so i have been talking about it alot lately.....and finally i have it.....i have my new b13 se-r fully bolted.

the lighting makes it look pink, but this is a prosche red (macco) job.



greddy cat back with an RS*R tip. sounds GREAT.

the engine is pretty dirty, but i just bought a steamer and im going to put some ammonia or simple green in the water. thats a hotshot CAI and hotshot header.

two of four 110% sand blasted (i used aluminum oxide) se-r wheels that will soon be duplicolor graphite wraped in falkin zeix 205/50/15.

i will be cleaning the engine, full detail of the paint (clay bar, wax, polish) i have 2 new rear OEM shocks and i am ordering fronts. i need to fix the power steering, put on a new lower left door hinge, and replace the rear calipers. even with these minor fixes it still out brakes, out accelerates, and out handles my 99 gxe.

i just bought a can of duplicolor trim paint, im gona hit the side mirrors, wiper cowling, wiper arms, door handles, and i have black plastic dye for the mud flaps (which will not be coming off because i think mud flaps are the best thing ever......keeping the car clean :thumbup: ) and im going to paint the valve cover a nice shiny/deep red useing that "anodizing" paint.

the engine is proving to to very hard to clean, it has over spray from the paint job all over it. im going to get some ammonia and put a few cap fulls into my steam cleaner and see if that helps. if not im going all out with the grease lighting. and i also bought about 5 cans of advance auto parts brand sound eliminating under coating that im going to use in all the wheel wells, trunk, and under the rear seat.

:thumbup: That's some hardcore rust right there! If I were you I'd think about setting aside one Saturday afternoon to take that header out as well as the intake.. those thing are rusted like crazy! Get some sand paper and primer and the color of your choice on them!

BTW I love your car, I bet it's gonna look even better after the trim paint job is done. Grats again!

yea, its all mostly surface rust. i am going to paint the CAI with a wrinkle finish like tim did. as for the header idk if any paint will last in that exact area because it gets so hot, and i dont want to smell burnt paint every time i drive.

i used a "scat cat" sand blasting box and aluminum oxide. the box took forever but got the job done on one. these are my neighbors tools, he noticed how long it was taking and he took them to work where he has a sand blaster that could be used as an assult rifle. heres the break down
1. nut shells <for taking off paint on plastic or very light paint.
2. glass < for light surface rust
3. sand <for heavier paint/resurfacing
4. aluminum oxide......like useing gravle! the stuff is amazing, its so course it took all the curb rash off my rim! but test it on the rear first to make sure your ok with the finish it leaves, its close to useing 150 grit sand paper. honestly, this stuff it crazy, it poked a hole in my finger threw the felt glove. :waving:
