I guess rebuilding the bottom end depends on the milage. I wouldn't have known about the bent rod for example. It also depends on your previous compression. Or if you're putting any stress on the bottom end.

Anyways, it'll be 3 weeks till my next update. I hate waiting...

Nothing new to report, just a couple pictures of a nice clean head resurfaced and valves done.

Parts back from the machine shop. Balanced crank, wiseco pistons and k1 rods. clutchmasters flywheel and stock harmonic balancer.

The KL31 crank is a bit over 35lbs so I saved almost 5lbs weight off the crankshaft.

I made the decision to scrap this car. Mostly because of color. It has too many. I found my white MX-3 that I've wanted and will be using that as a base.

So now it's time to watch this car slowly become disassembled and scrapped.

I have the interior packed away. Seats and panels:

I've sold off a lot of miscellaneous parts. I'm storing whatever else I determine may be useful as well.
I do not have much time to work on cars so it's a slow process. I generally remove parts as I sell them, then store whatever other miscellaneous parts I had removed during the process as spares.

At one point my garage has been such a disaster that it looked like this:

And that wasn't that long ago...

Recently I sold off the dash:

So the interior is looking like this at the moment:

I rolled her out on wheels for the last time.

Stripped all the parts on the undercarriage

And in the engine bay:

And in the rear:

And the interior:

So... Next stop, scrap yard. Goodbye little bugger.

The car's gone.
The base shell weighed 580lbs. The only parts I left on the car would be the front windshield and the gas tank. Probably weighs closer to 530ish if I removed everything.
