Yep, I'm doing another one, MT 18 as usual!

Work in progress? Car partially underway? If you want a spot to dedicate to the work this is where you'll want to go.

the sanding seems to be coming along very nicely
whos the old guy?? he seems to be doing alot of work hahahha jk
keep us updated


Yes, there are dual coilovers on each side of the rear end of my jag. It's a very heavy duty, overbuilt rear end. If you think that it's complicated to have four shocks and springs, you should try to get any shop to do an alignment on it.

That said, it handles better than any car I've ever been in.

that OLD MAN, is my uncle, he's 68 yrs old, has emphysema and STILL smokes 2-3 packs of ciggarettes a day.

I say let him breathe the dust.


yea, I liked the original port myself, but it my idiotic nature that forgot the measure distance from the rear... and from there on I never could make the port as good again, I'm working with the bondo right now to make it nice. Almost done sanding bondo...

I'll be spraying on the filler/paint coats this afternoon, and sanding those... As well as making the amp rack (I have no idea how I want it to look...)

they do make a spray primer that is a filler also....not good for anything large that you need to fill in.....but does well on little stuff...

I found that filler primer at pepboys... yes, it's only good for 60grit scratches, even a 1mm hole is too big for that stuff... yay, looks like I have a LOT of 1-5mm craters (all about .5mm deep) to bondo over carefully tomorrow morning...

pics so far, 320grit smooth!:

Yea, I had to build three of these little 6'x12' decks around my work today, evidently a fire exit isn't good enough if you open the back door and you fall into a ditch...

that's why I didn't get much work done on the box, but tomorrow I will have all day!

yea, the funny part to me, is that now, instead of falling into a ditch, you are stuck on a WOODEN deck... with no exit. On the other side of the ditch is a barbed wired fence for the Oceana Naval Airforce Base, the nearest exit is a 300ft trek around the building via - the ditch.

I love our fire marshall for requiring this...

only 1.5 gallons, I didn't think the 2nd gallon would last, but it has.
