Update-

So the car is done bodywork and spray outside, soon to get buffering done to it and ceramic coating. Right now i'm placing back in the tail lights and then start a bit of cleaning by the spare tire part since i told the bodyman i would be doing the interior and the undercarriage myself.

So this is the following task i will be the following to get:
- New Balljoints
- New Upper Contol Arm Bushing
- New Inner and Outter Tie-Rodding
- New Rear Upper & Bottom Bushing
- Respray and Bake Calipers
- Tuck A/C lines
- New fuel lines
- Chase Bay P/S delete Kit
- Gauge Wiring
- ABS wire back in
- Order back a Recaro seat (since somebody stole one of my seat)

Sup Guys,

Back with another update.

So most of you seen the car has been sprayed and such, so what am doing is paint stripping the interior floor to do the same and eliminate the rust, see progress shots here.

Hey guys,

Been a while, got some photos of what i did to venom rear☻

Finally took the ASR Subframe brace and Skunk2 control arms out to install. It was a rainy sunday but i still went and did it cause nice breeze. :D

For some odd reason I could not locate my jackstands so had to resort on using cinderblocks.

Decided to take a shot before i hooked up the right side suspension. The left gave me a bit of trouble since i had washers inbetween the arm and suspension but the right side? Never have i had a smooth installment like that one, it was 7mins for left, right side was 40 seconds and was including on torquing down.

On today's episode

I have commence on Degrease and pressure washing.

So you have seen the bay is stripped out and subframe as well out, i saw some grease and build up on it so decide to hit it with the Purple blaster degreaser (that product and CRC Degreaser is magic in a bottle).

So anyways I started blasting :p and let it soak in while i got the brittle brush and scrubbed at the dirt loosen it up. Grab the pressure washer and hit it hard that it hit any stripped paint and dirt off.

See photos below:

Getting it prepped for spray but may have to disconnect it a bit to properly give it a clean.

So the Alternator and A/C Bracket are in play now. I have the following items prepped for it since i wanted to go to the beach so:

1x Wirebrush
1x paintstripper gel
1x VHT Epoxy Primer (won't be using again)
1x Dupli-Color engine Enamel

For the A/C Bracket
1x VHT Flameproof Primer
1x VHT High Temp Resistant Silver

This is the after shot and what i used to strip the paint off.

It's currently raining at the moment so once it ease up, i can spray in peace and allow the weather to dry it.

M'Yello,

Sooooo yesterday we had ton of rain, was forecast to rain again today but hooray it didnt soooo lets get to progress I did on the A/C & Alternator bracket.

This morning first contestant was the Alternator Bracket, washed it in Ospo yesterday and made it sit and try by itself so wire brush it by hand all what i could and give it a wipe down with a rag and did the first coat of the Epoxy primer.

Now i left and went for a drive to the north side of the island for an hour and decide to come back to finish the job. So the alternator is the first runner up again.

Top of the morning to you all,

Yesterday I got a welder to come and weld the manual bracket that i got out of a manual EK from factory (since mines used to be automatic) on the gearbox side, he was pretty busy yesterday but still found the time to come at night to deal with it so this is 10pm chronicles :D:naughty:

IMG-20211102-WA0080.jpeg


As you see here he was doing a test tac so all is in place and he can really get to work once i moved the bracket out of the way.
20211102_215706.jpg


So this is lastnight before I closed up and went to bed, decide to make it marinate in ospho for the night til I came back in the a.m.
20211102_230108.jpg


So this was 2 hours ago, wire brush it down cleaning up most of the weld spots.

Before
