Hey guys, So i was moving and a lot of things happened but now the car is finally back home. I ordered nos mounts and now I'm just gonna get more prep work done so I can paint my engine bay.

Unfortunately, the car was in the rain with no head and just a plastic tarp over the engine bay and car cover.

My tire rods are rusted even though they're brand new which is incredibly disappointing.
Also, my block has light rust through the paint.

I'll have to see what to do. I'm praying it's not too bad. I'll take some pics soon as well.

Some updates. I will be painting this week. I ordered a bunch of new things.Image
I do new some headlight rings to hold my head light in place if anyone's got some.

I also need the water outlets on the oil filter side of the block...

My engine seems to have a bit of damage, but I think if I sand it, and give it a light coat, it'll be good to go.

I also got my proper engine mounts finally.
A lot is coming together.

Time to change your sig to 5 doors.

So i painted but it did not turn out too well for my first time so I'm gonna sand it tomorrow, do a bit more work and then reshoot it friday with the clear to perfect it all.

On my old 510, it was my dream to paint the engine bay gun metal with a mint valve cover with the car being blue. It'll be a different color scheme but was inspired from that.

By Friday, I'll have some more time to get the suspension done because I need to get out some rust in the LCA's and xmember. My new damn tie rods rusted and it bugs me every time I see them. Well the car is coming together slowly and I could not be any happier!

Here's some pics. Also, I have my hayashi's for sale because although they are my dream wheels, I want 14's or 15's. I'll have to resell and wait until the right set comes up.

At least I can say that I owned a pair!

You can see my welds more visibly now and how shitty of a job I did. I tried my best so I can't say much.

I think it looks good. Make sure you've got enough coats on it :)

Just a harbor freight gun and air compressor.
It went well in my opinion. At first I thought i had a lot of orange peel when it was wet but when it dried, it smoothed out pretty nicely.

Thanks! When it's in the sun you can actually see the pearl/flake.

I have one of those harbor freight guns. Did you have any issues with it? I haven't used it yet. Was planning on using it for primer. I've got a SATA for color.

It worked well for me! Unfortunately, I did have orange peel but it was pretty minimal.

I had an hour or so today so me and my friend put my suspension on one side together. unfortunately, he scratched the paint in a small spot...

Also, I wanted to install my t3 strut bar but it's not fitting?

I just need some headlight retainers asap and a lower grille molding.

I know it has been done 1000 times but I want to lower my rear but I'm not sure how to without hitting th diff and etc.

I want 3 inches or so. I heard just with 2 inch you hit the dif?
I want to see what I can do without having to cut and weld the tunnel under the back seat.
