Hmmm... so what's your current weight? At least you have a hard top! I'll be watching for perfection when I see builds start like this!

So what happened to the na project? And what will you be doing with your red nb?

I'm so confused lol.

The NA is up for sale, the red nb is going to be my daily/track car and this shell is my long term project. In the end it will be a designated track car and built accordingly.

This will be badass.
So you decided against making the na the track car and will just keep both nb's?

One of my next purchases is going to be a welder. Once I get it, come on down and show me how to use it.

Yep, that's a 99 shell. I've lost interest in the locost as time has gone by. The NA is complete and running great. It will be up for sale by the end of next week along with my old daily driver.

Nothing to update as of yet. This is still in the planning stages at this point. I've got a few ideas that I've been wanting to try and they will most likely find a place in this car. I hope to have this completed by the end of end of 2012, give or take 2 months. I will say that there's going to be a V8 in it, it will be light and it must be fast.
