Sup Guys, i had an old build thread, but decided to ditch it and Make a fresh new one.. Here's my progress so far...
The Day i bought the car ( cell phone pic not much into photography)
Bought her for $1500 =)
Took her home and took more shots
Those military stickers on the front window are gone..
Then the work began..
She had a bad oil leak the previous owner said..Which it was, Come to find out he never tightened the oil filter when he was done doing his oil change thus major leak... Bought a new filter, tightened her up..No oil Spill =)
Next were the rear suspensions. Once again the previous owner installed Tein springs and didn't put the strut assembly back together properly thus causing this to happen...
Here is the passenger side strut which was also improperly installed..
So what i decided to do was since the struts where so bad when i took them apart what i did was go to the junk yard and i bought two rear suspension arms (they wouldnt sell me just the spring and strut) for $200.. so i remove the suspension from the arm and took off the stock spring and replaced them with the Tein's (i dont know what size spring they are)
Next up..The cracked header sighhh..
So instead of replacing the header my neighbor brought over his Welder and we welded the crack shut.. She no longer sounds like a chopper when i rev her..(photos of the weld soon)
Next on my list are new brake pads, new battery, new rear light bulbs...New Tires.. yes Im riding 18's i don't really care what you guys think...Building a new floor for the trunk that will be finished soon with pics as well..That's about it, i might buy jdm visors and a rear visor too..so stay tuned folks..
Maybe One Day...( o yea i removed those ugly ass tails the previous owner had,, took off the rubber weather stripping he had on the door jams, and i banged out the dint that was on the door for the gas tank)
