It finally cleared up enough today for me to uncover the car and get it running. Took a couple laps around the block, and took some nice new pics, concentrating on the engine bay:

The interior was actually in better shape than the exterior when I got it. But it needs carpet in the front... Ill finish up the interior last, after the engine and paint.

Its called "bumper paint", ive used it on a few things before like wipers on my Impreza and my old grill. I usually sand the surface first then do like 3 or 4 layers. It holds up ok, but it wont last forever, probably a couple years. The cool thing is its not hard to just spray another coat or two on when it needs it.

It might work better if you spray some kind of paint adhesive surface first before spraying the actual paint on, but I havent tried that yet.

:slobber: :eek: :slobber: :eek: <----- Thats what I looked like when I saw that thing. AWESOME. It really looks good! Keep it up, there's a ton of detail in there. I'm gonna start working on a 79 Brat and I want it to look like your wagon when I'm done with it.

No lift, I think the tires measured out to only an inch or something bigger than stock. I could be wrong, but I remember seeing another post somewhere back.

No rubbing, not even close.

What wheels are you using? The offset on the pugs is helping alot with the clearance, and the fenders are sooooo far away from the tires that its not an issue :P
