It really is that easy.
I got as far as trimming the aluminum **** but I get fed up messing with the seat belts and I couldn't figure out how to drill holes for the roll bars rear mounts, the drill I have is too big to fit between where the rear of the bar sits and the aluminum deck above it. I guess this means I should have trimmed more of the deck above the rear mounts...
But am I supposed to get into the rear wheel well to drill these holes? When I read the directions I thought it said getting into this area was only necessary if the car is ABS equipped

1. Your avatar. **** YEAH SLAYER

2. If you're talking about the holes next to the gas tank, I used a looooooong drill bit. If I remember correctly, I drilled a hole for reference from the top, the other 2 I drilled from the wheel well.

I was thought about the long drill bit, but I guess I'd have to get into the wheel well to put nuts on the bolts anyway.

Glad you like the avatar \m/

Everyone shouts Begi-s but here in tampa the fabrication shop are a plenty and there prices are super cheap. I can have a custom kit made, with top of the line materials and parts for under 3k (figuring a 600$ turbo) kit would include everything accept electronics.
Just search around your area and talk to some fabrication shops to get an idea for prices.
That being said if your certain that sub 250whp is enough for what you wana do, and you never see yourself going beyond that point then i guess begi is very hard to beat from a simplicity and reliability point of view.
