    air cleaner details. because, everyone wants to know details about a 4M air cleaner. this particular one is a very early one which has the vent pipe coming into the bottom and also the sides of the thing are part of the top, rather than the normal ones which have the sides as part of the bottom. the later ones also have 3 clips round the edge. this one does not have that, so its aesthetically more pleasing, you can picture it in your mind as you're doing your yoga. im glad we've had this talk. 2018-12-12_05-18-48 by sheepers, on Flickr

    The colour is thinned 1 to 1 but you can put a little bit back in the tin that's been thinned, it won't affect it.

    yea pretty much. colour you can put back in the tin what you dont use and once you've sprayed the colour you have a rough idea how much clear you'll need. im just using cheap clear for engine bits and that so its no drama if a tiny bit goes in the bin. i would say i mixed about 20mils to much clear so i got it fairly close. probably only had one instance that i can think of where i wasted a bunch of clear.

    the boot floor was rusty as. wasn't sure what to do with it or how it would clean up etc. 2018-12-07_05-43-49 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-12-07_05-43-38 by sheepers, on Flickr so i asked Brent @Mr Vapour if he could come to mine with his wet blasting rig and clean it all up. and he did just that. you could grind, hack, sand and fuck around for a month and not get it as good as he did in an hour. i now know exactly what im dealing with and everything is clean and ready for whatever happens next. tripple A plus, will trade again. 2018-12-07_05-43-26 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-12-10_07-18-50 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-12-10_07-19-01 by sheepers, on Flickr

    i modified a sedan rear bumper to fit this because the origionla bumper off it was rusty. the sedan bumpers are lower on the edges and the ccurve for the chrome bit is different in the corners so i welded some little bits in. its going to get dipped then ill paint it. 2018-11-11_12-23-12 by sheepers, on Flickr 2018-11-11_12-23-22 by sheepers, on Flickr also i installed some relays for the starter, choke and ignition power. also installed an electric fan. ill remove the stock fan, its not fitting right and i couldnt be fucked with it. 2018-11-11_12-23-29 by sheepers, on Flickr

    been fucking around with the tune trying to get it to run right. like a fucking douche bag i only fed power to the auto choke and not to the fuel cut solenoid (it doesn't actually cut fuel because it would run without power to it but whatever) and because of that i couldn't get it to run right. amazingly when i fed power to the things that should have power it ran perfectly. ive got all the brakes bled up and they work fucking mint too. ive hooned it around the block a few times and it drives really well, the shocks and springs are premo and the auto seems to work really well. now its on to finishing the rust work and get it back on the road. 2018-11-04_12-15-54 by sheepers, on Flickr

    and away it goes. i hope the new owner gets all he wants from the ownership. i learned some things while building this car. mainly that my heart wasn't in it, it had to many doors and i just wasn't in to it. I really struggled for motivation towards the end and thats SO not me. anywho, lessons learned. on to the coupe. 2018-11-02_07-48-39 by sheepers, on Flickr
