Ivan,

 

I'm really liking the finish on your suspension parts that you say have been powder coated black, is the 'stipple' effect is a result of the blasting giving the pieces a textured surface? Any details on what colour the powder coater used etc would be very appreciated, if you can coax the information out of him, the pieces done like that look PERFECT in my opinion, certainly a lot nicer than gloss. Any details would be much appreciated.

What is holding the threaded sleeve onto the strut?

Is it just sitting on there, or do you eventually weld it on?

 

What would happen at full extension of your suspension? (Though I don't expect that would be too much of an issue in this car, not using it for rally etc).

 

Factory weld that used to hold factory spring pearch is whats preventing sleeve from going down any further.

What my powder coating guy is using is eastwood texture finish black powder coat.

Beautiful car!

 

Will the R200 diff be man enough for the power?

 

It should be good enough for a while.

 

Since engine bay is not done yet I have some pics of short block coming together just to keep this thread going to keep myself motivated...

 

This is short block after about 2-3 hours worth of cleaning with paint stripper, wire brush, brake clean, and map gas torch lol then 3 coats of high temp semi gloss black paint. Block looks much better in person picture just came out like poop because of the flash.

For the better part of the past month my buddy Richard has been working on my engine bay. From start to the finish of the whole engine bay shave job there is easily 100-120 hours of labor between two of us. Richard really outdid himself guy is just pure perfectionist! Here are pictures of his work.

Starting to bondo and sand down whole engine bay.
