Finally decided to take some pics

Post by Barry McCockener » Sun Nov 27, 2011 8:24 pm

So I had to remove all my carpet so I decided to give it a good cleaning inside and out and figured I'd finally take a few pics of it. The whole interior used to be that tan color but I decided to paint the console, dash, front pillars, and piece that goes around the steering wheel black. Also have my oil pressure gauge mounted in my air vent. I got bored with the stock shift knob so I made one out of a skull I had lying around and a skull door lock cover. All the bodywork was done by the P.O. and I plan on fixing that within the next few months.

looks like a good fixer upper you have. i did the same thing with my boost gauge as you did with your oil pressure. lay some fiber glass over it and it will look ten times better.

Yeah I bought it for $800 because the owner hit a mailbox that was surrounded by bricks so I had to get a new rim/tire and radiator. Still need to put in my AC condenser and a new radiator core support but that'll happen when I do the rest of the body work. How much is the fiberglass to do the vent?

Haha thanks man, me and my buddy came up with it in high school. Is your name a reference for Uriah Heap or something else?

Thanks Neo, that first spray paint pic gave me a great idea for some of the truck-driving jerk-offs around here.

Keep it up Mr. McCockener :thumbup:

Haha yeah, they think that just because I drive a small car that I'll move over if they ride my ass. Their first warning is normally me sticking my arm out the window and shaking my finger and they normally back off. I'm tired of doing that.

Oh, so you're that slow left-lane driving asshole slowing me down every morning.


Not good, Mr. McCockener, not good [-(
I'll be over with spray paint later.
