did you end up putting a spoiler on it? i've been looking for one for my 82 J2000 hatchback... any thoughts loving the tread, can't wait to see more.
No I didn't. I couldn't find one to buy, plus I like the looks of it now anyway.They're way too hard to find. Could always add later on down the road
HOWEVER, I was at a party where there was a first gen with front spoiler(I was shocked..), never found out who owns it, and I didn't want to be the kind of guy who decided to grab my tools out of my trunk and steal it haha. So needless to say, I couldn't ask if he would sell it for a pretty penny.
As for an update on the car since I haven't posted on here for a while...
So, we took the car to another place the day I got back from Gagetown, and the next day he called and said he had it running. It's been out there for a week or two now though and hasn't had anymore done to the car(The guy doing it, had his motor blow up so obviously he has to get his needs done first), but I don't mind because the car is RUNNING.
Need to get a driveshaft cut and we can drive it(cautiously with no brakes ahahah) I also picked up a few goodies for it.
My two jobs aren't giving me too much work at the moment, so I'm in a situation where I kind of need some money.
I need money bad enough I'm trying to sell my Nova. It's been my project since even before I had my lisence haha.
However, if the nova sells, I get money to 1)finish the hatchback(SWEET?), 2) make Brittany happy and buy stuff for the apartment, 3) BUY A '55, and 4) and as of tonight, finish my 90 z24 ahahah.
Also, if the car sells, I'm going on a hunt for a t56 6-speed to shove in the hatchback, and paint it finally. I have to do the body completely over because the lazy prick that was suposs to do my wiring originally left it outside for over a month in rainstorms...but on the plus side, I think I found someone to paint my car for cheap, and who is actually a fantastic painter.
I was at the car show trying to sell leftover parts I had in the fleamarket, and went for a walk and seen this!
ALL original 1987 RS 'vert. An older lady owns it and said it works like new. It is soooo clean, and has nothing wrong with it.
She was even complaining she can't get door sweeps for it ahah.
This was probably the saddest sight at the car show (for me at least.)
I got a little bored not doing too much work or anything, so I decided to try and get the body done on my 90 z24 tonight. Knowing the way my life is going, I probably won't get my hatchback back for a week or two, so I thought it'd be a good idea to work the body so I can paint it and have it done before I get the hatchback back. I'm going to paint the car myself, and if I do a good enough job on it, I might just do the hatchback myself and not get the other buddy to paint it for me haha.
here's a picture of the car half an hour after I started.
I took the fender off, and I'm going to order a new one tomorrow. I took the spoiler off to clean up the rust that was on the trunk, also took the taillights out to do a better job.
I'm painting this car a funky silver color, and having all blue accents on the car. (already painted my 3.4 blue and a few other odds + ends so why not)
Also, here's a picture of my girlfriends 4-door 94 cav trying to fit in at a car club meeting.
That's my update for right now.
I can't wait to get the hatchback back so I can start working on it again. (I have dreams about it at night, so it's kind of bad I haven't had it for 1-2 months now hahaha)
