UPDATE!!! well guys, im almost finished with the paint, took me so long cause of work and all that. But im very happy with the outcome, being that its my first time using a compressor and a spray gun. oh and i forgot to add.... IM USING HOME DEPOT RUSTOLEUM PAINT!!! HAHA! i mixed 4 colors to get the exact color i wanted, and i thinned it with mineral spirits. Basically like when i roller painted my civic.

I had to strip down the entire quarter panel where that never drying Maaco touch up paint used to be...

Image

Surprise surprise! look what i found under all that old paint

Image

In the process of making it smooth again

Image

And here is how it looks as of today

Image

Oh, and i only spent $40 on all the materials! not including the gun and compressor.

Would be real keen to see/hear some more bout the car. Whats under the bonnet

EDIT: just saw its still got the 6m. Hope that spoilers going back on :P


Those are some nice pics, iv'e never seen those before. yea, ive been looking for that exact lip for some time now but never found one yet, but i have an idea that might work. im gona use a 70's camaro 3 piece rear spoiler as a front lip. Or i was thinking for more agressive looks, use an origin lab s14 bumper, and chop it in half, then rivit it on to the bottom of my existing bumper. i really cant decide which route to go. im thinkin of the origin lab just because its a little more agressive.

Does this engine require more than 4 litres of engine oil ?
