Evo 8 fq 300 full strip and rebuild

As many know my 5 blew up and the plan was to sell up and find a black evo 8 but was struggling, settled on a 5 until this came up which was perfect for my needs, many have seen it for sale etc as this is the one that had the cam cover blasted and painted and sand destroyed the engine

I got the car on Sunday and the strip down started, the engine and oil cooler are scrap, over all its quite a clean car, but now its time to make it better than its ever been

Full strip, underside resto, as found a small hole behind side skirt, fit another engine, 9 bumpers and carbon and some nice wheels, all bolts re zinged etc

If people seen the my old black 5 shell then this will be almost the same treatment, good thing with this is I have everything to put straight back on as its a complete car lol

So some pics, not much done but by end of week it will be bare bar glass and doors

Wheels are definitely going up for sale and the mudflaps lol, need to replace bonnet and boot lid due to corrosion but not a problem

Wow nice project. Good luck with the build

Looks like the underbody needs some luving. Had the exact same problem... Previous owner didn't look after the car

Underneath is really good, I'd rather have a car with no undersell on it as then I can see problem areas, its just flaky paint, no holes nothing it's all solid, so its going to be easier for me now to get the underside done to a high standard

Only hole is on drivers sill behind sideskirts, really happy with the shell
