oooooook update time
cut out some rust
replaced with some VW bonnet
fabricated a new peice of chassis rail
flipped it on its other side
sanded it back a bit
flipped it back over ...again
ahh the good old toyota echo, renowned for its saftey and looks only an old lady could love, few people know that they also make great suspension braces for nissans
see, told ya
primered the belly of the beast
added some skid plates to the castor arm brackets
and then i sealed it all up to stop rust and that damn smoke getting in
well thats it for now, i'm waiting on some etch primer for the engine bay and the interior, i'll prime that up next week and then i'll underseal the bottom as well, all fresh new black, i cant wait, it'll be like a new car! hooray
the only project thread im actually interested in
very nice work!!
superbe boulot !!
nice work in english LOL !!
cheers for the comments fellas, the car is back off its side and back on the castors, it's getting prepped for primer
heres a wee updaye for ya, this week has been bloody boring.....about 150 240 grit sanding disks later the car looks like this and almost ready for a good coat of etch primer for the inside, just gotta get in all the flangey spots with the ol' scotchbrite tomorrow, hopefully primed on the weekend or tomorow night :wink:
dont worry bout the intercooler, was just messin around with a damaged one we had lyin round
i blanked off the a/c holes with a bit of steel glued in with structural glue, this glue tears the steel before it lets go aye, good stuff :twisted:
thats the stage the car is at so far...as you can tell theres a few hours put into this so far aye lol
