    Today I got the block hot-tanked. Got it back home, went after it with grinders, wire wheels, sandbits, you name it. Wiped it down in lacquer thinner to get all the impurities out and painted it. Still just doing one side at a time, but I finally decided my color combination I want for the car, I'm painting the engine to match

    Here's what I started with.


    Hot tank


    More prep


    And more prep


    I didn't get any pictures of the total prep, was too excited. But here's one side finished.






    Lots of wire wheeling, grinding, more grinding, more wire wheeling, and even pulled out the hand grinder. So mix of dremel, hand sanding and a grinder. Lots of lacquer thinner to get the rusty dust off and that's the end result.

    Gonna go finish the rest here in a bit but am way tired, long day.

    Here is today's post of the interior stripping. I have not shared a lot of these photos since I wanted to post them when I was close to done since it's pointless to go "HEY LOOK! RUST AND GROUND DOWN METAL!"

    Since I like before and after photos.









    Yay, so much fun.


    Chisels, screwdrivers, hammer and armstrong.







    These last 3 are the most recent.





    As you can see if you look close, driver side still needs a bit more. And it's dirty as hell in there so it's easy to see all the dusty **** flying around thanks to me grinding in the car. But you get the idea.

    As of today there is no more carpet/material/lining/foam/trim in the car. It's all gone now. I have dremeled/sanded/grinded/wheeled away almost all the cancer on the inside at this point and am sealing it.

    It got ****ty as hell outside so i parked it for today. But I took the rear quarters out and traced them so I can finish my lexan windows and took the pillars out so I can finally put to use the CF I bought. Going to probably buy some flat media CF so I can use it for the dash and gauges and then strip out the rest of the dash.

    Well guys I got some CF parts made and finally got some more **** done on the 924. The dash is officially gone, and the CF dash will be going in it's place here very very soon. I made a pillar so I can get some gauges moved since the other side of the dash will be non-existent. Should be fun times.

    The dash still needs to be trimmed, sanded and cleared and is straight rough out of the mold, but you get the idea.



    And here is the pillar

    I like. Yes.





    Still need to trim off a bit more, cut out the switch holes and finally sand and clear... but it's finally taking shape. Very proud of myself, my first big CF piece. Yes, it's ugly, yes, I realize that it looks horrible. But it's functional and does exactly what I need it to do, lose weight jenny craig style.

    Got my megasquirt today off my buddy. He updated his, I went with his old one, been just sitting on the shelf waiting for me. FINALLY can start wiring the harness up.



    Also, some pics of my buddy's build. He let me take some pictures today. My CIS is going away and something very similar will be in it's place. Not bad for a slow 2.0L van engine

    Old dash mounts have been attached to the CF dash and fit. Fits like a glove! Still figuring out gauge placement but thus far it's going smoothly.
