Re: Mark's Talon

Spent all last night wiping down the bay with wax and grease remover. Spraying the bay tonight with primer, find all the flaws and fix them, then will come the color and clear. First time ever painting with a gun. Should be fun.

Re: Mark's Talon

I'm honestly very happy with how it turned out. I think I figured out a good spray pattern/ gun control. Granted this is just primer and color and clear will be trickier. Might try and add a little reducer to see if it lays down a little smoother. Only one f-up when my sweatshirt dipped into it on the front clip area.

Re: Mark's Talon

Re: Mark's Talon

Got both subframes and all the rear suspension back in. Put in the windshield wiper assembly and the brake booster/ clutch master and brake likes.. Starting to look like a car again. Routed the harness (just have to get a way to mount the harness to the body)

Going to start putting the engine together tonight.

Still got high hopes to make it to PG's

Thank you!

Engine and Trans are going in tomorrow. Been sick so hoping I got some energy.
Still waiting on my exhaust manifold from JMF, it should be here within a week or so.. Can't wait to see how it looks!

Thanks Mark! I'm actually pretty surprised on how well the paint layed down and how it turned out as it was my first time ever with a paint gun. The plan as of now is to make it up to PG on at least low boost. . I'm beyond excited to see how this turbo compares to the 20g!


Well the engine/ Trans are in.. The wiring harness is in and for the most part connected.
Gotta weld the IAT bung into my upper IC pipe.
Once I get the manifold I'll have to find a radiator that fits.
Just a few more gaskets to go

Re: Mark's Talon

Got the intake and the rest of the harness hooked up. Also got my fuel stuff on.
Still just waiting on my manifold from JMF. Ordered a scirocco radiator to fit in the core support and some Aerocatch hood latches to keep the hood down since the stock latch will need to be removed.

Re: Mark's Talon

Valve cover and front mount make a huge difference.
