    Mitsubishi Wagun

    It's teetering on the edge of complete for the season. Some of you saw it at bbq, some of you may have noticed the front fender carnage. The rivet on flares are curing in the garage and I plan to install them this week, but I've recently been considering the switch to a satin black paint, the silver is fine for a nice car, but this car is rough, very rough, the silver only slightly hides it. Going satin black will give me a chance to repair some of the problem spots and also to give up on trying to make a shit paint job look half decent.









    For anyone that isn't aware of this project:

    Specs for the TL;DR type:

    1973 Dodge Colt / Mitsubishi Galant Wagon
    retrofit with a 6 bolt 4G63T, all stock except any cooling modifications to make it work in RWD fashion.
    DSM wiring harness & ECU
    stock 5 speed trans (bolts up), new stock clutch and stock rear axle
    mighty max aluminum radiator
    K&N filter
    2.25 exhaust with Yamaha crotch rocket muffler
    evo8 intake manifold, welded and machined to fit
    SRT4 fmic
    Diamond Racing 15x8 15x10 combo, 195/50 and 225/50's

    Runs on 5psi from the stock 14b, runs good and quiet, built mostly for 'style' and to be something you rarely see on the road. Fast isnt really in the cards for this one, it's just fun to cruise around with.

    That's the point. It being shitty is what makes it cool and unique. Look at "rusty" that BMW was pile of shit but that's what made it so cool. It was what it was nothing more.

    Hahaha, I think it looks pretty sweet as is. Maybe try using flat black plastidip first? If you don't like it, you can peel it off ; )

    Wagons are boss, this one is super bossy. Love it. Keep it silver, flat black will make it look epically ghetto and it looks pretty dope right now. At least in pictures.

    More shitty pictures, I dunno what is up with my lack of ability lately. Probably just too cold to be standing outside setting up a shot.

    Looks pretty cool, but I fucking hate Mitsubishi. I also fucking hate flat black.
