Not a bad start! Does closing up a hole on the muffler affect the overall flow?

Nice, I'd like to see it! That dual muffler would've been kind of cool too. Most people will hate on it but I bet it could've looked pretty sick.

Looks good man. Pretty straight body overall for mismatched panels. Also, bump for the home respray. Looks great.

car was starting to shape up and look decent in pics. I'm not mad at the work going on though, that's on point. at least you're working on the car.

I just take issue with the poor effort. like do you have to paint the shock mount studs and nuts on the rear? well, no... you don't. take an extra 15 min and drop the shock, mask the open holes, then spray. or do you have to overspray onto the brake lines under the rear seat and the wiring to the pump? again, no. just takes time. I get the whole 'low budget/free parts' build - that in itself can be a challenge and it can be fun. but it doesn't need to look like a 'low budget' build if you just spend the time.

even in pics I can see runs or brush marks or whatever in the engine bay - rad support to be specific. do they not have sand paper in florida?

ok the whole fender thing... so it isn't my style, but it doesn't need to be; that's all good. but it CAN be well done. It will take a tremendous amount of time to do the necessary sheetmetal work to correct all the geometry issues. the door gaps look horrible. that's the first and biggest issue. you lost metal by angling it. you need to make up the metal and correct the door gap. now it's way too late. if you had asked, we could have guided you to how to do it right and leave all the correct gaps as they should be. But now you've bent the crap out of it. I hope those were aftermarket stampings and not OEM that you cut up. If I was doing that, I would have left everything bolted up and cut out a complete section of what I wanted to angle. Then I would have made the angled parts separately, then added flanges to the angled part and panel bonded it back to the original fender to avoid warping the fender from excessive welding. Then some light filler work, and it's done. Or, what you can do now is sculpt the shape in bondo how you want it, then make molds out of those fenders (no longer fenders, but plugs now) to produce your own fiberglass or carbon fiber fender from scratch.

Car is starting to look pretty good! Great example that it doesnt take a million bucks to get some legit kanjo vibes going.

Coolios! Glad you understand what I mean; most of us don't learn till we get blasted a little

I've built a few cars, and one thing I learned is patience. Some stuff just drags on and on and on... but then when all the tedious work is done, all of a sudden it comes together and it's glorious! When I was restoring the underside of my EJ8, each wheel well took a week to do. And that's for something no one is ever going to see. It isn't a show car, but I wanted it to be stunning to ME. After all, it IS a hobby so it should bring you joy and should never feel like 'work'. So you should never be doing it if you feel lazy.

H22 should be good fun. Probably a pain in the butt to put in, but the torque should feel plentiful. As for how... I haven't a clue. I've gone turbo Ds the whole time or B series in EGs on occasion which is a bolt in affair. Hopefully someone else can help out with that aspect.

New fender effort is looking better as well. There are panel bond products out there that may be better value than JB weld and will be more flexible. I worry that JB weld might crack over time as the sheetmetal flexes.
