  1. This intrigues me. I can see myself doing all those mods at once. I’d like to have a 5 speed in it. So it would make sense to do it all at once. Do you have to compensate for additional carpet when you do the upholstery?
  2. You guys are awesome with your advice. If I keep my M10, I worry it will not scare me a little. I like a car car that is manageable, but can go crazy in the wrong hands (or when I want to be a little crazy). Can a M10 do that? Seriously?
  3. Hey team 2002! I am completely pulling my hair out and unable to make a decision on an engine swap. One thing for sure is the M10 is headed out - not that there is anything wrong with it - but I was some real POWER! If I can do M Power that would be great for my brand loyalty - but I am open to other ideas. I’ve even eyeballed an S2000 power plant. An S14 is out just due to cost:power ratio. (But it’s sexy). S60,S54, etc - not sure I want to cut the firewall. The bottom line - I just don’t want to lose the weight distribution. This is long term project. I am planning on reinforcements throughout the chassis to handle more power, different rear end, and whatever else I need - but keep it looking stock. Anyone struggle with these same decisions? Ultimately what decision do you make and why? Thanks! Josh
  4. Removed the dashboard yesterday. It felt great to be working on the wee car again. Life has been so busy. Dash was simpler than I expected. I had already taken out the windshield so that helped. But all the screws were simple, and after removing the steering column trim, finding two more screws it was a snap. One tricky part I ran into was the heater / vent control. Once I learned the plates popped off I was golden! The cluster is just sitting on the dash now. Funny this cluster didn’t function - and the speedo needle had been snapped off. So weird.
  5. Im all set. Just got a set. But that other gent may be interested! Thank you! We ended up fabbing one side. You’d never know it wasn’t factory.
  6. A little bit of both. All of it will be ground down to be flush for final product. It’s good to see the cancer disappear.
  7. Im all set. Just got a set. But that other gent may be interested! Thank you!
  8. Thank you for the part numbers. I did check around. Blunt had the right side - but the left I didn’t find anywhere. I’m sure someone has one with dust on it at some random parts bin. Im dropping off the fenders so they can mount them correctly and fab up the left side. 🙂 joah
  9. I’ll get some inside ones for ya. We didn’t use the whole panel. Just what we needed.
  10. I’d say that’s a major improvement!! Wow!!! Just waiting in one more part from restoration design. Then we will get the old girl back home for more of the stuff I can do on my own. It’s really exciting to see progress!!

    Wing work.

    The front end is getting some attention now. It’s been (as you would expect) a discovery project of rust. The good news - it’s not overly bad. I just bought left and right inner A pillar panels from restoration design, where I have purchased all my parts, and they are on the way. After those are on we can begin layering all the new panels together.
  12. Front floors are close to being in, and the rear passenger suspension area of the floor is set in place. More has to be done on the rear and the trunk. As well as the front inner fenders. It’s a long process - longer when you have a budget smaller than your dreams. Hahaha

    Doors and gaps.

    Nice! That’s a positive outcome!!
