Project Parked Car - Pics added

Postby celicamonkey » Tue Mar 20, 2007 7:30 pm

After 5 years of owning my GT I finally got an all-trac in January. 129k on the clock for $3,000. After a couple weeks of owning it I slid on ice and hit a parked car. Hence the project name parked car. It was not too bad, but it did damage the hood and bumper. Instead of going the cheap way I decided to do a full rc front conversion.

Here is the list of parts waiting to go on
    Full OEM RC hood kit
    Full OEM RC bumper kit
    JDM corners
    60mm 3 gauge pillar pod
    60mm Defi-Link Meter BF boost gauge
    Bayarea FMIC
    HKS bov
    MBC

I almost hit a parked car from sliding on ice in a parking lot, when i realized i wasn't stopping i threw it in reverse and started to spin them backwards...stopped just in time. My balls were in my stomach for a week following the incident.

Good luck with the project...

You finally moved your boxes so Jess would STFU huh? Good call.

Looks good so far...hopefully I'll have some time soon to lend a hand.

Your body is in a little bit of a rough shape. Any plans for that?

The paint and body are actually in pretty good shape minus the one little damage on the rear fender and the front obviously. Once i get a place with a garage i'm going to get body work and paint on it.

I'm not sure. I got the entire hood and bumper kit from speedtoys.biz. $895 for the hood kit and $580 for the bumper kit. :shock: heh. Spent about half what I bought the car for on the new bumper and hood.
