Well it started out needing a complete floor ,then the trunk had some pinholes scatered a round . The tail panel had rust all a round the taillights. The quarters had been fixed badly. There was a small hole in the roof skin and It was well if we fix this then that 's not much more and on and on. I brought it to a guy in my area who does awesome work .He wanted $10,000 labor to put quarters tail panel floor and trunk. I had to bring all my own parts.
So I bought all NOS parts .I was ready to have him do it . Then I saw Mike's site and couldn't believe his work , for $3,000 more he provide the parts not NOS but the way he installs them I couldn't tell the difference. I sold the NOS parts and paid for half my work. I kept the front end NOS parts ,but the rest are from Mike. I spent a bunch more with add ons but its my one shot at this so I jumped in with both feet in the deep end . And I'm not sorry.
THanks for looking
WAyne

Default Sub Frame Pictures

Here are some sub frame pictures Mike blasted the sub and found it had been hit on the drivers side . So he suggested we cut the crossmember in front of the motor and replace it with the set up they use to install a Rack system. Then he fixed any rusted mounting points . Then he welded all the seams solid, and ground it smooth. He powder coated all the parts It has DSE upper control arms with Xtall ball joints ,Speed tech lower control arms . All new Moog steering components with tall outer tie rod ends to combat bumpsteer. 3" drop springs with single adjustable Vari shocks and a dse front sway bar. Check it out its the first part for the car thats finnished!


Her is what it looks like now




These don't show it with the coil spring in but it is done now.
What do you think

Default Project FNQUIK

I never named my project but this is the plate that went on it when I bought it so I guess thats it.
The story about the plate is this . I used to work 50 miles from home and I had to travel on hell road RT24 from Boston. ( anyone who uses it knows what I mean. ) their used to be this little BMW Z3 that used to fly by us in the work truck every day. We would be going 80 and she buzzed right by us.I got a look at her she was about 21 blond and gorgeous. We would look for her eery day . One day she got stuck in front of us and I got to see her liscence plate . It was from Ma. FNFAST I loved it .When I got home I told my wife about it . She said if you like it get it , I explaned it was a Ma. plate they don't do doubles.

Later that week A few of My buddies came over the house one was drunk as a skunk I was trying to think of a good plate . He was half asleep and didn't get in on the conversation. We talked all night with no ideas when we woke him up he blurts out . How about FNQUIK . He hadn't even flinched for two hours and comes up with a winner.

I mentioned it to my wife and she said get it if you want .I told her the state might not let me if they pick up on what it means. So I didn't even try about a week later my wife hands me an evelope from the registry , I opened it . It had FNQUIK on it and said it was aproved , she went and tried and they let it go . Thats how I got my plate.

When I put the plate on it some kid in a WRX that was no stocker came on the side of me and asked if the plate was right . I told him it was but it meant how my money was going sense i bought the car . He laghed and fried all four tires when he left. I would have had a better chance on foot to catch him lol

I have a lot of pictures of the build so far I will try to catch up to where it is now .
