this is how it sat




this is the main reason the car sat for so long as i got discouraged




so i decided to fix this... NO BONDO!!!!!





and off course the JDM rad support looked like it been on and of many different cars...


so it ended up looking like this lmao




but I really disliked the idea of having a rad support all hacked up... so i hacked it even more...


decided to take a usdm rad support and make me a nice jdm rad support


only then i managed to get the body lines lined up as close as OEM



got everything lined up to start the welding process...



these were also added as they did not have them when i got this...


some seam sealer to seal the weld areas




then the whole underbody got a POR-15 treatment to ensure rust stays away from my baby





then undercoating to top it off and some suspension components

so I needed the brake lines done and was thinking bout doing a brake tuck BUT didn't like the idea of having brake lines inside the car so i just relocated prop valve lower on the firewall and fabricated the brake lines out of copper lines (once again to ensure rust doesn't **** with my lil project)





then the engine bay started getting ready for spraying




yeah took advantage of the downtime and shaved most of the necessary holes...


primered...



then my man Omy showed up and offered himself to sprayed the bay for me!! good looks bro!!




nice and shinny





so it was time to start putting everything back together





mind the dust on everything...(my boy decided to do his bodywork as I put my **** back together...


the power plant...




swap in...


cleaned and polished the headers...


interior getting there as well


front end finally on and ready to go...


yes I'm keeping the A/C

thanks guys i really did have fun along with clothes full of por-15 and gotta say i hope it really works and keeps my car from getting rust as I'm not driving it the snow thats for sure, but really this project has been a lot of fun and I'm inpatient to drive this thing around, just got it aligned a few days ago and must say the camber kits did come in handy and this thing deff turns heads but still gotta finish a few little things left to be done but I can at least say it is road worthy and getting there once I get a chance I'll take some more pics(been using my ****ty phone) lol and post them but really looking for a mag to do a shoot to this and hopefully appear in at least one magazine. Later on I'll make a list of the aftermarket parts(goodies) on it and share with you guys.

Did you put a top Coat of Por 15, on top of the Por 15? To protect it from the UV rays (Sunshine) And how many coats did you lay down? Should be good, I did my dc4 about a yr ago and I rolled it outside everyday for this Entire summer and the parts that didn't get hit by the sun, help up great! But I don't think rust can EVER permenantly be cured without replacement..

I feel you on the Mag. spread thing, Its all about Recognition/ Promotion/ and Dedication!

yeah laid two coats of por-15 and didn't do the top coat just sprayed about 8 cans of rustoleum undercoating to the whole underside to protect from UV rays and weather elements although not really thinking of driving her during rain or snow, she didnt had much rust just superficial rust which was grounded and treated the right way, brand new gas tank along with brake and gas lines this thing has come apart in every little aspect inspected and replaced almost everything, even the c5 is new bought from the dealer a few years back and it only has about 3k miles so its time to do her second ever oil change with Mobil one full synthetic of course lol

This is a very clean build, nicely done! I like it alot.

One question.. You show in multiple photos the brake rotors covered in black paint/por 15.. Um how did that end up working out when driving it ha?

lmao yeah its black caliper paint and just did it so the rest of the rotor stays rust free, obviously the braking surface will clear of the paint as the pads go thru it. I like it rust free!!:biggrin:
