so I kind of forgot about this thread and let it get behind..so here is a pretty big update

after gettin screwed around by companies trying to get my wiring done, i cut my losses and wired the car myself



a couple days later and this happened...

Untitled from Mike Butcher on Vimeo.



I have since hooked everything up and had the car driving under it's own power!

as you can see in these pictures, I also decided that I was done with the green paint job, and so the prep work began





picked up a nardi wheel and some autometer gauges



updated the engine a little bit



wired in an safc2 and my wideband



and picked up some bumpers courtesy of boxer2






this brings us up to date on the car...tonight it's getting driven into a trailer and brought straight to the paint booth to be sprayed oem burgandrot (burgandy red metallic).

Here's a little teaser before I pick up the car tomorrow...

it looks like there are scratches on the hood, but it's just dust from the blanket





will update as it's put back together
