      The badgeless grille is two OEM grilles that I spliced together. All the factory mounting provisions are there. I had to drill the bumper for the guide pins, if you want to call them that.

      What exactly is microsuade? I've never heard of it but it has me interested. I applaud your work man.

      The bumper is quite good. Fitment is bang on, and all the lines are crisp. Its a little work to cut the holes to mount everything, but it's to be expected with a replica product like this.

      Microfiber fabric that replicates the texture of suede. True suede is an animal product, this is just a replication of that using modern textiles. Most people who use "suede" on interior parts are using this.

      Really great work so far!
      I love seeing fellow Canucks on the 'tex.
      Definitely watching this!

      Great explanation about the micro suede too. Many people may know it more by the brand name Alcantara?

      Short update, pics later in the week. Its been slow going, I'm busy as all hell with work. Car finally has all the bodywork FINISHED!!! One coat of primer on the shell. All thats left to prep are the fenders, and front/rear bumpers. All my parts are in, all that is left to order are wheels and tires, and whatever small misc stuff that I need to reassemble the car. I have a show that my company is sponsoring on August 18th, and that is now the deadline for me to have this car finished and back together. For those wondering why its taking so long, its the small things I guess. Things like stripping all the factory sound deadener out of the rain tray, putting newer, better product in there, then painting over all that with a sound damping spray (looks like truck bed liner).

      For suspension, I decided that ultimo's were the best option in my budget. I would love to do bags in the near future, so I didn't want to spend a small fortune on parts that may only be on the car for a year anyhow. Coils are in, and taken apart. Working on sandblasting the springs today, some really wicked powdercoat is on its way and should be here mid week. Springs will be powdercoated a metallic blue, with a satin clear overtop.

      I think this was the color I chose:


      For those that didn't see further up in the thread, car will be painted stock R32 blue (LB5R) with the roof, front grille, rear bumper insert, and mirror bottoms painted a black with metallic blue color. The idea is to get as close as I can with the shades of blue so that nothing looks out of place.

      For wheels, I decided on the avant garde M310's in machined face/black. I feel bad for dragging this build on so long, I just want to drive the thing already! Also have a line on a complete turbo upgrade from an audi TT (225hp). Still trying to figure out the logistics of all that. Might wait until the winter, so I can pull and build the motor, shave and paint the bay and get that stuff all buttoned up. So much for a quick project.


      Pics to follow in a few days
      Sean.

      I should also post this quick. This area of the car sucked. I learned SO much while fixing it, I even hand made a shrinking tip for my welder and got very good at using it over the course of this battle. On this side of the car, not counting the roof, I would estimate that I have 25 hours of time. The wheel arch was absolutely the hardest part to get shaped, it was made from ****ty cracked body filler when I got the car. I ground it all out, worked the metal back out, and finished it with much less filler than was on there before. I'll let the pics show the rest.

      Headliner looks good! I am doing mine for the second time in a corduroy looking fabric. Where did you find the microsuede? If you don't mind me asking.

      I buy mine from one of my suppliers, but it should be the same from any online fabric dealer.

      Started to powdercoat tonight

      people like you, who are not only able to do this but actually carry this stuff out to completion... are like gods to me. i have no idea how to do any of this, not even removing the parts, let alone rebuilding it back up.
