What you are doing right now is exactly what I want to do... I just can't afford it, LOL. One of these days... looks like so much fun!
On the S15 yeah? It did look odd from the pic, I guess I know why

The S15 has the full Behrman GT Technora kit.

It's a glossy finish, just looks bad in the pic.

Spent the day removing the crossmember, subframe, fuel tank, all lines, heat shields, and any hardware on the underside of the car.

Then, had a blast degreasing the entire underside of the car. Seriously my favorite part of the build. /sarcasm





I guess a better before and after would be once the fresh undercoat is on the car. Hopefully that'll be sorted this week.

Crappy picture, but these are all of the items being sent off tomorrow to be completely refinished in a matching color.



Back to using my actual camera rather than all cell phone quality pictures. This shot definitely captures the color a lot better.

Never mind the panel fitment up front. Fenders will be properly fitted once my hardware comes in.

Prepping the KA for my younger brother’s red kouki.

This is going into the S14:



Just cleaning a lot of it up. No wiring or hardlines against the firewall.

Here’s a much better “after” shot now that undercoating is complete.



Interior comes out tomorrow. Ordered about 200sq ft of sound deadening to cover the interior and trunk. Once the suspension comes back from paint, it’ll all be quick reassembly on the subframe, crossmember, suspension and brakes.

White zenki is long gone. Rusty screws on the sunroof delete panel and excessively pulled rear quarters. Just not my cup of tea.

Took some better pictures with my camera, but this is the only one I snagged on my phone.

Laying down the sound deadening hasn’t been overly difficult. Should have it all done by Wednesday. Then, interior pieces will make their way back into the car.

Fortunately, everything Ive acquired was spread out over the years. So, it wasnt like I just clicked buy it now on these things in a week. I recently made a spreadsheet to see how deep I would be into this build by basing it on retail pricing on parts as well as the average going rate for the rare bits. It is over $50k and continues to climb.

Heres a better pic of the color I went with on the cage, calipers, and other suspension components.



Interior sound deadening is almost complete.

I will update this come Thursday.

I'm surprised you didn't paint match the interior of the chassis?

Haha, yeah.

Honestly, I decided against painting the interior because I had planned on installing a lot of sound deadening as well as running a full interior.

If this were a track car with a fully stripped/caged interior, I definitely would have made the extra effort by paint matching the interior.

The important and visible areas were all properly painted. Unless someone decides to pull apart the interior in the future, you wont see a spec of white on this.

Ive also had minimal distractions these past two months. Parts of me wish I had focused on my hatch instead, but Im just glad Im making progress. Ill be moving in 2018. The more assembled these cars are, the easier the move will be.

This is what a lot of true enthusiasts would strive for if we had the funds and patience to build a car to this level. The attention to detail is unreal. stripping everything for a paint job of that caliber, undercoating the car, oem aero, wheel and parts selection , THAT sr setup. Can't wait to see this shit done, so many years of collecting and waiting to see it finally come together. Definitely something to keep for life.
