      Looking good.

      It's going to be a PITA keeping up with these 6 cylinder rabbits through the GA mountains.

      bingo!

      so mike sent some updates the other day of the progress.

      it took a few days but they were able to figure out how to remove the fender in order to run an extended harness thru...



      Freshened up the front end with poly bushings, tie rods, ball joints, etc....



      welded -6 an fitting on the fuel rail to run an lines from the front to back. the factory lines were too small for the vr6 motor so the car will get new lines




      they cut off all the unessesary brackets on the steering rack and grounded back down smooth and painted rack. Looks much cleaner to me now.... they are also developing a new style of rack boot for an oem+ look as seen on the driver side....





      I wanted a little something extra without going crazy so a set of Techtonics 268 cams were ordered and came in... time to install new guides and chains....



      so all and all things moving nicely and much love out to the crew up at eurowise...

      take care,
      nash

      Wait a second, I thought this was a project to keep you busy while Eurowise was finishing the other rabbit, but now they are doing all the fun stuff on this one too
      Looks great though, they are doing an excellent job as usual!

      Yeah x2, is the blue car on permanent hold now?
      I think we all thought it would be done by now.

      I love this white car project but I think we all wish the blue monster would run one day soon.

      i know...

      2 main things caused me to change my initial plans:

      1) i had purchased the car expecting it to be in much nicer shape than it really is.... once i took delivery of it and saw it in person and went through the stack of reciepts, i realized it wasn't... so decided to go a different route...

      so 2) time. beginning of the year is the craziest time for me with work. it took me 2 weeks to get around to rolling the fenders and another 2 weeks to get the coilovers on.... having said that, time for me is much better spent staying employed... (i.e. employment >hobby).

      taking that one weekend off to head up to eurowise was hard enough this time of year. and like i said before, this one will not sit for any long period of time. i bought it to drive and enjoy so if i were to tinker with it, it would have been 2025 by the time it would be done (and thats just installing the air ride... )...

      put your pacifier back in you big bearded baby!!! the blue one has been on hold due to waiting around for the machine shop for a few pieces to continue with the front end of the car. they finally got the pieces but just at the same time as mike got commissioned to do a few big projects for sowo. he knows i'm in no huge rush so the car is sitting for a minute.. but not permanently... after sowo the updates will get flowing again...

      take care,

      Nash my favorite part of reading your build threads are
      1)you so laid back approach on the whole scene and cars /projects reminds me of myself but aka im BROKE....hehehee
      2)That i can dream and live some of my dreams through watching your builds hahahahaha.
      3)who gives a shiiiiiiiat when the Blue Monstah will be done its gonna get there at some point no need in rushing peeeeeerfection...plus the magnatude of that build is so different in terms of fab/build and parts that are not just on the shelf...compared to this is almost like a lego machine to eurowise and the crew drop it in and fill in the blanks...

      Definitely looking forward to this white car too.


      You said you painted under the hood Atlas white..is that the current body color or are you changing it up?

      absolutely amazing shop jeremy!!! I plan on doing a cross country road trip in the near future in one of the bunnies and definitely would love to swing by and check your shop out in person one day if that would be ok...

      so let's talk tranni's....

      called peter of the www.thescirocco.com and put an order in for an 02a peloquin. i had bought one from him years ago when building the first version of the "nashty rabbit" and he was very cool, so figured he'd be the best place to get one for this project. Must say for those without an LSD, you have no clue what you are missing... one of the best mods in my opinion. anyway, put the order in and unfortunately, it came in later than expected. poo happens, but peter was very upfront with the situation and i even got a call from gary peloquin himself.

      if that isn't customer service, i don't know what is... i wish more companies were like this...



      i also hit up the guys up at BFI and i bought there stage 1 clutch/flywheel kit... big thanks guys..





      cams went in....



      few more odds and ins got done, but will get more updates soon.... dedline is right around the corner...

      as usual, thanks mike for putting up with my constant harrassment, you no you're my favorite punk! and thanks again to all the guys at eurowise...

      take care,
      nash

      I guess I have been out of the loop for a minute. I had no idea what was going on with this one. As far as I knew, you were just driving it. Guess not

      jake, I WILL definitely be doing a road trip and I WILL be making it up to the PNW! there are so many people i've spoken with over the years that live up there that i'd love to finally get to meet many of you in person......



      so....... when the guys at eurowise get going, they fricken move... getting much done so here goes...

      it's officical. the motor is finally in.... they got the peloquin installed, cleaned and painted the trani, and got it all bolted up and the lump is in...







      disregard aux water pump, its coming out... not sure what mike was thinking...

      next up, fueling....

      a walbro 255 inline fuel pump was paired up with a bmw inline filter. mike knows me very well and clean and simple is what i like. i hate unnecessary connections and mike took that into account when designing all this...

      so they minimized the amount of clamps as possible for cleaner and more reliable install. you can see they have a fitting on the filter and pump all the way up to the motor. hard lines custom bent from filter to the pump as well. hard lines from from rear to bottom of the car and then braided line from bottom to the motor so you only see black hose up by the motor... here again, clean and simple...










      and a pic i liked....



      take care,
      nash

      Take the southern route and drive up the coast. Spend some time in SoCal on your way. I got a couch you can crash on (or an air mattress if you prefer).

      I'm really digging the fuel pump/filter setup.



      Do you have to convert to AN fittings on the fuel line to make that work?
      It looks like it would be well worth it, though, no fuel restriction there!
