Progress!!! Plus the end of the white car... Carnage inside

We got a ton done with the car(s) this weekend. Finished the cage and gussets, dimple died and all. The fuel cell mount is set, the interior is clean and scuffed to get paint this week. Gonna get rad with it. Thanks to Brian and Mike for all the help with the car this weekend. Wouldn't have gotten near as for without it.

Large update is large!!!!!!!

Started off by dragging the poor white car inside to finally asses the damage.


Got the car on the lift and it looked like this lol. BACK TO THE FUTURE!!!!


 I did a pretty good job of breaking everything on the passenger side of the car, especially in the rear.. Coilover is destroyed, and I snapped the RUCA, traction rod, and toe arm. The lower control arm looks more like a pretzel now as well. 


Not to mention the axle that I completely blew open and destroyed. It made a very nice mess of everything.


Upon removing the rear sub-frame, it was bent pretty badly as well. Good thing the black car has one!!!




The front lower control arm was super bent, and the tie rod was bent and broken at the steering rack. So far the Powered by Max knuckles look to have held up pretty damn well considering. 


Motor in...




Motor out...


Empty white car :(

 You can really see how much the roof caved from the 8 foot drop.




Sad car on a trailer, ready to go to the scrap yard to become someones can of peaches. Not sure why I thought thumbs up was a good choice for this one... Mike has it right. She has been a great car for the past 4 years, and was instrumental in learning to drift for me. She will be missed!!!!!


Mean tow rig.


On to the black car updates...

Gussets in on the cage lol. That's about it. Hopefully paint this week for engine bay and interior. Then mad swap time next weekend.




I am very happy with how much we accomplished this weekend. Can't wait to get the motor in this thing and drive the crap out of it!!!!

I also got some skirts, and horribly painted them and slapped them on the daily :)
