PostSubject: Marshalls DX *Pre "Under the Knife"*   Tue 25 Aug 2009, 11:32 pm

This is going to be a Giant project log as I rip apart my new 94 DX Coupe.
*Again* Picked the car up from my friend Alex for $800 and my old MTX system.
As you will see.. the car was origionally TEAL Evil or Very Mad Crying or Very sad scratch But Alex decided to spray bomb it flat black. *Thank god...*






The car came with
some sick suspension *Ill find the brand later, all I saw was the $800 reciept for it haha*
Tekno Blue Coil overs ~2inch drop
Spectre SRI
DC headers
Custom 2.5 inch Cat back exhaust and muffler
Short Shift (The name escapes me right now)
Upgraded clutch and flywheel
Engine was swapped for a D16Y7 Motor, Car still has stock trans
Ill add more as I remember / change anything

When i got the car, the front passenger caliper had a bolt missing and had been sliding open as Alex drove home from Lake Orion to Oak park. >< So first thing first, comes the new Calipers! Thanks for S&G auto on 12 Mile in Berkley for these, $45 + a $15 core desposit that I got back.
You can see the old Caliper hanging off and the brand new one on.. What a difference that made.. lol (I know its stock ish, but shit.. I want the car running.. why spend tons on "special" Calipers when I can get the car fixed sooner..


So, after bleeding the Calipers and what Not I come to find the bleeder screw on the back driver side is ... broken off! wooot! cheers
So now I need to Buy new Drum Calipers for the back.
**Update 8/25** Still have not had the chance to do this. Ive been too busy to work on the car, with buying my girlfriend a ring and with her Birthday coming up.. soon though!

So after the Calipers were done I still had no break pressue... Now I have to buy a new Master Break Cylinder.
**Update 8/25** Still havent had the chance to work on the car.

As I was doing the Calipers, I found out the joints on my control arms, and my half shafts were garbage.. Idk how the wheel was still on there.. So I currently am getting ready to order brand new arms with joints, and half shafts as well as my master cylinder. Ill update with progress pics.

Along the way on Xceedspeed I found a great deal. AN EG coupe bumper AND headlights for $50. As you can see in the pictures I was in need of those, pretty bad. rabbit
Here is what the new lights look like. Yes stock, but Im working 1 piece at a time.. Ill eventually get something better.. Im just showing improvements at this point..
THEN

NOW


The new bumper is red currently, so Im waiting to paint the car for that.. but those details come later.


Sooot hat is how the car stands right now. But I figure I should tell you all ... or show you how it will look when Im done.. Yes... the picture is an 01, But it will be the same color, and I will have a CF hood, which I have on hold right now cheers


Right now Im planning to have the car driving by next month. I just have alot to save for, and starting college isnt helping. However, by next summer The car will be blue, and Ill definitely have a little something extra from my friends at Speed Industry. Ill update as time goes on! Stay tuned Cool
Id also love any thoughts / comments / ideas!

Thanks,
Marshall *Beyond The Limits*

Yeah, I really cant wait. Im having ION_C2 from Xceed go with me to make a custom turbo sometime. I dont want insane numbers to be honest.. Ill wait till I buy my STI for that.. but this is going to be my first real project car and ill drive it all summer.. so it has to be fun when I want to drive the hell out of it, but reliable when I dont.

**UPDATE 8/26** Hell yeah! HUGE MAD FUCKING PROPS to Dequan and his friends for hooking me up today.. They came over to have our first meet up at my house and after talking and hanging with them, they gave me MINT seats, both front ones, and new back seats.. top and bottom. Along with the passenger side control arms and a master break cylinder!! As well as new door panels! NO MORE SPRAY BOMBED SHIT IN MY CAR!! We started working around 9:30 and at 10 sadly my parents started bitching because they have to work early..(being 18 and at home sucks sometimes .. >< ) We got the back seats in, and front passenger, as well as the panels. Tomorrow we have to bend the bracket on the front driver side and bolt it in! After that comes the cylinder and arms.. and Im going to pray the car is strong tomorrow..

Ill be up at 8AM to go to Dequan's to loosten his wheel lugs and help with some suspension.. then its back here to finish the car. Ill update with pics tomorrow
Maybe a video or two as well..
