now the reason i didnt post any pictures after i primered it was because 1. i forgot to take them and 2. i masked the car up the next day to get the engine bay prepped and didnt want to take off the plastic. so heres the engine bay pics. theres no finished pics of it BUT it is shot. the por15 is glossy until it dries fully so i didnt take pics as i want a real representation of what it will look like.

Are you not test fitting everything and marking the holes and what not you can remove/cover/shave?

Wow you really have that thing stripped down! It's gonna take some time to get it all back together haha. If you're using plastic bags to stay organized then Ziploc should put your bust in front of the corporate office.

PS I hope you plan on cleaning those threads off.

Yes sir. Everything will be cleaned. Yeah everything's bagged and tagged. The only thing that's not are things that broke and things that are scrap.

Wow... awesome build. Only question... why when you we're sand blasting the frame, you didn't get those rust spots on the bottom? Or did those form after your sand blasting and paint?

I didn't sand blast the whole frame or underneath. Just certain areas that would be to hard to rid the rust by hand or with a grinder. Everything else will be taken care of shortly.

Ahh, understood. Can't wait to see this puppy come to life. Such an amazing amount of work. Kudo's to you for taking on an obviously labour intensive project. Most would shy away from this amount of work.

yes sir. is i was doing a complete restoration where every single thing was going to be perfect then i would of sand blasted it. underneath i just want to wire brush to rid of the little rust under there, ill put some por15 and then bedliner the whole underneath. will be perfectly fine for what i want out of this car.

thanks. its been a long road with still a long road ahead. honestly ive learned a hard lesson with this car and its done listen to a single person when it comes to buying crap and even when your gut tells you its good dont listen to it without the logic behind it. i had not a single clue the car was in that bad of shape when i bought it. i just knew about the motor and the "typical" rust i know that these cars had and when it showed up on a trailer the real problems became more apparent.... gotta love clean car fax, good pics, and a ****ty seller who fails to acknowledge things. no more outta state cars here unless i fly to get them.

moral of it all is i refuse to let a molested car stay molested.

i didnt do the body work on that dolly. i just used it for transportation. realistically if i had a perfect place to do it i would of did the whole panel on a laser aligning frame rack but idont work in a body shop anymore.

so what i did was i used 4 jack stands at even heights leveled the car out and i have metal 2x4 beams across the pinch welds from side to side.

none the less my doors were fine on the dolly.... the goal is to get it perfect which is VERY hard.

so anyways heres a SMALL but BIG update.......

1. i sent the coilovers out to tein for a rebuild finally. i bought all my brake hardware and new parking brake shoes for the rears so i could get them all back together.

2. i started getting the remaining 2 hubs blasted and ready for paint. after those 2 i will install wheel bearings, seals etc etc and that will wrap up ALL the hubs.

3. heres the ****ty thing that happened to me......well i understand this is an old car BUT i took apart my entire rear end with no issues. well blasted, painted the whole 9 hards. upon reassembly i was re-shimming one of the sides and i put the retainers in. well i theaded all the bolts in as far as they would go by hand. all of them went about 3 quarters of the way. got 4 of the 5 done and torqued to spec..... number 5 comes the second i touch it with a ratchet to start snugging it up. the bolt snaps...... start to drill it and use an easy out.....well that snapped too....FML RIGHT

well these cars have a VLSD and the diff and everything else is fine, the housing is the problem. with a hardened easy out in there i wasent going to even attempt drilling it out. option 2 would be to drill TINY holes around the broken bolt, extract that entire piece out and weld it, drill it, tap it and back to normal but thats a HUGE headache. option 3 was find a whole new diff case.

well after doing some searching a local just totaled his RSTI. well upon talking to him i found out he had a low miles diff in his garage.. turns out its got like 12k on it from an original 01rs. OMFG score........ best part about it.... he understood my pain with this whole car and sold it to me for $50.00 and meet half way(25 minutes).big life saver and honestly i can salvage a good diff and parts and toss my old case. for $50 it was a headache and royal pain in the ass saved.

Old Rear end(both are from an 01) amazing difference

NEW VLSD Rear 4.11


4. tried out a new technique to fixed the age look of the white resovoir plastic... didnt wanna buy new do i made up a old remedy here. pm me if anyone wants to know it. none of these pics are photoshopped. i did the smallest thing possible incase it didnt work i wouldnt have to spend more money on the expensive resovoirs.

before





after
