    Default "Square One" '88 GT-S ...Is A Car Ever "Finished"

    OK, so this is a timeline of what I've done since February 2010. I picked this car up at a carlot in trade for a '95 Grand Prix and a little extra cash for tax & license....

    Not much of a looker, but had potential..Not too long after, wheels, tires, and some JDM/Euro goodies were added....


    The inrerior sucked, but I found a person in Canada that had all the stuff I needed to make it respectable...


    Some more of the transition...


    Then the lowering project...


    Cleaned up the engine bay...

    A couple months ago, a Jackass ran over my car in the parking lot at work...

    Got it fixed, and this is how he sits at the moment, waiting to re-apply emblems...


    More to come !!!!!

    Finally got a halfway decent stretch of weather coming, so I got off my duff. I gave him a much needed bath, and re-striped the repair area along with re-applying the side decals....

    He was very happy....

    Very clean GT-S. Love to see a car kept looking stockish.

    Well, it took a little over a year, but thanks to Flatliner, and an almost 8 hour round trip delivery to me, I finally got the matching front leather seats I've been looking for....

    Not perfect, but nicer than most I've seen... Just nice to have the interior pretty much done now !!!!

    Nothing too much going on right now... So busy with work and jobs in the shop afterward, not a lot of time for anything else but eat and sleep. I was getting sooooooo tired of putting front tires on every three months, I decided to do something different. I went from 205-40-16's to 205-50-16's to reduce camber, and lessen the footprint. I kinda like it, no more huge gap in the fender wells, and seems to be a little less bumpy...lol





    We'll see how well this turns out.......
