Replace those screws holding the nosedrive in with Metric stainless socket head (hex) cap screws. It really sets it off. Most of the superchargers I've coated for myself and others were done this way, as well as the screws holding the charger to the manifold.

Willwren, Might have to do that. I mean it doesn't look bad now but, ya probably should have done that from the get go.

Ya I can not wait to fir this thing up, its almost to much to take :banana: :banana: :banana:

The nozzle on the TB adapter is the vacuum port. I will be either blocking that port or the TB port, wish it was something cooler though.

Image

test hood:
Image

real deal:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

almost done:
Image

This guy has the shop re-finishing a fiberglass bed for this Toyota dually that's the size of an s10, worst part is its costing him like almost 3k because of all the work going in to it. :pat:
Image

that's all for now...

Its been a little while, but work, the car, the bike, and all the other stuff has kept me pretty busy. I have been working on the car just mainly sanding prepping and repair, hope to get it to paint soon. Here are some pics of the body and the front air dam repair.

Image

Image

Image

I don't have any pics after that for the air dam but it looks real good, and the 3M stuff we used is awesome.

Image


WE GOT THE REAR WINDOW OUT WITHOUT MESSING ANYTHING UP!!! SO HAPPY. I get a good paint job done the right way and don't have to mess with the back glass molding.

Image

Image

That's it for now...

Well I know it has been a while since I posted here or any forum I am on for that matter, but all the body work was slow
and tedious so there were no real updates until now! So I will let the pictures do most of the talking here,

Fixing the air dam
Image

Making a mess
Image

Image

Image

Z34 Vent which was a lot of work to do but I think worth it.
Image

Messing around
Image

Work work work
Image

Made sure to take care of some surface rust here
Image

The bumpers black trim gave us a lot of trouble for some reason with this:
Image

The fiberglass spoiler which took a little more work than I thought to make it fit right, but still a nice piece
Image

Image

This fender came from the 1st silver T and this mount wouldn't allow us to allign right so we cut it out and moved it in and now it fits right
Image

Almost there
Image

Ready to go
Image

Sealer
Image

13U Bright Silver Metallic
Image

Image

Cleared
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Working on the trim now
Image

Image

Unfortunately the clear for some reason has "flattened and lost some of its shine. The body guys says it will buff back but IDK I guess we will see, if it doesn't I have more work ahead of me
Image

Well that's it for now. If the buffing goes well it will be home in a few weeks and I can start with the rest of the car!!

It has been a while since I posted here, well mainly due to the big crap storm that has become the body work project of the car. I am not going to go in to the details but either way I hope to have it back soon and will post more when I am 100% back in to the project. I have some pics I need to load up wand when I do I will post them but just know I am still here and check in once in a while

Nope but I started a new job with Apple inc. so that keeps my busy, plus I upgraded from a 03 Yamaha R6 to a 07 R6, keeping up with my 01 Lincoln LS daily, and dealing with a kinda crappy situation with my car at this body shop. I have pretty much everything I need though!
