    On Sunday my girlfriend and I started on our most recent DSM build.

    A little history.......


    We picked up a 91 GSX for 100 dollars from a local here in Denver (who I wish would come get his wheels before I scrap them).

    The drivetrain was removed from the car along with the dash and seats.

    We decided the red was in dire need of a repaint. We had some black left over from our CTS-V we just repaired and used that paint.

    We stripped the entire car, prepped it and have been painting it slowly. I have to be careful becuase landlord will slit our throats if she finds out.

    We needed a drivetrain for the car and finally found one. I picked up a 91 Talon Tsi for 500 bucks that was wrecked.




    this is what we started with give or take a little

    Anyways this is what we have accomplished in the last three days:

    Let me know what you think.

    We would like to have the car back on the road in a few more days and we are getting close.

    +4 on the DSM save. I'm picking up a 91 talon with a blown motor next week for $300 and if in half decent shape doing the same. At the least I will be stripping it and saving what I can. As for my g.f. helping, can't see it but never know. So it'll probably be a male build/salvage. Good luck.
