^^ indeed.. Getting the dash out of these things really isn't too bad though. It is a pain in the ass to do a heater core though.
I am hoping in the next week or two to have the car back up to the paint booth for blending both sides and doing some touch ups. While it is there hopefully my headlights will come in and my wheels will be that much closer to coming in. I am now searching for 195/40 for the front and 215/40 for the rear right now for the new wheels. I also am going to freshen up the steering in the front with new steering rack more than likely with all new tie rods (inner and outters). I am also going to do the rear bushing in poly with Powerflex's rear bushing kit I believe. After the entire refresh and mounted new wheels go on, I am going to dial in the suspension where I want it and align the car. I am also still talking with a local upholstery shop about recovering both my front and rear seats with red.. I also am thinking about buying the SEM factory quality interior dye/paint in black to do all panels and headliner pieces. I have the black visors, grab handles, dome light and all that jazz already. Just the next logical step lol.
So many plans.. So little time. I am wondering if it will get done before SOWO next year lol
Awesome thread! Completely forgot i subscribed but SO glad I did! Fantastic car man. I'm happy to see you building a beautiful MKIII.
Thanks guys. It will be a little slow going for the next week or so. I pan on hitting the ground running shortly. I have to get a few details ironed out of how it will all play out. I had also contemplated on having the motor and trans pulled before sending it back to paint to go ahead with the engine bay. So much to do lol
Sub'd this awesome build, looking sick so far H
However I have a question or need clarification on something that I may have missed the answer too....
I understand the Airbag light as you are aftermarket...but Why delete the CEL? Why not Fix the problem causing it so it functions as it should, for later on that is ??
Totally makes sense....I figured with your skill/knowledge and attention to detail there had to be a legitimate reason and not like tons of kids do..."im just gonna unplug this so I don't have to see it"..I'm sure you know as well as I do any car no matter what make or model doesn't come with a CEL on from the factory....If its there there is a problem...Kids these days !!!
Cant wait for the final product !!
Haha.. Working on it man. Like I said a little slow progress until I start getting some parts rolling in.
e-codes came in. Small update lol
Ecodes are in and looking good. Still need to aim them, but it is dark and I did this at the house which my garage lighting and outside lighting sucks. I will get some pics of them installed soon.
Quick shot.. Car is dirty and still have adjusting to do on the passenger side light position. Then gotta aim them. Just been very busy at work and with the move coming.
I know what you mean....
Bought this a year ago and after a "FUN" trip to AFGHAN, not to mention 2 kids in school to chase after I'm finally able tear into it at wide open speed but winter is right around the corner and the garage gets cold
I REALLY want to do an 8V_T but I am in love with the sound and potential in the VR so I'm still fighting myself on the "Final" road ill be taking with her..
The day I got her....done a few minor things since then but now she is in construction mode
^^ Looks like a good start man. Good luck
195/40/16 for the front Yokohama S Drives
21/40/16 for the rear Yokohama S Drives as well
Crappy update I know but it is an update.
Sorry I have not updated this in so long. My car has not seen daylight in a few weeks. Been sitting in the garage as I have been driving the truck. Work will begin again shortly.
