Am I the only one that just found out that that car is way better than I thought ? Lol.

With that hatch rust might be best to just swap out to another one. There's a bunch of work needed in that thing.

Preciate it. Was slacking last weekend and did'nt take pics of before/after rear brakes. Next set of rear tires will be 245/45/17. Those are 245/40's and i cant stand the height diff. between front and rear fenders. Hopefully that works, or i'll have to change wheels to black Cobra r's for the time being.

edit: i checked the spark plug on my known "bad" cylinder. and was carbon'ed up pretty bad. So i broke the carbon off and cleaned it up, and the misfire went away i think. Really makes me think its a valve seal/seat/guide related issue and not a piston ring. B/c if a ring was bad, or compression was low b/c of bad ring and causing the misfire cleaning the plug would'nt give me my power back.

Nice looking fox. I agree on the hatch..... just look for another one! Other than that, looks like you have a nice project!
I like the garage floor too. Gray peeling paint looks just Iike mine. :)

Get a spark plug non fouler. They sell them in the help section of most parts stores. It'll help keep oil off the plug. If those are 10 inch wide tires should be between 275 and 295.

This should help you get the tire size where you want.

preciate ya. lol, ya rdub. The floor paint is around 15 years old. Seeing that i need to buy the rear window molding anyways, it def. makes sense to just get a hatch. Maybe ill get that paint code and just paint it myself when i do that.

I'll check that out for sure sickfox. Just googled it- good looking out! I'll try it out. Did'nt know there was such a thing. Yes, they are 10in wheels in the back, but i did'nt want 275's b/c i was trying to slide easier, and less expense.. The width don't bother me as far as the "stretch" on the rim goes. Its just the tire height compared to front.

The slight miss went away completely after cleaning that plug. Ran good tonight.

That sound deadening stuff is a PITA. Dry ice works the best that I've seen. When it's cold it'll crack off in chunks.

*was a PITA till it met torch.
Not a bad idea w/ dry ice, but Propane torch is where it's at. Did otherside for about a minute. Peeled it like butter. It was a thing of beauty. Lol.

Picked up the spark plug non fouler from autozone and put it on the bad cylinder as well. As the misfire started to come back today. Back to good, so will see if it works now. Looks like it should.

Look at this welding job i did. Lmao. Some are ok, some terrible. It's a lot stiffer though and reduced body roll no doubt.

There is big gaps between frame and SFC in a few of the weld spots i didnt bother with. The gaps dont show up on those pics. But its like 1/8inch. And just could'nt get good beads on the other parts for some reason. I did some practice beads on a piece in a vice and got it satisfactory. But went to weld on the frame and SFC and the welder was just popping a lot. Not sure why. Also very close to gas line there on passenger side so only did inside of that SFC.

Was just screwing around on that torque box. Prolly go back and weld that up next wknd.
