Nope just worked there. All these projects I haves posted over the years using the Girodiac name were my personal projects done at home. Just posted them under their name to boost image. They really didn't have anything to do with any of my projects.

So the GC8 Project is off to paint which is going to give me a couple weeks to give the forester some love. Spend about half the day after the GC left getting started on more chassis fun.

Started be removing some of the undercoating:





So far from what I have removed (about 30%) its about 8lbs. So when its all finished the removal of the undercoating will drop about 30lbs but the real reason for this is to get at the panels to stitch weld them. So a couple pounds added back in but for a rigid chassis its worth it.

I finished the day off by busting out my new spot weld removal bits and they work great. Got a few of the pieces off that I will not be neededing:



Just in this pile here is 19lbs of un-needed metal. I have at least another 20lbs to pull off the passenger side and then I will be removing their drivers side counterparts and with the addition of the pieces of the floor I marked for removal it should get me a total of around 80-110lbs dropped off the car. This does not include any of the front core support that has yet to be removed. Willain at TSS-Fab has started work on my cross-members. I will be getting the full monty of stronger lighter crossmembers so once those are here I can remove the suspsnsion and drivetrain pieces off the Legacy and get this back into a roller. By they time the GC will be back so I will be pushing hard to finished that so I can get a payday and start ordering more parts and materials.

More updates soon to follow.

Purple Anodized Hat looks hot too. We did these earlier this year for an EVO 8/9:



Johann @ Girodisc
Those are some beautiful rotors! Curios though, you dropped 27 lbs off each rotor!? 27x4=108lbs total of rotational mass, thats very impressive.

It's only temporary, until he trades it in for an STI.

I'll have some updates posted up tomorrow. I need to remove the parts off the legacy tomorrow and Friday because my kick ass TSS goodies will be dine soon so I can turn the fozzy back into a roller and work on the interior bits. Ill have many more updates next week. Also got my v-mount kit so I'll be posting pics of that soon too.

Okay I finally have time to get to this. So I got some more of the undercoating off.



Managed to cut out the pieces in the floor I wanted to remove.



So far we are at 86lbs for the scrap metal that has been removed off the chassis.



Tomorrow I am going to take as much off the Legacy as I can so next week when I get it back into a roller and off its side.

Hey all. So after a couple days of some of the most tedious work I will be doing on this project the underside has been stripped and the chassis stitch welded. A nice coat of gloss black paint finishes her off. Bring on the TSS- Fab Parts!

Some high temp thick engine paint. It acts like sprayable POR15 and its what I use to paint most of my engine bays and engines with. Good stuff.

Okay update time. I have been having some problems with my photobucket account but it has been resloved so this will be a big update.

We'll start with the more lightening. The front doors w/ glass weighed in at 81lbs each. Very heavy. After some magic with the cuting disc and saw I managed to get that down to a respectable 20lbs a piece.



Hinges and latch still installed so tghey function as working doors. The rear doors and hatch are a different story. Because of my class the doors must function as doors but they do not need handles and latches so the can be bolted to the chassis. So I removed everything to make them a skin and just kept the mounting point for the hinges so once unbloted they could still swing open. The rear doors came in at 55lbs each stock. Dropped that to 7lbs a piece but I still need to add a pound of lexan.



The Hatch came in at 57lbs and I got that to 12lbs but this will get some lexan as well. So total weight savings give or take a pound after lexan will be around 259lbs total.





Not to shabby. Still have another 40-50lbs from the chassis to pull so it will be on a nice hefty diet. Not to mention everything thats going back in is getting the Atkins aswell. Wiring, dash, seats, battery, crossmembers, driveshaft, brakes, engine parts etc..

And she still looks pretty much stock... for now lol.
