progress. at long last, progress. indika seems to have sorted his kabour issues out. so now i got him to crack the whip and finish up the car. wife needs a ride soon. hopefully before april. lots of tinkering done yesterday and today. fixed the whole in the drainboard/firewall and patched it up.

and the nearly all the paint has been stripped, and the rear panel is now ready for cutting to fit the SSS lights. i like the new tinkerer. he seems honestly enthu about this project.

April? tough deadline no?

Better not rush it.Pay close attention to panel gaps.Have them use paint remover rather than grind the paint off...And once its down to bare metal go over the car yourself checking for rust before the primer coat is applied.Some garages hurriedly apply the primer without showing the owner cos de-rusting is time consuming work.You won't know it untill bubbles start appearing on the body.

the bumpers are a bit of an issue machan. i think my mecahnic can beat them back into shape. but i fear it might be too much chrome for the car, so i might go plastidip/matte black on them, and also still in two minds about the overriders. there are people who rechrome. mecahnic recommends people in darley road, but i have a guy in mount as well. isn't a cheap prospect tho

Dont go bumperless, the kind of look Suneth is going for requires Bumpers to look right, but loose the over riders! And keep em chrome!

if I were you Komi, I'd go chrome to preserve the original look. But that's just me. Chrome is never too much on a classic IMO. On a Toyota Vigo - well that's a whole different story.

If you think chrome is too much bling-y looking.Try nickel plating.It has a much more decent classy look.

Saw it. Made my eyes bleed rainbows, but it's not really my thing men. Would rather keep it old school.

This path is not without temptation. I've been offered an sr20ve and an sr16ve for next to nothing.

While that particular 510 is stunning, I totally am with you on this.

By any chance you'd be able to let me know the whereabouts?

Both offered by friends who are swapping. I have those and if you can afford there are ca18det's and sr20det's, in plural, up my sleeve. Drop me a pm for more details
