So Yea, i decided that i wanted the rising sin flag on something but i didnt know What. Then i got the idea that i could paint it on my gas lid (or whatever its called in english). So i went to a scrapyard and found a lid that was red. Masked of a circle and some stripes and painted the rest white! Turned out great in my opinion, What do u guys think?

I can't say as I've ever seen that done with a fuel door. Looks like it turned out great. What made you decide to go with the rising sun rather than the Swedish flag?

[]Filip Larsson

I think its a bit cringey and cheezy.

I Like the japaneese car scene so I thought id represent 😬

[]Owen Freeman

It looks really good. Thanks for posting this, I have been wanting to do this to my gas cover for a bit, but wasn't sure the best way to proceed.

[]Filip Larsson

If you want some guidance id be happy to help! :)

[]Robert Linsenbach

That's awesome Filip even though it's a Swedish car I think it is a net little addition to your build ^-^ I wanna get my fuel cap hydro dipped to look carbon fiber by WetWorkImaging in TN

Tbh the rays look a bit slanted. Still looks good, but my perfectionist eyes see a bunch of slants instead of straight beams

[]Filip Larsson

There supposed to be slanted? Or im wrong?

[]Ernie Szots

From the pics, it looks like it came out great. If I'm honest, I don't know about rocking it on a Volvo. Should have done the Swedish flag!

[]Filip Larsson

Yea, but im some parts of sweden that would be considered racist so i cant do that even tho im swedish....

[]Ernie Szots

Really?! That seems silly, but given the times, I guess it's not that hard to believe.

[]Filip Larsson

Ye its true. In some parts, if i have a swedish flag it must mean that i dont like people that arent swedish, which is ridicoulus...

I had just recently gotten this app a few days ago and I don't have any good pictures of my car 😂

I want to know, if you could have any car to choose, which car would you want to restore from a really bad condition or build from stock. My choice is the 1968 coupe sitting in my driveway at the moment. The only difference I would wish for it is it being a fastback, but in the same condition or worse, they sell for 6x what I bought mine for. #project_car #mustang #carporn #weekender #project #car #ford

[]Justin Cavallucci

rx7 restoration, not many choose to restore imports but that would be interesting to see progress over time!

[]Brandt Prang

1970 Plymouth roadrunner. Or a 59 Chevy apache

[]Thomas Hisaw

Restore? 71’ Plymouth Hemi Cuda. With retrofit Projector Headlights And Hellcat Engine with a 426 Stroker kit.

Or fully restored that’s just as good

[]Justin Cavallucci

That would be a beast of a car! wouldn't want to roll up on that!

Edit: You'd have to do some crazy frame modifications to make sure it doesn't flex and break in half if you did end up doing that. All would be worth it for one psycho car!

[]Thomas Hisaw

Maybe someday. Best of luck with the Mustang! Congratulations!

[]Justin Cavallucci

Thank you and thank you! BTW: sweet a4, I used to have one but it wasn't Quattro. and I never got to experience the turbo as the clutch was shot. The dang thing was invincible!

Edit: HOLY HELL THAT MIATA THO sick!!!!!

[]Thomas Hisaw

Thank you. And Thank you Lol. The Audi blew an oil line on the Turbo (my fault) and it seized the engine (also my fault). The Miata was an adventure. I loved that car. But after $8000 I wasn’t where I wanted to be yet. And I’m inpatient. So I sold it for my Toyota 860.

And seeing that you now have two mustangs. That’s pretty awesome man.

You can also see a few other projects We have done. https://youtu.be/aW8P5CO5sxs

[]Jeff Bowman

Oh yeah! I’d either make a bare bones, caged, full-out race car out of it, or fix what’s necessary to get it rolling and then try my hand at rallying!!

[]Sammie Robertson

hmmm I haven't given much though to doing a restoration project

[]Justin Cavallucci

Consider it! Mine so far has been quite fun. Well, my definition of fun. Finding a huge hole in the floor pan (i already have replacements) and smashing my fist through it was just absolutely a hoot. Also cleaning up the interior just to make it visibly appealing again was such a gratifying experience. The car had 3 Dyson vacuum loads full of crap that was all over the floor and seats. But oh my gosh how it shines after cleaning.

[]Robert Sixto

I'd love to bring a derelict NSX back to life. A Jaguar XJ220 would be amazing too.

[]Justin Cavallucci

What is a derelict nsx? I know the jag but never heard of that nsx?

[]Robert Sixto

Derelict, as in run down/bad condition

[]Justin Cavallucci

Ah, never heard that term used before. Thanks for the knowledge! That would be pretty cool, really fun too! Might even do a restomod on it and give twin turbs!

[]Robert Linsenbach

Mine would be the lovely car that I was initially gonna rebuild but sadly had to sell a 1992 Honda Civic Hatchback. Really would love to build from the ground a EG Hatch

[]Drew Riassetto

I love how the 5th generation handled. I was fighting a loosing battle with mine and just had to part with it. And I needed the space. I will miss that car.

[]Robert Linsenbach

That's exactly what happened with my EG. plus previous owners neglect did a lot to this car. one day perhaps

[]Justin Cavallucci

It's rare to see a perfect condition hatch! I have never seen one without defects.

[]Alex chris Marshall

To be honest , the e39 bmw i have now. She's running great but has alot of miles and i cant see her working without flaws for much longer. Ive been planning a S52 or S54 swap and definetely a transmission and diff swap (prefferabl a 6spd) it is my 1st car and it means alot to me so i can say building her into the above would be my dream :)

[]Justin Cavallucci

That's a great feeling for sure! Remember, flaws lead to improvements! There is a reason my car looks and runs the way it does today! Don't know how expensive it would be but what about the 8 speed sequential transmission?

[]Alex chris Marshall

Dont really know much about that one in particular. My current gearbox is a slow 5 spd auto so anything with a clutch and shift lever will appeal to me:)

[]Justin Cavallucci

Haha I specced out swapping one into my stang a while back, the whole thing ended up costing $8000 but sequential aren't gold for daily driving so I stayed away.

[]Andrew Taylor

There is a long list of project cars I could name. Unfortunately my age and financial limitations will only allow me maybe one more car build in my life. If I were do a higher priced build than what I'm doing now $35k-$40k build it would be a high revving all motor 3.7 v6 factory 5 racing Shelby replica build, strictly track purpose built. $20k-$25k build would be a Barra 310T powered '67 Stang. JDM crazy? How about a Mazda mzi(Ford 3.7) powered Mazda AZ-1? Perhaps if my welding gets better I'll make a tube frame grip monster powered by a Ford 3.7 destroked to 3.0, ecoboost twin turbo setup attached to a 6R80 & paddle shifters.

[]Justin Cavallucci

Haha 3.7 fan I see! They are real great motors for building a lot of lightweight cars!

[]Andrew Taylor

Well I did a crap load of research into these motors before I even started doing my current swap into my FC. It's dimensions are ridiculously close to that of a turbo II motor and only 50lbs more. It amazes me that Ford is pushing these direct injection ecoboost motors when the 3.7 is wayyy better. The damn 2.3 ecoboost in the mustang has a cast crank compared to the 3.7's forged. Ford tests the 3.7 @10k rpms in the lab. I find it incredibly funny that Ford discontinued the ranger because the only logical motor to put in it would be the 3.7 which would make it a far more appropriate racing truck than the raptor. It actually disappoints me that Mazda basically sold the rights to Ford. (Which is why I don't consider it as blasphemous to put it in an rx7 or a miata)

[]Justin Cavallucci

Yeah! My 4.0 has the forged rods but crank can handle 600. Pistons are it's limiting factor. But the 3.7 is a beast of a motor. I wish it was twins with this motor in the raptor too.

[]Andrew Taylor

The FWD 3.7 heads are the same as the ecoboost heads, you only need to drill & tap one hole for the stock manifolds to bolt up. The RWD 3.7 on the other hand has a slightly different configuration, you'd be missing one bolt entirely. Super6 has a kit but the cost is higher than a single turbo custom setup would be. Some guy on YouTube swapped a 3.5 ecoboost in his 3.7, it was hard for me not to laugh and criticize him considering he had less power than an f150eb

[]Justin Cavallucci

See, the supersixl stuff is of value if you are shooting for the highest numbers possible. It's also remanned rather than used

[]Andrew Taylor

I'm not too fond of their prices. Plus there is new 3.7 tech coming out of Texas that'll make 1000hp easily attainable with the 3.7

[]Justin Cavallucci

Oh snap! I gotta check that out, you know where the tech is coming from?

[]Andrew Taylor

It's all on the hush hush, only about 10 people know about it. Really I shouldn't be saying anything. Lol it's just having to do with the intake manifold which will allow for a way higher flow rate than stock.

[]Justin Cavallucci

Oh that sounds crazy, I can't wait till it's released, curious what it is that allows that!

[]Andrew Taylor

The real major choke point on that motor is fuel, the holes on the injector cups on the fuel rail are only 1/8th inch if that. I suspect 800-900hp is the max without solving that issue via a different rail or extra injectors.

[]Justin Cavallucci

Well actually you can bore those holes out. Same issue on my 4.0. Now they are nearly 1cm wide. I have pics in my build list

[]Phil Salvo

There's only one. Ferrari F-40 LM. About 20 in existence 720 to about 900hp depending on restrictions. 706Nm torque. 0-60 3.1 seconds. Top speed of 228mph. Anywhere from 2 to 3 million $. Even if I was able to afford one, good luck prying one from someone's private collection. As far as project cars, Aristo swapped gs300. Hopefully by the middle of next year my sleeper will be started.

[]Robert Sixto

F40 is it for me too, if I had to pick just one Ferrari, that's the one for me.

[]Justin Cavallucci

Can't wait to see your build progress! I'm sure we all have one classic exotic we like but is so far out of reach it doesn't pass through our mind as possible

So autocross is something that I do want to do in the future. and just want to hear about your experiences with it! #Autocross #trackday #trackcar #honda4life

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Sheldon Hall

Autocrossing is very fun and I would recommend it to anyone. It really teaches you the limit on your car. To be honest, you might not get as much seat time compared to a track day, but it's also a totally different experience. It's also less straining on your car compared to the track.

[]Robert Sixto

There is definitely a work aspect to autocrossing, but it is a lot of fun. I love a good track day on a full road course, but the expense is much greater, not just for entry costs but consumables as well. Then there's the possibility of having an off/wreck during a track session. Autocross allows you to push the car in a more surgical way, with the expense and the stakes being much lower since you never reach very high speeds. For $40 or so, you really can't beat the bang for buck factor of autocross. I did a brief write up on my blog here: https://www.chicagocarlife.com/blogs/news/windy-city-miata-club-autocross
The bottom line, you will learn a lot about your car autocrossing it.

[]Andrew Johnson

It's the single best way to learn how to drive your car at the limit and is the perfect gateway if you ever want to do get into road course racing. I autocrossed for 6 years with the SCCA, made a ton of friends and learned my car(s) better than I thought possible, all while not breaking the bank. I highly recommend it!

[]Mister Modtomic

Autocross is fun, but...you will get up early to spend at least half your day for 4 - 8 minutes of "track" time. But it is cheap track time and it's a great opportunity to hang out with other car guys. You'll also get that rare opportunity to drive your car at and above it's limit, learning what happens there in a safe environment. Wear sunblock and drink lots of water!

So yeah, from time to time I spend some money on my car. Trying to keep it reasonable, but it is not always easy. Just do what makes you happy!

[]Simon Gelinas

Honda s2000. Buy now and watch it appreciate in value. Otherwise a c6 427 vert is a great bang for the buck.

[]Marshall Owens

I know you want a vert, but maybe get a newer Mustang with the the 5.0. You get almost 400 out of the box and you can make pretty decent power with the stock internals. With some mods, you can make them handle stupid good too.

[]Alek Merkoulov

There are 2 main reasons why I like roadsters; lightweight and agility. The mustang has the hp and torque I'm looking for but I don't get the excitement I want with everyday driving, especially in an area like where I live where the roads twist and turn. A small well handling 250 hp roadster would honestly be more fun for my use than the Mustang GT. That's why I was hell bent on the miata and frs for a while. Take off 800-1300 pounds and the give me the same hp and torque and you would give me exactly what I want

[]Marshall Owens

I have to agree with you on light weight cars. Agility is a huge fun factor for me personally. How do you feel about the S2000? They have a pretty stout motor and can take some boost when you want to turn the power up. Pretty much one of the best roadsters you can buy.

[]Alek Merkoulov

That is an idea and I like it lol there's another route I can look at. Wish they'd bring it back for a newer model. Thanks!

Today I found some inspiration to work on my car in an unlikely way. I decided I wanted to clean the inside so I didn't feel like I was hopping into a piece of junk every time I got into it. I found out the true extent of how badly damaged the floor pans, carpets, and headliners are as they each disintegrated into tiny little bits as I cleaned them. I eventually stopped caring about maintaining it as it
