  1. Got some painting done over the weekend, today going to wet sand whole car and shoot some clear hopefully.
  2. I use flickr for my images but i cant post them using the url on the desktop. Only way the show up is if i copy/paste the image link from my phone. Then they show up on the desktop site unless im the only one that can see the pictures on my end.
  3. I have a c5 vette 😁 in sliver, not the color i wanted , was looking for white.
  4. My paint is really bad. There's some pics in my resto thread. My fenders, hood have the paint extremely dry rotting i guess, its cracked all over. The roof and rear quarters buffed and polished out to a nice red shine . That's main reason for paint and the fact i picked it up like that 8 years ago i think its time to paint it. But your right im not pulling the motor this time around, but later on i will and just go black in the bay. Did that to one of my talons back in the day, plus it not a show car.
  5. Yes thats my color code, but even if i go with that the red, in my engine bay has seem to fade to a more of a orangeish red color.
  6. Yes that was me . 😅
  7. Im usually not one for color changes as you said to do it right is alot of prep work. But in my opinion there seems to be more red starquest then any other colors. Was thinking of a shade of grey.
  8. Some recent pics. I put on the center lines i had . Not 100% i like em. Also picked up some carbon fiber headlight covers. Then late June i decided to sand the car to hopefully get it painted by the end of July.
  9. So im finally getting my 86 painted this year. I started sanding a few weeks ago but only working on it an hour or two in the late afternoons. Got the hood, fenders, roof and most of the doors sanded. Now i was thinking of a color change ( from rio red), but how do you remove the door window trims? id hate for them to break on me, i already dont have a wiper cowl it crumpled when i took my wipers apart to re grease the joints. If its something where im most likely to break then i might just have it red again.
  10. Im the lone shop guy at my work, I supervisor myself lol.
  11. Lol, I shouldn't say daily, but it's the one I drive most of all my cars, maybe 3000 miles a year maybe, I have company truck I use for work, and everything else 07 Chevy Silverado , we have a gas pump on site. I didn't really get when people complained about gas prices, then I realized I haven't paid for gas in 12 years lol
  12. SO there's a 87 conquest narrow body for sale near me, Now i dont really need another car/project, but it feels as if i should not let this go by either lol. They are asking $4000 Starquest family what should i do?? Current list of cars 86 starion- current project 87 conquest widebody shell- has rust at firewall under the front windshield 95 eagle talon esi-plan to evo 4g63 swap it, have plug and play engine harness from ohm racing already 95 eagle talon tsi awd- few bolt ons, just going to paint it and no futher mods as 5sp awd trannys are pretty much unavailable anymore 2006 evo MR- daily, not modding 2000 corvette - fun car, mid life crisis purchase lol
  13. So it's working if I copy paste from my phone. So on the laptop don't pick the bbcode anymore? I just noticed that when I click on OTHER MEDIA and paste my link nothing happens. On my phone I just copy and paste and hit enter then the site automatically shows the picture.
  14. So i added some pics to my resto thread but they are not showing up, Im using flickr is it an issue with that host site? test Yup leaving out the .img fixes the issue.
  15. Heres some recent pics since the rest are gone now. Took it out for a short drive. picked up some power steering lines on FB group. Also bought a mookeeh intake adapter, not sure how i feel about the catch can no longer being under vaccum.
  16. sadly no unless there's a way to retrieve them from photobucket with out paying .
  17. I signed up in 2013 but don't remember the badges deal, I just earned 5 of them by logging in lol.
  18. Here, glad we are back, but all my pics are gone in my restore thread, bummer.
  19. Wont the rear sit lower with the mr2 inserts and the front with oe inserts? I need new struts and I want to lower the car but not slam it. I suppose I could just add a spacer in the rear with the mr2 insert and get lowering springs, but thats also where an issue arises as i cant find lowering springs.
  20. I wont be getting camper plates if not needed. Do the front housing need to be modified for mr2 inserts?
  21. I was just at one on the 24th in the Tri cities. But not just a starquest meet, mostly accords.
  22. That's why i want to see if i can use oem springs and top hats keeping cost low. I'm trying not to do any sort or coil over system. If not like you say, go D2's. But i do want to go lower then stock height. My reasoning for the shorter mr2 struts and oem springs is i would not lose strut travel and have a comfortable oem like ride but at a lower height.
  23. Sorry for a newb question. But I plan on doing the mr2 strut mod over the winter. Now I have read and reread the How To. Im not looking to do coilover sleeves. My car will never see any track time. My questions, 1. Can I reuse the stock spring perch and springs on the rear? 2. Do i need camper plates or can i use oem top hats both front and on rear? 3. On the how to it details modding the rear housings, do the fronts need modding? 4.On the how to, the mr2 rears are about two inches shorter. So in essences with the rears modded the car will sit two inches lower then stock even if I use stock springs? Overall im trying to keep cost as low as possible.
