Maybe the end of your hipster phase but not the end of your ricer phase.

Got more work last night, but didn't take any pics (forgot the camera... AGAIN!).

All my gussets are done other than the passenger side X-brace "taco" gussets. Tomorrow we're going to mould a roof off of my sister's 318, and start getting the car ready for paint

I decided to go with the John Deere Blitz Black... There's a guy who did it here, and it turned out awesome:

Today was productive!

Jamie came over and we used my sister's car as a mould to lay up the fibreglass roof panel I'll be putting in the car. Should weigh no more than 3-4lbs (compared to ~10-15lbs for the stock panel including the sunroof frame).


Oh and the last pic is a preview of the other work I got done today (better pics will come tomorrow).

Ummm... Yes?

Lol I helped finance her car and part of the agreement was that I could scavenge and replace a few parts and do stuff like this

As promised, here are the better pics!

So yesterday I got the cage mostly painted, then put the last few coats on today. After that, I started painting the interior - these pics are only with the first coat. Very excited for how it's going to look!

In between family stuff this weekend, I was able to get a bit more work done:

I pretty much finished the interior paint - just have the trunk left to do. I think I'm going to just tape it off an spray it - rolling/brushing takes FOREVER.

I also got the roof cut to size and installed some stiffening braces. Just waiting for the adhesive to dry, then the interior will be painted white and it will be fastened to the car. Total weight of the new roof is 9lbs (the old one was ~26lbs).

The last thing I did tonight was slot/redrill my strut towers for extra camber/caster. Hoping for capability of around 5deg. of negative camber now
