Its been a little while, but work, the car, the bike, and all the other stuff has kept me pretty busy. I have been working on the car just mainly sanding prepping and repair, hope to get it to paint soon. Here are some pics of the body and the front air dam repair.







I don't have any pics after that for the air dam but it looks real good, and the 3M stuff we used is awesome.




WE GOT THE REAR WINDOW OUT WITHOUT MESSING ANYTHING UP!!! SO HAPPY. I get a good paint job done the right way and don't have to mess with the back glass molding.





That'* it for now...

Well I know it has been a while since I posted here or any forum I am on for that matter, but all the body work was slow
and tedious so there were no real updates until now! So I will let the pictures do most of the talking here,

Fixing the air dam


Making a mess






Z34 Vent which was a lot of work to do but I think worth it.


Messing around


Work work work


Made sure to take care of some surface rust here


The bumpers black trim gave us a lot of trouble for some reason with this:


The fiberglass spoiler which took a little more work than I thought to make it fit right, but still a nice piece




This fender came from the 1st silver T and this mount wouldn't allow us to allign right so we cut it out and moved it in and now it fits right


Almost there


Ready to go


Sealer


13U Bright Silver Metallic




Cleared










Working on the trim now




Unfortunately the clear for some reason has "flattened and lost some of its shine. The body guys says it will buff back but IDK I guess we will see, if it doesn't I have more work ahead of me


Well that'* it for now. If the buffing goes well it will be home in a few weeks and I can start with the rest of the car!!

Wow, Lee...that'* a ton of work. Looks amazing. There won't be a spec of rust or anything on the entire car, right?

Looks great. The Z34 vents definitely look like they were worth the work

I know it has been a long time since I have posted any updates, but between work and this car I have had my hands full. For those of you who are interested here is a photo update of the things I have done in the past months. Getting close to getting a rolling chassis back which means almost time for motor install.

Since I last posted the car was at the body shop so I will pick up from there.







































Thats it for now. More to come soon.

Awesome, glad to see this project is still moving. So what are you doing suspension wise? I noticed you were selling your new set of springs and shocks

I am doing AGX custom made coil overs up front and monroe magic plus air assist shocks in the rear with custom rear springs. I really wanted to go lower so I figure might as well since it will not be a daily, like intended when I first started.
