    Keith6110 1999 Reincarnated Galant

    EDIT: Milestones in this build:

    Engine Bay Painted

    Bumpers from shattered to primed + Fog light molding

    *Painted*

    SVR4 painted separate, other grey parts + misc parts re-cleared.

    Headlight Repair

    *Picture Whored + Wheel fix*

    *Coilovers*

    *6g74T parts list*



    Reincarnated - Soul has moved to different body =)


    So I got my new G today from New Hampshire (5+ hours away), I will be swapping my old engine and tranny into this new shell. The galant is silver+ugly baby blue or some crap lol. It'll be going in the garage and coming out Gold just like the old G! (EDIT: I've decided to go with Rotor Glow Orange instead of gold)

    Plans are to strip it down a bit and get it ready for paint. I will be using some metal from my old galant to fix this one where it needs it. The underbody is in decent condition as well. Exhaust and all will be moved over.

    Here are some pics:












    She's full dark grey? Leather and has a Fun-roof.

    Very nice, although I'd go with a custom color since you're already gonna be repainting it.

    What Greddy said. Do something you wanted to do with your old G. Don't replicate your old G. Make it better than your old G.

    I agree, let your old G keep its identity, & start this new one with its own, but make it even better. Interior looks pretty decent, this car should turn out well.

    Nice work man, keep updating the thread as you make progress. As for color choice, paint it whatever color you like. There are some sick new colors out there on the 2010 and 2011 cars that might spark your interest. I know lexus/toyota has a beige color thats a little darker than normal with a ton of flake in it, its sick.

    Thanks man. I felt better when I had it back on the driveway. It almost got hit on the way back after nightfall because people in newburg, ny were a bunch of assholes. I would say just this guy, but everyone it seemed was cutting everyone else off. People texting with their infants in the back. I can say more but you get the point.

    It crossed my mind. I still might.

    I got it for $1000. The engine doesn't run, but it seems the starter clutch is seized or just plain the engine is. That crap doesn't bother me, I just wanted the shell and one that hasn't been hit hard before. I think I probably paid too much but I really don't care at this point, I just wanted a galant back that seemed to be in decent shape and v6 (for the ecu/wiring harness).

    I liked TJ's car back in the day, the metallic sunset orange from the corvette c6.
    I like my gold obviously, but if I were to pick a real clean color, I think I would go with the same one I did my gsx wheels in. Gunmetal grey. I might look into some other colors but we'll see.

    yea, there is some rust here and there. But I can sand blast where the rust is on the body and then hit it with primer when its down to bare steel.

    Nice one man the good thing, no matter what color you paint it, you have a nice GRAY interior. I hate the tan interiors. The leather looks good and those wheels aren't bad. Put that blueish gray you put on your other wheels on those and they just might make the car look great

    I'm glad you are jumping right back into this

    Thanks man. I'm pretty excited about the interior.



    Here's my wheel paint: EDIT: These were from late August/Early September. Just showing this pic to give general idea of the color.
