Car Of The Month July 2012 :woot:












Last shot before Winter mode - Nov. 2012



September 2012














Hi there people, I've been reluctant to make a thread because of how awesome your rides are compared to mine. Today I just felt ah wth.

Anyway, got this around Dec. 2010. It had 133k miles at that time. It was a bad buy, got a little impulsive 'coz I've always been a 3g fan since it came out. I hardly knew anything about cars, while searching I stumbled upon this site and has been of great help ever since. I've kinda grown to love this pos car though. Now I have been busy finishing up maintenance (almost done tranny fluid service left) while doing small mods here and there. Maybe next year I could do some big mods. I guess the saying goes "Rome wasn't built in a day."

The Beginning: Bought - Dec. 2010

When I first got it. Purely stock, with cancerific blemishes:



After the winter... freakin cancer got worse




A member here Chaz01gt (thanks man!) referred the guy that painted his 3g. Did a great job (not 100% perfect) but did not charge arm and leg. I was just happy the cancer is gone. Now I just need to get it wet sanded & buffed for a better finish

Nice clean looking car. The rims looks good. The paint job looks awesome

I know, lowering will be the popular suggestion. But not really ready yet. For now, some random old pics.
4x4 ftw!






Had nothing better to do today and the rain stopped, so I painted my calipers





I used VHT Caliper paint and Dupli-color high-temp engine clear coat (not sure if it will do any good)

well its definitely going in the right direction. I like the interior lights. This is something i need to look into. Lowering the car will give it a nice look
:yesway: Ha ha I guess minus the racing part.

If you look at the gauge face I messed up in some areas when I removed the amber. I had no idea that acetone was that strong.

I am considering lowering it, I will see when I get my mod budget next year.

Clean car man. I love the black 3g's!
Nice looking car. A paint job can fix so much, but the color of the car is awesome, and you got some good ideas working with it. I like the interior light conversion as well. Keep us posted.
Nice paint job.
Thanks guys! Still a long way to go.

I also messed up with the acetone lmao
lol You too? The messed up areas are kinda covered by the bezel so It's not that bad. But I do have a donor gauge face that I'll replace it with when I get spare time

^...Looks Good! U should paint my calipers next!
That's what my neighbors said! Ha ha :) I don't mind helping you out on this (before it starts to get cold.) Let me know.
