Well, where should I begin? I posted my car about a year ago, thread just diedout when the engine blew in my car, so to get back to the action i'm making a new tread and remove the old!

It's a early 1986 model 360 (344) with the B200k engine.

i'll start with pictures from when i first bought the car a year ago, it looked like this, real nice with only 108000km on the clock.
Image


then i god a hold on some parts and i thought; what the hell, i'll make it nice! so i decided to strip the front and prep the bumper and shit for paint, and wrapped the headlights in yellow tint!

Image

Image

The wrap looks like shit up close, i didn't quiet figure it out x)

Image

while i was taking the front apart i realized that something had to be done with that poor looking bumper, but first-
Image
I'm gonna grind off any paintwork on the hood (that took a while, so more on that later)
i decided to paint the fenders black,
Image
Image
Image

Finally done, it took seven hours of grinding!
Image

Now, it's time to mask it of and lay down a clear coat!
Image
Image
Now, i just used saltwater and waited!
Image

(Before i mounted the lights on the rack)
Image

(After i mounted them on the roof rack, and a wash down!)
Image

Image

Image


i'm aiming for something like this, (ditch the roof rack)
Image


The rims are my winter rims, they have studed tires and they are from a old Opel Kadett 1200s that i had last winter (exelente driftmobile) but since my cash-flow is at the low end of the scale at the time being, i can't afford any new once :/ and still, the rear of the car is in serious need of some new bushings! man the car floats like a fecking boat!

Well! it's been a while since last time i did anything with the car. shortly after winter kicked in, here in Norway, my engine blewup on me. so had to get a replacement engine, got myself a B23A, but turned out the crankshaft was bent, so i bought my self another 360 spare car, not much to use, since it was so F**KING rusty :p (the bad kind!!) but startet to strip it and pulled the engine, swaped out the old lump from the original rat project and got i running.

B23A:
Image

The donor car:
Image

How my car looked before the engine gave away.. with new ally cat's witch i bought for myself for christmas! :D
Image
Image

and this is now, with some Exim's that i traded my surround system for:
Image

So, this is the situation right now, is:

I'm making a stand for the B23 to get it running before i put it in, (that'll make it so much more easy!)
when i get some money i'll also get some painting done, and make the rusty hood a little better, since i now realize it looks like crap, although the rust is nice, i don't know what i was thinking when i maked of the text :roflwtf

within a week or so, i'll be doing a update! :D

i know! preaching to the stancelords every single day! :bow
maybe there will be som low after i've had it MOT'd, because there ain't any TÜV marked lowering kits for it, so Dai on the 360 forum is hooking me up with a sweet set of 3" loweringspring, blocks and som stiff dampers from a LandRover Defender 90 lol :insanity

Hey guys! really glad you like it! the bonnet was a bit much, with no specific font it just didn't look good to me, but i have one on it now wich is flat black, and i'm going to make another bonnet wich will be all rusted out with lights welded on top of it!
The rims are Equip Exim mesh 6jx13 ET13 but i'm looking to get a set of MIM 7jx15 et26 on it. but have to blast them and get them powdercoated first. or perhaps i should go with banded steelies? how about 9jx13 ET0?? :D

i'll mut up some pictures for you guys tomorrow! :cheers

Long time no see ey?

well, this is what's up.
I've been kind of stuck since i'm currently on wealthfare and waiting to get into a back injury rehabilitation institute.
So what i have decided is that this car needs a respray, and will be put on the backburner for now. so in the meantime i will need another car.

but here are some pictures of the last couple of months;

with snowtires; 6x13 et13 ally cat and 155/50 tires.
Image

and then summer finally came around here in norway so i tried on some 6x14 ally cat et13 but i didnt like them..
Image

so i decided to go with the 13x6 exim exip et13 and 165/65 for now
Image

i got so sick of them so i got these badboys cheap of a friend, 7x13 ET(WRONG)5 with some crap 205/60's on them..
Image

well, with the 205's gone and on with some, oh hello there,- 175/50's they look mint at the back;
Image

They rubbed like hell on the shockmount so i had to space them out about 10mm or so. also removed the flaps and all the stickers, looks alot better now if you ask me.

anyway, back to the case at hand! the new car? oh that.. wait until tomorrow and i'll be posting it. have a guess what it might be? post it right here! and i'd like some feedback on what kind of mods you'd like to see.

keep your eyes peeled!

most of it's gone for the time beeing, but it's going back on when it's been reesprayed. though, this car is getting put away shortly, and another taking the "daily driver" spot. That car, will be ratted out.

i want to do something different though, not just hazzardtape it, rust the bonnit and be done with it, i wanna go all out balls to the walls :smash

thanks man! sure appreciate it! :)

so, i guess i'll have to share this with you guys. my new car.

I've had it for a while, and it has kind of just gathering dust at my cousins house while i've been gathering parts and making sure it will be a propper daily driver.

so without further ado, say a warming welcome to my little friend;

Image

Image

So that's my brand spanking new, 92 Corsa/Nova N2 1.4S with a mighty 4speed, 4 different tires and the interior is moldy and stinks donkeyballs :smash
I've had it fixd up safety wise, checked it and had it MOT'd no problem. it just needs to be ratted. and this is my thoughts;

I have a coilover kit wich is going to be put on in a couple of weeks, i've got some nice rims wich also will go on, but what do YOU want to see get done? i'll try to take as many pictures as i can and even try to film in the prosess if you guys need some help with how you could do things to your car without the help of "the handyman friend" :D

Normally I'd say that 360 looked very nice and deserved to be kept that way, but in this case, by golly did you do a nice job on it, well done

thank you, nice to hear :) i was supposed to go to a streetmeet today, but it just pissed dinosaur urin all day, so i decided not to go, but i dressed her all up yesterday and took a picture oh her.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The interior, and yes i am rocking a cassette deck ;)
Image

it's all about supporting the community!
Image

The old couple who owned the car before me both worked at a beer brewery for their entire life, this is the parkingsticker they used to get in and out of the factory. in respect to them both who sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago in a car crash, i keep it so i never forget to take care of the old girl.. even if its sort of ratted.

So today was Norways national day, or Norwegian Constitution Day. So i dressed my car up with flags and had some fun around our town, the gradstudents have had since 1st of may until today had an endless party to celebrate they finishing 13 years of school, they all have a parade at the end (all of norwegian schools does this in different cities, this is just a little taste of what's going on;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pifiKuUiPeY

it's a blast!

Image

So this is what she looked like today, even a few people wanted to take a picture with them and the car, for the lols i let them do it, and everyone smiles and laughs when they see it :p

yesterday i visited a friend of mine, he needed some wide arches for his Kadett B rally coupe, and i need some wide rims for my 344, so we decided to trade, he got some 3" universal wide arches and i got 4 genuin 8jx13 ally cat rallye specials with some serious dish.

Image

Image
the "VISA" comparison..

and compared to my 7jx13 ATS, with where the senter of them are. about a good inch difference in offset. pluss, i need 1" spacer adapters to make them fit, the pcd on the 344 is 4x100 and the wheels are 4x108 si it will look really good!

Sorry, I was too busy having a Braingasm at the two Opels. MAJOR stiffy!
What? wheels, yeah! Erm.... I think if it were me I'd end up rolling a dice to decide. Sorry I can't help any more than that.
