      yeah the batter box is going in the trunk, a 2awg power wire is run down the passenger rail into the trunk already. just need to run the 8awg power wires from the trunk to the fuse panel

      i have mine in the back as well with 2g wire, the only problem i had to solve was with the obd2 swap (not using standalone) the power wire that runs from the fuseblock to the battery had to be directly connected to the battery, so i ran the wire from the fuseblock to the battery as well as the power to starter and ground was just done underneath the seat. i want to redo my interior but i dont want to drop the rear seat. i need to figure out something to do with the battery because its just in the trunk and looks ugly lol.

      I bought a Taylor battery box which is nhra approved because I do plane on draging the car alittle and this or a Moroso battery box is the only way to pass tech with a battery in the trunk.

      got a good amount done this weekend, was able to get the seats rebuild with some new foam and washed all the covers. then got them installed and finished mounting the battery box in the trunk.

      yeah in the process of hunting down some euro belts, its on the list with aero wipers. I also sold the MLs and went out and bought the frounts of my new wheel set up, need to order the rears.

      looks like its going to be an expensive month or two for the corrado, again.

      those ones are 16x8 with a 1" lip ET of 21 they are going on the frount. with the 1" smaller and et size it will pull the wheel in 15mm vs the old 16x9 MLs and give me some more clearense on the fender. rears will be 16x9 with a 2" lip probly 21 et idk yet

      Nice

      I know it's all on the offset, but I've always support that 8x16'' is the perfect wheel size perfect for the Corrado. That's the size I would opt for my dream wheels...one day

      I like the look also on Walts car too but not going to do the same. In other news went to go order the two rear wheels and realised someone got my CC number and open a itunes account and charged some on it. So had to cancel the card right there and now have to wait till I get my new card to order the rears.
