Well I just had a whole thread typed up, then my Laptop died.... FML
Here we go again, as most of you know, I've been here off and on for a while now.... And my car has been through HELL and back about 4 times now, 2 with my dad borrowing it, 1 with his sister borrowing it, and most recently dad owning it (was supposed to be until I got done with college, but he got arrested and I got it back and now I'm fixing it for the 4th time)
Since dad got it, he did fix the one thing that went bad with me driving it, however the reason it went bad was not my fault (grandfather kept lying to me about when we'd get the half shaft and it snapped and caused the subframe to tear..... Now it has a new subframe and halfshaft)
Now she sits at my mom's house.... Needing a radiator (leaking from the top of it on the passenger side... Stop leak stuff didn't work) still needs a trans mount, and maybe new engine cradle bushings..... Not to mention new trunk lock, a paint job, slight body work, interior cleaned, and PAMPERING.
Trunk is bunged down ATM
So I got to my mom's house and decided to work on at least cleaning her out for until I get the radiator.... So I pulled her into the shade and got to work.
While cleaning her out, I found duct tape.... And I've been wondering how a black 1st gen would look with an offset stripe, kind of like the ACR viper.... So my bored/creative/crazy side took control and used the duct tape to put a stripe.... I think it looks decent, trying to imagine it with an actual paint job, and red, blue, or black for the stripe....
I actually still have it on there for until I measure the stripe.... Plus I'm lazy and that tape was retarded.... It had gotten so hot that the adhesive became melted and both side of the tape where sticky....
Next, I removed my LHS seats (surprisingly they didn't get destroyed) and my center console
Then I removed the bottom half of the dash
Next I took out the rear air duct
Then there's a random photo of all the stuff that had been removed
Next was the headliner.... I'm redoing it in black or dark gray.... If anyone has any info on how to do this, please PM me...
Trunk liner removed
Carpet removed.... Made cuts where each seatbelt was and then a long slit under the trans shift cable and stuff.... Debating on cleaning then dying and reusing, or just buying new.... Any thoughts?
Left over debris in the car from dad using it as a truck
True dual exhaust. No main cat (still has other 2) 2 glasspacks, exiting before rear wheels. Dad did this because my exhaust pipe was already broken
Inside from where backseat used to be
And everything strung out across mom's front yard before clean up and putting it all in her living room (no one's in there right now due to no A/C..... Walking from being in that house for a while to outside where it's 98 degrees with a heat index of 114 seriously feels like you walked into and air conditioned room from outside.... It's insane)
That's it for the pictures today.... I did put more water in and the driver's seat and drive it to the local car wash to vacuum out, but other than that, be expected more updates.... And please leave feed back
