Boosted B-Series Build… Part 1

In the last post you guys would have gotten a basic overview of the plans Corey has for the build. In today’s post, similar to most builds; it just gets more and more expensive. Corey purchased another shell with hopes of transferring his setup. I have some shots of when he first got the car and when it made its way over to bodywork.

Those who may need a recap on what’s going on so far, I’ve provided the link to the previous post below…

Boosted B-Series Build… Introduction

Now you are all caught up, let’s begin…

As I would have mentioned, Corey acquired a hatchback shell with the plan to swap everything into it. But not for the reasons some of you may think; from the time Corey started the build he was having some difficulty. While upgrading the motor mounts to Hasport, Corey noticed that the car was previously in a collision and the front was never repaired properly. There was a serious crack coming from the wheel well to where it meets the chassis. Every since then Corey has been looking around for another shell. Until he came across one that was at the right price…

Another shot of how the car sat when Corey got it back to the workshop…

One of the good things about this shell is that the body work has already started, so Corey wouldn’t have much to do…

Interior pieces that came with the shell, that Corey now has to sort through and clean up…

Interior shot, the dash removed and the steering column on the floor… The car was previously automatic but none of that will matter…

Tailgate and an interior view looking towards the front…

The engine bay is the main area that would need a significant amount of work done…

Sound deadening being removed…

Interior panels and other misc pieces loaded up to be cleaned and painted if necessary…

The car currently being prepared for paint…

Left side pretty much complete and ready for priming…

A view of some of the additional work Corey had done…

Corey decided to remove the wheel well and have it plated in aluminum. This will cut down on excess weight and will be less of an eye sore with the rear bumper he plans on using…

A view of the underside as it nears completion…

Well that’s a wrap for today’s post, thanks for taking a look…
