^^^it looks awesome already and it's not even done yet...
LOL, yeah it was tongue in cheek as I know people read things more than post, me includedAhem - there are others following with interest...
I quite like it without the mesh inserts in the side panels, it’s a shame the expansion tank isn’t more aesthetically pleasing, although I suspect it might be on your radar now (despite already giving it attention earlier in the thread!)
Re-reading some earlier bits for reference with my own car/ project, what was involved with carpet removal and you mentioned small tweaks defining how the car handles, was this specifically just component freshness and alignment or is there anything else I should look at? My rack/ suspension appears fine and it’s very recently had alignment reset (last week) - so I a more getting a feel for it again now and wondering if there is anything else to look at. I agree that even compromised it felt fine, I guess due to the intrinsic abilities of the set up/ weight placement/tyre grip etc, but the alignment has certainly made a noticeable difference too.
Like you, and I suspect a few others, I am keen to get the car fit as possible and tweak around the edges/ keep it that way, happy to do what I can on it too. There will doubtlessly be many other avid readers that just don’t post. Keep it up and thank you for all so far!
Thanks. Yes the firewall mounts up in the right position. You have to put fittings in both the firewall and the chassis rails to mount it as there is nothing there to do it in the stock shellCool project, I like it!
I was actually thinking about attempting fitting the gen 2 brace, never thought it would be that compatible. Thanks for sharing this with us, would you like to confirm that the rear fittings against the firewall also match up against the wall? Firewall needs tapping or any other modifications ?
