Matt's 1990 740 TiC Project thread.
Yeah, here's my whip of t3h aw3s0m3. Cost me $300.

When I got it.

LOL RIC3 P1P3.(It actually sounds pretty nice)

Big ass scuff, should buff out.

Don't mind the centre console, it's pretty horrific, came with the car.



Don't worry, the valve cover has been cleaned up, and will be replaced soon.

This shall be the ultimate in ghetto modification, hooray 14 hour work weeks! Today I did my first tB mod, ziptied on a few vacuum lines.

Oh, here's the nose right now.

Is that a venomous snake 'bout ready to attack your exhaust tip? I kinda' dig the body color. Freaking headliners....

Sorry, but can someone move this to the projects subforum? Thanks.

Yeah, I forgot about this thread, so, here's the latest update. (Cross-post from the other thread.)
I've also bought another valve cover, eventually going to paint it up like the one in my sig. Switched oil caps between the two, stopped the leak.

Oh, and it's finally got a name. "Le Monstre."

any more updates?

Matt 11-28-2008 03:10 PM

Diff went bang, got replaced for the healthy sum of $986, lol.

I've got four foglamps sitting next to me, to be mounted probably soon, maybe. Also a european plate, but that's in need of a mounting bracket. Sidepipe maybe in December.

Why did you spend that much? Used axle's are like $100.:e-shrug:

Matt 11-28-2008 03:19 PM

Because I had a shop do it. I didn't have the necessary equipment to do it myself.

244tiCanuck 11-28-2008 03:35 PM

Could'a bought a jack, and some jackstands, and otherwise you'd just need wrenches. You could've bought all the tools to swap it for less than a third of what it cost to get it done at a shop.

Matt 11-28-2008 03:36 PM

I didn't pay for it. I had only about $100. My mom paid for it, and I am slowly paying her back for it.

Blackbrick 11-29-2008 12:39 AM

Matt needs to get his hands dirty.... yep....

Matt 11-29-2008 01:18 AM

Yes Greg, yes I do.

OMG, I love how this car is almost the exact same as mine, that I just bought for 200$... 1990.. No headliner.. hydras, turbo... Grey bumpers..

Did you paint them? or back to black them.

Matt 12-03-2008 07:48 PM

Paint, that back to black ish wears off, and just makes them gray, haha.

Blackbrick 12-03-2008 08:31 PM

Needs more Tb stickers.

Matt 12-03-2008 08:34 PM

That it does.

Manbeard 12-04-2008 01:45 AM

Matt 12-13-2008 02:29 AM
