Re: NC Panda's 20v GTSR5 years in the making

Got some of the sanding and stuff done on the filler for the firewall. Put a layer of primer on the wells and the passenger side firewall to get a better idea of where my valleys are and see what still needs attention without having to stare at the multicolored sections of metal, sanded filler, and ...

Re: NC Panda's 20v GTSR5 years in the making

Got to work on some more of the engine bay today. Not quite done still but very close. Got to start working on the filler on the firewall and, though it looks a little rough, it came out a little better than I expected. http://i1299.photobucket.com/albums/ag75/NCPanda/20130521_194444_zps0b114630.jpg...

Re: NC Panda's 20v GTSR5 years in the making

Got some pics of where the engine bay is currently. This is after the first layer of body filler. I haven't done the filler on the firewall yet, I still have a few spots to touch up first but the wheel wells and spots that I removed look about right for how they need to be. Smooth as a baby's bottom...

Re: NC Panda's 20v GTSR5 years in the making

So i forgot to grab pics but the engine bay is ready for the next round of body filler. Thankfully this layer should involve much less work since I can now see where the bulges/holes are much easier. It also feels ooh so smooth and clean. I'm getting really excited to start spraying the primer on it...

So you're saying you are going to put the pics of the 20v up still or what? You said look for it and you don't have any pics of a motor other than the 7afe. There are a ton of the body which looks nice and all but I wanted to see how that 20v looked sitting under the hood

Re: Painting corolla panda

Sand it down yourself for sure. It takes time and patience but you will def save yourself money. Also, don't go to low grit just to speed things up, you'll cut the metal and that costs more to repair in the long run. Now, depending on how much you realllly care about the outcome, you can go get some...

So I started doing some sanding on the filler and it started getting reallly dusty real quick and my face mask's were not that good.

Finally time for this to start looking like it's clean again... well, almost. The filler went on pretty well for my taste, now to let it dry and start the sanding process. Only grabbed pics of the drivers side, but you get the idea. http://i1299.photobucket.com/albums/ag75/NCPanda/20130401_180410_zp...

Re: Rear 4 links replacement

it really all depends on how your car decided to settle itself and what decided to seize up. Mine just took a little extra love. And that required tool would be a breaker bar, it's just a long bar that has a 1/4 inch socket adapter on the end that pivots. Go to HF, Autozone, (insert any place that s...

Sounds good man, minus the rust spots that may as well be a copy of the car i picked up with some pretty similar plans. I'm excited to see where you take this car haha. Where were those 86's going to the junkyards? Just curious (doubt we're looking for the same parts btw) lol
