How to fishhook a 240sx / Single stage amazingness!

Luigi has been working into the wee hours of the night fabricating in order to get the car painted this past weekend, and it happened. He fabbed a sweet penis looking structure to hold my steering column, also pumped on that. Huge thanks to Luigi's dads shop 'Mario's Engines' for letting us use the hoist and giving us shop time to paint it.

Why am I so pumped on our paint method? Well if any of you are like me, you absolutely despise sanding. This method involved 0 sanding what so ever, and turned out perfect for our application. We used an ebay single stage paint in a dark gray configuration. No reducer needed! We cleaned up the bare metal with thinner and tack cloths and sprayed away.

Keep in mind the car is going to get wrapped, so this is just a nice looking base and interior spray. It was never meant to be show car quality, and was meant to have minimal prep plus be easy to repair.

On top of all of that, Jesse was able to get some amazing shots that have a very vintage / rustic feel to them because of the old school nature of the shop we were in. I love it!

On to the pics!


First step was to vacuum most of the dust and sand out.

Once at the shop, we immediately fish hooked the car and stood it up vertically. This served two major purposes (3 if you count looking awesome). First being to paint the bottom of the car, and second to drain the 15lbs of sand from the media blasting. When we tipped the car up it was like an hour glass had been started. Weird and awesome. I have never seen the bottom of a 240sx like this before, and it was pretty cool.

The first night we wanted to see how well the cheap paint covered, so we sprayed the underside of the car only. It can out awesome!

We let that paint set over night and continued to the top side the next day. We had some issues with the regulator on the gun, so it was spraying at 30psi the whole time. Luigi did a great job dealing with that and had minimal runs.

dat heat!

It turned out nice and shiny, and is a great step towards getting finished! 

On to the rad shots by our very own Jesse Wood!

 More progress this week and almost ready for paint. Cage is completely done now, and finishing touches are being added to the front and rear of the car to get the fab work done by weds for paint.  Can't thank Luigi enough for all his help on this. Jesse Wood was on hand as well, filming for our build video as well as shooting some hot snaps of the process. I'll post those up at the bottom.

I don't do much of the fab work, but I like to help when I can. I made all of the plates and dimples for the whip, and they came out pretty damn good if I must say. I want to dimple everything in my life now.

Preview of the machetes I made.

Let's start with the "nascar style" door bars. I love the way these look, and luigi did a great job on them.

We also added the mandatory wheel intrusion bars as well.

He also started on the radiator mounts for the rear of the car, dimples of course included.  :)

Here is the 6 step process to make plate to hold the badassness that is dimple die.

Step 1.

Step 2.

Step 3.

Step 4.

Step 5.
Step 6.
We also did the sections of the car in the front and rear of the car. 

I love the way this looks. More gussets and dimple dies to come for sure. 

Jesse Wood is good, understood? Thanks for the epic shots man. <3

Drill holes yo.

See you all next time!
