    Yeah, i think the OG wheels would look better under the wagon too. I want kind of an old school look with it. No flashy bodykits, a good built engine, JDM rear wing (preferable factory, but after market is ok as long as it's not TOO outlandish)and mild interior parts. Oh, and that killer slotted hood Dennis showed me. Think you can find the hood again bro?

    Looks like I'll have to get 2 set of wheels, plus whatever comes on the wagon. Gotta have a set for winter ya know? lol

    These are looking good on the Honda

    Going to take a closer look at an 84 Chevy K10 after a while. It's a little rough (the way i want it) but has aftermarket rims. While not a bad thing, they're not the style I'd want. Plus they're chrome. The wheels on my old truck were machined alloys. I miss my 82 K20 with a four speed granny every day. I'd love to find one again, but that'll take some looking. I might get lucky one day, but for now, I'll take the 84.


    This is my 82 Chevy. I miss this truck so bad. Sadly, I never took any other pictures, but i did have a rearview mirror with fuzzy dice, and i replaced those dinky foglights for bigger ones. I really loved the sound of the straight pipes. No cats, just glasspacks. K&N round air filter on top of the QuadraJet 400. I replaced the steering wheel for a Grant one from Autozone. I had so much planned for it, but it ended up getting repossessed. Gas was $4 a gallon, times were tough, but the truck was fun.

    Yeah, they are. Great potential. Mine needed a new seat as the springs on the drivers side were worn out. I had to sit on a pillow which came with the truck. lol. It also had one rust spot that i can remember in front of the drivers side tail lamp, which i had to replace because it was broken and i got pulled over one night.

    But, on another note, just so i have something to do i decided to spray paint some interior pieces in the Eclipse. The tweeter housing, the radio trim and a speaker grille is what I'm planning. I have pics, but they're on my wife's digital camera so I'll upload them later. I'm painting them blue, to kind of go with a blue and black theme. I think i may have shared this photo, if you havent seen it, here it is, but this is probably the best way i can describe my idea. i want to paint the black part (can't really see much i know) blue, and select trim pieces of trim around the cabin, with possibly some splashes of silver. I don't really want to remove all the silver trim accents, but i will if i have to. I think I'll get some trim pieces from a salvage yard and paint those and see which looks better, the trim with the silver accents AND the blue, or just the straight blue and black. Keep in mind, the better part of the dash and panels will be black. I MIGHT change my mind later when i have the car resprayed.

    ok, in that photo you can't really see any black, so I'll upload some pics tomorrow. I'm using blue caliper paint. Granted it's a high temperature paint, but i'm doing this more to see how it will look. If you guys have any pointers please share. I'm not used to painting. lol

    I have no advice on painting cause I have not really tried too much. I did spray some of my interior pieces black that were painted with some sparkle blue paint when i bought the car and now the paint is sort of chipping cause I just laid down some black flat paint and I didn't sand the old paint off or put any coats on over the black. So I don't have any real good experience with paint.

    Just do a light sanding with a high grit paper so you don't damage the plastic. Smooth it all out and do about two or three coats and you should be good. Just make sure it's not curing in a cold area so you don't have to worry about wrinkles and chipping.

    High grit? Like higher than 350? It'll need to cure in the house, but I'm not painting it inside. Sarah's pregnant.

    Well, i knew i'd do it if i looked hard enough on eBay. I found me a pair of 1985 Chevy K5 blazers that had been retired from the military. I want one of those (or the pickup CUCV) SOOO bad. Dare i say they were better than my old truck. 6,2L diesel engine, roughly 22 mpg's, heavy duty chassis (1 1/4 ton) tried and true off road capabilities, but smooth enough for daily driving, no radio (can install one easily) turn key ignition (I'd swap that for a key) and a military trailer hitch. the damn things can tow a dually pickup. Very reliable vehicles. there was one for sale about a year ago not too far from my mom and dad's house for $2500. I wish to God i had bought that.

    I'd rather have a retired HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, a.k.a. Humvee) Those things COMMAND respect.

    Alrighty guys, I'm back with another update, though it's nowhere near as cool as Jay's is. Lucky SOB scored a set of cool rims. (no hard feelings bro) Anyways, since i can't get a new engine for the car, i figured might as well FEEL like I'm doing something. So, i've been painting. Enjoy.

    The passenger side tweeter cover (no tweeter to cover though. lol)




    the paint didn't come out as well as i was hoping, so i sanded it down to retry.




    The finished product.


    All mounted.


    Radio trim.




    I decided to keep the silver. I figure it will break up the two colors. trying to keep with touches of black so it doesn't feel overwhelming.

    Two more coats and it's done. note the huge X across the tape. (I was bored. lol)

    The finished product.

    My lovely wife modeling my work.

    And a closer shot of the radio trim.


    Speaker grilles






    the finished radio trim and speaker grilles. I still have one to pull from the car.


    And the door handles.






    and the window switch. I think this came out really good.


    I know you cant tell in the previous pic with the door handles and the window switch, but i put a small piece of tape over the illumination spot for the driver's side window button. Notice it's still white while the lock and window lock switches got painted over. I'm going to do some looking around to find some little stickers to put on those buttons to make it look factory.


    And that's it for now. More to come later. For now, I'll leave you with the fuse box cover.


    And a final shot of the engine bay with the new fuse box cover.

    Just wait til i post the latest pics boys. lol. I do need to order a couple of parts from eBay, or Mitsubishi, whichever is cheaper. The dash pad (i guess that's what you call it) and the steering wheel rear cover (again, i think that's what it's called.) and paint those blue and everything will tie in with the radio trim and still in progress center console. Hope to find a good motor in the near future too. I know a place that's reliable, they test every motor and offer a warranty, but no money to get the motor. Plus we may be getting an extended cab Chevy 4x4 in the near future as well.

    Ok guys, i need some help. I need to find window lock and door lock decals for the Eclipse switches that i painted. I want to give the illusion to it being factory, when anyone can clearly tell it's not. If you find decals, please tell me. thanks.
