WRONG FUZZY.

It's "Fuck it, gut it." Answers many problems.

Leaky tail lights, wet interior! - "Fuck it, gut it."

Bro threw up all over the back seat! - "Fuck it, gut it."

I'm tired of running 16's! - "Fuck it, gut it."

I'm tired of giving my loser friends rides! - "Fuck it, gut it."

My girlfriend wants to go out tonight! - "Fuck it, gut it."

Cage will be getting painted a top secret color.

the interrior is staying completely gutted, everything i don't absolutely need is gone including extra wires and bracing.

Did a few pulls to 100 today and it is fast already with the stock dohc.

Gutting a car really wakes it up.

Awesome! I have the same cage. I can't see from the pics, but is it the cro-moly or the mild one? I went cromoly but that's just because I got it from another guy that was going to install it but never did.

The cage is mild steel erw. I migged it.

Did some more weight reduction today:

Gutted the trunk lid and installed locking pins.

Took out all the hinges etc from trunk

Took out wiper assembly

Got it smogged so I can now swap it. 2 years of no smog ftw!!!!

finally some updates. progress has been slow.

car up on jack stands
Image

old engine out and on the ground.
Image

took out the hinges and gutted the trunk lid. Now held on with locking pins...
Image

dash torn apart...
Image

pile of old wiring...
Image

new dash wiring being ran.
Image

air bag delete tray..
Image

bare engine bay ready for stitch welding and wheel tubs.
Image

here you can see the front end has had all the spot welds drilled out. The upper rad support will be removable for easier engine swaps.
the lower support has been removed and will be replaced with a 1.75" dom tube. The traction bars and radiator will mount to this. Overall i dropped a significant amount of weight and added strength/function.
Image

the bracing for the traction bar setup.
Image

and the manual rack i scored for 40 bux. alumablast paint does wonders!
Image

THATS ALL FOR NOW!

thanks for looking...

all im gonna say is " your crazy"

looks like alot of work.

why the new wiring harness.. is it to just make things look neat..?

Posted: Mon Nov 08, 2010 6:38 pm
by hybrid-Srt2001
for the wire tuck. I re did the dash harness to delete anything i didnt need, radio, defrost, air bags etc. Saved a ton of weight.

Ugh...your car makes me want to just start tearing more stuff off of mine. That manual rack looks awesome. I need to score one eventually.
