Vroom

This is the car at its latest stage, I installed the fanshroud I scored off craigslist for 5 bucks and a new fan, old one was cracked and wobbled. I vacuumed the interior to see in what shape it is in and I am happy with it. With nothing wiped down it looks GREAT. Few odds and ends need fixing, radio bezel, shifter bezel needs replacing. Ashtray needs to be fixed, and a few door panel clips are broken.

ImageIn the engine bay some things need to be addressed, battery needs to go in the trunk, wiper motor needs to be wired, oil drain plug is leaking.

Exterior is a MESS. I took the side moldings off and I’m not putting them back, like the cleaner look. All molding and weatherstrip needs change. Car needs minimal body work, bottom of door has a tiny rust spot, some tiny dings here and there, gonna address it all next week get it ready for paint. Decided on Semi Gloss Black with 03 Gloss Black Cobra Wheels. Gonna look beautiful with blue/black Interior.


Hibernation

Well, since November there was no updates…. work was crazy, i lost some motivation on the way and wanted to sell the car but it’s made some progress and I am ready to take a few steps forward. Image

I managed to get a hood off of craigslist… just a test fit.

ImageThe cracked bumper was replaced with this mess, note it is not completely attached at this point and hood is not bolted on. This was how the car sat as of February. Running but looking ROUGH.
