Vince/PStar's Galant Colt Discussing

Recommended Posts

Riding home from work on pushbike Thursday night and one of these past me. I was all 'wow Wtf is that! That is cool and I want it!'.

I've never seen one before. It was a grey or gunmetal grey colour.

Are they very rare in nz? Very cool car.

Yay to modgies but definitely turbos would be better. I'm stoked my hb wagon came with a set of turbos.

 

Haha, they weren't super rare but most of them have rusted to death and used in paddocks etc so not toooo many left on the road now.

 

Wheels are very much a temp measure to get it rolling/going plus the idea is to spend as little money as humanly possible on it... buying the wrong bits isn't helping my case much haha.

 

There's actually a couple for sale at the moment which is nice

For some reason I always picture old Mitsi's in some form of turd gold , so I guess it's kind of fitting.
edit: also think those wheels are perfect haha

Oh my yes, I hope he has found those pillar vents now though!

Yeah, not a fan of that gold stuff personally... don't mind the wheels tbh but the exhaust tip is rancid lol... the factory steering wheels on these is rad, dunno why you would change it... shame I also don't have one lol.

I'm a fan of turd gold... I'm seriously considering a dark bronze sorta colour for this thing when it gets to fill rather than cutting holes... along these lines:

I'll punch you in the pleasure pole if you paint it high gloss metallic rust.

 

lol, come visit :P

 

Have no clue on colour at this point but I like the idea of some bronze/poobrown concoction

 

in reality I suck at painting so will probably spray it in whatever colour rustguard works best, and spray it on the lawn ;)

Awesome, still need to confirm exactly what's missing which will be a bit tricky until I put it back together, pretty sure I need outer door handles, definitely need a grill. Have a steering wheel but it's missing the bit that attaches the horn button etc so a wheel may be handy too, putting an 1800 in so motor bits less useful... I guess it depends on what you want for everything but keen to keep acquiring necessary bits
