Re: Hurricane VS My car

i def don't wanna cut it in half, and i know it CAN be fixed. but i also don't wanna put another 2-3k in paint and body work fixing it when i can buy a roller for cheaper. i bought this car cause the body was almost perfect, and i didn't have to do any paint and body. i hate dealing with paint and body work. i still gotta finish the suspension so i can make it a roller again, then get it on the frame machine

Re: Hurricane VS My car

you are gonna spend more than that putting parts on it that you have already

-subframes
-rear suspension
-hardened axles
-gears
-front suspension (if it was ordered already)
-headers
-exhaust
-sn body intake

theres alot of mone to be spent if you are going to an sn body, you are pretty much just starting with a longblock since the transmission really isnt what you want either.

there is nothing wrong with top and tailing a car, it iss as strong or stronger than stock due to the extra welds that will be put in.

whew...im glad that $40 tps sticker is still ok

Re: Hurricane VS My car

i know people do it all the time, i just would rather not have that done to my car. prob gonna try to pull it on a frame machine to see if it will come straight, found a parts car lx hatch 4cl for 250. so if i can use most of the parts off it i might. i just hate body work. would rather start over on another car than mess with body work.

Re: Hurricane VS My car

dont mess with bodywork, let troy do it.you dont need a top and tail more than likely, probably just change the passenger a pillar and fenders and hood and let it go. your fender aprons arent even bent,other than the a pillar, its really minor damage, and the bent subframe is lagnaippe, that is a weak point and honestly un important in the scheme of things, i can pull it down if it makes you feel better but its not hurting anything.

Re: Hurricane VS My car

i talked to madman about it. he said pull it straight, and then he'll make me full length subframe connectors to go over the part of the frame that is bent. i'm goin look at that other car to see what kind of shape it's in.

Re: Hurricane VS My car

the bent part on the subframe doesent need to be pulled on, its weak metal, it doesent even have the car flexed, that can be fixed with a slide hammer...your biggest issue is getting that a pillar to match the door right so it doesent have wind noise the subframe is very minor

and we have full length subframes that will cover that in stock

Re: Hurricane VS My car

not yet, but will be soon. 91 coupe black on black orig a AOD but has been converted to a 5 speed.

oh the irony, my blue car is and orig 5 speed but is now an auto, and my black one was orig a auto and is now a 5 speed. LOL
so to sum it up, i'll have a 92 Hatch Bimini Blue with Black Interior and a 91 Coupe Black with black interior.

gonna just keep the coupe as a driver, prob just some bolt ons, cam, and a blower

i think i have a disease or something. LOL
