PostSubject: Joshs Build Thread   Fri May 06, 2011 6:27 pm

Figure ill scrunch my threads down to one...

Update. Rear emblem relocated to grill. I prolly used the most unconventional tool to remove the extra gunk sadly it let a white outline of where the glue was. Any1 know how to fix it??? And the emblem placement on a 94/95 grill was easy. Little dab of super glue. and it should stay for good will upload pics when I get home



update 5-12-11
well i got my high flow cat. raised my car. went to put it on. come to find out there is another o2 sensor on the cat. but the new high flow didnt have one at all. great. so note to everyone out there. you cannot use a high flow cat. unless u have 2 places for o2 sensors. otherwise you are going to have a nice orange light on in your cluster.

5-13-11
traded my high flow and a little cash for


3000k hid highs.

to remove excessive glue on trunk and etc, u will need terry towels, or microfiber u will never used again, rubbing alcohol and acrysolv <--- adhesive remover from auto parts store... basically u dab rubbing alcohol over where the glue is,...come back with microfiber and acrysolv and rub back and fourth where the area of glue is....there will be paint fade so u have to use rubbing compound and wax to even the fade out...waalaaaa! glue removed and debadged

Fixed that pesky exhaust leak. Put the gasket between the cat and the down. And the springs. Started it and still heard sonething. Well one of the bolts I put in last week snapped. So it was leaking st another part. Fixed it and it runs so much better. who would think one little leak makes it run like shit. And its quieter. But. On the downside. When I was under there. I was snooping around. Noticed my tranny case has a hole near the top of where it connects.to engine. Not leaking. So I'm tonnage try ti cover it soon to avoid water getting in.

been up to a couple big things..

first. i removed the black out on my tails. unfortunately no pictures of that at the moment...


next, i picked these up from quintin for a cheap price. decided it was all or nothing and if i fucked them up im not out much money

already removed lens, and painted

finished painting, removed the painters tape. it turned out pretty good. only a couple flaws that are hardly noticeable at a glance.

lens placed back on. and walla, finished product. pretty good for a days work, and a first attempt

say goodbye forever to these badass headlights

off with the old.

passenger side = old driver side = new... time to blind. this picture was taken at about 1 pm on a sunny day lol

on with the new.

my favorite picture so far. except gaspppp... a RED HEAD *shudders*
