Formed the front and rear fenders to match the flare in the new fenders. About 90% at this point. Just needs a final touch up for sanding and prep before paint.
One of the more rarest Japanese seat on the market inside of an American car? Say whaaat. A buddy of mine gave me a set of free sparco seat brackets for the build so this could be an option. I might want something more comfortable and luxurious. Either this, s2k seats, or c6 seats.
Sparco Racing Gas door relocation
Since my quarter panel was completely shaved and cleaned up. I decided to put it into my fixed roof. 2
I used a 4" circular saw and cut apart my roof. Then just drilled and installed this for right now. Fab work for actual fuel use will be coming soon. The tank is right under this location so all I have to do is cut 2 holes into my chassis, clean it up, plumb it, and secure everything.
The biggest issue with this is fumes and safety precautions in the cabin so I will be brainstorming ways to make it absolutely odorless.
NSX GT Side Mirrors installed
After talking with some of the guys over at ffcars.com, I came to a conclusion to do a celica headlight front end. I think its a clean overall updated look to the c5 and gives it a crazy unknown appearance to it. I am also deleting the body line on top of the oem c5 hood to make it completely smooth with a slight dip.
Cut the fender tab and relocated it closer to the fender line.
I can definitely pull this off, but I will have to create some new body lines on the hood and front bumper to have it match precisely.
Laid down carbon fiber to add more structural integrity over regular fiberglass. Should help withstand against the higher demands of driving at top speeds.
Overall shot of what the car looks like. I am currently measuring out wheel and tire sizing. My ideal fit would be a 18x12 in the front with a stretched 305 and a 18x13.5 in the back with a 325 stretch. No tubs since its a complete waste of cash when you have widebody and lower offsets.
I put grandsport z06 wheels in the front and they are SUNK. Will probably be ordering a custom set of Forgestar F14's since we are a direct dealer with them and they make the best wheels for the price.
Still debating on my sizing. 18s or 19s'
18s for functionality or 19's for bad *** factor
