still pretty much waiting on everything to get here. I threw the suspention together so i could tow it...sslloowwllyyy 3/4 mile down the rd to get the chassis leg pulled out. It popped right out no prob. also threw some paint on the fender. Looks good from far anyway lol. Thankfully the wife isnt pickey about the looks as long as it runs good.

Time spent vs quality of end result. Mine look like crap up close cause there is no bodyfill.

Another great car in the works, awesome.

Bob, if you havent heard of them, you should check out Opera Tuning in Japan. They do some stuff that is right up your alley.

Opera 350Z
Opera S2000
Opera Integra Type R

I have heard of them and i try to follow their philosophy of light and reliable. Some of the bracing and doubling up they do i cant make sense in my head, my engineer friend dont believe in it either.

Its hard to know when to say, "yeah that's going to be enough" when you do a build like this. But i rather do that on the chassis as i feel you get the most bang, and it cheaper than building engines lol

Got a little bit more done in the brake and rear axle section

Mounted the Prop valve...perfectly straight... It should actually make it a litle easier to get the in line in...yeah thats why its like that.



Also cut out the old trailing arm bushings and put in the new urathane ones. should tighten up the rear nicely.



Finally decided how to do the rear lines to make the rear lines easy to bend and everything pretty simple. You can also see the Whiteline pahnard bar behind the axle.



Mounted the TEE at the bottom of the strut brace and you can see the flex line fitting poking up on the far right of the floor. I need to add a washer to make the clip hold it in tighter but it will be good.
