Interesting, hurry and get back to put on.
Been back for a few weeks now. And got busy on the 6 speed swap. Enjoy:
Got the car in the garage, general clean up interior
Planned on getting it done in 5 days, started late had 4 (spoiler alert, Iím missing some bolts so had to abandon on day 4)
Gonna try to adapt this genome muffler (2.5Ē) to my stock L 1.5Ē mid pipe
Some precise removal, rust free makes it easy as pie
Decided to undercoat the whole undercarriage. Hope it wasnít a mistake. I used por15 degreaser, with some amazon drill head bristle brushes to scrub the whole chassis. Then cleaned with some left over tar wax remover and finished with denatured alcohol. Let it air dry for 24h, then undercoated w a light single layer.
