    Default The Fail Build

    Time after time, i kept telling myself, yup im going to rebuild a sprinter from scratch just the way i like it, when i drive the car people will see my personality through the car, and thats what a car does, shows either your rich, fast, easy going, just dont give a fkcu etc...

    this is my first time building a car from scratch, age 20, as much as i love the ae86, i still dont know much of it at all, i dont pay much attention to this is good to make you drift and this is what not to do and JDM is the only way, blah blah blah, i just love driving the damh old bastard around cuz its a fun car and i like it

    so with that in mind, i have to build one up for ME needs=]

    first thing, strip that hoe, she naked now!!

    this isnt my original shell...my original one had to much rust when i stripped it with my bro, we attempted sanding and grinding out rust but it was obvious we were going to be left with only the engine bay and nothing else, long story short, picked up a rolling shell *my brothers very first sprinter, i mean very first sprinter back in 2000 or something*, and now its my ride

    Sky blue standard colour she came in









    ================================================== =============================

    so thats that.....and today i took a sickie from work, best idea i ever had cause look at it now







    and then after 8:30pm, everything else was back in its place







    sorry for camera phone at night...sucks

    update soon when i get my engine home

    thanks everyone, sorry for late reply, i only plan to update this when there is something worth updating here

    ok so from 7pm - 11:30pm, i spent the night doing my rear guards

    yeah i know camera is so shit, cant really tell the difference but you will when it gets some paint on it, this is not how they finish up, this is just how they start...

    BEFORE AFTER

    i put some 13' with 205 tyres to give a better idea of how flared they are, doesn't justify much since they are small wheels with gay offset


    got some adjustable shocks for the rear from my friend, Koni, used condition, still better then dead standard shocks =]




    engine should be home by the weekend >_<, thanks again and i'll update when something new comes along
