I have Recaro seats in mine and like the snugness the bolsters offer. I will try to take some photos for you. Wasn't there something else that I was suppose to take photos of as well?

Chris, you will have so send me some pics when you get a chance...


I will try to get some updated pics up shortly. Its mostly done. lots of odds and ends though.

Randy,

How have you routed the exhaust? Any chance of a pic? Also have you considered adding an intercooler?

An intercooler would reduce any heat stresses on the engine if you dont increase the fuel

Looking good.
Transmission cover?? is that a D90 tunnel I see grafted to a series bulkhead or a IIA shelf grafted to a D90 bulkhead? It's very well done either way

You do some incredible work Randy, thanks for sharing with the group. I only wish I were that talented, not to mention wishing I could even find the time try. I'm living vicariously through your work, keep sharing! LOL!
