    Small update. IDK how but I was able to pick up these perfect condition window trims for the spyder. It’s the dam little things. Also replacing these showed me how crappy this paint job really is. But that an issue for another time.

    Really lovn this build please keep it up, I have a vert and to me the vert just has the sexiest lines cant beat it. I am building two right now and i have a color and concept that I think is going to be one of a kind. I am very excited, you are very right the little things make a big appearance difference especially on the 2g verts.

    Thanks for the kind words. I wish I can do more to the car but the way the world is right now can't do much since it's in a storage unit LOLl. I'll try my hardest though.

    Loving the build man, you're doing a great job with everything and attention to detail!

    I just picked up a AWD Auto converted Spyder myself and fixing to start up a build thread. Glad to see they're still getting some love!

    Quick update. The fortune auto coilovers are installed. These are the gen 7. Install wasn’t too bad since I had recently installed my lowering springs before moving it to storage. this is as low as i want to go. The car might get a little lower as the springs settle.

    New part alert for suspension. Got volk rear lower control arms. I’ll slap these on as soon as I get my rear sway bars as they’re not in the best shape.

    I also got pictures of the fusible link I installed for the battery relocation. This is from an evo x available on Maperformance. I just made a quick bracket and put it over my engine mount. That space look kind of empty so it filled it out quite nice.

    I wrapped the hot side with Dei for added protection and insulation.
