Alright I started a build thread over on 4g61t.org (colt forums)
Some stuff I will copy over
My original plans for this car were to keep it fun... and then the competitive side in me came out and i went full Race Car. Its basically setup for drag racing... just because the cars going to be a great sleeper (besides the gigantic intercooler<will be painting black> and side exit) :p
Care is a 1992 base model decently clean for being a 1992 beater
I want to get the car to 2000 lbs if i can.
Car is completely stripped
No ac/heater

Cleaning the wheel wells sucked... i made the mistake of trying to use a wire brush.. worked but super slow.
The next day I came back for round 2 with a wire wheel and a high speed drill.
