I haven't updated this in a while, here's progress!

All the way down to the block.  Next stop - Hot tank, hone, and machine work.


Pictures of cylinders.  Not that bad.  Will need honed.








Perspective from the bottom end








Crank is in very good shape.






This had me going "huh.." as it has some oddball wear.  Doesn't look rotational since it goes back and forth diagonally, perhaps factory? Odd.






Yep.  Ick.






Another of the odd wear.


I think the pistons could be cleaned up and reused but I think I may wanna just get new ones since I'm already getting new rods.

Today I got the block hot-tanked.  Got it back home, went after it with grinders, wire wheels, sandbits, you name it.  Wiped it down in lacquer thinner to get all the impurities out and painted it.  Still just doing one side at a time, but I finally decided my color combination I want for the car, I'm painting the engine to match :)

Here's what I started with.


Hot tank


More prep


And more prep


I didn't get any pictures of the total prep, was too excited.  But here's one side finished.






Lots of wire wheeling, grinding, more grinding, more wire wheeling, and even pulled out the hand grinder.  So mix of dremel, hand sanding and a grinder.  Lots of lacquer thinner to get the rusty dust off and that's the end result.

Gonna go finish the rest here in a bit but am way tired, long day.

Here is today's post of the interior stripping.  I have not shared a lot of these photos since I wanted to post them when I was close to done since it's pointless to go "HEY LOOK! RUST AND GROUND DOWN METAL!"

Since I like before and after photos.









Yay, so much fun.


Chisels, screwdrivers, hammer and armstrong.







These last 3 are the most recent.





As you can see if you look close, driver side still needs a bit more.  And it's dirty as hell in there so it's easy to see all the dusty crud flying around thanks to me grinding in the car.  But you get the idea.

As of today there is no more carpet/material/lining/foam/trim in the car.  It's all gone now.  I have dremeled/sanded/grinded/wheeled away almost all the cancer on the inside at this point and am sealing it.

It got crappy as hell outside so i parked it for today.  But I took the rear quarters out and traced them so I can finish my lexan windows and took the pillars out so I can finally put to use the CF I bought.  Going to probably buy some flat media CF so I can use it for the dash and gauges and then strip out the rest of the dash.

Well guys I got some CF parts made and finally got some more shit done on the 924.  The dash is officially gone, and the CF dash will be going in it's place here very very soon.  I made a pillar so I can get some gauges moved since the other side of the dash will be non-existent.  Should be fun times.  

The dash still needs to be trimmed, sanded and cleared and is straight rough out of the mold, but you get the idea.



And here is the pillar

I like.  Yes.





Still need to trim off a bit more, cut out the switch holes and finally sand and clear... but it's finally taking shape.

Lookin good. Motor is cleaning up well. Cross hatches are still there in the cylinder bore. Just needs to honed now. Everything is coming together very very nicely.

Get it fired up and let me know how it works. I wouldn't mind having this as well one day.
