Well yours turned out a million time better than mine. Lol. I just used the "ford blue" engine paint from VHT I think. There is alot of purple in the color and I've since decided to go with a gunmetal next time the cover is off.

Well I haven't been on here in a while. Here is another roof rack pic.



I'm still working on my gauges. I haven't had much time to work on them lately. They are mounted but need to be fully hooked up and I need to make the vacuum face.

So I have some bad news. I was leaving work on Monday and noticed the car seemed a bit underpowered as I got on the freeway. I quickly pulled off and into a parking lot and noticed the engine was knocking. Sooo, it sat there till Tuesday after work when my buddy towed me home.



The car is in the driveway and thatís where itís gonna sit for a while. It was almost 2 quarts low on oil which Iím sure was why it did what it did. There are no puddles where it gets parked so I am sure itís been burning it without me noticing. (I know, shame on me for not checking the oil frequently on a 10 year old car).


Has this happened to anybody else? What did you do?


I am keeping it and once I have money I am going to rebuild it and get the little guy on the road again. The unfortunate part is Iím not going to have money for a while. So, for now itís gonna sit. I still want a boost setup and this would be the perfect time to do all of it at once but I know that is going to double or triple the cost to get it on the road again. Iím still in the shock faze but I am going to start looking into all of my options for turbo/procharger and or just a rebuild.

Any help or ideas to point me in the right direction would be nice. You guys have been great so far.
