  1. Just an update that she's been my main ride this entire spring/summer and has been an absolute blast! Thinking of researching something like vintage air? Someone's had to have installed one. Make for a good fall project
  2. So, yesterday was sunny and beautiful, over 60 degrees and had my first drive of the year. Ran her through the gears pretty good, (had 3 offers to sells her lol) than came home and checked my sealant job, spotless! No more cardboard necessary under her spot. Miss driving her! Now it's 30 and snowing with more snow in the next week or so, spring can't get here fast enough!
  3. Car is back home!!! Did some fixing up to get her ready for spring. Resealed the pan, think that's where my oil leak was coming from. I'll find out tomorrow if she's fixed after a nice drive to work. Hopefully no drips when I get back to her in the lot. Install a VW mki front spoiler. Think it cleaned up the front a little. :).
  4. Thank you q-tip and datsun freak for l your responses! Big help for me since I'm going to give auto cross a go this spring. I can't wait! Also going to a road course with her to see how she really does. Can't wait to be able to drive her on a track!
  5. I had it aligned after I installed and set everything up but that was before the cv conversion. Now that I can go a little lower, might just spend the 100 buck to get it done again. Anyone have any #'s for a good road/track set up? Camber? Toe? Caster?
  6. I just fixed a couple glitches. hope it works....lol
  7. Made a video. Hope you enjoy
  8. So the new wheels looks perfect but the tires were a shade to wide, If I go to a down to a 185 she would tuck under with zero issues. So once I burn up these rear tires, il put them on. :) I was rubbing on that little L shaped piece which is the rear door sill. Not too bad but Just enough to piss you off. Lol.
  9. Yours too! What engine are you running?
  10. Thanks edekalil. She's getting there. Need to concentrate on the interior and just clean up the engine bay some more.
  11. Came yesterday!! New rear 14x7(0) to replace the 6.5's. Not sure if I should just pay to swap Both tires over and risk them not fitting or just one to test fit than go back for the other. Lol. They should fill in the gap and give me the staggered look I was after. I might sell the pair I have left over after I'm done setting/figuring this out. :).
  12. They're not too bad, i need to tweak the hood for sure. I took out the "lift" washers that one of the PO had in.
  13. Just got her back together. Really couldn't be happier. More pics in my build thread.
  14. Small photo shoot in the back yard. I have to say it again.....I absolutely love it. The entire surface is nice and smooth, unified and beautiful. :)
  15. Thank you! I have to be honest, I was really worried that it wouldn't have enough shine to it but when I walked through the hanging tarps and saw it, it came out better than I thought it would. So glad I stuck with my guns, my bro in law was begging me to have him go through all the body work and make it "like" new again. It's only "original" once and I wanted to protect that quality and character she's aquired over her life time.
  16. So happy with how this came out!! Looks amazing in person, still full of dust, waiting on the new a windshield. So stoked!!!
  17. Waiting on a new windshield... Hoping by this weekend.
  18. Thanks, it's at my bro in laws shop, not sure what # sand paper or by hand, could find out for ya though.
  19. It Could always be polished to shiny. ;)
  20. Wet sanded and Matte cleared! Can't wait to see after it bakes.
