Finally a Car build thread for me :P


Recommended Posts

Your motor is a 99-00 ls1 not a 2001.

Dammit it Mike!! sorry a typo, thanks for the correction. Its going in stock for the most part right now. Glad I went with the LS1 instead of the truck 5.3 motor.

 

mmmmmm iam so jelous I think my car is going to become a parts car for a nicer one sometime!

 

Well its taken a while and a lot of hard work to get the parts that i have so far. I still have at least another 4k worth of stuff to do to get it on the road.

Okay, so still haven't been cleared from my 3rd knee sugery to start working on my car. Its okay I guess, lacking garage space to start doing much anyways and build time will be cut down just because I have so many damn parts now. One thing not pictured is my JCI motor mounts modified for powersteering rack. ZG flares and BRE spoiler are on their way, trying to decided if I want to do an G-nose with an MSA air-dam underneath. There is a purple one I remember seeing on here once possibly from RacerX or Alan.

So its been like christmas around here new parts almost everyday, celebrated the 21st b-day in vegas, and got a pretty cool Datsun racing jacket albeit in a Nissan Symbol :P . Color has been changed from Subaru blue to, Corvette Z06 Millenium Silver. Enjoy the pics

Tyson,

 

Love the jacket/shirt--custom, eh?

 

Love the hood vents. Where are they from, MSA?

 

The mirrors also look good, especially black like that. Are they internally adjustable? I'm trying to figure out what the gold rod is at the base.

 

Nice plug for Austin and his kit. He should advertise more.

Jacket is from ebay, or so I think I've seen it there once before. I don't know for sure it was given to me by my bro's GF.

Also from ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230020415772&ssPageName=MERC_VIC_ReBay_Pr2_PcY_BIN_IT&refitem=230015649851&itemcount=2&refwidgetloc=closed_view_item&usedrule1=CategoryProximity&refwidgettype=cross_promot_widget

 

Thick metal grate and urethane or plastic. I was worried about it the quality, the seller kept me updated frequently and I had the things within a weeks time.

Not pictured is a base, which I believe the gold (not real gold sorry) rod goes into and has a spring in. Which keeps the mirror base from being broken if pused over. Like a break away setting, but it would spring back into place.

 

Yes Austin should advertise more as well, for the price it worked out well, and is a VERY nice.

Haha, well my brother is 5 inches taller than me (he's 6'6") and about 80lbs heavier. Not the guy i want to mess with. However her cute little sister was there, and I contemplated the kiss.... :P No prob on the info, its HybridZ, I don't know what I'd do without some of you guys sharing.

 

On a side note, any body going to the IRL Race this weekend in the Sacramento ish area?

Just a Small update. Got my paint guns and air powered body sander. The Guns are StartingLine by Devilbliss, they look to be good quality and will work out well for my first set of guns. The only downfall so far for these guns is that they require 13cfm @ 30psi. They body sander, well is just cheap mostly plastic, had to use the vise grips to be able to get the pad holder off the first time me and my dad had to literally use our entire body weight to twist it off. Also the Air inlet plug is completely made of plastic, so I'm going to get the right size fitting and NEVER remove it because I don't strip it. It was CHEAP and I got a CHEAP product (go figure) but it will serve its purpose of stripping, and occasional sanding. Now to the pics:
