Intense. Not sure about the need, but have you thought about having a second diff mount off the other side, a la E30LS1:

Yessir! It's in the plans, just not much of a need at the moment with my wopping 190hp (maybe?) lol. That is however, why I tied in the right side of the frame as well, to accommodate the additional diff mount in the future.

Nothing new on the fenders. Haven't had the time to work at them but hoping to do that soon. Jamie has the resin and fiberglass, so just need to find the time!

Well, Jamie came over today and we managed to get the the fenders all glassed up!

First got the tin foil on so the fiberglass can be removed after:



Then applied the first sheet of glass:



And then applied the resin:





Going to be a bit of work cutting/finishing, but the big job is done!
