Well this is hardwood flooring, laminate floors or whatever. The individual pieces that connect to make floors in houses. I connected the first few pieces with glue and the last few with glue but not the two halves. So I can lift up and disconnect to access the spare tire area.

As for varnish, I wanted a lighter color and this floor is coated so I cant varnish it well :\ I regret it now because I want darker haha.

And a little update for the coils, rears are on. What a learning process!





I'll see a few of you at the fender rolling meet, I'll show you the floor.

Haha I bought it used from someone with tools for $130, nothing fancy but it gets the job done really well


Update:

Well, slammed the whole car and good news/bad news.. really bad.

It looks superb, got it to a height where I dont rub the fenders, just need to roll next weekend.

The bad news is that my tires hit my coilovers! It rubbed so much that I blew a tire in less than 10km. Then nearly blew the other tire >.< car is sitting at a gas station until tomorrow when stores open so I can buy washers as spacers for now.. then buy real spacers. Cause I cant even drive the short distance to my house without blowing tires.

Disappointment.

Mhmm, just sitting in my garage dripping oil I'm gonna see if I can get it welded up tomorrow, but it looks like I wont be making the fender rolling event if this doesnt get running in time. And I heard oil pans are a pita to swap on these cars so welding really is my only option, if not, I shall swap. JDM engine, however.
