We stuked when we tried to change the pedals assembly. sick :@ it didt want to move by any force we applied frown.
After some mins thinking a brilian idea got on the way.
We need to heat and burn the adhesive silicone :), and it worked.

So, after long days searching for parts...

My list was growing larger and larger..

1. Coolant Radiator.
2. A/C Radiator
3. Engine drive belts - they are rare here. frown
4. Engine right mount
5. Engine upper right mount
6. Alternator
7. Timing belt & bearings

I was really missed up .. but No Pain No Gain laugh smile

The only thing i did was brake pipes to connect between my car original pipes and the ABS unit from the donor vehicle..

and few work was done..
