Haven't had time to post anything on here for a while, but this is a brief breakdown of some things that have been done to this day!
We have done a lot of stuff in the background too that I haven't mentioned here...
But here are some before pictures of the subframe, and all of the arms and fuel tank...

This is how the car is sitting right now
Still, we have a long way to go!
I'll make more in-depth updates soon!

Cheers!:thumb

I regards to having these parts refinished how did you go about it? Were these sand blasted and then powdercoated in Satin Black? Any other info would be greatly appreciated as I soon will be doing something similar.

Good effort, do you have a pic of under the car before you started all this?

Ive been thinking about some sort of soda/sand blasting setup do you have anything like that or is it wire wheels etc?

Im just going to shamelessly copy what youve done

The parts were sand blasted and powder coated!

Well, I don’t really have any good pics of the car before, only this one...F0D09607-65EB-4633-B395-1B9362D9DC1F.png
But I can tell you, it wasn’t in good condition, the roads where I live and from where we got the car from get salted in the winter, so yeah...

A lot of parts (80%) get sandblasted and powder coated, the rest of them are tackled with a wire wheel and painted with a rattle can!

Nice, did you do that ?
Is that aluminium?
Still my favourite thread, any more pics?
Hey!
Thanks a lot for the kind words!
Yes, that is all aluminum, and no, I did not make it myself, I designed it and had a friend weld it up!

Haven't been posting a lot of pics because right now it is so cold outside and our garage isn't heated, so that means it is freezing in there! We also have a lot of parts on order that we are still waiting on!

But here are some more recent pics!
