Since your in there welding and cutting now would be a great time to add some hole for some real speakers in that rear deck.

Yeah. I figure if I'm gonna be stuck with this car forever, I might as well fix this too since it won't take much effort/time. Once this section is sorted out, I'd like to coat the whole bottom of the car in some kind of undercoating / rust preventative coating. That way if I drive it this winter it won't get destroyed instantly.

Wish I added frame rail reinforcements before I did undercoating. Otherwise undercoating is a great idea.

Thanks! I'm all pumped to paint it now and then pour water all over it to see if it leaks!

Well that was a pain in the ass. I finished everything, primed, painted, etc. And the paint didn't match quite right. I have no idea why. So last night, I did it again with brand new paint, and all seems to be well now.
Next:
1) Reassemble
2) Wet sand
3) Buff
4) ???
5# Profit. (lol, nope)

Update:
- I don't even want to know how many hours I have into this car.
- I now have a 4WS rack for this car. Finally.
- I installed 1 Evo 8 front strut last night. I'll do the others this weekend if I have time. My new setup is GVR4 upper mount, cut off 3/8 coil from evo spring, and welded a bracket to the back for the brake line.

Quick update: all Evo struts and springs are now installed, but I haven't driven it yet. Maybe tomorrow?! I can't wait to see how it feels!

Evo 8 suspension with Eibach springs is nice! The car needs an alignment badly though!

Still nobody wants this thing, so I painted the front metal valance thing that goes under the headlights, and the front bumper.
