St165 "Jasmins" The car <---- Project Thread :)

Postby MrMcQuacker » Tue Nov 05, 2013 4:27 pm

Ok so where to begin. I Have had this car since around 2007-2008ish. I was fully gutted, no interior, no carpet just bare metal. Came with no motor. I have been working on this for way to long for such little success if you ask me. When I was brand new to the alltrac scene I didn't know anything and I probably wasted close to $10k in shops in and out and nothing was really done. Long story maybe another time. So I decided to start working on it myself and man did this take forever. So ill post pics and talks about my car as I go :) I don't really have much pictures of before and after so bare with me :|

Since I did not have a motor I ended up buying a st205. This is the progress of extending and repining everything. Had lots of help from Charlie and Kreg :)

Did some suspension work :) did the front and rear. Did not finish the fronts because I can't seem to find Caster bushings. Whiteline stopped producing them for a little but they did not get back to me when they will make more.

I did not want the boost Gauge to be seen just by anyone so I improvised :) Works pretty well.

I don't really know what else to say or add for now. I am kinda already surprised that I actually did this. Been wanting to do this from the beginning of her restoration back when I actually had some before and after Pics :(. Well I guess I will just update when I can :)

Good work, man!
I find that you gotta do (almost) everything yourself, because it's hard to find someone who knows what they're doing on these cars.
Two questions:
1) what boost guage did you fit into the stock cluster?
2) the exhaust, is it off Ebay?

Exhaust was from eBay. And the. Boost gauge is just some random one I got from autozone that I tor apart just to get it the way I want it. Took forever about 3+ hours so the glue and other stuff to cure.

^Cool. Those exhausts were all over Ebay a year ago for cheap and then they went away and/or prices went way up. Good to see them back again.
