hey everyone.
names james im 19 and i have lurked here for a long time now and beatles keeps asking me to make a build thread so i decided today was the day.

Welcome to quite possibly the slowest build thread you will ever see. Unless magic happens and i start making real money. anyways hers my car(if i can upload images right still lol)

so far ive mostly done maintenance stuff like replacing clutch,and almost everything else related to the clutch functioning, had my oil changed by a mechanic off the clock and he decided it would be cool not to tighten my oil filter down so it came undone while i was driving resulting in a blown motor. replaced that real cheap ($350 already had motor) with my coilover money:cry2:, i replaced my breaks in the rear, because the front looked brand new though,and a hella lot more stuff im forgetting anyways here she is

then i got some cool points with my exhaust/steering wheel ps yes my horn button is in where my eye vent goes i couldn't figure out any other way to do it



had a spare bumper and cut it up

did some bodywork(first time i feel like it came out better than expected)


then i used my awesome rattle can abilities(real pain is coming when i can get some money coming in right now i spend my paycheck on insurance and gas for the most part)
went from this

Use Firefox as your Browser, it will show you misspellings and suggest the correct one. I have a couple of college degrees and can't spell worth a flip, Firefox is my "Main Man!"

So im planning on going full retard and getting some ricelands for my graduation gift instead of the laptop i was originally asking for. Unless i find something less shitty for = price thats what im going to be stuck with unfortunately. i have absolutely no money or else i would pitch in with them to get something nicer, but hey **** happens.

I know never again, but my grandparents were trying to help me out. I was beyond ridiculously busy with work and stuff so they said that they were going to get the oil changed for me , and they were going to pay for it. How could i say no to that? :fp: since then i have found a reliable mechanic to do all the work i cant( hes the guy that put my engine in and i know hes not fucking stupid, unlike the dipshit at the chrysler dealership.)

oh and i lied i forgot that i changed my trans fluid, and fixed some surface rust on the inside of my door. photos of my car with hardtop are coming soon too.

Was it leaking before it blew?
No. I just put it up in the air in gear and spun thr tire and the other one moved like normal witch leads me to beleave that it might just be the housing, but I don't see why it would crack for no apparent reason. I drove home averaging 30 mph and there wasnt any oil under my car when I left work. I didn't even realize It was broken until my grandpa came home and asked me why there was a pool of oil under my car. I got off at 1 and I posted right after I ran out to my car to see what was going on. It's cracked in a v shape around what looks to be the drain plug.
