Wow, the boys on m42 club got a nice kick out of my buy and 'lack of knowledge'.

Anyways, Did a compression test cold.
220
210
225
231

The car has a tubular header, and a new drive shaft.

I'm keeping the M42 and doing the suspension, brakes and wheels and tires

The header you're seeing is probably the stock one. a new driveshaft is good and will last forever in a m42 drivetrain.

Heres some underbody shots





My brother has POR 15 at the shop for his RX-7, i'm going to do the wheel wells and rockers with it possibly. I'm going to take a shot at pushing the dent out in the door.

Little bit of an update, kinda fixed the dent a little bit. Just a fix for now, not a permanent fix but until I get it painted in the winter, it'll do.





Giant piss off, I lost the door lock stub thing when I took the door card off..

Update: Pulled the interior out, cleannnizzle

I'm starting my new job this week doing shipping and receiving for a industrial tool company. I get a wicked discount, so i'm going to buy a sandblasting cabnet and a giant compressor.









There was some stupid cell phone from like 91 installed by the dealer, I took that shit out, man was there alot of wires.

haha thanks, I pulled the interior so I can run some audio cable and take out the stupid cellphone wiring in it. I'm just turning the car into a bad ass daily now I guess.
