Most likely satin black. Green would just be too much green.

Is that real bronze metal sprayed?

Sorry for the lack of updates. Things have been moving very fast! I'd like post more from my phone, but it's hard to remember to hold the phone a certain way so the pics are not sideways :mad:

Anywho....

Looks amazing! Any details on the Sparco's that are in it? Assuming they are a new release?

I’ve seen the pics on the gram. Really love how this is coming out. Great taste! Can’t wait to see the finished product.

This is their soon to be released, QRT-V seat “Performance” version. Features the QRT Lightweight Technology, trimmed in Italian Leather and Alcantara and is also FIA homologated. They are about 15lbs wrapped. Also, my friends at Sleepes came up with a really nice mount for these so they actually sit at a nice height!

Looking good. Love the color and all the details.

After SEMA you should consider having your fabricator make some extensions for the rollbar in the engine bay. The sheetmetal in the seat area is pretty flimsy. It will be stiffer and stronger to carry the load through to the frame rails. The attached picture from an SCRS shows what I'm talking about.

I thought I was the only whacko doing color-coated headers :)

These babies are Cerakoted Gold

They are from Borla. They bought TWM a while back.

FACTS!

I saved my pennies for 3 years for a refreshed motor/trans...did all the work myself and positioned some strategic selling of parts to eek by affording the project.

That said, I am glad builds like this happen, they're the best of the best representation of what our cars can be. When I have the $cratch, I'll make it happen with mine.

Hopefully there are sponsors involved considering how the build is being used as a showcase. There's alway$ a way :)

Also, I LOVE how you retained the sugar scoops and didn't go with some ridiculous, out-of-place looking HID headlights

Right On!!

Flojo 10-31-2018 07:46 AM

Yes. I am jealous! The color. The tech. YES!

But what I don't understand... the level of atention and detail is high... why not all the way?!
e.g. I don't get it, that the old dented oillines were mounted.
As well why certain (detachable) parts (e.g. under the dash) were just sprayed over.
Don't tell me it was the money?
