I know I said it on your instagram but that banner is just genius. I've never seen a street car pull it off but somehow you did it.

Cruised around yesterday and snapped some shots in front of the San Diego skyline.




Finally got some clear coat on the right fender and side skirt, still gotta order another can of clear for the rear bumper, left side skirt and front lip. I used the 2k type of clear coat, awesome stuff! Not exactly cheap at about $18.95 can but totally worth it. Fender just needs some color sanding and it should be done.

Love your car! I want those Bassett wheels for sure, but plan to have them powder coated desert tan. I look forward to watching your build in the future.

Do you have shields under the car to protect everything?

No sir, atleast not yet

Snapped a few shots of the undercarriage today. Warning, may be graphic for some lol

Dented subframe





Flattened frame rails





Transmission is also flattened lol



On another note, I got some fresh new toyo t1r's mounted today and installed my polyurethene filled motor mounts with Corollove.

A comparison to the new polyfilled motor mount (left) and the old mount (right). The rubber material in all of the old mounts basically looked as chewed up as this, time for a change.



Filling the front and rear motor mounts with the polyurethene wasn't much trouble but I ran into some issues with the right mount and transmission mount so to help make sure everything stays put, I ended up adding some quik steel and gave it a few days to cure before installing them. During the installation process, the dented subframe made it difficult to align the front mount back in so I'll be keeping an eye on it to see if it prematurely fails. Still, with the mounts in, the motor seems to be more responsive and there is less backlash. Definitely better than the old ones no doubt lol



Got some other plans for addressing other issues, including some fabrication here and there. Slowly but surely, I'll get the rolla set up real nice!

Flattened transmission hahah, don't worry, I've seen cars not nearly as low look worse underneath.

Yeah I plan on raising the motor eventually. With the new mounts in it already have me almost an inch of extra clearance lol

That's good to know haha, yeah I'm not too worried. Definitely would add a skid plate when I put a new transmission in
