Sweet, how much for an intake pipe like that for the KA?

Re: The "Retired" 510

I've got a confession. I've been home for two weeks and all I've done to the 510 is take the cheese grater to the driver side quarter and taillight panel. I really like having a layer of paint over the filler, helps a ton in finding the lows and highs. Protip- don't wait as long as I did to shape yo...

That went smoother than expected.

One or two runs and, you can see in the roof where I want overlapping enough.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Is it sacrilegious to replace panels that have no rust? Because I want a new quarter and taillight panel. Just seems like a ton of wasted work that may or may not fail later on. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what I now know about working with filler. But Jesus, I have a solid drivetrain, great br...

Re: The "Retired" 510

It's not too bad. I have a couple of those moisture absorbers for RV's. I keep getting flash rush in the same spot, the license plate spot. I sand it off and it comes back a few days later. Makes me scared to paint it. Lol https://s14.postimg.cc/z2ceso5sh/20180410_123215.jpg https://s14.postimg.cc/3...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I'm hoping to spray Wednesday or Thursday. Then I've gotta fill the garage back up with all the body panels and clean up. I finished masking for the last time earlier. Tomorrow I'm gonna blow all the dirt out with air. Then after the dust settles overnight I'll do a final clean, then finally spray. ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I know, I know... :?

It's just hard for me to decide if it's ready. Haha

I'll be gone a month and a half or so, that should be a good test to see how well my epoxy primer adheres.

Re: The "Retired" 510

I called the company that makes the 60cm one, and the ruler is older than anyone that works there so none of them know. I think you might be right on the right track about the swingarm possibility. But what throws me off about that is the level so slight adjustment in the brackets, maybe 5° adjustme...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Harbor freight for both. $20 for the gun after the 20% off coupon, $23 for the 25lb of walnut. https://s14.postimg.cc/nyt7iw9ip/20180404_154644.jpg As you can see, it's everywhere. I'm about 80% through this 25lb. The gun seems to work as it should, not that I have any experience to go on. And the m...

Re: The "Retired" 510

So I got a siphon feed blasting gun and a big box of walnut shells. It makes getting paint out of tight areas an easy task. I tried to get the gun with the lowest CFM rating, the box said 3.2CFM average, which sounded way too low but I ignored it and turns out the gun uses 13CFM, lol. I'll bet the o...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Ahhh, okay. I guess it's the wheel arches that throws me off, the brazing isn't so pretty... I avoided the rear glass as long as I could. So I popped it out. I'm getting so much better at doing this. Thick vacuum line seems to do the trick, or rope... https://s14.postimg.cc/izqjcy25t/20180402_205512...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I'll have to get a set of nubbed punches for things like that. I was able to get the end of the pin in my vice, from there I thought it would be easy but I just ended up chewing up the end of the roll pin... I cut out the bad section of the passenger side rocker and cut a little more off the driver ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

About to spread my final skim coat in the low spots, for the top section since I decided to narrow the focus to the top, bottom section will come next. I broke through to bare metal in a couple spots sooner than I wanted, for this I hit with the pointy body hammer being careful not to hit the filler...

Re: The "Retired" 510

When I found out my turnbuckle was too short, I got online and looked for 6mm threaded ones since mine was 1/4" threaded. Anyway, they make them but they are all about the same length (3.3-4"). So I checked eBay for the OEM part and instead found a rear brake cable kit from Raybestos, come...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Couple more pieces of the handbrake puzzle. This is the pivot bolt I used, pretty perfect for this application. Can't remember what it's from, sway bar end link maybe? Just had to drill the holes in the mount a bit bigger. Looks like the original bolt was M8 and there must have been a bushing to ada...
