Re: Official L-Body Thread!

unfortunately, the most recent pics of my 86 SC:




my paint guy has been working at a snails pace for the past 8 months on it, needed a few rotted areas replaced with new metal, as you can see in the pics.
car was originally black/silver, but im having it done with blue stripes and ground fx to replace all the silver.

...and my daily L-body,



enjoy!

Re: Official L-Body Thread!

Crappy pics but some updated shots of my GLHT as it comes back together:






fitment of the shortened bumpers and my badge-less grill (Frankensteined from 2 horizon ones i had laying around):


It's a pretty tight fit but it manages not to rub. :)

Thanks! :)

The wheels are VR6 VW Corrado Steelies that I had widened to 7" (+15 offset front) and 7.5"( 0 offset rear). I know, I know, why stagger wheels on a fwd car? I like the look!

Tires are 205/45/15 Toyo Proxies all around. The tiny bit of stretch on the .5" wider wheel in the rear is unnoticable, but helps it to not scub, which took a lot of dialing in, runnin such a tight fit.

This spring when the weather thaws, I gotta attack the interior. Have a cage and some interesting plans, then it'll be complete... till i break something. I'll do a more legit photo shoot soon.

Re: Official L-Body Thread!

Very-VERY nice Dart165!! Someday SOON, mine will look very similar...
GLHS#0896 when I bought it(pretty much "stock other then a few mods)....


As it sits now(torn limb from limb)...

Been looking into the "Direct Fire" ignition systems available.
Also looking at "Megasquirt", "Snow performance", and a list of other goodies for GLHS#0896. Lots of "plans"(intentions actually(lol)

I'll keep it posted.
At some point I'll start a Build Log for her.
