yoru cars gonna be done before joshs and billys lol
Rushed the bay this week & got it finished. I wanted a textured finish to hide as much as I could and get my car on the road asap I miss the sound of it so much.
Anyways on to the pics, I should of taken a bit more time in a few places but if it bothers me enough it can always be done down the road.
I have to respray my subframe this weekend and finish prepping my windshield frame for paint whenever I get to that. Also want to order a few parts before I put my engine in so hopefully I can do that within a few weeks.
- Order new tie rods, a few exhaust gaskets and the corresponding hardware, brake lines, a windshield and seal.
- Finish the body work on the lower windshield frame and paint it.
- Clean up engine/ trans and install everything.
I'll finish up the Rs's in between everything and order tires once the car has been on the road for awhile and all the bugs are worked out. I plan on refreshing up the faces and polishing everything 100% next winter.
So I ordered some parts from GAP on Friday and today I finished my windshield frame. Really happy with how it turned out seeing as how I have 0 auto body/paint experience. The color seems perfect so far I just want to wet sand it tomorrow and give it a final coat.
Parts came today! Installed some of them plus my brakes and cleaned up the front H&R ultralows.
New ball joints, tie rods, boots, different steering rack(looped), rack bushing, wheel bearings and hubs, strut mounts and bearings.
Still need to install all new exhaust gaskets to go along with my ported exhaust manifolds and stainless TT downpipe then finish putting together/cleaning motor and install it.
Cleaned up transmission.
Very nice progress. I like how the paint turned out for the windshield frame.
Thanks for the comments everyone.
Met my goal of getting the engine in this weekend. I installed all new exhaust gaskets and hardware, TT stainless downpipe, new clutch/flywheel hardware since it had to come off to get the engine on the stand, and picked up some new rain gutter/drip rail plastic clips for re-installation. If anyone has any input on installing them it would be appreciated. On to the pics!
As for pics I only have a couple right now here. I've got a new wheel to put in and a couple of smaller things that I haven't taken pics of yet.
Few progress pics from today. New spark plugs installed. Cleaned up my intake manifolds. Valve cover. Corrado trans brace. 2 New axles installed.
Just waiting for payday so I can buy new brake lines, alternator which I broke yesterday , battery relocation stuff, few misc items from junkyard, and my windsheild seal.
Billy threw his fender on Kind of makes it feel more like a car again, the fenders have been off way too long.
