Very nice work. Keep us in the loop on the progress.

What kind of lights are those tucked up in the the area where the blinkers were?

Those are some unique parts... the community needs things like that. Go into production, small scale, there is a market.

I would buy the vent system. I just cut a smallish hole in my bumper but if I could get a system like that for a decent price I would have no problem cutting an even bigger hole.

Awesome work. When I try making anything like that it looks like a 5 year old did it.

I would, but every exhaust is a little different....and I don't have the facilities to do so at the moment ( I had to call in some favors)

Will do....they're just small retangular hallogens that the kid who owned the car before me put in there. I'm going to retrofit in some HID projectors in there and make some plexiglass lenses to enclose the opening. Not a top priority but it will quickly become one the more I drive at night.

I would, but I dont think my company would feel the same way. They just don't share the passion....

It sounds pretty good, a little quiet at idle, but awsome driving. I want to swap out my cat now that I passed emissions. Plan on just putting in straight pipe and running the res and muffler.

Me too...except when I have the right equipment, I knew I get up everyday for work for a reason!

Ya $40 on ebay, you check out the link I posted? The seller was DawnMsn if your interested in picking up some.... As for the fan, I do only run a pusher but I never even have to turn it on. Drove it like 50 miles yesterday without it....then again it was only like 60 degrees out. The giant hole in front of the radiator helps a little, lol!

Just made up a few more pieces that I had been meaning to get done. One to cover the hole that goes from the cowl to the cabin and then a temporary heat shield for the exhaust until I can make a permanent one (Used a piece of steel I had laying around which was'nt long enough to go along side of the turbo)...

Well the headlights came in today, so I figured I would snap some pics. Prolly going to be a week or so before I dive into this project since its going to require a good amount of time / effort to pull it off right without being ghetto and since its supposed to be so nice for the next few days up here.....anyways on to the pics

Dude.. You're the man with sheet metal!!

Suggestion for next project!!!



Make something like that and sell em for 100$ a pop.. you'll make a KILLING!!! I would personally be interested in maybe looking into multiple pieces to cover the entire under carriage..
