2/21/02. paid the man

$18 tax, $11 title fee.



the ghetto paint shop is closed #8


word up. painting (primer) is done. sanded down some bits and painted over everything.
spent a crapload of time cleaning the thing too.

GC5 subaru weighs roughly 2470 lbs w/o driver

-will weigh ae86 when its legal to drive to the recycle center. cops hang out there.

-need to put gas in car. currently has fuel system cleaner that isnt mixed with more than 2 gallons of gas. causes really un-smooth engine.
-front turn signals don't workr. whatever, not important
-the rear lights all work
-bumpers and tyres + armor all tire shiny stuff = clean and kind of shiny. it looks pretty good
-the car dosnt look like a ghetto P.O.S anymore. at least not that bad.
-i was inspired (probbly by the fumes) to polish the valvecover.
4 hours of fun got me to spray the sucker down hardcore with PB penatrating spray
(stuff so strong it will eat an entire styrofoam cup within 2 minutes guarenteed),
and then de-grease and sand the thing for hours. its got a MOTHER's shine

o-well, shiny means fast, but actual fast cost $$, we dotn have $$$, so we opted for shiny instead.

clean white car with shiny engine cover!

word in the garage #6 sunday:2/18/02


-today was a continuation of kaptain bondo's project from yesterday. although the option was presented, the non-bondo route was taken. motor was flushed out with 4 minute engine clean, oil filter did not have rubber seal coming out as thought of, instead a left over seal from last oil filter made it look like seal had fallen out. o well, too bad, engine is now cleaner.
-valve cover got cleaner, you can actually see TOYOTA on the engine. wow
-afternoon was spent sanding passenger door with not so diesel powersander. took a long time. spray primer'ed white color somwhat similar to toyota super-white. fun stuff. smells funny now
- door panel is seprated from actuall door structure. hmm just like the hatch!. will need some rivits or bolts or welding later
