The metal chin spoiler is great!

Looks like the car is really coming along.

Yeah looks better now actually.

More updates, mainly applying body glue to the joints and seams.

This was done by one of the guy in the body shop, but later on there was a pro who came on a freelance basis from 'PROTON' Malaysian National Car Company to do the final body glue application, check it out below.

Hi guys I'm back, the last time I updated was December of 2010, moved to a new job, moving to a new house, so pretty busy for the past few months. So very very sorry if I didn't reply to any of your guys questions, well wishes and so forth. And thanks for all the support and words of encouragement you folks provided me. So check out some pics yeah.

So basically at this stage it is very much the matter of applying anti rust paint actually, and a good one from 3M, when it dries it is a bit rubbery and prevents moisture getting to the metal surface.

Cheers guys, more updates tommorrow.

Hi Raj. Awesome build. Can't wait to see the results. Which shop are you sending it to? They seem to be doing a great job.

Thanks man, ok more update, the fun part starts now, the painting. I wanted an orange color very similar to Repsol Honda MotoGP race bike orange, I like to watch Rossi and Nicky Haydn in MotoGp races. Which they call it Valencia Orancio or something of that sort, the original color code is specific for motorbike paint manufacturer, so I couldn't find the color code on PPG, ICI Autocolor, Du Pont, or Glasurit paint catalog. So I showed few pictures of the racebike to the paint mixer and he gave this three best match he could mix.

Image

Image

I decided to go with the center one, since it looks more close to the repsol color and more vibrant.

Image

Image

Image

Application of the paint officially started

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So thats it so far more update tomorrow, adios.

Regards
Raj

Hi folks more update, since I didn't want to grease and mess the paint, the paint was only applied to the engine bay, once the engine, suspension, and wiring all installed and fixed then the body will get it's glorious orange suit ;)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Basically the suspension side got a dubious amount of Nolathane poly bushes, AE86 TRD Green strut and TRD Blue spring. So for those of you guys were wondering about my wheels, there you go, Longchamp XR4

Regards
Raj

Hi Raj,
The paint job is looking great. Good to see that they properly painted the engine bay. I hope the boot space gets the same treatment. I noticed that they installed the radiator and hoses without much of a cleanup. IMHO, this is your chance to detail the engine and engine bay. I am sure you are going to do it anyway, but just in case. Checkout the pic for inspiration.

Thanks derek, yeah some how it has the age of the car still on it, which shows this is not a show and shine restoration but more a driver.

Ok more update folks, basically towing the car back from the engine workshop back to fitting and finishing up other bits and parts.

I know it's not much, but I'm posting all this office hours so I can't be too long here.
