    Wow, so you bought a used set of enkei's with tires on the cheap and got a mirage thrown in free?

    Win.

    Do the gunmetal one up nasty. Stupid boost, crazy HP.

    Then convert the white one into a super efficient hypermiller.

    Name them yin and yang.

    today we pulled it in to get started on the muffler. found a rot hole in the subframe, but nothing major. going to hit it with a wire brush, some etch and rubber undercoat. the endpipe broke right before the rear control arm. going to get a coupler tomorrow to re-join the two sections together, then going to mount the flowmaster on it. should be VERY quiet... this time.

    pulled all the wiring for the sunpro tach it had on the dash. going to install the EVO cluster with this MPH gauge so i can have a real tach.

    underneath the rest of the car is decent. there is no rust inside the trunk, so woohoo!

    battery was dead again. i think the "alarm" is draining the battery, or the chintzy wiring behind the radio. have to rip the alarm out anyways since the remotes are missing. this thing also has OEM lugs and wheel locks. i'm having trouble getting the locks off i cant even get them with an impact gun. oops!

    got some stuffs done over the weekend.


    cleaned up all the excess wiring in the engine bay, replaced the valve cover AND gasket. no more busted ass clips. modified the intake elbow so it isnt rubbing on the brake master cylinder.

    Nothing major?? That looks friggin horrible. You'll need to weld in new metal there or something, don't just slap some rubberized coating on it and call it a day.

    yeah you see its not a honda. the chassis parts are reinforced from the factory. its not a thin piece of sheet metal there. the suspension cup is solid. you cant break away any more of the metal there easily at all.

    Look at the size of that hole! Youre going to have to repaint her off-white and stop calling her a virgin.

    so my mirage has a tramp stamp from the previous owner. its a mermaid with big tits and stars over her nipples. the vinyl is permanently grafted to the trunk of the car. we're going to get some colored sharpies and color it in ;)

    also, i piped the flowmaster 44 onto the back of the car. you cannot hear it at all.

    How is the vinyl permanently grafted? They clear coat over it or something?

    Also, a big hole and a tramp stamp means she isn't by any means a virgin. She is playing you, man.
