They're not really hood pins, haha. Just bolts with wing nuts... :disappoin but I'll hit up a junkyard and find a hood, and make it work with the latch. I might bungee it down for extra security so it doesn't fly open on the highway...Those are the thinnest hood pins I've ever seen! Mine are 1/2 inch chrome moroso ones. I went with hood pins on mine, but its not a carbon fiber hood at least. I went through the metal, I just masking taped over the paint so it wouldn't chip when I made it through. Those door panels are from a car with my interior color. I'm surprised someone went through the time and effort to change all the panels but not the headliner.
Haha. The color I don't mind... it's the odd bondo'd fender flares that I hate. I don't know whether to remove the flares, sand down the bondo and repaint or try fixing the two busted front flares... I need the bumpers and hood painted so I might as well get the fenders re-sprayed, right?pure classic blue rice
wondering if prev owner was a Honda Civic lover maybe?
but hey, it's a project car, so have best of luck and lots of fun with that Chris
for $900 it's worth the price ... just looks a tad ugly now hehe
Thanks! The guy I bought it from wasn't courteous enough to let me keep his old license plate. So instead of going plateless I figured I would use my old camry's license plate number, which only expired in February. Didn't get pulled over! so that's all that matters haha.I really like the license plate cardboard =D
Good find :thumbsup:
Already started, buddy. First thing to go was that wing. I had to climb through the back seat and manually open the trunk first. Neither the lock NOR the cable were connected so it would not open. Plus that wing weighed it down so damn much. It was at least 20 pounds. Then it was glued and taped and bolted in. So now I've got holes and glue on the trunk. But here's some updated pictures, including some goodies I found when I got in the trunk (previous owner was never able to get in the trunk so he had no idea what was in there!)At 900$, it's worth de-ricing that car and bring it back to some glory :thumbsup:
