  • Zack's Saturn overhaul...update: exhaust video

    Don't have a build thread for the turd so why not make one now.

    History of the car: My grandparents owned this car since it was brand new, and I was the lucky one to receive it when I turned 16. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" />

    My plan is to park it over the summer and get as much done to it as possible so when winter comes around I wont mind driving it as much. This is everything that I want to get done.

    new battery
    replace front window regulators with power ones (drivers side is broken)
    replace non adjustable mirror w/ power side mirror
    Install the last power door lock actuator (other 3 are installed)
    Install my component speakers in front doors. (Tweeter is going in the window crank hole)
    new radio (Kenwood KDC-x891)
    complete the black interior
    new brake pads
    new rotors
    SS brake lines (maybe)
    flush out the brake fluid and replace with new stuff.

    oh yea and maybe a retrofit, but that is going to be last on my list.

    Thats all I can think of at the moment. Im sure there will be more stuff as the summer progresses.

    This is what she looks like all cleaned up. Picture was taken last summer.


    Here's the car as it sits currently.

    and here are the components that came today. They were only $49 shipped and will be fine for my needs.

    Damn rust. I know Saturn sells replacement pieces, but I think it's gotten to bad for those.



    And these are what I came back from the JY with today.
    2 rear door panels. No cracks at all
    2 rear door sill covers.




    Here's the one that is painted and is currently drying. I cleaned the hell outta it, applied 3 coats of adhesion promoter and like 4 coats of paint.


    Here's all 4 door sill pieces together.

            It was meant for a 3rd gen so I had to modify it. I still havent gotten the right size coupler so I had to use some peel and seal to make the pipe larger.

                One more door panel done and the dome light. This one turned out great. I used pretty much a whole can of paint on it. I scratched at it where the fabric will cover and no marks or anything.

                It's really bright in the garage so it doesn't look as black as it really is.

                I think im going to get the replacement panels and take it to someone that can weld them in and if the area is larger than the replacement they'll have to do some metal work.

                            Little update..

                            Painted the other door panel. Came out just as well as the other one.

                            Went to another JY that didnt have anything I really needed. Ended up finding a yellow 01 sc2 and grabbed the 1 remaining black emblem on it as well as the a/c line that runs down the drivers side to the dryer. Im still debating if I want to keep the a/c or not.

                              I freshened up the passenger door panel today. Repainted it cause I didnt do the best job when I originally did it. I also installed the tweeter. Looks sweet imo.
