I have been selling a lot of you guys parts and I thought you might want to see where the majority of the $$ are going. I had been working on a 97ls when I had the opportunity to purchase JPG's 93ls (the one in the upper right corner of mx6.com's home page). It had been in a minor fender bender and was in some serious need of tlc - front and rear bumpers cracked, sideskirt broken in half, mismatched wheels, red fender, etc...

** FINALLY, UPDATE PICS - STILL RUNNING WITH THE STOCK MOTOR, BUT THE BODY IS DONE AND SHE IS DRIVEABLE!! The engine bay needs a good clean up and the body needs to be polished again, but it really feels good to have it on the road.























Anyway, stripped the 97 of everything and started on the 93. I'll continue to update the pics as I go, but the body will be complete this week. The interior and suspension upgrades will be done in the next couple of weeks. Tom at mx6performance is doing a supercharged motor for it as well as a few other goodies. If you have questions or suggestions, let me know.

Awesome man... that bumper is going to be sweet.

See that you got some cool stuff like coilovers too, everything looks pretty damned clean and non-rusty, heh. What color are you going to go for?

Oh, and that toolbox is awesome. I want one. :)

Thanks Garrett. You haven't seen anything yet. The supercharged motor Tom is working on was actually removed from StreetThisMx6's car. In addition, just about every suspension upgrade and motor mount upgrade available, unorthodox aluminum flywheel and crank pulley, stage 3 kevlar clutch, rr-racing's big brake kit, 18" hart c2s, jeff jeske 65mm throttlebody AND limited slip differential, 2.5 inch magnaflow exhaust, hotshot headers, testpipe, hotshot cai, and a bunch of other stuff that I won't go into yet.

Dang! Glad to see that JP's MX-6 didn't end up in a junkyard. Those last pics he posted were rather depressing. Nice work, Hughes!

Now I know where the engine and tranny money that I sent you last year went. You are the man when it comes to used parts for the MX-6.

I fixed the IMG tags for you. It looks like you cut and pasted from my How To. I had formatted the IMG tags so they would not work (so it actually showed the code instead of just the image). When you copied it, it copied the invisible formatting that prevented it from working as well.
Best bet is to just type in the

:cool:

Going to be very sweet when it's finally done... I'm glad that so many of us have been able to have a part in it, after you've helped so many of us.

Good luck Mike

Djlockjaw80 - Justin, yes, it was kind of hard to ditch the tail light project. I had them fitting and the deck lid was modified, but I wasn't REALLY happy with the body curve below the lights and I couldn't resolve how to solve the problem. It looked really good from about 10 ft away, but just not quite right up really close which was pissing me off. I figured I had another 200 hours of work to put into that car where I could finish the body up on this one in about 80 to 100. Time being what it is lately, I chose to finish this one.

eXtreMX-6 - Those horns are coming off - the only thing they are good for is my dad's boat :)
