Boo old single stage paint

I'm starting on the bodywork tonight, after I finish the engine mounts, and getting her to run a little better. Right now she's running on no 02 sensor and no knock sensor, she runs pretty good but :-x. I picked her up on tuesday, she had CIS problems, timing problems and ugly seats, which I kindly swapped power recaros
. Now onto the pictures! I'll keep updating as the bodywork progress's this week, ultimate goal is to be finished my h20, as I already am staying at the princess royale, booked my room already. Raceland coils are on their way, tracking says thursday. She has 100+ miles on her, odometer isn't working, at 107k right now.






btw this is what I do at work

Thanks, Raceland coils are on their way! I'm looking at my box of parts from germanautoparts, which includes front strut mounts, rear poly mounts, all new engine mounts, new plugs, wires and a distrib. Only thing I have to decide on now is a color.

Re: (prom king)

Rust is nobodys friend. I was installing my raceland suspension, when I saw a tiny spot of rust under an old repair. The car was hit here prolly about 10-15 years ago. They did a pretty nice repair I thought. I had to cut in a few new patches. This is how I spent my saturday.



I got lazy and forgot to take pictures after grinding a lot of seamsealer to finally make it clean enough to weld... Heres where I finally made my patches.

You can see the racelands in this pic.

Then I just spotted it.
Pictures this morning of the coils


Reverse rake... for now. I need to raise the back, and drop the front

Today I will be welding the patches in that fender. I decided to save the fender because most of the bodywork will be behind the bodykit anyway.
More or less this is how the car will look for h20, as I will run out of time
. I will spend this winter getting it ready for paint and rebuilding the head.

Punch list on saturday included.
1) Install new Knock Sensor
2) Install new 02 sensor
3) New plugs
4) New suspension + Mounts all the way around.
5) WELD
6) Treat control arms and engine subframe with POR15.
7) Get por 15 on my hands because the gloves broke, and now my hands are black.

Who's going to h20? I will be staying at the Princess Royale. Hope to meet some of you guys

Re: (prom king)

I'd definitely do the body kit in black for the contrast - it would be a real head-turner, and it would accent the body design very nicely. Give it a true "euro" look.

Just in time for Halloween too!

Seriously though, I'd do it that way.

Re: (VWplaything)

last night at 10:30 pm. The day before h20, I painted the hood, pass fender, and the flare. They looked like ass, and I didn't want it to look so bad for h20!


LOL the paint doesnt match


See you guys at h20
