    75% of the welding is complete . Hopefully tonight me and pops can do some more and i hope by wednesday to have wiring and interior back in , thursday gas tank back in as well as suspension and drive shaft and exhaust. at that point were looking at a complete car and its body work time. Im really pushing to get this car done guys just have alot to do. If anyone knows of a decently priced third brake light keep a look out for me !! i still need one !


    ----------

    Depending on the PPG rep my farther is close with and if he can hook us up with black diamond I will do it, well see not getting my hopes up . if not its staying raven black but im happy either way just want it done.

    I feel like the flames could have been executed better. I mean, they look nice, but they just don't flow with the rest of the car. Granted, you are missing some of the panels for said "flow", but still, COME ON! BUSH LEAGUE STUFF!

    Oh believe me I know it's just paint alone over 1000 that's why we need some hookup from the rep so keeping fingers crossed!

    Re: Eddie's 04 V hit revive and rebuild thread !

    Hey giuys i have been slacking with the updates and been meaning to get on here a feed you guys some pictures ive been staying down at a friends jersey shore house the past couple days got home today so heres some pictures..

    before the filler
    heres the bottom frame rocker where two steel plates were welded as support.
    Heres the plates and the floor resealed and quick cover up with a spray can.
    Interior made its way from my basement back into the car !
    heres the out side of the frame rocker where we cut open after the welding was done to add yet one more steel support inside and then bent it back up and welded it shut and bondo over it.
    finished my front breaks (ignore my mistake of painting over the rubber bleeder cap i got new ones lol )

    Tinted my fogs sprayed with night shade then cleared over using PPG clear coat.

    same with the side markers
    and lastly heres how it sits now



    Okay so heres what needs to be done for it to be done
    Body work must be completed before we can take it to the paint booth/ Shooting for saturday morning
    the door jams need to be sprayed so the back half of interior can go back in
    I need tires which i am being taken care of and buying from a local member ! woooooo
    Third break light ! once again another member is coming through
    rear bumper brackets

    And Inspection
    were in the home stretch !

    Actual camera pictures.









    ----------

    Question I have a pair of HID slim balast in my garage from my AMG and i know this has been beaten to death , I pluged them in and got nothing , went for my relay kit and realized the wires werent long enough and read that it wasnt needed should be a plug and play. perhaps the ballast went bad? i dont see how they were tucked away safe im going to order some new bulbs and try again but just curious on imput.
