Thank you good sir

The body is in real bad shape thats why I've been waiting to do it last, that and because i don't want to paint the exterior and then the interior and engine bay and get over spray on the exterior paint. Id rather have some over spray on the interior and engine bay then the exterior, if you guys can understand what i mean? . I do plan on taping everything up once i start the painting but I'm probably not going to start the body work for a week or so just to get my mind off the car for a while haha.

Its an evo 1-3 JDM manifold. got it from Japan . It says "velocity" on it Not sure if thats the brand or ??

I just realized that i haven't posted pictures of the interior. Here are some pics of the interior, sorry that its dirty lol. fixed all three rust holes in the floor. cut out the rust, welded another piece in then bondoed over it and painted.

then theres my transmission mount, modified the old existing one.. and look how short my transmission is ... that should be fun shifting

Oh i see what you mean and started thinking about that once you mentioned it. I hope it doesn't mess with oiling or oil pressure during acceleration. Ill watch the oil pressure and if it drops during acceleration, ill try to make a custom rear sump and extend the oil pick up tube. And ground clearance is pretty good, i didn't want to put the motor too low for that reason. Its about 2" lower then the cross member. I plan on putting sheet metal under the length of the car and hopefully that protects it enough.

Very nice build! Looking forward to it being done!

BTW, the variable length runners on the manifold work well! A buddy of mine did that on his JMF manifold about 8-10 years ago and it worked great...until the car got stolen.

I haven't posted on this or updated in a while but i've been busy with the body work, a lot more was needed than expected . I think its taking longer then normal because I'm hand blocking the entire car.
i thought of a great idea that was faster then using a guide coat, I got an ebony pencil and write all over the area thats going to be sanded and it shows you all your low spots . i know a guide coat does the same thing but this way is faster because no drying time is needed.

I want to primer the car with weekend but there is still a lot to be done and I don't know if it'll get done by then, time will tell.

Any way here are some pictures of the progress...

Also does anyone have any tips for large areas such as the roof? i have a 14" block sander but that will take forever and i want it to have a nice finish when its done.. is my block sander the best way to go for that area?

im very interested in your build man. I have planned everything for a 4g63 RWD swap and my only problem was the water pipes, your set up looks promising, looking foward on how it works out.

I don't know why mitsubishi didn't make a 4g63 RWD coupe car from the beginning But with more and more 4g63s being swapped into rwd cars come more information . I got most of my ideas from ProjectZeroG.org and just made everything custom because its fairly straight forward . I love seeing RWD 4g63 powered cars and ill have one . I hope to get it under 2500lbs and at least >400 whp, which should make for an extremely fun street car
