Pics as promised, the body is in really good condition. I'm missing the grill but I'm going to use that 1st Gen Accord grill. The car in the background is my other Mitsubishi.

Well I cant catch a break, the truck started blowing white smoke and I think the head gasket is blown. I've never changed a head gasket before, should I try it myself or get someone to do? I planned on swapping the engine but no this early.

I found a Mighty Max grill and a tach that I plan on installing after I finish painting her.

Give it a go, they're pretty easy to change and hard to mess up if you take your time.

Leave the intake and exhaust manifolds on the head when you pull it off. Saves tons of time and prevents the need to buy a new intake gasket.

I've been looking into it, I've heard people say buy new head bolts. Is it ok if I reused the old ones?

The g63b head bolts are NOT torque to yield type (which are the one use type), so it is perfectly ok to reuse them. Make sure you clean the threads really well, as well as the holes in the block. Ensure there is no oil, water, or debris in the holes. Use some moly lube to get the correct torque spec rating.

You do one torque when you install it (cold). And then you must do a retorque after the engine is heat cycled a few times, 100 miles or so. Retorque means loosen one head bolt at a time, by 1/4 turn at the most, and then retighten it in the proper torque sequence.

Next week I'm going to tackle the head gasket problem, but right now I'm attempting the $50 paint job and its turning out better than I thought. I have some runs that I'm going to wet sand out and apply one or two more coats then buff her to a shine. I'm using a electric paint sprayer which helps evenly spray the paint around. I rolled on the first coat and wasn't happy with it, so I researched some more and found a guy who painted his Audi using a paint sprayer. I got mine from Harbor Freight for $15, plus $10 for the Mineral Spirits and $27 for 3 cans of Rustoluem. So you can say its almost a $50 paint job. I didn't paint my fender because one is rusted badly and the other has a dent by the headlight.

Some future plans are to add fender mirrors, custom fender flare and 5 lug swap. Oh and the head gasket.

I've been over at hotrodcoffeeshop doing most of my updates. The engine swap is almost finished, just waiting on two pieces to come back from the welder.Hope to get her running in the next or so.

She's alive, I've changed the transmission two times since I started this swap. First from the original 4 speed manual to a baby A904 automatic transmission, the automatic was to wide to fit in the transmission tunnel but I made it fit lol It constantly stalled whenever I put it any gear so I switched back to the original 4 speed and it drove like a bat out of hell. The 4G67 still doesn't run as strong as I would, it still has high idle and runs rich but I can at least get it on the road.

Glad this build isn't dead! I wish there were more JNPU builds here.
