Thank you. Nothing really to update. I brought the rear bumper home to test fit (in primer) as we narrowed the corners. Took some tweaking, but it's fitting fine.

I also completed the tubular core support, so I dropped those parts off to the paint shop. I'm on him right now to get the rest of the body parts back so I can get all the steetmetal installed and lined up. Not a whole lot major I can do till I get the rest of the body parts back.

Just a few upgrades this winter. I'm installed the Holcomb light weight racing steering column. A couple new gauges/shift lights. I may get a new cowl hood and take
some weight off the front of the car. Then the usual ( Belt re-cert 100) (Cage re-cert 200) New slicks (450). Damn this shit gets expensive.

Do you have voltage reducers to your components?

You mean because of the 16 volts?

If so, not step down needed on any of the components.

Thanks we are using the stack,7531& the K&R wiring because you showed how nice they are! They should pay you for advertising!

Worked this morning in the garage correcting an issue that came up.

The seat covers came this week, so I installed them, sat in the car and put my helmet on. The headroom was not what I was looking for. It was a bit tight and once I put padding on the upper bars it was gonna get worse. Also, the seat position vs steering wheel location and gauge display location had the top of the steering wheel blocking my view of the top half of the tach. This bothered me from day one, but everything was pretty much mounted where it needed to go.

Well, this morning I decided to lower the seats by cutting down the seat brackets. A couple hours worth of work allowed me to drop the seats 1" which is about all I could get out of them.

Everything back in place and the headroom is much improved, and gauge display visibility is noticeably improved as well. Not perfect, but better and I think I can live with it now.

Will have to take the seat brackets for blasting and then have them powder coated again.

^^ I know that one. My wife, who works at/in the shop will say something like: "Ya know, I can already see you don't like how thats turning out. you might as well fix it now before you just have to cut it out later. You aren't going to sleep or be happy until thats perfect". I see you are the same way about your work.
Actually, saw it in you the first day

Thanks Paul. Good to know I'm not the only anal one out there.

Thought I would share this one pic quick to show how the interior colors will work out.



Rear plastic interior panels will be reinstalled and are black. Carpet will be black as well as the 5 point harness. The window net is silver as it was the only color webbing they had in stock when I was doing the fabrication phase. The door panels will be carbon fiber and the dash will be painted black.

Just trying to have a little contrast in the interior as it was all black prior.
