    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    I wrapped up all the organizing. I'm a little frustrated with how many different bolts are on this thing. I had to combine a Lot of similar bolts just for the sake of not having 7 of these trays. Out of all of those bolts I have (1) grade 10 bolt for example. Crazy. I have another batch going...

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    So I started organizing on my couch lastnight. Untitled by Brady Dingeldein, on Flickr I took pics of a ton of the bolt sets for various parts, but I also just started throwing every bolt I could find in the bucket, so there are a lot that are not really "to" anything. I'm just going to...

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    Oh yeah. I'm so excited to assemble everything and then put this thing in storage and never drive it LOL. But yes, I'll be honest I wish they were way more gold/shiny but extremely happy considering this is what all the bolts looked like previously. Couldn't imagine spending all this time and...

    GSX Dude definitely makes and sells all of them for $390 I believe! Side note, the rear bushings are Black, not red haha.

    Solid were cheaper, and the thing already vibrates like a washing machine with a load of bricks haha

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    You're not bombing! All good information to have. You're looking at all the suspension bushings in red FYI. I bought the Torque Solution rear poly subframe bushings and the volk solid front subframe bushings. I only bought the solid because they do not offer poly replacement subframe bushings...

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    That whole bucket of bolts/brackets. Which is basically every single bumper/body part bolt, as well as every bolt under the car, was $80 to blast. And the plating price isn't confirmed yet, but with zinc plating, you can "batch plate" instead of the typical hooking a wire to each part and...

    Yo! Yesterday I pulled the trigger on my body shop deposit and drop-off date! Can't wait. The following is being done: -Underbody/wheel well are getting scraped/grinded/cleaned and then will be seam sealed and U-Pol Raptor lined in black. -Glass is all being removed, windshield is getting...

    Yo! So I've still slowly been buying parts for the refresh/resto and slowly cleaning/disassembling the shell getting it ready for paint. I yanked the OEM long-block and got that sold. I now have duplicates of the full drivetrain. Unsure if I will sell all the duplicates or not.... IMG_1323 by...

    I will be continuing the thread on this one as the shell is the only thing that has changed. Literally everything, glass, wiring, everything, is from my last 99'. I know a guy with a mint 99 Barcelona with 50k miles who found the white one. He is running into some money problems so he sold it...

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    So... I know this will be super disappointing. But my shell will be getting scrapped. The rust was too bad, and would have cost thousands. Not including the hundreds of hours of my time to fix it all. The shell needed new doors, fenders, front/rear bumpers( too spider cracked per the paint...

    I promise I am fully aware of metric bolt sizing and socket sizes haha. Just quickly jotting down the socket used for all the bolts. These notes are only for me. I just took the pictures then threw the paper away.

    Yo! I get married in 1 week so there has not been any progress on the eclipse really. But I did start the parts trips to the powdercoater and ordering more parts.

    Well yeah, never said anything about undercoating the driveshaft. I will wire brush everything I can and probably just do the Eastwood rust inhibitor Platinum then Black over that. I got my first batch back from the blaster! Obviously have to remove a lot of the bushings and some other stuff...

    99 GSX Rebirth/Clean-Up/Build

    Yep, very familiar with the stuff, but I won't be going with it for a couple reason. The Eastwood rust inhibitor (brush on) with a 3M undercoating top coat on the unibody with Eastwood internal frame coating will work amazing for my setup. I had some downtime so I wanted to continue getting...
