This shows a minor scrape on a Mazda Miata. The scratch was feathered out,
primed and painted using BASF paint. There are many ways to get the job
done, this is what was done here:
1. The scratch was feathered out using 280 grit paper until each color was
seperated around 1/2".
2. Next it was backsanded to allow space for the primer to adhere.
3. It was primed with 2 coats of Glasurit 285-10/20 direct to metal
urethane primer and allowed to dry. It was primed with a devilbiss
finishline HVLP gun with a 1.6 tip.
4. Next it was blocksanded using 320 paper, then final sanded with some
400-500 grit paper. Using a block is optional there but recommended.
5. After taping it up it was painted using RM Diamont basecoat in 3 coats.
Each coat was allowed to flash about 5 minutes before the next one. Then 15
minutes before clearing. An Iwata LPH400 was used to apply the basecoat at
about 20 psi.
6. The clear coat used here was BASF DC5335 Glamour clear. It was applied
in 2 coats with about 10 minutes between coats. It was applied using an
Iwata W400 with about 26 PSI at the gauge.
A few dirt nibs were colorsanded and polished afterwards.
Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and
desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with
the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9
months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a
new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR
IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header.
The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual
numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get
her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no
problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more
vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with
the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent
roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K
as much money at all.
Honda civic repair
1993 Honda Civic. Spent $250 repairing the civic. It was my first body
work project. Fixed the rust by adding sheet medal and bodo, bought a used
bumber from the junk yard, painted the car with spray cans, etc..

into making it nice. bought the car with a blown engine so swapped and turbo'd a engine in it and sold it right

beat on it and redline every gear like most people love to do. so enjoy my
cheap slow civic everyone

***Disclaimer: Yes people it IS a ricer! I'm going tell you this before
hand because I'm tired of the frequent haters on YouTube already (its only
been 2 days!) So if you don't like Tuners/Foreigners/Ricers or w/e then
click away! Don't watch the whole thing just to leave a negative response.
But if you are going to bring negativity at least be creative, n****r is
really getting old.***
