    gutting, [almost] complete :)

    rewiring has commenced.

    i just need to get the tar out with dry ice :D man, this project is fun. its nothing like my dc2 because i have another car to drive and im not fed up with it. building cars is actually fun! woot

    my 'dash' (as of now) i ditched the heater core and fans because this is a track specific car :)

    inside as a whole

    the worst of the wiring...but the colors look like they match up for the most part. im going to SOLDER everything. not just twist it and duct tape it :dead: (previous owner was a MORON)

    basically, you have crushed dry ice (or pellets, but in a snow like form is the best) and let the ice freeze the tar for 15 mins or so. then take a hammer and chisel to it and it should come off pretty well. ill document it when i do it (probably later this week)

    some people had residue left over once it chipped off, then you scrubb it down with goo-gone :)

    happy de-taring your cars haha

    its a good way to lose 10 or so lbs :eek:hsnap:

    ok update

    took out an additional 10lbs today this is the way to remove tar. crushed up dry ice. then pound the tar with a hammer (rubber mallet) and it will crack off

    No, sorry I meant a shot of the entire inside of the car. Not all put together. Like a shot from the back of the car looking in.
