You're not doing it right. I've rebuilt carbs and polished heads at work. You just need to be sneaky...

Got back in town around 3:30 this after noon. While gone, I picked up some starter wheels (18x8.5 rotas but I needed something for now) this weekend in NOVA but missed Mav1c this morning, so no swaybar or endlinks were picked up. Dropped off the old motor, trans, front x-member(with all the dressings) at storage, picked up my full sti front x-member/rack etc...installed it. Started sorting out engine bay wiring and spent a few more moments with the wire wheel.

Sorry Duncan, still no camera.

kinda hard to sneak and entire car into work that will be sitting on 4 jack stands.

I do however sneak things in for mediablasting and hot tanking.

Since you won't post pictures, here's a shot of my completed interior to motivate you.

Let me know on the lexan tomorrow. If I don't hear anything by that evening I'll go ahead and get some from NORVA Plastics.

Actually, I've found ATF to be one of the most badazz cleaners EVER when it comes to grease, and associated grime.

-Adrian

p.s. Somehow, with the sort of technical posts I often make, I wonder if someone's going to ask me if ATF also works with dissociated grime. The answer, of course, can be found on the backside to any schematic diagram for a Turbo Encabulator. (it's behind the reciprocating dingle-arm)

Your hydra WOULD return soon if you'd ever email me the list of stuff you need.

Until then, it's sitting right here.

Ship it to me. I'll make sure it gets installed in a vehicle that will move under it's own power.

I still own it!!

Got some sound deading removed and started wire wheeling out the driver's compartment...still gotta finish up with the trunk area. It is being really really stubborn.

Heat is your friend. That, and a good air compressor or electric grinder with wire wheel attachment. The dewalt twisted wire wheels they sell at home depot will make short work of it. They're so strong they'll even pit the metal a little if you "lean into it" too much.

well, I have the same craftsman compressor you had and my short snout craftsman die grinder and wire wheel but I think a better wire wheel is in order. I did however finally but out the propane torch to help last night. Just got too late to keep making noise.

I'm stopping by perry on the way home and putting together a customer's shortblock tonight (assuming clearances are good). I'll be busy until sunday and longblock assembly starts next week...once that's gone, I'll be back on my car.

Thanks for the tip o na strong wheel to use. I miss the pneumatic Mac wire claw thingy I use to use. It was awesome!!

Actually, cold works much better than heat. I did mine in the winter when the car was 25 degrees F. When it's cold it gets very brittle and just breaks off in nice little chunks. I used a hammer and a putty knife and the whole car took about 2 hours.

We live in southern Virginia. 25F is a very rare occurrence. Only way to get the cold method (which I agree works a little better and is certainly cleaner) is dry ice. I don't like dry ice just because I find it's a pain to have to run out and get it. I'd rather just walk the 10 feet to the garage and start.

Umm I just walked out in my cold garage and used a hammer and a metal putty knife and the **** came right off in huge strips. It was way ****ing easier than the heat method, which I believe is a joke.

Yep, cold and a metal paint scraper works for me. I've got the trunk done, under the back seat and about 1/4 of the floor. Seems we're doing the same job at the same time. I think you'll still finish first though

I've been a part of removing sound deadening from several subies and hondas. This is buy far the most stubborn one ever...not sure if its the fact that its a 13 year old car or what?

regardless, heating the entire garage (gas heater and sealed floor will easily get it to 100F) up worked really well for the fronts, they litterly peeled up!! Where the previous owner has spilled some kind of oil in the trunk, turned all the wheel well deadening into goo. It wiped off with a rag. The section around the gas tank access and back in the trunk is giving me hell. That's when I broke out the torch as dry ice DIDN'T help. So didn't get much done last night. Besides, I had to clean for some out of town guests this weekend (reason for no work this weekend). I hope to be able to get back to work sunday afternoon/evening.

I always used dry ice to get up sound deadening material. Just lay it on it for about 5 mins then it chips off really easy.
