Well it's been a long time coming and I finally have enough progress to throw up a thread. Here's the quick low down.
lots of oem replacement stuff
8.5:1 head spacer
Kinetic Stage 1 kit (upgraged)
SP Short Runner Intake
Non ABS swap
Body (all done by Dave or bmxrado)
Shaved Bay full tuck
Shaved Seams, emblems, wipers, rain tray, washer nozzles, antenna, side markers, exhaust port, smoothed rockers, rear wiper, a/c delete
Okay so enough text and on to the ridiculous amounts of pictures that everyone loves!

They are so easy to take apart and its always better not to tape if you can. For this kind of paint job and I'm sure you paid a lot, I would expect the mirrors to be taken apart rather than taped. Especially with all of the time put into taking the rest of the car apart.
im diggin the rear arches
I know I know! I wanted to make a one page build for all the body stuff and quick updates as I finish her up. I plan on spending every night next week on wiring, and fab'in up the power steering like dogger did on his car. Lots to do but I feel like it's going fall into place soon. We can't all buy fitted turbo kit's made buy other people. cough cough (mike) cough...Jesus Christ, its about time.
Still debating between fender and rail, but the fender is so much nicer for access. I'll have to decide once I get it here. It's my first tuck and build for that matter so advice is always appreciated guys. Especially dogger, sean, and dave with fully shaved bays. Pickin up the block from the machine shop in 10 minutes so I'll have some pics by tomorrow of the engine build.
looking good Casey
And I'm really diggin those wheels, they will polish up nice
"You can take my Corrado when you pry it from my Cold Dead Hands".
I used Testors Candy Red Transparent paint available at any local hobby shop. Then I had Dave clear them at his shop. I think they came out awesome.
And yes, windows out are a must when you go through this much work. If your doing a quickie job I can understand tapin but spendin this much glass out is appropriate.
