    • That's amazing work you did ! I think you guys are so lucky to
      Have such cars. In a climate such as the one in my country, cars
      Depress verry quickly and become uber rare or uber tough to work on!!!

      Good luck with the rest of the build, keep us posted

        • UPDATE!

          Well i have to say this is my proudest moment in this build, i know i can do better but with the time and the shitty paint gun i have this is pretty damn good so lets begin.

          after setting up the paint booth again i got started in sanding down the inside of the doors as they had a few runs and a little bit of water on it





          then it started sanding down the bumper parts



          then it came to primering and it came out quiet right





          then i grabbed the other stuff and got that done too





          So then it was time to wait .... and wait, then it was the next day and time to sand shit back and get some ****ing awesome colour going.

          It started to rain half way into painting and the doors and hatch got wet some how and i'll have to sand them back but i am happy with the bumber parts





          the photos look cloudy cause i had just finished painting so when it dried up i took some better photos of the bumper parts





          after closer inspection this one got wet as well but as i wont be looking at it i dont care ...... for now haha



          so this is me upto date i wont have any real updates for a while as its around that time of the year where everyone company wants money but i will keep you posted with any little things i do.

          thanks again for all the comments guys.

              • well guys ive been a little bit busy with other stuff other then the civic but i havnt finished working on it big stuff happening at the end of may so let me show you what ive been up too the last few weeks.

                So i thought now that everything is in primer now would be a good time to clean out some of the car and put stuff back on and take some off



                starting to look like a car now!

                now for the wheel well ...... looks like someone had ran over something and then tried to beat it back to normal but in doing so they ripped some of the metal and even folded it over it self so it had to be cut out ready for a new patch to be welded in



                herpderpcamera


                i'll be getting her welded up soon

                but then it was time to start my bonnet .....


                rusty as all balls but with the help of my friends this is where it is right now got to buy a new wire wheel




                need the wire wheel for spots like this


                BUT NOW FOR SOME JIZZ WORTHY STUFF!

                all this i grabbed from the parts car i had a while ago and man does it look sad as





                BUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!
                I took all this to work and got it sandblasted, degasses, pretreated and painted and DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMNNNNNN its sexy





                so this is where i am right now more work and photos coming at the end of the month BIG update

                • this thread makes me grin like a monkey. all the blood sweat and tears of restoring a car is worth it when you finally get to drive it.

                  im impressed with you work, keep it up

                    • I don't know if I've posted in here or not yet... (I come on and have a snoop all the time though) and I want to say this is awesome. I love what you are doing to this car, its stuff like this that motivates me to keep going on my own projects.. We all need inspiration of some form

                      Love it anyway and I can't wait to see it when its done.
