      Good progress, I like the interior. I need to find somebody who wants a perfect black pleather interior and is willing to swap haha. Any plans for wheels other than the sawblades?

      I had a nasty wiring issue that caused some delays for the last 4 or so days. I got it fixed last night and now its back to getting it together. I just need to put the front end on it and swap out the rear suspension/wheels and start her up.

      Got the rear coils swapped over (so yes, the rear sits lower now, this pic is 1 coil and 1 sport)



      Got everything inside ran and buttoned up. Got the AWE 45mm boost gauge installed in the center vent.

      Tonight I am gonna get the horns burned on and get the engine bay back in business (put the stuff that's out due to welding, back in and maybe get the front end on too.

      Picked up a TT hi flow cat, so i have to wait for that to come in. Using the mid muffer from the APR exhaust setup and possibly adding another muffler at the end to keep it quiet.

      There are only two cars I actually like on sawblades and I think your car might be the third when it's finished. They look good on red

      Got it registered finally, Saturday. Topped off the P/S, was afraid the rack was toast, but its not. Been driving it around my parking lot since there is no exhaust and the wheels arent balanced yet.

      Did wash it and took some pics of it today. (all pics are phone pics)








      Engine bay is PRE wash.. It was dusty and dirty. All cleaned up now though!

      Who knows...

      the rear is only a half an inch away from where it needs to be. While the wheels are out getting balanced tomorrow, i'll crank the rears down.

      frame wasnt straightened, it was too kinked.. horns were cut off, measurements taken off of my black car, horns bought and welded back into place.
      Who knows...
