I bought the CG2 in 2013 and drove it for a few years, then I got a new job and a new project car, so I parked it in the back yard and ignored it ever since. Maintaining an S60R is a goddamn nightmare and costs a literal fortune (spend a few grand, drive it for 2 weeks, repeat for years). I had forgotten how comparatively easy, cheap, and fun it is working on Accords. Anyway.. My volvo blew a power steering hardline so I parked it for a bit. Might as well replace a bunch of things while its down, so it will be a couple months in my garage and cost another 5 grand before its back on the road. I was moving my cars around and memories of driving the CG2 just hit me like a ton of bricks, so I figured why not put it back on the road in the meantime? Well sitting in a canadian back yard for 4 years takes its toll on an old car. Right off the bat I need a new battery, all new fluids and filters, all new rotors and pads, and new tires. I rebuilt all the calipers so they're good, but my handbrake cable needs to be replaced. First test fire I found out the throttle was sticky when I put the pedal down and it didnt come back up. The noise at WOT let me know one of the mufflers was wide open too. Second test fire was much better, except the idle was all over the place. Rebuilt the IACV and that problem was solved. Now it runs smooth but I'm looking at a new oxygen sensor. Cat might be in bad shape but a complete new exhaust is in the plans if the car ends up being driveable. The body is in surprisingly good shape except for the paint, and the now nonexistent rear wheel wells. The rear jack points collapsed too, wonderful. Im no stranger to metalworking and bodywork so we'll see what happens there. If the car behaves over the next year, I'm ready to do a complete teardown, frame restore, and proper rebuild. Its one of the most fun cars Ive ever had, and I like the thought of keeping it for a long time. I know the average person would have scrapped the car by now, but so far I'm looking at a grand total of about 900 bucks to put it back on the road, which is far less than the cost of one shock absorber on my volvo. SIGH. Also I've been paying the plate and insurance on the car this entire time so, sunken cost fallacy.. I suppose this thread will serve as a place for me to track the progress, get input on other things to check on a car thats been rotting for 4 years, and hear stories of other cars saved from being scrapped.
