This is my Red Chrysler ES thread.
The Chrysler ES is the European version of the Dodge Shadow.

I bought my first ES 2 years ago (April 4 2011) while waiting for a V8 car.
It has a 2.5L TI engine with an A413 auto trans.

A few months later I found another same car, that I bought to have some spare parts.

The seller repaired the car without putting a dollar on it.
Since I bought the car I discovered :
- the spare wheel and jack were missing,
- the rear sway bar and panhard bar were removed when the muffler was repaired with some steel,
- the ECU connector was glued to the ECU which was loaded of errors (like the fan always on),
- the turbo was dead so the oil and water lines were pinched,
- the air filter was removed,
- the AC was removed,
- the air filter box bracket, timing belt covers were lost,
- shocks were dead, tires were cracked as the timing belt,
- no oil on the power steering box,
- battery dead,
- leak on the camshaft,
- starter nearly dead.

But unlike the first shadow, there was no rust, so I decided to invest in this car.

Here the pics when I bought it :

The seller removed it in order to help the rear hatch to stay opened.
I have one spoiler for spare, but I prefer the car without, it is smoother and the spoiler weights a lot

The man who sandblasted them could paint them with a powder paint and then put in an oven. However there are some rubber around each hole and this rubber would have been damaged with the high temperature, so I painted them with a Minium antirust paint.

I used an antirust "paint" for ''undersealing protection" (like it is written.
This paint reeks a lot, I have never smelt something like that. The odor enter even inside the car for a week.
It is however the best protection I know, my father used such protection for the airplanes.
