Yea, that is a load of work.  Add more effort if you are in the rustbelt states like I am.  I don't even fuck around, I torch damn near EVERYTHING before trying to remove it, if its underneath the car.

Congrats on your work thus far, that is one hella sharp looking car.  Its good to see someone take something abandoned, that they know not much about, and come along as you have.  Its only the beginning, too, right?

Ok, so this week begins the major visual upgrades.

Mounting the SE kit

Painting the car  



---------------------------------

I found the easiest paint for a newbie like me to shoot.


Mo' fuckin tractor paint  

Requires NO primer.

Its cow shit, acid, misc farm chemicals resistant.

Premixed UV protectants

Rust preventive

and dirtttttttttt cheap. (28 bucks a gallon at the local tractor supply!)

With the harvest international color (Close enough to blood red), I will be adding a flattener and just a bit of black flake.

The paint can be applied to bare metal, or old paint. The surface just needs to be extremely clean of course, and it needs to be scuffed for it to stick good.

Lol.  I worked at a farm/mass discount store for years, and shot more than once with that paint.  I'll tell ya tho, it fades quite quickly.  Mid red to pink ~1-1.5yr.  Clearcoating may help tho, never had tried that.  You can always scuff it and shoot it different later tho!

Did you check out Silvia Loves thread?  He regular rattle-canned it, and it looks beautiful.  Its all about the prep work b/n layers, and the finish prep.  Thats probably what I'm going to do.

Keep us updated, with pics too!

If you save up a bit of money (about $800.00) my buddy dave can probably give you a real paint job (the original color) He can do a decent single stage paint job cheaper.
quality > quantity

Ok so I couldnt get everything knocked out that I wanted to this weekend because of some heavy rain.

I undercoated the wheel wells and started on my paint, and finally got the bumper mounted up but I need to finish the zip ties, and put my grill back in.

Dont talk shit about the stitches in my bumper. ITS CHEAPER THAN A BUMPER.


The paint is John Deere Blitz Black.  5 coats of it, It would be completely two tone, but your not supposed to paint in the rain lol


The reason it looks stripy is I just got done painting the middle.

Looks flat now


I will be fixing the gap between the the bumper and the center piece with some thin rubber riveted down.

After I pulled the bumper I could see how badly the bumper support was bent from whatever the previous owner hit.

Engine runs on its own now. I need to re vacuum every single line. All that is hooked up right now is idle air and the intake piping, everything else is just blocked off, so obviously it runs as good as a hooker in heels.


I have a totally awesome front oil seal leak (On the crank/oil pump), is this a bitch to do? I imagine it wont be to bad.

Tonight, everything should be vacuumed right, and tomorrow it should be timed. I cleaned the hell out of the engine, so this leak might have been there all along, and all of the surrounding grease was keeping it plugged

I used  a grinder with a scratchy pad type deal. Just be really easy and it turns out good.

-----------------------------

1QA springs are here... and with them.. comes the "low sauce" I needed so badly.

>.< Bad week.

Plus I killed my clutch today.. I have to find a way to anti sag my lip before I drive it, I am still thinking adjustable splitter. The lip scrapes on almost every little bump. I am thinking of raising it an inch. It just feels un stable (Then again I do have blown shocks).

Bleh, more delays.

It buffs to a semi gloss finish.

The black has held up freakin awesomely. Made it through alot of bird poop and elbow grease with no fade.

It stays smooth and doesnt rip or peal. Sticks very nicely for what it is. Its A+ for a beater paint job in my opinion.

Finished the paint. It looks like ass , mainly because I was ready to drive it and out of money for painting supplies. The important thing is that it looks better than it did and its weather proofed.


So I got the car bonded and insured, and friday I get the car theft inspected, and titled.

I drifted a bit this weekend in my neighborhood* on some extremely low traffic roads.

The 50/50 spring rates feel great, and even with completely blown front shocks the car handles decently.

I have no ebrake so I cant do anything but clutch dumping and weight transfers. Which I prefer over the ebrake anyway. There is NO SUCH THING as a CA20 power over lol

The CA20 is slower than a 1990 jetta with 4 mexicans in it. (That was with crappy gas in it though, so who knows.) lol

The Ca20 will chirp the tires through third. (I was surprised).


Stop signs are not cones, they do not "kill" easily.  

I love this car.

This car isn't too difficult to drift without power steering.

Car update.

New ball joints.

300zx Sensatracs (Handle 300lb springs very well)

Now I have a full blown ghetto front setup. Its nice and cheap as fuck.

Fixed bump steer issue by playing with different stabilizer bar heights.

Car update:

Dead raccoon > Front lip

Car absolutely kills on the twisties.

Have a set plan for the car now, it will be street legal but I want this piece of shit to be at its full potential.

I will be gutting absolutely everything. Just a driver seat, a cage, and instrument cluster.

Cammed and built N/A KA

Welded differential

Remove all non structural sheet metal.

------------------------------------------

I will start all this when I have another daily.

I am deciding between these.





I am leaning towards the miata, for accessibility and cheapness of suspension goodies.

Subaru is second.

914 with a scooby swap is the more expensive, but way more awesome option.

Nice, so you're looking to build the exact same thing I am!

MIATA all the way man.  Don't look back!
