Almost done with her temp attendance of team JSB. Just gonna take a look at a sticky caliper and take it out to see if the new subframe is noticeable. The main reasons were for space and weight so any handling will be a sweet bonus.

Well I got my sticky caliper cleaned up, subframe all retorqued. The results are night and day. The car is fun to drive again.

Hood cleaned up, and the roof sprayed. Looks about as good as it runs now. It's no show car, but it's not a race car either.

Quoting coyotes:

what are your plans to fix the roof clear coat? I have some peeling clear coat on my car also... not sure how to fix.




Sorry, was on a roll and missed you question. I just went the easy route and used Plastidip. If it was a better chasis I'd take the time to take it Down and repaint it. But for this car, and any daily driver on a budget, Plastidip works fine and looks a hundred times better

I would just do that too if it was my roof, but my clear coat is peeling on the passenger side rear panel, so plastidip wouldn't match it very well.

2 tone it at the body line. Just run a tape line from the corner light back to the taillights and call it done. Or you could commit and do the whole car.

Took her out for a spin and wasn't getting heat. I was pretty sure I left the heater core intact, but it was possible the hoses were just looped. Well pulled into the garage and it was about half empty. I remembered having a slow leak around the t-stat, so I filled it up, and it instantly poured all over the ground. Found a blown rear freeze plug :-(.

Ran and got a new plug, and that fixed the leak. Waiting on the permetex on my Tatar to dry and I'll take her out again tonight.
