For those of you who don't know, Jillian is the name of my '91 SS. She's getting a JDM EJ20G soon.

She's just the way I left her. EJ20G is on the way... more photos of the swap to come! :)

Hows OIT these days?

It's alright. I'm taking good care of her now. The last photos were from when I took her out on her last leg and killed the engine... So now I have an EJ20G waiting to be swapped in, which will hold me over until I can afford to rebuild the EJ22T and throw the EJ20G heads on.

Also planning on blacking out the interior in the near future.

Clean the damn car. I think you will need to rinse the interior. haha

I love dirty car pics too. Perhaps we should start a sticky thread for dirty car pics with a max of one pic per post. Mods?

Doesn't seem like a shift light be useful in that location. lol The leads are pretty short, also... Then again, I don't even know where they'd connect to.

Here's some progress on blacking out the interior.

Haha... that clutch fork axle gave me a headache too.

I thought it was another allen key on the inside :roll:

BBS to the rescue!

It took the two of us to get the cover loose -- one twisting the hex driver, and the other pulling on a crescent wrench. wrapped around the hex driver. That thing was pretty stuck.

I hope you're not rattle canning it with regular spray paint. All the ricers do that and it peels off every time not long after. That paint isn't designed for interior plastics. Plus I doubt any of them use any kind of adhesion promotor like that bulldog stuff for plastics.

I'm actually using Dupli-Color vinyl/fabric coating for most of this. Before you get on my case about plastic being ABS, I've read on some computing forums of people using VHT's vinyl dye to paint ABS plastic parts on their computers. Here's an example:

http://case-mods.linear1.org/im-high-on-vinyl-dye/

I'm hoping Dupli-Color's product is similar to VHT's product, and thus far, it seems to be coating and holding well, even after a little bending and whatnot.

I plan to do some rub-testing on some of the actual vinyl parts also.

So I threw some change in the tray of the center console section and started shaking it around for a few minutes at a time to test the durability of the vinyl coating. It's holding up really well. Little or no visible wear after a collective 40 minutes of shaking. I've also bee walking around with the door handle in my hand... strange as that sounds, to see if it reacts adversely. No problems there either.

Here's an update:

The idea with the door card is to make the majority of it black, and then dye the fabric insert area a dark grey.

So you are going to paint the rest of the door? It'll look good once it's all black. Probably look good with the grey accented fabric. Definately get pics of the finished interior!

If that stuff doesn't hold up you might try SEM vinyl dye. I've used that on some fiberglass pods I made for tweeters and it was pretty nice stuff. I also used it when I fiberglassed my Apillars to hold tweeters and midranges.
