Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

The fuel cell is going in the trunk in the wheel well (I know it's frowned upon but what the hell eh), and thanks! I was playing around with color combinations and liked this quite a bit so I figured I'd give it a shot! So as I have a car show in FOUR days. me and my buddy have been working steady o...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Well, I've been slacking a little bit since my last update due to a getaway trip in Cuba + starting a new job. I fixed my transmission angle problem though with hockey pucks(canadian fix or what?). Worked perfectly. The car has it's last coat of primer, and has been soaking in for the past almost mo...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

If your trans isn't hitting the stock tunnel along the top then you're probably going to have vibration issues at speed due to u-joints being in their unhappy places. The slope of your valve cover doesn't look too bad in that picture, but it's hard to tell with that as a guide. I don't have a pictu...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

big snowstorm hitting tomorrow, so I won't be able to head to the garage to work, but I got my fenders back, and test fitted on (fit perfectly)! My motor is sitting at a weird angle(to me), but it may be normal because the hood clears and everything. I'm using T3 crossmember with a Z mount and mckin...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

I guess it'll be the plan to paint it body color for now then haha! I'm off to live in tents for the next few days for work, so I won't get any progress done, but I managed to pull this off. https://scontent-b-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10931466_10204823819289853_5480032840585450285_n.jp...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

It's been super cold, and I got thrown on the first part of my leadership course so I've been super busy... HOWEVER, I managed to get some work done tonight! I managed to get the doors on(and fitment was mostly good right away. quite surprising lol), flywheel cleaned and ready to go on(just need rig...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

It's quite a breath of fresh air to see paint on it actually haha, so tired of looking at primer. Body's next !! and I was aiming for something a little different. I was actually REALLY hoping to get some mini-flake in it, but that was a failed attempt haha. Some more work done tonight! Put the fire...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

After a few days of prepping, me and my good buddy had a long night tonight. Finally got a coat of paint of engine bay + jambs!!! In person, I cannot get over how beautiful the paint is. https://scontent-a-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/10872806_10204695184114054_8127864840795359276_o.jpg htt...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Engine bay + jambs are almost done, meaning they're just about ready for paint. I only need to drill holes for the throttlecable now, and smear some spot putty on a couple places and resand the engine bay after a new coat of highbuild. Got one of the biggest things left to do to it, started + finish...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

I have a few things to say. I picked up my color! 2008 Corvette 'Atomic Orange'. It looks SO much better in person. (just a bit of it to paint jambs + engine bay though) https://scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10671488_10204537580294057_7517582139388961461_n.jpg?oh=84f6b9df28e43ac2ad56...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Well, I've gotten some progress done in the past little bit! Both quarter panels are fixed, and sprayed with some high-build, rocker panels have been filled with metal for where the trim would go, and the antenna has been shaved. The motor + tranny have been removed, and are going to be cleaned up w...

I've had about 3 people since I bought mine saying they have some for sale). Now to see i...
