Thanks guys! Steve, this is just how I am man. I just can't bring myself to throw something together, I've tried :lol: . Honestly if I didn't do it this way I really would lose interest.

Oh yeah, and the selling cars will never change. I mean I'll be 40 in November and I'm positive I've had at least 50 cars. That's probably a low estimate too.
damn alot more cars than me and im 54 lol.. my van i am rebuilding the whole susp.. all bushings and parts.. even cleaned engine bay from axle leaks but still not close to yours.. and I dont have any spare tooth brushes to get in the corners LMAO...

This poor car has been through more wheels. I don't even have those anymore. Got tired of them sitting in the corner of our dining room and really didn't have anywhere else to put them so I listed them on CL. Traded off the Diamante wheels a few weeks ago for a sunroof setup too. I figure when I actually need wheels something will pop up.

Steve, while I do scrub parts in my parts washer with toothbrushes and an assortment of others for engine bays I just use the purple degreaser. Let it soak for 10-15 min and then follow up with a pressure washer. For stubborn spots it might take a 2nd or 3rd round. But they come out spotless eventually with no scrubbing necessary.

That works too, it's a lot stronger. Not sure if you guys have the Roses chain stores there. They have it for $3.50 a gallon around here. Pretty sure its diluted more, hence the cheaper price. But yeah, that stuff. If you're in direct sunlight you have to keep reapplying so it works best in the shade, it'll dry in the sun. This is how I clean most parts that are super dirty. Wear old clothes and expect to get wet in the process though.

Thank you! Honestly I try to up the game a little with every build. But I'm sure everyone wants their next build to be better than the last as their skill level increases.

It's something I've done since I've been driving. Even more since I started working on my own stuff. I pick cars up cheap, fix them up a little, try to turn a profit and move onto something else. I always sell one before moving onto another so most of the time the same money is just rolled over meilleure mutuelle TNS. If I were rich I probably wouldn't be buying older $500 Mitsubishis :lol:
When I see this car, it reminds me immediately of the time when I and my father went shopping. The good times !
