Went ahead and painted the rear muffler section black. Turned out really nice. The exhaust is not bolt down. Just hanging up there by the rubber hangers. Fitment looks great so far.








Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up. Whiteline dealer. Vibrant dealer.

Didn't have alot of time this month to work on her. Been busy. But I did work on her this past week

Replacing the valve cover gasket. It was leaking. The engine looks clean for the miles. Finally finished replacing the exhaust manifold studs. Got most of the turbo back on. Going to pull the oil pan and but a new one on. So I had to take the front transfer case off. Went ahead and cleaned it up and painted it. Still have a ton of work to do.






Front diff.

You are disgusting in your fanaticism to cleanliness and I love every second of it. Car looks amazing and I'm sure is going to be perfect when done. Is that the factory intercooler system? I've never actually seen one and it makes me giggle.

Update:

Starting working on the car again today. Got alot done. Stripping the front suspension. The plan is to drop the front subframe. Replace all bushings. Install the lower control arms, rebuild steering rack, Whiteline swaybar, BC coilovers, new brakes, new oil pan and new motor mounts. Lots of parts going to the powder coater and going to finish under coating the car.
