    Lol, the cash is why it's taking so long! I only spend extra cash on the car and with 4 kids at home that doesn't come in large sums often.

    The car is back on the ground and clearances are great, even with the 4" exhaust! 061621.jpg 061622.jpg 061625.jpg 061626.jpg 061627.jpg

    The latest progress has all of the core structure fully welded. Intercooler piping is complete. New VC welded up. Need to finish the fuel lines. Build Coolant lines. Paint the core support and cages changes. Finish the harness and then it's time to fire the beast! 071501.jpg 071502.jpg 071503.jpg 071504.jpg 071505.jpg 071506.jpg 071507.jpg 071509.jpg 071510.jpg

    Nice work. The exhaust system came out clean with plenty of clearance.How do you like that eastwood tig welder? I was thinking about picking one up for the small fabrication projects my car needs.

    Has worked great for everything so far. It's definitely no production machine but it lays good beads. Had to use 220v for the IC mounts.

    All of the tube fab work is now complete. Everything still needs primed and painted but it's getting closer!

    I love the trimmed front bumper, the piece with the lines that is normally black that is gone. Is it aftermarket or did you do it yourself?

    Also, what a monster of a car, mad respect for the time and work you've put into it. I love to see that.

    Just curious. This may have been mentioned before, but things change. What is your updated ultimate goal from this venture?

    With aspirations like owning a Vette , do you also aspire to be old and wrinkly ? LOL kidding , you can’t knock the performance value ..

    Good luck with the 8s.

    It was a joke. If I were to actually get rid of it, it would only be replaced by a FD RX7, Supra, R34 or an Evo IX.

    Pssh C5 is where it's at LOL, I'm loving your build, not sure if I could pull the trigger on selling it though after spending the money on a car to get it to where you want it to be :)

    It would definitely take at least $25k for me to let it go. That's a number not likely to be reached unless the car is being exported. And I'm 100% okay with that.
