PostSubject: 1992 hatch    February 8th 2011, 12:22 pm

Ok, I figured I can do some what of a thread here now. I own a 1992 hatch that I've owned for like over two years but was a broke little kid back in the day so I haven't done much in the past. I've really been working on my car lately so I figured I'd show you what I'm up to for new ideas and maybe give you guys some.

Here is a pic when I first got it. It had like 190k the auto trans was garbage, the motor was "ok" for the miles, and it needed new brakes and rotors right off the bat before I even drove it. When I did take it for a spin the trans was shiftin like 4 1/2 grand and I was like ahhhh shit lol.


So, I scooped up a trans with low miles, owner said it had like 75k and all the stuff I needed clutch, pedal, drive shaft, etc.
The Hatch was rusty, so I tried bondoing it with no experience with bondo and did a shity quick fix job and raddle canned it some kinda red. I was a broke ass kid so I tried ok.


Once I got that all done, I drove it every day and washed it every other day since I was a porter. You can ask anyone I know, I like this bitch CLEAN. Work at a Mazda dealer.


Ok, now to some other stuff I got a cool as Megan Exhaust thats sounds pretty beastly. pic sucks sry


Found out that my rings where bad and wanted to learn how to rebuild my engine in my old shop class, that was a mistake. My teacher was good but didn't really know this was my first time rebuilding so I messed up setting the rings
and it blew smoke like I was going to kill the neighborhood. but it looked nice lol also got Megan headers


So, I rebuilt again and it ran strong but still smoked a little. I was so pissed but It ran well and it was a little smoke. I guess you learn from your mistakes. Well now I had my buddy paint a sick ass zombie monkey on the valve cover, idk why I wanted it but I liked it lol.


Now, I got some stance GR+pro from TF. I got some pics of installing them but I think their saved on my old computer.
Here it is with some xxr's which the wheels I got from my buddy Mike Madison off this form which ya guys probably know. I got the wheel short after the coils.


Then I wanted to feel a little cooler so I got a hood and some nice pins which where a bitch to install. Got the hood off some dude on this form.


I got a Recaro shortly after which was worth the money because I love corners even more when I'm snug. got it off some dude on this form.

Alright that's it for now will post more later. I do have alot more to show. just wanted to post my favorite pic before I leave it.

Cool little project you got going here and it cleans up nicely. I think i seen it on craigslist tho, Hopefully your not trying to sell it. It seems like you got some time and money put into this thing, keep it. You'll miss it in the summer.

OK, here some more stuff I'm up too.
I got a origin streamline body kit didn't buy it new but it was never used.

I just took off the old bumpers and test fitted it when these pics were taken.






I also picked up these Cusco strut bars not to long ago.





I also got this wink 5 panel mirror that I test fitted. I was a little scared because I'm taller and thought it was going to be in my way but it was good after some adjustment. I got this on amazon for like 15 + shipping I think its a nice little upgrade lol.



My windshield was cracked from top to bottom when I bought it and didn't really care so I drove it for a long time.
Got bitched at by a few cops but never a ticket. The windshield framing is rustier then I thought but there's always a surprise lol I guess I just need cut and weld now. look at all the death on the bottom of the framing, Fuck



Im doin all this cuz im lookin to spray. I wanna do dark pearl turquoise

Why would you cut up perfect metal in the back and install overs? Just put the fronts on, it'll still look good.

Because overs are cool.

Only reason I wouldn't wanna do it is because I cant make up my mind on anything, and its not like you can go back after you cut them...

Who gives a fuck about metal. Cut that shit the fuck up.
I remember seeing this car when you came to buy something or other from me, it was real clean, I liked it.
