50/1000 Thread

Instead of a build thread I thought a "Fix It" thread title would be more appropriate since this beater is far from smelling a modification. The inside is pretty much finished besides a few small things I would like to change (steering wheel, floor mats, nicer seats, shift knob.. maybe I'll buy one from Racah15 ). I attempted to get plates for it but it wouldn't pass inspection with the rotted out flex pipe so I decided to order a stainless turbo back exhaust from CM Performance. While I'm waiting for them to deliver it I started to touch up the outside. I put the cladding together and freshened up the wheels a bit. Added black trim, but didn't get enough so I will have to order some more for the bumpers. Other issues before this thing is road worthy are the belts, cv boot is cracked and it needs new brakes.

Before


Primer


After - without clear coat






Bad Shit

Stupid broken shroud - will have to rig something up so it doesn't hit the tire


Stupid belt - ordered all new, should be here soon


Zip tie bumper


CV Boot


A little disappointed some much dumb stuff is wrong with this car I haven't even been able to drive it except to a failed inspection

I guess that is common place in the VR4 world.

Yeah it's common for newbs who buy vr4's not to inspect them properly before purchase and then cry about everything wrong with them.

none of that is too bad, you could just cut the AC belt off if you don't care about having air conditioning for the time being. Crank pulley looks pretty rusty though.

The rest of that is easy shit. Might as well get a new inner and outer tie rod assembly while you have to change out the boot.

No, that's not it at all. It's just that you don't have a clue how to fix a real problem, so you need to buy a car with all the "maintenance records".

GTFO, G.

There a suggested way to clean it up or do you just replace it?

I'd get a new one when the time comes. they are easy to replace though. loosen your belts and 4 bolts and it comes off.

I got her some new shoes, gave her a clay bar, the CORRECT exhaust, Paulo (or whatever the guys name is) gauge setup, boost controller, and other misc....

They look to be the 1st gen Volvo S40/V40 OE rims from the T4 turbo model. I think they come in both 15" and 16" with the correct Mitsubishi PCD, offset and bore diameter (because the 1st gen S40/V40 is based on a Lancer platform).

Damn, this thing cleaned up nice

Erbody be rocking a set of BBS these days. They must giving them shits away with each new galant purchase. Yet, they still manage to look legit no matter how many Galants I see them on. Nice job on the tire selection too; pleanty of sidewall to give the car a nice beefy stance. Looking forward to more updates!

My brother came into town so of course we had to do some wrenching on the Galant. Although I thought it was perfect he has to rip on my work... brotherly love I enjoy the car too much to take it apart all the time but on a lazy Sunday he likes to pull a motor and clean the engine bay.

A few pictures of the transmission and timing belt work that we completed...... sarcasm included.

I thought it looked fine here (before)


Transmission removed:


Transmission before:


Stock Shifting things.....


New belt thing installed that times shit


Transmission all cleaned up


New shifting thing.... I like the color


More new shifting things installed
