I thought you deleted this thread?? I vote no on cf wrap, your silver paint is too sexy to cover up!

Btw that wheel fitment in the back is sexxxy! Why don't you just pull the fenders upfront?

Oh yeah, with the interior stripped, I get all kinds of heat soaking through the fire wall and transmission well. Anything that will vent some heat will be greatly appreciated! lol. I'm going for the Scoot style hood by Seibon. Some people call it the cheese grater hood...but it looks like this:

Haha, that was an April fools joke, the thread was back up less than a week later, I saved all the posts.

Thanks man! I hope to have at least one aspect of it done by the end of this summer. If not, then oh well. It's my baby and I don't think I'm ever gonna get rid of it.

June 17th update!

Good news! Production on my custom front fenders started today and they should be ready in about 2 weeks.

If I hadn't already mentioned it, the Koyo rad has been installed. I raised the suspension a little bit so that I could fit the new wheels and not have the bumper scrape everywhere. I ordered my last gauges and sensors last night and capped off the air pump hose which was making an annoying gargling sound.

Now if Canada Post would stop being on strike, I could get my damn coupler and fix my boost leak to finally shoot a video of it and show you guys the work since. For now, enjoy these few shots of her (all dirty!!)

Thanks Chris. Maybe some time soon I'll detail the doors back. My paint is disgusting and scratched everywhere. Leave it to the detailer to not have flawless paint. lol.

I don't like it but thats just me... Maybe its because my heart goes up and down not in circles.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

That's cool man. I don't expect everyone to like it. After all, I'm not building it for everyone else, I'm building it for myself. Glad you stuck to just saying you didn't like it rather than saying it's been ruined and that I've turned into a POS and that I should be set on fire. Fair play. Thanks for sharing.

That's what it was! I was in Toronto for vacation last 4 days, and kept seeing people standing on the side of the street, I was wondering what it was.

I removed the radio and the A/C...and the heater core, and all hoses, and A/C pump, and condenser, and all hoses as well. I just have the control unit still in place because it's an annoying hole to have there. There are no wires in back of that either I removed the radio because that's where all the gauges will be going as soon as they come in.

Thank you for the compliment I hope to see your story soon too!

Maybe. But I'll put my limited time to good use first. Must finish v-mount, and gauge wiring first. I just relocated the battery to the trunk (loose in the rear passenger "seat" hole - waiting to receive Taylor Battery box) and now have plenty of room up front to start the test fitting of my intercooler and also start fabricating the mounting brackets.

So, I finally got my coupler I've been waiting for for over a month, I got my Carbon Fiber wrap for the bumper and I changed my belt where the A/C pump used to be. So this means no more boost leak! I'm gonna try to wrap the bumper this weekend.
