    New from New England

    Hello all! (On mobile so forgive mistakes).

    New owner here. Just got a Ď01 SL 5 speed. It has 225k Miles. Both front springs rusted through and snapped. Front sub-frame is rusting pretty good (itís a CT car), and it has an oil leak somewhere. But it started right up after sitting for over a year once I put a new battery in it. And no frame rust surprisingly. But there is water in the trunk corners...

    I live in...well I live in 2 places now: Cape Cod, MA and Southwest Harbor, ME (work reasons).
    New to Saturns, but not car modding. Iíve owned quilte a few, including a couple RX-7s (an 83 and a 93 - still ďhaveĒ the 93, but itís with my dad in Hawaii until I can pay to get it running and shipped...a pretty penny), a Ď91 Escort GT, a Ď90 240SX, and a lifted Ď96 Pathfinder.

    Got the car for free from my roommate. So itís gonna be a fun project. Maintanece first then on to the fun stuff.

    Jose

    The nice thing about Saturns is that most parts transfer among models. My subframe broke clean through right by the left control arm. I got one off a wagon in florida for about $400 (shipped) when i was living in Pittsburgh. The rad supports were a little bit off, mostly due to what i believe was previous front end damage..Nothing a B.F.Hammer couldnt fix though. East coast rust is the worst.
