Finally got everything installed today. The Alltrac hood, CS bumper, JDM clear corners, and clear sigmal lamps make the car look great. Plus I got Ben's carbon fiber pieces because he had wet sanded them and made them look dang near new.

I sprayed some fresh paint with my new Kobalt spray gun. It made the paint lay down thicker than the crappy one I used to paint the car a couple months ago. Looks much better. I only spayed the hood. bumper, head lights and fender panels. I'll do the back half in a couple weeks.

I also installed the rebuilt power steering pump and high pressure line I got from him also. So no more fluid coating my under carriage. I pressure washed under the car to make it look clean again.

I also installed the poly motor mount inserts he gave me. Makes a world of difference on getting the power to the ground.

So thank you Ben for giving me so much stuff. It meant a lot to me.

Yeah, John is sad. I've planned to drive over to his house a couple times already and couldn't make it. So the the Dragon no show didn't help matters. It also didn't help that I gave Bugs my dragon money. I have priorities. Cars and guns are my downfall.

As soon as Chaos gets running I'm going to take Murg on Pine Belt run. That will be good enough for me.

Looks good!

So no Dragon? Explain this to me. I am a little hard of understanding some times. I happen to need a driver to get back to Knoxville without loading Chaos back up...

If I drive Chaos up there how I do get home?

Or was that the plan..

Actually you would drive the wife's truck back up silly man.

As for getting you home... hell I don't know, how far away is Bugs?

Lets paint your car while your here.

Murgatroy

What color?

Cause the matte black is seriously growing on me.

Hookecho
05-05-2011, 02:27 AM
Black.

Is that primer your car is painted with.

Murgatroy
05-05-2011, 02:31 AM
No, it is flat paint, the $1 cans from Wal-Mart.

Hookecho
05-05-2011, 02:39 AM
That's better. If it was primer it would have to be completely removed. Paint can be sanded and the new paint will adhere.

If we get lucky and get Chaos running ahead of schedule we may paint it.

That's if you want to.

I am up to it. The paint job she has now is crap. It was a couple hour hack job just trying to make her one color.

Im giving us 8 hours for engine swappage and cleanup. The rest will be spent drinking beer and doing things that people who drive halfway across the country
do when they do these things, whatever that may be

Hookecho

We'll be into it for way more than 8 hours.

You guys are gonna paint over my Nascar style name labels. Murg, Im very fond of those.

Murgatroy

Maybe we can do some stenciling or magnetic name tags.

What is the original color of Chaos? Are the door jambs still the original color?

Murgatroy
05-05-2011, 06:52 PM
Red. The door jambs, under hood and so forth are all red. I would prefer to keep her matte black though. I still have some body work to fix.

Your phone must be screwed up, you have sent me the same text eight times now.

Whatever. Brucie talks to me on the job. He gets some interesting shit going on while hes on the phone with me.

Like today, 3 people rolled up on him while he was parked under a shade tree talking to me, one of them was some deputy sheriff chick from Atlanta that got a speeding ticket in Jackson. Some other guy found some credit card (one of those "you qualify for x amount" and they send you a fake looking card) and wanted to make sure it didnt "fall into the wrong hands" or some shit. Then one of his commanders rolled up on him and gave him some pizza and they BSed for a few. He had me on headset and I dont think anyone knew I was on there with him.

Its always an adventure talking to Bruce while hes working.

Tomorrow we'll conduct some traffic stops together. Maybe you'll hear me get cursed out.

What are you guys doing to prep the old paint?

Specifically how much time do you spend sanding and what grit?

Hookecho
05-05-2011, 11:21 PM
I answer most of the time. Sometimes I'm busy with work when you call me and I'm horrible at returning calls. I sorry Timah.

We didn't prep Chaos. This time I guess we will scotch brite her.
