    Windshield shakes a bit at over 100mph up to 136mph/till now LOL .. 1piece Front end is solid.. I did my own hinges plus using 6xDzus fasteners. doors are solid, and windows on them are solid as well.. but once recon bit shaking at my drivers side.. Gotta use my big heater and bend/deflect glass edge at roof area, just where is my wndow frame/there is highest air pressure pushing window out..
    Was scared about rear end at Traps.. no clue what kind of pressure pushing rear hatch down/kinda a down force. with like 136mph seems my structure hold no prob..
    Rear hatch holds on 4x Dzeus fasterners as well.. and again its solid :)

    Are you planning on making a belly pan for the car?
    In case you don't know, a belly pan is a set of panels that is attached to the bottom of the car to make the underside more aerodynamic.

    I tip my hat on you sir! Car looks fantastic and I know how hard it is to wrench on the driveway with bad knees. Good job.

    After this awesome day had only one chance get my car back together w friends turbo.. basically its my old turbo from 2010 or so.. BW s366 w 0.91ar. Spent whole day after day job to put it on my car..on my ex manis..resoleved lotta issues. worked till 2am and went sleep.. next day after job in friday was able fire her up..no leaks at all..

    next was get towing car and trailer.. had to wait lotta hours.. after filling tank on towing car, that was like 6 pm we were able get the car to tune airfield. Darknes becoming at about 7:15.. had small amount of time get the turbo at least to 43psi of boost.
    W only hallman MBC and controling my single tial44 and mbc almost completely in she did only 41psi of boost falling down to like 39psi..then screwed completely IN..turbo pushed only 37psi falling to 33ish..and gets only worst..lower boost..
    Luckilly remembered that and unscrewed MBC two turns and she pushed back 41psi to 39PSI just before first run.
