    Please do.

    I thought I owned (used to) the rustiest Mirage on the forum, and I didn't notice any problem with the plumbing. Maybe I just overlooked it. I will go check my latest one.

    Would be interesting to know if the Chrysler part really is the same. I can't find a picture of it anywhere...but at least the prices are getting lower on this thing.

    The body and chassis are great on mine, but the radiator support, oil pan and the fasteners under the hood are pretty crispy. I had to use quite a bit of heat to break loose the bolts on the AC compressor which may have contributed to the failure of the crank sensor I'm currently replacing.

    If i cant get someone to part with a used one, that's the one I'll be ordering...unless i have a few beers this weekend and break out the welder to fab up a flange with a hose barb. Rubber hose wont rust.
