Well after taking a few months off, I finally pulled my car out of the trailer. First on the list was pulling the old getrag tranny, replacing the rear main seal, and installing a ZF with a new driveshaft. Oh, an I also picked up a new go-fast bit:

Sorry for crappy pics... It's an APR GTC-200 wing . It's a bit small for the car but with some custom risers to bring it up to the roofline, and mounting it as far back as possible it should work pretty well!

Got a little bit done this weekend between picking up an ice-race car yesterday and the snowx today.

The risers I got with the wing aren't tall enough, so I made my own!

That's the plan. Once the wing is sorted, I'll be following Chris' footsteps and be fabricating a front splitter.

Finally had some more time this weekend to work on the car again. I finished making the wing uprights as well as the mounting brackets.

Well I'm out if town for the next few days but I was able to finish mounting the wing! I just need to go buy some bolts and it will be all set. Really happy with how it turned out- sitting just below the roofline and a couple inches behind the rear bumper

It's been a slow week and I've been lazy. But I did get a bit done today. I fabricated a new rad support bracket (been held on with wire since the crash).

Also, the crazy carpets have returned!



Took off the tin and started making up some new ducting. Blocked off the lower bumper and ducted the two kidney grills to the bottom of the rad:

Mocked up the splitter tonight with the new M3 bumper. Starting with a 5" overhang. I figure it's easier to trim it back then add some!

Got my new rear springs!

800 lb/in and 5.5" long. Should be nice and stiff!



Thanks to Carl at Perry Performance!

Got some work done on the splitter today. It's now securely mounted to the bumper! Just have to wire the front edge to the turnbuckles, weld a bracket to support the back, and make it pretty!
