Wasting no time.

29hrs of work over Fri/Sat/Sun.

Talk less, work more.



Roll cage repainted/cleared to perfection with new colors, safety red.<br/><br/>Flares riveted. Rivets smoothed and middle dimples filled w/ putty. Blocking the flares for perfection, not a single damn wave allowed.





Mmmmm....eat off it.





More edibles. Sanded clear down on engine bay, going to reclear when spraying chassis, we want zero imperfections.





Manual conversion, filled all holes w jb weld, cut out seals. New tie rods, end pieces, hardware, and bushings!


Next up:

-Finish blocking the rear fenders
-Install rear subframe/differential/suspension
-Roll car out and clean our booth, wash down w/ water to settle dust, and mask up walls/ceiling
-Paint chassis
-Paint each body panel on its own stand
-Wetsand all peices / Buff
-Paint trim/recondition tail lights etc etc
-Relocate to another area for 4 rotor install/wiring etc

Keeping up the momentum,

Rear subframe, differential and all suspension components now installed. Just need to slap on the rear calipers/pads and its a fully rolling chassis again.

More pics to come.

This weekend the plan is to have the chassis painted, cleared, and begin wetsanding. Then onto the individual panels

Very NICE!

Sorry if I missed it, but with all of that work, are you keeping the OEM dashboard?
