    My TE Gemini Sedan

    "I'll just find a totally boring daily driver that I won't spend any time and money on, so I can get the TX off the road for the conversion"

    Yeah right.. :doubt:


    Anyway, here's the new PF50 of doom/rust. I picked this shitter up for $305. It has epically rusty doors but the rest is fairly sweet. It was complete when I got it. I'll use parts from my old white TE to get it up to scratch.

    Starting with the dinged up passengers front guard, I chopped the average condition bottom off and sand blasted it, then welded it to the rusted out white guard.

    Cut all rust out of passenger side sill today, didn't take many photos cause you've all seen it before. Ready to seal and bolt the guards back on soon.




    Broke the sand blaster too, should be able to find a fitting from somewhere tomorrow I hope.

    Found a fitting for the sandblaster and did a bit of work today. There's only a couple of little rust holes left to fix in the drivers side sill then I can get onto some panel work.

    Been working on this after work and on weekends since last update. This car was a mess with rust everywhere, but is slowly coming together.

    Just got some 17x7 +20 wheels which are pretty average and some king springs

    Splashed some colour on after work today. Actual body is a month or so away away from paint.




    Not bad for a $55 base coat (for 5L) + some left over clear (NZD)

    Cleaned, paint striped, cleaned and painted engine today, then threw it in this afternoon. Still need to hook everything up it's just sitting on the mounts at the moment, and a few pieces need painting still. (ran out)

    King springs + wheels, looks a bit better but pretty average still. Might paint the spokes yet, ideas?
