the things people do... you got me man. surprisingly he did a great job painting it. Im afraid of doing more harm trying to remove the paint. I'll take a closer pic. its actually impressive compared to the other quality of work done to this car
I had some extra doors laying around with some jdm thin moldings. Put those on. Got rid of the 20+lbs of bondo in the doors.
Found on craiglist some 04 ex wheels w/good tires for $50.00
The hood latch was all jacked up, couldn't close the hood properly and the cf hood was all warped on the edges.
so i got some hood pins at a local racecar store for $11.99 and installed those. Now the hood opens, and actually sits surprisingly well.
My friend (a painter) said he would spray the car for me and re-clear the cf hood. in exchange for a few decals.. so.. thats free
So far.. cheap.
I removed the MSD ignition setup since it wasnt even hooked up. Removed the tach shif light. and installed a new EX cluster i found in my storage shed. So.. The car has a working speedometer now
