Ok, ok... I take back that whole soapbox soliloquy I posted back there. The Meat Grinder functioned as it should. Carry on, I just went soft for a minute. The kid got me with the squatting and peeing, what can I say?

Later Future Drifter.

I'd crowdsource a John Deer Blitz Black Maaco paint job. Hell, i'd even care enough at that point that i might even do some bodywork and prep myself.

Or maybe an eggplant theme would go well with my new motor:






Or my super awesome heat shield?

It's like, things get so bad that eventually it goes full circle and gets good again, right?

If the paint on my hard top was in as bad of shape as the paint on my car, I'd get it green and paint the car purple. But it's newly painted (just before I bought it) so I'll probably be boring and stick with red.

That's pretty much how this car works in general. I just let it deteriorate to the point that it's about to kill me, then i rebuild it ground up for a dollar, it gets better, does respectable things, then i let it go again.

Unfortunately this time, i realized i had probably been driving it with a blown headgasket and a turbo that had been mixing oil and coolant for a few years.

And now my bottom end is rather ermmm.... damaged.

So naturally, i just threw a built head at it, didn't touch the bottom end, and we're off to the races to see what it'll do.

This entire thread was a car wreck. (pun intended)

I'm glad I came back. I have reevaluated my previous thread rating and have now upgraded it to 6 of 10. Would read again. Also would donate to eggplant paint. But I only have .35 and some pocket lint. We are close to being able to afford a can of rustolium.
