    steelies will probably stay black for the time being. need to get the centrebores machined out and to find some suitable tyres for it first. gonna spend money getting the body sorted first though, so patching up the bits of rust, bogging, primering and pressure pack enameling then i can finally get a windscreen back in.

    thinking of buying an L200 motor/loom/ecu and transplanting that in to get this running and build up the other block on the side. funtimes!

    went outside and did some work for the first time in a little while.

    went and cleaned up a bit more of the rust and cut some of the thinner chunks out around the passenger side bit so i can get a welder in there at some point and put a bit of metal back in. will go buy some putty/bog and fill the smaller holes later this week if i get a chance.

    also flared out the lip on the front guards a bit and took the strut out to see how it'd look with teh 13's on the front.

    thanks man. i really didn't need to buy the car, but it was too cheap to pass up and it serves as a bit of a time waster. hopefully it'll even be cheap transport when it's finally not hardparked in the carport haha.

    also, got some stuff from aaron this morning

    for no other reason than cause it was cheap.


    non-fucked tail light!

    bit of a thread revival, but anyway, got out while the rain had settled today and did some more work on the shitbox

    fixed up the bits of body filler i fucked up last time, so should be all good when i sand it back and prime it ready to paint. then while i was waiting for the filler to go off, i got a little bored and decided to take apart the engine bay further and chip off the old shitty looking seam sealant and give it a good sand in preparation for some paint. i'll probably wash it first to get most of the dirt, then give it another quick sand and spray away.

    anyway, some pics

    just spent a little more time out the front working and cursing that i used too much hardener in the body filler so it set on me after like 3 minutes. then cursing at the seemingly endless amount of sanding. then cursing at blinding myself while welding again.

    cursing aside, it was fairly productive, and i'm just about ready to paint around the windscreen and go find a replacement to pop back in sanded back the lips on the front guards so i can put filler over those and get them looking schmick. started putting stuff back in the engine bay. fixed the drivers door sagging and not closing properly. decided that the seats looked cooler without the headrests. sat in the engine bay and pretended i was a motor then decided to call it a day.

    pics!
    all fixed!


    the back side of the repairs.... :?


    looking a bit closer to where i started


    random shot showing strut brace/bonnet clearance


    how she currently sits


    so, things left to do

    - finish body work (more body filler and sanding, then a fresh coat of paint)
    - install windscreen
    - rebuild motor
    - purchase gearbox
    - purchase battery
    - rebuild brake master
    - vacuum the sanding dust out of the interior
    - reinstall interior
    - get wheels machined
    - buy tyres
    - skids


    oh, and i've decided on a new colour for this. out with the ratty old red and in with a new, secret colour
