From the pictures it looks gold but it's actually a metallic orange. Don't worry it will look great in the bay

Weekly Update for you guys!

Undercoated the body of the car from last week so here is some pics. I also got all my heat shields sandblasted and powder coated! They are done in "Ultimate Chrome" so when you walk under the car you can see your reflection, it's pretty awesome to see in person!





Cleaned up the edges and gave it a machined finish look!



All in the details!


Monster ready to boogie!


Tranny bolted up!


Accessories bolted up!


Just about there boys!

Talk is cheap so here you guys go!

Subframe connectors came in!



Little suspension/brakes teaser

Thank you so much for the comment! I'm trying my best to get it done quickly without cutting any corners. She is ready to go off for a dyno tune next weekend and shortly after will be ready for the road! As for my own TV show, if you know anyone that could get me started I will not shy away from the opportunity

Keep checking this thread because updates happen fast!

I don't like messing with some factory components for no reason. What would be your reasoning to remove it? Just wondering.

I appreciate the kind words

Update Time!

Torque Arm I bought from a member on here. He had cut the driveshaft safety loop to clear his exhaust. I won't have to worry about the exhaust not clearing because the Dynatech system I have fits without a hitch. I had an old driveshaft safety loop crossmember UMI piece laying around collecting dust so I put it to use and chopped it and had it welded back on in the factory location so now it's a complete piece again!

Here's the piece.

The cut.



Cleaned up and painted (still drying lol)


And installed!


Mechanically the car is 100% done now. The subframe connectors went in without a hitch and everything is nicely bolted down and tweaked!

Installed the SLP Loudmouth system! She sounds mean boys!!


Looks like one of the first pics I took last month but it's a new one!


Coming down!


Got the car where I wanted it with the ground control package in the back and my coil over setup in the front. This is where it sits now!



She's dusty I know


Burnout coming soon (weather permitting)

Thanks for subscribing man!

So lets get to this boys!

Gutted the whole interior to give it a nice clean and detail. Washing the floors with soap and water, wiping it all down, power washing the carpet and thoroughly getting rid of all the dirt from the previous owner (man were they messy!)

Anyways talk is cheap so I'll let the pics do the talking.







Dash pulled. AC/Heater box pulled to completely clean and disassemble. Man that thing is a bitch to take out when the motor is in





Dash back in after a long day of cleaning and will get to the rest of the interior next weekend.



Took a trip down to the states (North Tonawanda, Buffalo) to get some floor pans and rear quarters for another buddies transam so that was fun! Picked up some tires for my car while I was down there for a steal and managed to score a couple miscellaneous pieces for my WS6 including the badge for the rear panel I was missing

Here's how we got the half of a TA back to Canada LOL, it looks sketchy but it was strapped down really good and didn't budge an inch for the entire 3 hour drive.


The missing piece of my beautiful puzzle! ACQUIRED.


Cleaned up the old two faced tape


BAM, IT LOOKS SO RIGHT ON THERE!


Love this shot


Where the love of my life sits right now.


Stay tuned people!
