new parts update. i now have all my front end bushings and mk3 subframe. gotta plan a junkyard run this friday for the rest of my disc brake setup. next up is por 15 and a welder if i can find a reasonably priced one. also my walboro fuel pump
mk3 subframe before
a small orgy of new parts
i'm hoping to have my front end put together in the next 2 weeks. i need to order my por-15 then i can really take off with progress. i'm gonna go big and pick up a hobart welder soon so progress will slow as i save up funds.
progress from today
chrome is over-rated i'm definately going anti-bling with this build
done. not top dollar but good for on a budget build
kids helped too
I've done some work in the past few weeks.
short runner and fuel rail are fitted up and mounted. 440cc injectors
subframe cleaned up and painted with chassis saver. its just like por-15 only you can buy it at snavely and dosch and its 35$ for a pint.
oh and the new wheel i picked up at h2o from the guys at orchid euro

thanks. heres a little diy for some who might not know. i wanted to paint my distributor to match my engine.
at the bottom there is a roll pin. grab a punch and knock that out
then pull the shaft up through on the rotor side but be careful there is a washer in between the rotor and the base of the distributor. unscrew the sensor and carefully slide that up and out. then mask and paint
brakes rebuilt and installed, new front wheel bearings, 10.1 brakes
Watching. here's to a well thought out theme car!
