Unless Vlad, you want to ship it via Greyhound for me!
How 'bout in September? Tee hee... I know it's a long wait though.

I literally laughed out loud at the llama or whatever that thing was. awesome.

This is how you ship wheels and tires without damage and how I wish, when I bought used wheels, they would ship them to me.

Wrap wheels/tires in saran wrap then use packing foam on the rear lip and front face. Then use 2 pieces of cardboard on each side cut out to the size of the tire and tape it down several times. Then plastic wrap to your heart content and apply tape to all the seams/corners. Never once had an issue with damage.

Wheel/tire wrapping the Jeff way!

What's the story on those? Did you get new wheels?

I'm thinking of coining a new term . . . "Jeffo." As in "Ghetto" as off-the-scale bad quality, "Jeffo" as off-the-scale good quality, with a large continuum between. I'd like to think I usually fall in the "Jeffo" half, but I'm not sure. LOL.

As long as we change the Jeffo part! That was a nickname growing up that made me want to destroy something beautiful.

I believe you have redeemed yourself to fall into the latter!

They were the 18" wheels on my Jetta but I got tired of the ride quality so I put my 16's back on and figured I'd try to sell them.

I was going to say the rest of the weekend free to wrench, but I think it will be mostly rolling and gluing the sound deadening in the cabin. Also finishing the undercoating, fame rails, and hard lines

I am wrecked from work this week so not a ton done tonight.

Cleaned the alternator as far as I really wanted to take it. I could do more but I got all the loose crap off of it at least.







Also put the final coats of underspray on the car. It looks sooooo good in person. That stuff is nasty though. I've left both garage doors open all night and it still feels iffy without my charcoal filter mask on.





Just "plinking" your finger against the metal gives you a much duller sound reflection than the truck bed liner did.

Hawt damn ... what brand is it?

I've been using SEM rustshield but it takes quite a while to dry on the OEM undercoating and is a bit too shiny for my tastes (even though I bought the matte).

3M rubberized undercoating professional grade. Dries in less than 30 minutes and cures in about 12 hours.

I didn't get much done. I think I got sick from an employee that had bronchitis...anyways I feel like dying so I just sat on the couch most of the time wishing my joints and throat didn't feel on fire.

FM Frame Rails are in.



Sound deadening beginning. This stuff is a PITA to work with. Very sticky, doesn't want to lay flat, and you are in an awkward position so your body keeps seizing up.

Bronchitis is just an inflammation of your bronchi. You can't really give someone else bronchitis, however, you could give them the cold/flu virus that caused it...

Medically speaking you are spot on!

Received a "care package". Bought some old side view mirrors off a guy on here for the hardware and trim rings.

Carefully removed the trim rings with my knife to take the glass off. The springs and nuts on the inside are still shiny gold anodized and not rusted hunks of metal that were mine.

If anyone wants the plastic housings just pay for shipping and they are yours.

Sorry, I'm doing OK, just taking it easy. This cold/flu really knocked me on my ***.

Ok here is the progress over the past 5 days, not much but it has all I have had time and really able to do.

Soaked the diff spacer mount in metal rescue, stuff is awesome, no labor involved and it just removes rust with ease. Looks brand new except for the paint.





Painted it up





First layer of sound deadening done. Barely had enough for the entire cabin. Will probably need to buy some more if I'm going to do the trunk area. Any cracks in the matting I sealed with aluminum tape. Any holes I've covered up I'll cut out when I start bolting things in.









Next layer will be closed cell foam followed by barium loaded vinyl barrier after. I didn't buy enough of both to do the entire car so I will only do the firewall/transmission tunnel/seating area.

I thought this was a track car?

Sound deadening looks good. Most frustrating part will be getting things bolted back down that used to rest against the metal...cutting out the deadener will be the frustrating part-it sticks pretty well.
