please feel free to go check out my channel and videos, even subscribe if you'd like!
    I am doing my best to produce quality enjoyable content to hopefully build up an audience. If you have any comments please let me know, and share my channel if you enjoy the videos.

    I will also do my best to check and post to this thread regularly. Enjoy!

    Welcome. I just subbed to this, it looks like it's going to be a pretty cool build. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm really interested to see how you fix the crack in the bumper cover (if you don't just replace it outright). I've never fixed one on a Saturn before, but I've gotten a lot of mileage out of my Polyvance Mini-Weld 5 on a couple other bumper covers, and it might be a really good choice to fix it, if the cover is a thermoplastic (I think they even sell kits for fixing bumper covers).

    Finally, it was kind of funny to watch the hood pop up on the Ion, I guess it's good that it didn't rip the hinges off and go flying.
