I just read through all 23 pages. I'm not even apart of AKIC. I just happened to find a post of yours while looking for pictures of engine bays and saw yours when you last redid it and decided to look for any threads you started. This was the first one I found. Very enjoyable to see if from start to finish.

Simply put, nice build.

Started cleaning everything to prep for powder coat using the left over E85 out of my gas tank.





I'm amazed how well E85 works.



Then I pushed out all the bushings.

Caleb….you know they have meds for OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). It's much cheaper than modding….I hear.

I like the speakers. Trying to get decent sound to play with open windows is a waste and the door chime gets old. I am curious how much the sound will carry from under the car. If you have the car up on a lift for work you can also jam out.

i was just curious why. i mean, i dont think your going to hear anything out of those while the engine is running. you could play music from the car when working on it and just have the windows down.

ive seen people play car sounds from speakers. i.e. play muscle car sounds to make it seem thats what was under the hood

Nice powdercoated parts, they really cleaned up well. Those are 2 nice sponsors to have. I have a lot of those whiteline parts myself. Always cool to see the progress on the car. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Dom. They have helped me out so much. Wouldn't be able to do this build on a college budget otherwise.
