    Default I got work out out for me!! GRRRR

    Hi everyone! i recently decided to repaint my 240z. I first got the car when i was 17 and now i'm 18. I though it would be cool to restore one of the all time classic. I've spent lots of hours on the car since i just started with it.
    -The first thing i have to do on the car was to make the engine run, first i remove the engine head and put it to a machine shop and resurface the whole engine head, then they told me that i have to buy new exhaust and intake vales, it cost me a furtune to get it running.
    -second i respray the whole car with flat black, at first it looks so cool but when i go crusing with my friends and look at their car all shinny, with nice body kit, so i order my air damn hahaha.
    -third i than start on the interior, omg the seats were rediculos old and smell :/, so i went the the junk yard and bought two used seats from a mitsubitshi and mount them in the car.
    -while i was still in high school, thinking i have to make some money if i want to fix up the car the way i want it. i went ahead searching around for jobs and was luctant to get hire. i worked for about a year and able to save some $.
    - After graduate from H.S i decided its time to make my dream a reality. i went a head and started strip out the car, wow wat do i know the car over up with bondo!!! it took me forever to remove the cracked bondo. I did some research and bought 2 qut of POR 15 to cover up the rust.
    - As of right now (10-23-2010) i bought polyester primer and start spaying the whole car. it took me 2 gallons to get it perfect
    - i save the hardest thing for last!!! its the welding grrrrrr.... at first i though it wouldn't be very hard. but as i dig deep into the project i realize that i though i know how to weld metal, and it turns out the be the opposite. like most commonly known rust spots on the 240z is the dog legs, the previous owner tried to restore the car by putting bondo hair over the rusted dog legs and now i have to deal with the result. I cut out the dog legs panel and now i tried to weld it with a new metal piece and it seems to be harder than it looks
    _ can anyone help me hic hic
