Finally some pics of the new sol! Whole storyline/build to go with it.

Well some of you may remember my old 95 milano red VTEC sol.



Well that turned into this...

Totaled...sucked.


So then a few months of no driving and searching for a new sol and I came up with a shell from Virginia Beach.

It used to be Z_E_N's car. So we bought the shell and had it shipped here. This is how it looked when we got it.


So then both cars were moved to my garage where everything was to be done.


My brother, me, and a friend starting to pull the motor.


So heres basically everything I did.

-Full b16a3 swap.
-Swapped power steering into the car, which included swapping subframes to accommodate the larger rack diameter.
-Full VTEC brake install including swapping the rear drums to discs, as well as the brake booster and MC.
-ASR/22mmITR combo with blox lcas
-Swapping nearly every interior panel for those out of the old sol.
Adding a trunk release lever from the old sol.

Well that whole process took a few months, and keep in mind I had never done anything technical before in my life. Alls I can say is thank god for a chiltons, and if you can't figure something out ask...like I did many times on this site. Thanks to all the members who helped me during this build.

So on with the pics.
An old one with the stockers while waiting for my tires to come in.

Just get a can of krylon stained glass sheer color (yellow) and paint your foglights.

Looks good, but I'd get rid of the advertising you've put up. The badge and the custom tag. You're just begging to have it stolen. :rolleyes


Then again, I don't know much about Illinois :)

The No Trespassing was only for pics, but leaving everything else is ok. The car scene sucks here, no one knows the difference.

Thanks for the comments guys...oh and my exhaust is supposed to resemble a buddy club spec II.

Im 17 years old btw.

Clean looking car bro, I'm 17 as well.

Trying to get into a good college + mod money = confusion and frustration.

I remember the old sol and story from a number of months now. I thought you sold it to insurance for a decent amount of money though?

I like the black a lot better than the red. You move pretty fast too.

You know what I mean fool!!! Advertising = no go. But if theft isn't that big of a problem where you live then I guess it doesn't matter. I'm always cautious though. I don't leave my doors unlocked or windows down or anything like that.

Well we fought insurance to get the car back for a decent price, as well as get some money too. In fact we fought so hard our insurance decided to drop us..in auto, house, and medical insurance. Shitty on their behalf if you ask me.

And actually it was a pretty slow process in doing this, my dad thought a month would be plenty to do everything..ha no way in hell.

But im proud of myself for doing all this..considering the most technical thing i've ever done to a car before was install an intake, an exhaust on a friends car, and change oil. I had a friend that was great with cars that was sposed to help me out, but he was always busy, so finally I just said f it, i'll learn to do this myself..and thats what I did.

This has been a HUGE learning experience. But yeah im happy with the outcome.

Also, what do you guys think of my windshield sprayers routed under my bumper? There is a vid on the first page. I sprayed my gf's dad the other day and he laughed his ass off.

Only bad thing is everyone my age around here is now turning theirs sideways on their hoods to try n spray people as well.

Real original.. :rolleyes
