Some updates for you assholes.

Josh and I planned to try to paint my car this weekend. It was going to be a lot of work and josh didnt think we'd be able to get it all done, but we were going to give it the old college try and see if we couldnt get at least the chassis by itself painted, and do all the parts and pieces another time.

i got to his place at about 4pm on saturday to find the car like this, looking like a total shit show, just how I left it.




I quickly dismantled the car and made damn sure people driving my might mistake the neighborhood for a trailer park.



First order of business was to get my roof to look like a roof again. You see, my roof was something of a complete disaster. filling in the sunroof left the whole panel pretty wavy, it took a lot of filler to knock it down, Josh and I were dual wielding 18" sanding blocks with 40 grit for what seemed like a lifetime knocking down mud and recoating. It felt like we were on an episode of pimp my ride, I don't have any pictures from before but after hours of sanding it started to look like a roof again.





after a while we got to a point where we thought it was probably done. we had to re prime/seal the body work, which would also help show us if it was actually flat.




we were both pretty impressed.

Primed and sealed the flares as well.



and then called it a night.



Saturday morning we got up early, rolled the car out into the sun to assess the situation. The roof still looked good as far as we could tell, just a few divots to fill in with finishing glaze. easy peasy. so josh started blocking the whole car down to prep for spraying.




Meanwhile I created a regular Dexter Morgan kill room and we rolled the car back into the garage.



And finally some pictures in the "booth" I think it came out really nice given the space and equipment we were working with. And the roof! we couldn't believe how nice it looked. we were expecting waves for days.





After giving the car a good hour to tack up, Satty and I untaped it and got it back on the ground and rolling so we could roll it outside into the sun to dry. Meanwhile josh started blocking down all the other panels. These pics do the car no justice.







Somehow we still had a lot of daylight left, and we decided to take advantage of it and hammer out the rest of the parts right away.








Sooo, yea. Thats about it, we rolled the chassis back into the garage until next time.



The only thing we didnt get to was the bumpers, my front one needs some fiberglassing and the rear needs to be stripped, it has a lot of layers of paint that are all flaking off. Josh is taking care of those this week.

In other news, satty and I were trying to diagnose what seemed to be a worn out steering rack, come to find out my rack isn't even bolted down... and i've been driving it around like that and did 2 days of drifting like that. Riding the dragon like fucking WHOA.

took this car to a local ricer meet and actually had a decent time, I was surprised to see that there were a few cool cars there. Young Caleb and I went for a cruise afterward and hit some cool street spots out in the boonies. Feels so awesome to have this thing back home in my own garage. Here's some pics that I've seen popping up on the innertubes.






Almost had to choke some random ngas though for leaning on/touching my shit.

This forum is fucking dead as hell.

What are people up to?

I have been chipping away at some random stuff to make the car a little bit more friendly to drive around town, since I do like driving this car on the street.

My front sway bar was rubbing on my oil pan and it was making some crazy clunking noises over bumps, so I decided to remove it, also threw some fresh rotella t6 and a toyota filter before the event. also cleaned up the engine bay a bit.

This thing is a total oil hog. 6.5qt changes from the factory!




My friend Jordan squeezed me in for an alignment as well. Made my front wheels fit worse, but the car feels amazing now.



Final specs:
Camber: 4.3*
Caster: 3.1*
Toe: 0

One of my buddies in CA also hooked me up with some door weather seals since mine are all dried out and cracked. I put those on today and it makes things look a lot more finished I think, plus no more sharp seams. Now I need to find one for the hatch!




I went to DD49 too

Looking good. Hows the car feel? It looks like you're getting much more comfortable with it. When are you painting/flocking the dash? I know you said the current finish is temporary.

Something I'm probably going to do over winter, I literally have no money to do anything right now and I'm currently unemployed, So car shit is going to be on hold for a while. Final bout will probably be my last event of the season.

Sorry to hear about the unemployment thing, I couldnt imagine what the fuck Id do if i lost my job.
Love that youre adding all those street friendly things to the car, it makes it look way more complete.
