Yeah, after a lot of head scratching and planning I was finally able to get something worked out with Tim to come and make a harness. So far things are going smooth. Harness is completely out, interior is out. Tim is working on getting the new fuse box ready. We're using a fuse box from a late model windstar. The fuse box will be going in the glove box. The Honda CBR1000 pencil coils will be powered with Acura Legend ingiter and a HKS cdi box (amplifier). Also pulled out the stock radiator and will be installing the Griffin radiator. Thanks to Nathan my MS3/MS3x now speaks wirelessly ;) Custom manual steering rack should be here sometime next week as well.

I should be driving her in a couple weeks so we will definitely have to get on with planning a meet. And Don, I still have good intentions of sending that bezel to you lol You might be on the backburner but you're still on the to do list.

Thanks for that... I never sent money. Lol. So I can relate. With my car issues the interior has been less than important.

Best of luck. Cant wait for a start up video.

Fuse box is done. Rear wire harness is done. Tim is now working on the dash harness. He said he's saving the fun part for last lol Just realized I need different spark plugs to use with the COP so hopefully they get here by Friday. Fuse box has been fitted into the glove box and it......fits like a glove ;)

Car is getting close! It was almost on the dyno but then a cbr coil failed and I had to order some since nowhere local had one. Exhaust isn't all the way done in the video, 3" to rear axle. (it's finished now) Higher rpm sounds crappy because some setting was off and was causing spark to fire at wrong time in higher rpm, that's fixed now and sounds much better with exhaust finished. Brought him the coils today and hoping to have it by the weekend depending on what his schedule looks like.
