In the mean time - engine failed the leak-down test. So new head gasket?

Leak-down or compression?

If it was a leak down test it's ring related.

Pictures don't do the color and paintjob justice...

It is the BMW Corp. Mini Cooper British Racing II Metallic code B22 with golden flakes mixed in the color and golden flakes mixed in the second coat of clear. Has a total of 3 coats of clear.

Next steps are to re-assemble and polish to a mirror finish.

Re: My set-up: 2g AWD, 2.3 stroker, evoIII, A/T

Everybody's been busy....

New front axles:



Couldn't find rear axles, sad to say

Oh...and yeah - its put back together...looks awesome even being as dirty as it was today...







Above is what the color looks like in the sunlight. This is in the shade with daylight. Under artificial lightning looks different again...never stops to amaze.

Just wondering, did you remove the glass yourself? I'm looking to do a roof swap on my evo and kind of want to remove the glass myself. Love the color by the way.

Re: My set-up: 2g AWD, 2.3 stroker, evoIII, A/T

My question is also about the Glass,
The rear quarters...Did you bust them out and get new ones? Or was there some way to remove and reuse them?


The color is awesome BTW.

They - the paint shop - got them out and reused them. Again...since I did not do it myself, I would be unable to explain how it was done.

Re: My set-up: 2g AWD, 2.3 stroker, evoIII, A/T

I'm a glass guy - there are a couple of ways, but essentially they cut out the glass, trim out the remaining urethane (the glue that holds in the glass) from the pinchweld and from off the glass, and then they lay fresh urethane and set the glass. it's not too bad for someone who knows what they're doing.

Do you have any videos of the car running? I'd love to see how quickly boost comes on down low.
