    Exclamation 92 SC timeline

    so exactly One Year Ago i bought a Supercoupe From Copart
    this is what i got originally

    it has been a year and ive been modding it here and there
    Not the best thing ever has lots of imperfections and some may have bad opinions about it but with all that said i want to share and see what everyone thinks and what ideas they have to improve the car not just in looks but as well as in performance
    thank you guys

    A few more after it was painted

    the engine bay looked TOO SLOPPY i know
    there was plenty of over spray there was still parts that were
    RED
    i wanted to keep the original color but at the time i ran out of money
    and i already had Black paint and some Blue
    that were for another car
    so i painted it Black with Blue Pearl
    and blue interiors

    the engine bay is changing as of now
    getting rid of all the Blue mostly
    and trying to clean up lots of the over spray

    ...

    I got a ceramic coat on the blower
    did some superficial polishing to the tubes
    still working to finish those
    and just to clearify the Hood scoop
    so that many dont think its just a stick on scoop
    well partially it is a stick on scoop
    but i gutted out the hood made a hole so that it would be functional
    either to get hot air from the engine bay out or ram some fresh air in

    Engine looked so blue i started to feel like a ricer -.-

    Hello, and welcome! You did a nice job fixing up the car. I like the exterior a lot. The interior is not my taste, but it seems to be well done.

    Enjoy the car, and the website!

    Thanks alot i sure will many good people here that offer help when it comes to fixing up this cars
    and yea the interior was something i had to improvise in since many of the parts were broken or in really bad conditions so i had to fix with fiberglass and paint them so it couldnt be noticeable
    back then i didnt know i could find interior parts here from other members xD
    the front seats i dont like the covers but the holsters are in quite a bad condition as well

    I see. Considering what you had to work with, I think it's a definite improvement.

    There are some nice fitted seat covers available at www.supercoupeperformance.com. They are not cheap, but, well, they're not the simplest things to make either.

    Thank you
    YES! i had seen those but i figured that kind of money could be used on
    85mm TB etc
    maybe an MPX case or plenum
    once im done on the modding which is hard to believe i will with one mod comes another
    i think i will buy new upholstery
    thanks for the link tho

    and yes the car came in horrible conditions when i got it -.-
    and aside from that it wouldnt even start lol
    then the transmission went out after a month of running
    then a week after the transmission was fully rebuilt the head gaskets when pop
    and then i found out the snout was leaking oil as well
    hopefully i dont have to worry about this things for a while now...

    but its a match port to the Gaskets
    but i say a little bit better than no port at all

    Migueal,

    SO many people here would have just said screw it and parted that car out. Its real nice to see someone put effort into fixing the car up and saving yet another from the junk pile. It's all about your own personal taste and what you can afford to produce. Looking forward to seeing what your up to next.

    Thank you so much
    the paint has some minor details since im not a professional at it or have an actual shop with a paint room
    but unless you work a body shop u wont know :P
    i also realized BLACK is a very annoying color when it comes to bringing details out
    so maybe red would have looked better but didnt have the money for the paint at the time :P
    thanks

    I know even I at first did not like it one bit
    i had a mustang body in my back yard and i was thinking to rebuild it all it needed was paint and an engine
    so thats what i was going to do but my godfather made the purchase on this supercoupe for me
    and at first im gonna be honest i was dissapointed when i saw it
    and it didnt even turn on had lots of things wrong with it

    got it to start and went pedal to the metal to see if it was even worth it
    after i heard the Whine and did some do- nuts i
    was convinced i was gonna keep it
    it was a really comfortable ride
    Currently im looking to fix the headlights
    trying to see if i can get some clear headlights or maybe find a conversion of headlights idk just want this old blurry ones gone
    and its getting put back together
    i have so much to do to it i lose track of whats next
    everynow and then
    but im hoping to turn this Ex-Junk into a 12s survivor less than 12 even better

    thanks to everyone for all the good tips on what to do and what not to
    even tho parts are quite scarce and the mods for this cars are not as wide variety as u see in a mustang
    and a bit expensive i like it its quite a challenge and soon they will be classics even tho mine isnt original anymore :/

    Thank you very much
    yes sometimes i feel a little ricey with the blue :P but i couldnt just fix one part and make leave the other stock looking so i figured i had to do it all
    mostly i did with the sloppy engine bay but thats long gone
    so now it will just be the interiors once i get money that i dont spend on performance i want to get new upholstery so i can get rid of the Seat covers

    the stick on hood scoop
    was useless untill last week
    i gutted the heavy cowl hood so now at least i can say its a heat extractor or a wanna be ram air

    If you are tight on money, you can sand down the headlights to get rid of all the yellowing, and then clear-coat them. (Grind the little nubs off before you do this, it will save you lots of aggravation.) The yellowed glue along the outside can be removed as well. Soak the headlights in some hot water to get them a little more pliable, then gently split the housings at the seam with a putty knife or some such thing. Then seal the housings back up with clear RTV or something along those lines.
    God bless!!!
