Looks nice, but why not just buy the fittings that thread in?

At the moment I could only find -8 fittings available. That and I have about 20 -10 in overstock haha.
Also I've found that -8 an doesn't provide enough volume for road racing applications. So we run a minimum of -10 on anything that will see track days.

My engine guy told me I was wasting my time because the port hole in the filter housing outlet was so small that it didn't matter. I figured the extra volume was a benefit anyway. Nice work.

The factory housing ports are almost exactly the same size as a -10 fitting. Anything bigger and I would say its a waste if you don't enlarge the ports.


-8 fitting ID

-10 fitting ID

If I can save you some grief, please install your oil pressure sender on the end of a flexible an line or just return your electric oil pressure sender from Autometer. I've had two sending units die out. The first one they covered under warranty but the second was past warranty and they are not cheap at $70+ for a replacement. They only last about a year in the OFH. I was told doing research that they need to be "isolated."

Thanks for the info:) I was thinking about that today and since I have good poly mounts I should relocate that unit to a flex line and rubber mount it to the body. Your post has solidified the choice to do that. Haha thanks!

How did you shorten the rear bumper? Did you keep the bumper and just cut down the cover? or remove it all?

I cut down the bumper cover, then cut the lower half of the steel bumper off to clear the lower part of the cover.

do you have any close ups of how you did the wheel well to attach it there? I have the bumper off already and have just been chickening out because I want it to look really good.

I had to cut the side brackets and move them back to accommodate everything being shifted forward. Then welded back in place. I don't believe I took many pics due to being in a hurry to get the car out of the shop. But I will dig around.

Well it's body and paint time. My only goal for the car right now is to get the main body/chassis painted. I will be able to paint the rest at a later date.

Started stripping all the trim and panels off today.




Finally able to kill the only bad rust on the car.



Bumper and trunk removed. Ready to be cleaned.


Cleaned and degreased




Let the sanding begin!!

Thanks guys this is my first time trying to do body work and paint it the right way. "As much as I can with no paint booth"
And I do really like the evo wheels on this. Plus they are inexpensive:)

Well spot filled pin holes and block sanded. Also sprayed with another coat of filler/sealer primer. I have hopes of this being the final wet sand before one more coat of sealer. Then onto color!!!



Pulled the doors of and time to clean and scuff the jams for primer.
