Default 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.


NO HEADLINER FABRIQUE LOL.


Krome.


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.

Yeah, I forgot about this thread, so, here's the latest update. (Cross-post from the other thread.)
http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=140243
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."

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.

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

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.

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.
