      Not much traffic these days, figured there would be a bit more action! lol

      Car is officially resprayed and is being cut now. Wheel well tubs redone and bit of surface rust taken care of on the cowl.

      Freshy fresh! Guys at JMI absolutely killed it as usual.



      None of these pieces have been cut yet but I had to ask so that speaks for itself.






      Separated mirrors for paint which most don't do..

        Finished up the S14, added a Gustave bracket and a set of Magnecor wires. (Purchased a set of OEM Beru connectors and sending them into magnecor for a custom oem+ set)





        Fresh restored AC compressor from Jay.

          It's been awhile since we've had an update so here goes!

          Car is officially back from the body shop! Time to start tearing back into the car. Finished the driveshaft, just say no to replacing the tail shaft bearing as it was perfectly fine before I started in on it...

          Finished the bumper supports



          Just don't do it


          After cutting the damn thing out


          Primed trim


          Scuffed with 600 and then shot with SEM 49133




          Finished product

                  Headliner was a fun one! Reached out to Igor at CAtuned and he sent me several fabric samples. Ended up choosing the german sourced cloth which was a close match to OEM. The foam behind the rods/fabric was in great shape thankfully. I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

                  Old headliner out


                  Old sunroof liner


                  New fabric with pleats




                  Boom


                  New Headliner going in. Needed to trim quite a bit and then stretch, tack/glue it down then move to the next quarter section. Seemed to work well.






                  Removing sunroof rails










                  All Finished!





                  Rear Parcel Shelf & C-Pillars (recovered)




                  Fresh Antenna


                  Couldn't wait any longer and I installed the Sport Evo Wing





                  NOS tail lights for good measure




                  Trunk Seal, Took kit and Trunk Carpet re-installed



                  Mint OEM Grey Carpet freshly shampoo'd

                        That's looking great. I've never seen the sunroof without the headliner in place. What's the clear plastic piece in the 2nd pic? The clear material looks out of place under the headliner.

                          Hey Mick,

                          The clear plastic piece is what the side map-lights attach to
