Re: [DML] Help!!!! Brought 06859 home today from ebay purchase

Nate - Start with a thorough inspection of the car.  Check everything
from trailing arm bolts to light bulbs.  If you don't have a parts manual,
check out the DMCH website to see the pictures.  Make a list of everything
that is missing or doesn't seem quite right.  Be critical.

Once you have the list complete, start with safety items first like suspension,
steering and brakes.  Then move to the driveability issues.  It's always
better to have a car that you know will turn and stop before it goes.

Throw in some of the easier and cheaper cosmetic fixes just because 
it makes you feel better along the way.  

Good luck and keep us posted.
