    Finished bay! Need to sand and polish soon I learned how to sprayūü§© after sanding coat after messed up coats. Single stage came out really nice. These pics do NOT have good sunlight. They'll get better soon! and I got a lot of interesting content soon. Anyone have a source for z20e rods? Or else I'm gonna do another stock L

    definitely using longer rods for a better CR. If not stock compression, I want to get the motor to 9:1 or something close. I don't have any spare cranks from a different motor and not willing to get one yet. Any piston/rod combo I can use with the l20b crank will be in my best interest

    Fast forward another two weeks to yesterday, and I layed down some primer. I got better and the hang of it! No runs and minimal orange peel. My compressor would run a bit low on pressure causing my gun to start spraying a bit funky like a spray bottle. But, for the most part I sprayed a pretty decent 2 coats or primer. Tadah. definitely not showcar clean but my harbor freight gun and I gave it all we got. PS no point in cleaning them, I bought like 3 already. Picked up some 637 EggShell Off White today at the paint shop. Some single stage 1k laquer paint like the original formula. I want to repaint my front valence and under sides soon. You guys will see the results tomorrow hehe. But as of next paycheck, I'm going in full blast this summer -Front suspension parts all new again -L20b stock rebuild -N42 manifold that I have yet to cut up and weld. Someone please PM me if your willing to get paid and do it -stainless t3 manifold .... exhaust, intercooler, megasquirt, etc... little guy things

    This is my first time using a spray gun :lol: and doing a shaved bay. but fuk it rite, I wasn't gonna stop after all that stupid sanding and resanding bare metal escaping the rain. Sorry if I'm moist guys, the hard work just makes me feel so accomplished. And jesus it's crazy to know that people do this for a living! Fuk engine bays!

    So many holes. So many sanding. So many pain. But, so many pretty now. My first coat I didnt know what I was doing. So many runs everywhere and orange peel for days. A LITTLE discouraging, JUST A LITTLE. But, yall know me, I learn from the mistakes and experiences. So I ended up sanding like 3 coats of sealer over and over.

    Yeah I've been researching a lot, I know exactly what you're talking about spreading the first layer firmly. I meant my car! :rofl: She's my baby. ‚ÄčI just ended our relationship with my last girlfriend as a matter of fact cause I wanted more time to do the things I need(my car).

    ‚ÄčFirst round of filler, just to cover up the holes I welded and grinded. https://drive.google.com/open?id=18Hpt5Ac3datzsElzYCYlqQ3hYhbNTw_q https://drive.google.com/open?id=1q_duyQJTfi0_EIijQcjkTu4WC98ia5CR https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Bigr6MpZr6g859Utrb8JfblsOlG_Xco7 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pb2PSFFvNe8DiswOef4tQvzidd3ApIvh

    So here comes the return, I'm focused on school and getting my girl back. Going for a wire tuck and freshened engine bay harness. Plugs were bought from vintage connections, and wire is all 14-16 gauge. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ux6yVK8iWUkx8MzxJk0TSxvr_kG5gjKL https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WITj3eVhHKMPk25KChPphRonPeNjxbwi Since I had to pull the drivetrain, it was finally time to start the clean looking bay I wanted. Everything's done by me at home, not perfect, but it's all going to be perfectly imperfect. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GWmRaPhe7OV3fEF6yES05aTdbOO4DCSM https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K4h-Z9m7PDEJycVshhNj8ouL0-DN1Xgt/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/open?id=1eps1IpgFI3OCxNQIN9Z2oMvihe76Ose_ So the battery tray delete was a little messy. Before I knew it the seam and drilled spots welds were 2 inches wide. I should've welded up the seam with a copper background. I cut out a big patch I could make just patch up with a plate. Bent, hammered, and more hammering using the tree branch contour. https://drive.google.com/open?id=132GKNYVcj031dE_u3Kxcgq1Vu0KtTw7D https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HsiyCKZhQ8gK3CYCPY1z7vyOxj4CzXEo https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wGjtxvtZ3GZXqVQG9wWeFcSgcEB0o0Ob https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bC7dPMcUzQXkNNkFaAFE9IUcWU-4A8ot

    Hopefully I'll have more than I'll ever need to finish my car soon if all goes well.

    Sold my pistons. I have to sacrifice this project for an opportunity I'm giving myself. Hopefully I can return to my car during Christmas the soonest or maybe next year :( I miss my car so much already just hearing the low timing backfire all the left over gas :((( , my subwoofers, and how awesome it is! Damn this thing was my life. I literally feel incomplete. I think about my 510 every single day and dream about my plans that are ahead. Tribute to my 510!

    I don't know what the point of this debate is anymore, honestly. I would daily my 510 16 miles to work, most of the drive on the freeway. I'm pretty sure I would be "boosting" most of the commute. I never said I wanted a low compression motor, go back to the PM's and read what compression would give out from L20b rods and 32mm Flatop SR pistons. Just going by your advice. You said 8.55

    All depends on the size of the turbocharger, idk what you mean most of the time we drive off boost. About all modern cars spool around 2.3k RPM that come stock turbo. I usually drive above 3k no matter what I'm doing, idk how low you keep your motor.
