I would make a racing drift ball out of this car. It would look nice. By the way, I am a professional drift car pilot and I compete in D1 championships. Now my main car, which I created myself, is under repair, you can see it on my avatar. But I also have a spare cars Toyota. By the way, check out the bmw sedan prices, a rather expensive drift solution.

thanks
buy and do whatever you want to it

I got my dash painted up. I had to do it twice because I used the wrong chemical in between sanding and painting the second coat... so things wrinkled up and came right off



So my things were taking forever at the powdercating place. I asked if I can help for trade... well now I have enough credit to powdercoat anything and everything I want for years to come.

everything in black is PC, I have also been zinc plating all the hardware


test fit the dash


old vs restored (PC and plated)


so after spending HOURS getting my dash painted up the old fashioned way, I blasted it and got it powdercoated





wiper motor assembly seemed fine but I decided to take it apart, clean it, zinc the hardware and replace the grease. I cleaned the inside of the motor too

before


crusty


lubed


cleaned


new gaskets and plated hardware




installed - it works way smoother now




since I was redoing a buch of stuff anyway.... The original windshield I installed got two huge rock chips shortly after I replaced the gasket. My final straw was all the pitting in the glass, with oncoming headlights I could not see anything in the rain. The entire windshield would just glare

so I decided to POR the frame, for some reason I my primer didnt bond well and there was some rust starting .... while I was in there. I switched over to rostolum satin paint. mainly because each can was way cheaper than what I was getting before. Im paying like $3 a can


stripped




POR


painted




windshield installed


trim installed - one side took me 10 min - the other about 45.... any little bend in the trim and it just makes it super hard to install



finally got around to redoing driver side foam and covers. Them rubbers are so hard to strech. VP did a wonderful job making the foam and covers fit perfectly








today I finally got around to putting everything back in. Pad is just screwed on for now. Ill be gluing it down in the next day or so. I need to do some trimming. All the hardware I touched was replated (by me)

I will if I ever blow though my second one.

Today I blasted that header clean and dropped it off for ceramic coating. Im also blasting ALL my spare hardware (I save every piece of it from my parts cars) prior to taking it to get zinc plated. I have about 4-5? Home Chepo buckets of this stuff. Then it will get organized into hardware boxes that I also just ordered

this is a project on it's own but it's way overdue

decided to clean up the casting marks on the stock and short weber intake prior to getting it coated

on weber I welded up the ONE side for PCV - will be running it to exhaust


I particularly disliked the sharp edges between the two sides on the stock intake


the short weber intake has an AWFUL casting. There were many buggers inside. Outside will take some time to clean up. No need to make it any bigger since it will slow the flow of the 45s (AKA ~38s)

first I cleaned up the sides so I can fit a wrench, now Im going after the THICC casting marks




you can get a feel how much extra material has to be removed - compare left to right (not done yet)

On the first test drive I'll follow you so when the carbs brake off I can pick them up.

Looking good though

Looks nice. Parts made and welded into the ports?
Did you clean the lower part of the port in front of this? I did the same by welding, not the easiest job. Yours look more easy. Good luck, regards, Kay

thank you.

opened up the port and made these, even if weld brakes off it will just wedge itself into the port
exhaust was a little more extensive

need more fiddling but you get the idea
