update

Thank you for asking John

A few welding projects next.

The seat brackets are cut out, they are modified and need to be re-welded into a lower position.

Inboard seat belt harness brackets

Also adding the stronger rear stab bar brackets by Wevo.

Finish the fire wall off where the front oil tank intrudes into the pass side foot box.

Complete the sunroof delete thingy

Sand the entire car down to bare metal, finish truing of glass bumpers, then off to the powder coater and to paint after that.

So yea there is still some work left, but I'm making progress

We are at about the same point. I put in my seatbelt brackets last week, I can snap a pic tomorrow. I essentially welded in 4 tabs so the harnesses are in double shear.

I wonder how much weight you save from going from power to manual windows. I kept mine in because of my roll cage. I didn't want to do plexi sliders.

weights

I was thinking the same, When I get the little piece for hand crank to window regulator I will weight them against the power assembly.

Fantastic work. I'm surprised the Shaw IROC nose req'd that much work but the rear bumper was almost a perfect fit?

welding

I'm not bashing anyone Its just a personal thing. MA Shaw is good stuff.
The front bumper was not symmetrical to my car. I prefer tight gaps around the signal lights, which we will fill. The wheel well arch and angles from the front and back are not flowing with the body lines. On the rear bumper we extended the lip underneath the tail light housing which will fill that gap between the gasket material and tail light/bumper. Again truing up the wheel well arches and the view from the rear with the flow of the body.
I expected this with fiberglass and the hard work will be worth it, I hope

Still a tonne of work left to make them look good.
