last pics of my ugly cobalt

so ive been around here for a while now, since around october 2007. i bought my 05 ss/sc at the end of october 2007 and its been a great car. 235k km and the only major failure has been the firewall breaking around the clutch master cylinder, which turned out to be a bit of a nightmare but i got it sorted. last year i started having issues with clearcoat pealing off the hood, and it soon started all over the roof and tops of the doors, the paint is in pretty rough shape. with having my 944 as my fun weekend toy and wanting to have a truck for a daily i was at a bit of a crossroads with the cobalt. with the paint the way it is its not worth much, maybe a couple grand tops, and if i went through the work and cost of a repaint ($3k minimum) it might be worth $4k, so it didnt make a lot of sense.





i had thought about using the car as a donor for a df goblin, but i really dont have the room for a car that has to be kept indoors, and its a little redundant to have 2 cars built for the same purpose (road coarse/street). i decided today it was time to get rid of my ugly cobalt and move on. here are the last couple photos after i started stripping it apart.

You should start a parts thread.

Are you parting it out verses selling whole?

Damn, car actually looks really clean besides the peeling. Is there no rust on that thing?

ok one more picture of where it is now



i never said i was getting rid of it, im just getting rid of the ugly lol (yes im an *******).

yea its getting painted. i had absolutely no intentions of repainting it, but my boss decided that while he is on vacation he would have our painter come in and paint it, sort of a christmas bonus (despite the fact i dont actually work for him right now due to my health).

the car isnt in terrible shape, the pics in the shop are after a couple hours of scrubbing everything with degreaser. it did actually clean up pretty well. there is no rust in the car as of now, but the pinch weld needs some rust converter applied.

Way to not be clear on your intentions
Well, at least it's getting the facelift it deserves.

did nobody pick up on the fact that everything that was removed from the car was stuff you have to remove for paint (bumpers, all the lights, door handles, etc)? and that the bumpers were sitting on the table next to the car fully disassembled?

i do like how the first reply is about making a parts thread. savage...

Yeah I was wondering why you took the panels off what looked to be a solid car. But now a days with all the partouts you never know.

When I looked at this thread on mobile, I was at first like damn he's gonna sell it. Then went wait that looks like paint prep, but he just said he wasn't going to paint it...must be a part out since you would likely get more for individual parts then the complete car. Glad to see you'll be keeping it instead of selling/parting out.

Yep. Legitimately thought that you had enough with the cobalt and already started parting it out - wasn't a knock against it.

It's quite clear I didn't have the foresight for such a determination.
