And it begins!

Rate this Entry
After coming back from my trip to Missouri to pick up a really nice stealth shell, I've started the process of everything.

We tore the subframe out of the shell, and dropped the front out of the bottom, lifted the stealth shell, and pulled it out.

We've started painting the engine bay the end color that the car will be..



BLAMO!

Atomic Orange from GM's Corvette's.

Unfortunately, my family friend that is going to be doing the paint job got in an accident this past Friday and is recovering. He's alive and just a bit swollen, but he will be back to work in a few days.

I decided to jack up the totaled stealth and drain the oil. Boy oh boy. Was not fun to find some metal shavings inside the oil, but it was to be expected, as the engine was giving us trimmings for the past few oil changes. We will hopefully start dropping this engine soon, in which we'll start the engine/tranny rebuild(reverse doesn't like to go in every so often, so, we're fixing the bitch!)

I think, I've finally decided on the final look of the car. My plans ultimately will be:
Stealth middle section(side skirts/sail panels) with a 2nd gen 3000GT front end, 2nd gen stealth rear bumper with the stealth taillights, and the current wing.

Atomic orange on EVERYTHING, but the hood/roof/rear hatch's windshield wiper area, with the 2nd gen headlights robo-modded black.

Opinions?

    Eh, I'm far too lazy to resize it. I don't understand why the website doesn't resize it during the preview.

    Yep.

    Going all out with this one. I've always wanted this color(since I saw it in 2008...) so, I'm making it happen. Haha.

    Sorry about the delay, guys! Been working 6 days a week getting the money together.

    Yes, this is a garage job!

    I've also decided to go with some Go Fast "Forced Upgrades."
