Default Day 3007 "Operation Silence 5"

We are over the 3000 day mark. It honestly feels like I painted it 1 year ago and dropped the new motor in 5 years ago. But its been more like 4 and 8. I've had more fun (and hate sometimes) with this car than I ever imagined.
We are finally back to the original color inside. Its not fully assembled yet but I need to make a few electrical connections and such but we are making progress. The goal was to make it a nicer ride and it has done just that. I've put foam in a lot of areas that couldn't be covered but the rubber, including under brackets for the seat mounting, the arms rests in the rear, below the rear speakers, and probably the most important place, inside the shifter boot. I didn't take a photo of that but its filled pretty tight with foam. It doesn't make the shift feel any different but it does remove the trans noise a noticeable amount. The tunnel is double layered for that extra sound blocking. The doors are not done yet and its noticeable that the sound is coming from the doors. I'll be working on that and the console next.





Carpet in

Rear seats in

Seats, seat belts etc in

Default Day 2878 "Operation Console"

The console lid has arrived. It belongs to a 2015 Chevy Equinox. It has the simplest hinge design that I can mount to a hand designed console and it looks comfy too :D.

Default Day 3129

When I bought this set of rims, i decided to just run the old tire that were on them and replace them as needed. the front were first. the driver rear acquired a hole in the side wall and finally the passenger rear managed to find a stick to poke through the very center of the tread. If you look at what was left of the tire you wouldn't be surprised. ordered another tire and now its a full set lol. And no more of those sensor valve stems either. I'm working on getting the interior back together since the Operation Silence. And there is a little more behind the scenes that I'll post about in a little bit. I've been working on this for months which also is why there hasn't been activity on the blog since Sept or so.

Just about used up
New tire. One thing I probably mentioned before is these new tires are somewhat wider than the old ones despite them being the same size. This means there is literally 3/16" clearance on the inside of the tire. The other side had this already but now its both sides. I'm probably going to use some spacers to fix this but until I swap for longer lug studs I'll have to deal and hard cornering is not advised.
