I finished sanding and buffing tonight. Started out 1000 grit then 1500 grit by hand. Then finished sanding with the 3M Trizact system 1500grit DA then their Trizact 3000 grit foam.
Then I use the Presta ultra cutting cream and their ultra 1500 compound and finally their swirl remover and a foam pad. I should have some pics tomorrow. I ran out of time tonight.
Now I can re-install the front bumper, mirrors, door handles, head lights and tail lights etc. So this weekend it should be back on the road. So if the weather holds I will take it on a 1000+ mile road trip.
I also did some re-adjusting on the camber, and toe in on both front and rear. It should help a little as now the car can be push with one finger effortlessly.
Its really close to being finished. I kinda took it easy this weekend and didn't get as much done as I wanted.
I did have one setback yesterday and accidently put a convex dent in the passenger side door. I was installing the window side glass belt molding and got the two retaining screws in the wrong holes and almost put a screw all the way through the door. So I spent a half a day repairing my screw up.
So all that's left now is the inner door panels,glove box door, and install all my electronics for data logging and read out.
Well heres my first post but with a few up dates. (I can't do a edit on the first post)
Red text is mods that won't be done.
"1995 smooth front bumper without fog lights" I couldn't find a newer style bumper in time so I went with a 93'
"Custom Built rear window step" I decided this was not worth the time and effort since the new engine isn't producing the results I wanted being N/A.
Blue text is what still needs to be done.
My New N/A Del Sol Project
I started out with a D16Z6 turbo engine that is built to handle 600whp and still get great FE. This engine is now in my Son's Honda Civic. I'm still working on it but I decided to try to build an engine for the Del Sol that could easily be duplicated. So that brings me to my 3rd engine setup.
