    I just picked up a empty shell that was in better shape than my old one. My old one there was a bunch of electrical stuff that could have been better. It was pretty much a hackjob since highschool. Now, this is a chance to do everything better. My old shell went to the scrapyard.

    Here are some progress pics of the paint process. I attached them in my other thread. I figured I would post them here as well.

    Here is some more pics of progress. I put studs in the block for the oil pan. I was battling a leak the threads seamed weak. I just left bolts for around the turbo drain for ease of installation. I also installed a 3g shifter. I am still working on the wiring a bit. Not to good at electrical. I installed some volk suspension and sway bars. I did the brembo upgrade that I moved over to this car. I started working on the firewall. I also installed struts for the hood. Very cheap and easy mod to do. Makes it look much cleaner. I also did the aerocatch hood pins as well. I installed the volk subframe bushings as well. All the suspension has prothane bushings to. Just didnt get many pics of the install. Did the battery relocation and installed the kill switch.

    After I tightened the bolts half of them were on the edge to stripping. 2 were stripped right next to each other. I was fighting a oil leak there because the previous owner of the pan bend the lip. So I figured studs would allow more clamping force. I had to helicoil some as well. But the studs were a great thing. I read some posts about it being hard to install a pan but I didnt think so.

    Got the fuse box installed. Power steering reservoir and trans cooler mounted. Mounted stuff on the firewall.

    Got the fuel pump installed and had to use a spacer with gaskets to prevent the pump from hitting the bottom of the tank.

    Im sure you seen this thread.
    https://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/aerocatch-install.474685/

    But I made a cardboard template. I also used the radiator bracket support holes to thread in the hood pin. The issue I had was the pins had to be at a angle. So I had to encourage them into the right angle. You can use a dab of paint, anitseize, toothpaste or whatever you choose to put on top of the pin to see where it hits in the bottom of the hood. I like using the rad bracket holes because then you dont have to drill a extra hole. Plus you dont need to put a nut on the bottom to lock it in. It just made most sense given there symmetrical as well. Make sure you do your best to drill the holes even. If you dont the bracket wont fit right. The hardest part for me, was cutting the skeleton on the bottom of the hood. I hope this helps.

    A "BIG" help, thanks. I hadn't seen the thread so I appreciate it! :thumb:
    I don't think my CF hood has those supports to cut out, I will need to get it out of the box and look.

    I dont have any pics. But I went through all the hastle of getting my auto setup with my 3g shifter, valve body, and large tranny cooler. Got it ready just in time for the shootout. I was pumped. On my 4th run, the auto trans is toast. Drained the oil, found metal shavings, pulled the pan, found chunks of metal. The when In drive in clanks loud and feels like something is going to fall off.

    So over the last 2 days. I have converted my auto to a manual. I threw in my old manual trans, installed the reserviour and clutch line. And drove it home today. A day and a half to do a full auto to manual seems to be a record for me.
