Heres a few pis from tonights photoshoot:
edit: pics added !
NO BUMPERS =
got in a little collision bunny still ran fine so i drove it for a while, she started overheating and blowing hoses.... i replaced a few of them and then decided it was time to freshen her up !
which lead to this :
in this picture the engine is completely disconnected but the passenger side engine mount bolt is stuck...
iv tried everything and it just spins. i dont have a sawzall so im quite lost, have no clue on what to do
if anyone has any suggestions i would love to hear them :mrgreen:
This is the new engine that is going in (1.7)
i got it off a local dubber for 100$, he told me it was rebuilt and i believed him
i guess well find out, looks nice and clean so im not too worried. i will be polishing the intake and putting a larger throttle body on it as well as adding a snadwich plate for an oil cooler from a volvo or a td golf.
the plan for the bay is to cut off all unnecessary brackets, remove all the unnecessary wiring and tuck it all away under the frame rails. i already removed all the vaccum lines running to the carbon canister and got a throttle body boot with no extra holes. im not going to fully shave it, i just want a nice clean bay that is appealing to the eye.
i will wire wheel the rust and spraybomb the compartment with high heat satin black paint from home depot
Parts...parts....parts. Got some new struts and all new belts along with (not pictured) HD engine mount set which should get rid of the annoying vibrations
Old rusty fenders that were getting lighter as i drove are going to be replaced by these new ones i scored from jesse (thanks buddy)
He also hooked me up with these dope eggcrate style caddy grilles ! as well as a new rad support which will be replacing my twisted (post-collision) support. Its a little bit bent at the bottom on the lip, but i think ill be able to straighten it out just fine
This is what the front will look like when im done oh, oh, am i ever excited??!!! Of course im going to rust proof the support and paint it black.
Thats it for today,
