Default H6TT Body Restoration

Ok, so the stripdown began in earnest, and the car is now a bare shell...









Removed all the sound deadening material...





Then painted the entire floor with black zinc...





Before spraying on the new soundproofing - DEI Boom Mat Acoustic Barrier - should give an indication as to the intended nature of the car once finished...

All the rear suspension in going to be chromed, same with the front...



Also rebuilt the heater and fan units, just waiting for AC and heater cores to come back from reconditioners...





Will keep an eye on the forthcoming Project Car threads, and will move this one to there once its running.

Good point ^

Wonder what engine he's using. I thought that the H6s didn't respond to well to boost. Of course some people have made some amazing cars with that motor, it just took a hell of a lot of know how.

the NZ's & Aussie's are crazy when it comes to a full on car build. Like the UK... they go nuts...

in the UK they will adapt any body kit they like, for a totally different car & adapt it, mold it, & go nutz.

Audio wise, the UK is fledgling, but the Down Under boyz get just as crazy. They are usually all about flashy & over the top construction.

I rarely subscribe to a thread, but a tear down like this with obvious audio intentions... i can't wait.

Thanks for the feedback guys, you're on the right track...

Basic intentions are street/strip/show, hence lots of chrome where you would (and wouldn't) expect, powder coating, and a suitably loud, but not excessive, sound system with DVD. Its about sound quality, not quantity, hence the soundproofing preparation.

Sorry, no wild body kit, the entire project is themed to be as "factory" as possible, however bringing many of the systems up to 21st century spec by using modern materials and methods - working on late model Volvo's gives me lots of inspiration!

And as for the motor, well many of you should know about my 'other' thread... : )

Hi All, and thanks for keeping an eye on my thread.

So far so good with the engine bay. All sanded and has received a few coats of etch primer, ready for the filler primer top coat. I also need to get on my back underneath and clean up the floorpan and arches so I can put on the fresh stonechip, once I've touched up some bare metal areas with red oxide primer...

The heater and AC units are finished and packed away. I cleaned up all my ECU's and wrapped them in bubble wrap and stored away. I stripped all the doors of glass, regulators, locks and handles, need to clean inside and spray some sound deadener in there; same with the tailgate.

Will get some pics up at some point, pretty busy at the mo. Also, I may shortly be building a WRX race car, with cage, adjustable suspension, big brakes and a few other goodies - will keep you posted!

Ciao for now.

Hi all, finally some pics... I got all my interior parts back from the powdercoaters recently - good having a neighbour who used to work there, all it cost me was a couple hours fitting a stereo to his van!

















Thats all folks (until next time...)

Ciao!
