Its that time again.. Time to build #2. this build will be faster, cleaner and handle better then my first AWD build.

A little history of my self for the Newbs and or the old guys if they dont remember me. I've owned 3 original turbo cars. 2 AWD colts. 2 swapped colts and a few others along the way.. I've owned over 20 turbo DSM's. 2 mightymaxs. a 76 RWD colt and a ton of other junk..

Bought my 2nd original turbo car in 05/06 and soon AWD swapped it. I believe at the time there was only a handful of completed swaps.. Dans, lil evo, mine and two others i believe.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Sold it after 2 years of pure fun to CSMshaun to buy these

Image
Image

Sold the Cataplt to Nate dog and the 76 to a local and laid low for a while.. got a good deal on these two gems

Image

soon after having those i bought this to strip and AWD swap the sedan

Image

stripped the GSX like a moron and sold the rolling chassis to CSM shaun. then sold everything DSM related i owned, includeing the 4 door that CSM shaun now owns. haha

I got into wheeling, and built a bulletproof toyota

Image

Same truck, just cab swapped and EXO'd this was the week that i sold it

Image

I Had a little girl in June of 2011 and decided it would be best if i sold the toyota since i wouldnt be able to wheel nearly as much as i wanted. Sold it and searched for a clean original turbo colt. Ended up settleing for Natedogs 2.0na project. It was 100% rust free and extremely straight, and i wouldnt feel nearly as bad cutting up a base model.

The week i picked the car up.

Image
Image
Image
Image

I soon moved into my cramped ass garage and began surgery.. stripped the front end off. the interior, the rear axle. blah blah blah..
Image

I've got a room full of good parts awaiting to go on the car.

as of now, the rear end is 90% done and about ready to roll. I have everything tacked in and waiting for a buddy to come double check everything just to make sure its square and whatnot. I have picters of the entire process. I'll be uploading them tomorrow when i get more time.

No no.. I bought it from Craig (gsx on here) I had no part in that build. Which was part of the reason for selling it

You didn't put up any pics of the White Trash Colt.

List of cars I have bought either directly from John (RedSleeper), or cars that John has built and I got ahold of (in order):
White Trash Colt (base model with 2.0l turbo swap)
Black Colt GT AWD/2.0l Swapped
Red GSX pictured above
White Eagle Summit LX Sedan pictured above

I still have the red GSX shell sitting in a garage waiting for an excuse to do something with it. The white Scummit is my current whip/toy.

front end got yanked off, so my fat ass wouldnt put dents in the fenders from leaning. haha
Image

Then cut the rear shit out like everyone does
Image

I wasted a ton of time drilling out spot weld, Just to cut out that entire area
Image

got the rear end jacked up, to see what needed to be trimmed and cut out
Image
Image

Cut and re-welded the rear strut towers so my Ksports were in the proper location
Image

got everything squred up and tacked the rear cross bar in place.. Its 1'' DOM tubing
Image

This is where i get a little differnt, after doing my EXO cage on the toyota, I realized i can do ALOT with tubing that never crossed my mind.. I welded 1/8'' plates in place of the stock seat belts, and welded 1.75 DOM as a cross bar that will eventually be the base of my roll cage in a way. But to also connect with the "crossmember" i made for the front of the rear subframe.
Image
Image

You can see here the "cross member" i made. I put the hump in it because i wasnt in the garage, and thought the driveshaft went up higher. But it doesnt. Now it will act as a driveshaft hoop once everything is done. I plan on making a bottom for it. Btw, that plate thats welded on was just to help me hold it up to start doing all my measureing. Doing this all myself, something are harder then other without extra hands.

Image

There will be 1.75'' Going threw the rear floor board from the cross bar, that will connect to the "crossmember" and then eventually, sooner then later. it will somehow all connect into the rollcage.

You should channel a piece of tubing and weld it across the mustache bar to make it even more sturdy and purdy! 8) That round tube set up kicks ass man.
