    Background:
    Bought the car after it had been used as a R&D car for a gsx. Things were mix-matched, shorted and broken. We saw it's potential and the price was right. Ant wanted to build a DSM so it was bought and delivered as a surprise. He had never built a car before so rather than buying a good car to modify, we bought a slightly modified car that needed help. Since buying the car it's had the motor and transmission rebuilt, new turbo, almost all sensors replaced and will be adding more gauges for him to watch and learn how the car operates in different driving techniques. He has already found the passion of working on cars, now his goal is to find nearby road course tracks and hone his racing skills.

    Had to borrow my parent's computer to get the images uploaded. I think my phone is simply incompatible. More pictures and more detail to come later, just wanted to get the profile started for now and add later.
