SLIMER: Trying to redeem myself

Post by 1972demon » Thu Dec 31, 2009 5:48 pm

thought i would start a progess log for my NYG, its winter time and its taking a nice long nap (see pictures below). but that just gives me lots of time to get the engine bay cleaned up and straightened around.

This is how its sitting
Image
She's winking
Image

This is to keep the rodents away
Image
Image
Image

if you've noticed it wheel-less, there safely tucked away as well
Image
Image
Image

her winter replacement, the reason i can park her: the purple people eater
Image

this is currently how my engine bay looks, im looking to clean it up abit everything is going to get paint or powdercoated, got any ideas for stuff
Image
Image

and this is what my lovely girlfriend got me for christmas its hanging on my wall, ( its 5' x 4' )
Image :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mmmmm not to beat the horse, since it's yours now, but I love Tiol's car. I say serious wire tuck and clean up of the engine bay. The exterior is too beautiful to mess with.

home depot garden liner, i just screwed it in with about 17 3/4" #6 screws.

as for the wire tuck , i was already thinking it, already started to collect pictures.

as for the exterior i got one surprise coming, but i have a question roof rack or no roof rack, i personally love the looks of them, but would i be fucking up the cleanness of the car.

They don't look good at all! They look hideous! Neons have clean lines now, adding an erector set to the top is like adding fins to your penis, they're unnecessary and would make it look fucking stupid.

All my opinion, of course. Roof racks seem to be the "in" thing now, as much as I cannot understand it...

I bought mine with it, or it wouldn't have it. Although it really doesn't bother me. Might even grow on me.

You really need to carry stuff that's too large to fit inside the car that badly?

Then I fail to see the appeal of a roof rack at all. It will hurt fuel mileage, and not be at all useful to you.

Your NYG is too clean for a roof rack. Don't do it.

It's added weight and detracts from the cars natural aerodynamics. Thereby dropping fuel mileage. Sure it may only be 1 MPG... but that's still a drop for nothing.
