    my daily driver project

    Here's a thread for this car so it doesn't clog up my other thread, which is for my other car. I've had this one for a while, but never planned on using it, until a week or 2 ago. It's been sitting around for a while with no interior or motor or loom, mainly cause it had no windscreen in it, but that's about to change cause I don't like driving cars with no engines & such. So over the last few days i've been doing a bit of work on it. Here's some pics of the build progress so far...



    first up, a better set of wheels


    then pulled apart again

    Re: my daily driver project

    this here is the motor for the car


    and cleaned up


    with a manual gearbox & other stuff all bolted on to it, all ready to go in now


    now onto the loom & heater/dash install, the loom came from my CA accord, so it is all wired up for my alarm and whatever other things i put on that car:




    and that's as far as I've gotten so far. I've been sick the last couple days so progress is teh slow.

    Re: my daily driver project

    thanks.

    well today, I decided to investigate how water is getting all in my interior, typical sunroof leak. 1 of the lines where cut, the other 3 where completely clogged & 1 was just going into the boot, which filled up the whole spare tyre wheel well with water. I couldn't even blow down the hoses. with the cut line, I just blocked it off, cause threading a new hose was far too difficult. That just means I can't park my car facing down hill on a passenger side lean in the rain. I can live with that. The rest, I forced some thick wire down them & eventually unclogged them, 25 years worth of gunky sludge came out, I hosed down the drains till water was flowing freely & was nice and clear.. should be good for another 20 years now

    I also installed my tow bar & bolted on the bumper properly, it used to only be held on with a couple screws. Before doing that, I cut up a old car mat & zip tied it to around the exhaust part of it. This should silence the annoying exhaust rattle hopefully


    also got my power folding mirrors working, so the cars alarm is now fully functional again yay! Only electrical problem I have now is the pop-up lights don't work. I'm hoping it's just a faulty switch, cause troubleshooting them is the sucks. Anyway, it's raining right now, just what I was hoping for too! So in the morning I can check to see if the inside of the car is dry.. If it is, I can proceed with installing the rest of the interior (carpet, seats & such)

    That's all for now lol.

    Kill the person at imageshack who decided it would be a good idea to make their site automatically rotate my pics without my consent, and you can have some fogs

    continuing with the slow pace...
    car ready for motor

    motor ready for car

    now to put the 2 together

    yay

    you probably cant see in this photo, but the right side of the car is frame damaged underneath

    the cross member is all bent & is quite a bit lower on the right side. that explains all the stress marks in the engine bay where the paint has flaked off.. and probably why the front bumper & right fender has troubles going on. i'll have to straighten that out before putting it on the road

    Kid's got waaay too many extra cars sitting around his property.

    Looking good man. I lol'd at the beater status sunroof repair. You know your car's a beater when you can't park it a certain way or water will get into it.

    Of course I'm lazy. If I wanted to work on my car I'd have gotten a DSM

    haha thanks


    i made some moar progress today, it didnt rain all day for a change! but unfortunately i left my head liner in a puddle of water, so I couldn't get that installed today. i got most of the interior in though. i hosed out the car a bit first cause there was lots of gunky slime and stuff in there. all nice now


    my stealth alarm hidden inside a automatic gaybox control box.. not so stealth now that it's on the interweb





    done more stuff in the engine bay, can't do much more untill i fix up all my fuck ups in there, don't wanna install the front bumper untill after i fix the damage underneath the car too.




    here there is a crease that goes up to the top of the car, i'm hoping thats as far as the damage goes. you can also see the shock is all bent, probably failed caster cause of the bent crossmember


    hope tomorrows weather is as good as todays

    Re: my daily driver project

    the car sat out in the rain last night, and leaked, fail. must be from the windscreen. but i've already installed the head liner, and fucked if im doing that again.

    the motor also got another nice rinse, i scrubbed the exhaust heat shield and that got rid of a lot of rust spots. makes a big difference


    my goal is to get it as clean as what my other car used to be
