Shit just got real. Who's going to do that?

Also, the rust I see in your pics has me wondering if my car has rust in the same areas. Stop peeling back metal!

Jamie (Aero) and I are going to manufacture one ourselves, along with a hood, trunk, front splitter, and a wing.

Should be sweet

....


Anyways, since this is a build thread, let's get back to that.

I took next week off and the plan was to build the rollcage, but unfortunately our tubing is backordered and we won't get it until january.

That being said, there's still a lot I can do. I'll take the opportunity to:

-completely strip & clean the interior
-smooth out any sharp edges
-cut & test-fit the lexan windows
-re-do harness attachements to accomodate 6-pt belts

No no - finishing it. Right now it's just the roll bar and bracing.

Going to complete the front half, tie it to the front shock towers, and then also tie the rear section into the subframe.

Front will also have nascar bars and/or xbrace door bars
