      double update: fuck sunroofs


      flimsy fiddly pieces of shit



      anyway headliner's in and quarters are in and rear seat is in






      this panel is being a little shit and breaking the clips that hold it to the rail it slides on. until I can get new ones, sunroof can't go in. (pn 54121934933)



      tomorrow, windshields and seats and dash and maybe even doors

        It's looking good man. Keep rolling with the punches, it's annoying but so worth it at the end. You're gonna have a sick MT2 coupe

          well, today was a day

          first I took the dash and carpet out of the receiver





          nice and tidy, how it should be.

          then I took the donor apart some more..







          the passenger footwell is just thoroughly fucked through with rust. good thing this shell isn't going back on the road!

          some more goodies pulled out of the italian car..

          Hella smileys



          this was a pleasant surprise!



          euro foglight switch



          mtech II wheel



          Italian OBC!



          and a euro cluster..




          anyway, then I got to assembling it...

          first, re-foam the HVAC flange



          then stick the carpet in (I cut around the HVAC because fuck that noise)



          and then I got focused and didn't take photos until the interior was mostly together






          also while taking the dash out, I found this:



          the car shall be called Lira.

              Very awesome! Are you going to use the euro front fenders with side repeaters?

                Clock! Clocks are rad.

                I'm going to transfer the repeaters and cladding to the fenders that came on Lira, they're straight and have new paint.

                  Got a few more things done: hung doors, installed lockstrips, buttoned up interior, painted under-headlight strip of valence.

                  I used a paintscratch can for the valence and it came out well. 3 medium-light coats, 1 dust coat (the can says to do this to make the metallic look right), 2 coats of clear, still needs to be wet sanded and a final coat applied.









                  Also pulled this out of the donor, it's a bit absurd. Anyone want a nice old school pioneer setup?

                      I'm not sure what to do about the transmission that's going to be in this car.

                      On one hand, I have a Getrag 250, the selector rod it likes, a brace for it, and a driveshaft that will bolt right up between it and a S3.46 diff.

                      On the other hand, I have a Getrag 245/11, the selector rod it likes, a brace for it, and a driveshaft that will bolt right up between it and a S3.46 diff.


                      "They" say the 250 is known to be a weak transmission, but "they" say much the same of the 245. Doglegs are cool..

                          Unless that dogleg is really worn out, it will last a long time behind that engine.

                          I vote dogleg for euro cool factor.
