Thought I'd throw up a pic as the shift **** just came in- going high class with my interior.

M-edition wooden e-brake handle, as well as a Nardi Prestige shift ****.



They should compliment my vintage Momo wheel nicely I think.

They should go well with it, I would strip the e-brake lever and stain it a darker color to get it closer to the wheel and ****.

The ebrake matches the wheel pretty good, it's the **** that is a bit darker. I'll figure something out.

Scanned the magazine at work:







Hopefully it's decent enough to read.

Made some backwards progress in the form of taking more parts off the car today.

Turns out there was a mix up with the company I ordered the bushings from, and I was only sent the rear portion of the ES bushings. I got it straightened out, but the front kit won't be here until next week sometime. So, since I couldn't finish the control arms, I went another direction with my time today.

I separated the turbo housings and yanked the ex. manifold and downpipe. I'm bringing all the exhaust components to get ceramic coated, and the turbo compressor housing is getting powder coated in the same bronze as the valve cover. That VHT spray paint didn't work out at all.

I also separated the rear diff, and will be getting the diff housing powder coated in a chrome type color. I figured it was the only thing under the car that wasn't powder coated, and since it's a pretty beefy rear end might as well make it shine!

Word.

Here are some pictures from the photoshoot for Modified. All the good shots were taken by Martin Astromowicz (Astroboy), while the crappy shots were taken by me.

We did the photoshoot at Fort Adams, in Newport, RI. I got permission to go out on the grounds for the shoot.

Enjoy!

Thanks guys! Plan is to have the car ready to go by the end of this month. As soon as I get the front control arm bushings and everything back from coating I'll be cornerweighting the car and then the fun starts.
