          Made some progress in the last week.

          Used a wire wheel to remove the undercoating.
          Mocked up the new engine mounts.
          Built the new fire wall / new battery tray.
          Sandblasted the entire undercarriage.

          Once the car was done blasting, I took it home and began spraying. I used Rust Bullet for the entire undercarriage, engine bay, footwells and trunk floor. It was a major undertaking. (dont get that stuff on your skin, it fuses to the skin and you will have to cut the skin off with an exacto to clean your hands.) Sprayed the first coat, brushed all the seams / crevices for the second coat, sprayed the third and fourth coats. Used new seam sealer for all the major joints and gave it another coat of Rust Bullet. Rust bullet seems to have a very tough fiinish. Its also VERY thick. I had the 1.4 spray gun at 100-85lbs (fully open) just to get a half dollar sized pattern. It took forever.

          Ive just completed priming the interior, engine bay and trunk. Base coat and clear later today. This is my first time ever painting. I keep telling myself "its not a cream puff resto, its a track car."

          I still need to strip the bumpers, roof and rear quarters. Once that is complete, I will hire someone to actually do the exterior painting. I have run out of ambition to actually paint the entire car.

          Enough chatting. On to the pictures from last week.......

          Cheers, Jason

              Kudos for making a well thought out plan and then going all out. Especially referring to sliding back the firewall for the s54 and starting out with a basket case of a car. Should be a blast when finished.

                    Nice meeting you. glad to hear your project is coming along. Out of curiosity, did you make your own throttle cable housing? I should be tackling that next, it would be nice to see some other examples.

                        that's my car at Ben's shop -- the sterling one you saw. It's been there a while, glad I left it on the stock wheels for that. Are you the guy Ben said wanted to buy my seats

                        Jason -- give us some updates!!!

                            Its a roller.

                            motor is in.
                            subframes are in.
                            suspension is in.
                            waiting on driveshaft / linkage.

                            car is off at the body shop for paint. patiently waiting like a kid at christmas.

                            purchased almost everything needed now......
                            next..... major assembly: floating brakes, abs, tiltons, wiring, plumbing.

                            I have always wanted a "sterling" car. I have searched high and low. It is the ever-illusive m3 .... you know.....the one you can never find. (i think its a lot more rare than henna.) I have only seen two for sale in 5 years....... both were horrid timing. one was a week after i quit my job to start my own business. (to make matters worse, dave have a REALLY nice one. Man, your car looks good. )

                            sorry, no recent photos.
                            here is a pic from a couple months ago....
