A lil Coupe update

So here's a little update (sorry been working alot and have no life)

Just a quick picture of the car lowered with Saleen Racecraft springs



Main news, I picked up 1 other polished cobra wheel (already had 1 spare) so I can mount some Drag radials on them, and not tear up my nitto's when I go to the track. Maybe this will get me to the track more often too lol...

Picked these up as well, although now that I have my other cobra wheel, these will be up for sale shortly:




car needs some love, I picked up the door to body weatherstripping kits from LRS last weekend, need to get those changed out, before it starts raining. Thats about it....I'll post up more when I get it :)

So finally got a little bit of work done. I've been procrastinating for some reason. So I finally got off my butt and got some work done.

Spent today working on my Explorer Gt40 upper intake. This thing looked like it was set on fire and beat with a wet chain. So I gave it a little love today:

Got started with the paint stripper:








All cleaned up ready for primer:










1st Copy of Primer:


2nd Coat:


3rd Coat:


Final Coat:


Lower fins prepped:






Plan is to Paint it black, clear it over and polish up the intake plate. Letting the primer dry and then on to the black :)

and these new center caps were given to me by a good friend, cause she's just that cool!
