Those rear fenders really turned out nice. They're subtle, not all bubbled out GT2 style.

Will it be a race between you, me, and Wiebrand to see who can get their GL together first?

Glad you like the seats Mikey. Look at the wires and make sure I didn't mess up and get you heated seats. That would suck

Mike,
Great to see the update.
You seem to have made a lot of progress...Those seats look very cool
I am looking forward to seeing the next set of pictures.

Yeti, Thanks. I've put a lot of work into the fenders. I know they're not perfect at all, but I've tried my best, and they please me so far. The fronts are about as close as the rears, maybe closer. I'm sure you and Wiebrand are a lot more detailed than me. I would love to be more detailed, but I don't have the time or the money to get caught up on the very minor details. All I want is a really nice show/driver.

No_H2O, I love the seats. I wouldn't mind heated seats, but I'll be alright with out them. I don't believe they're heated though.

Yellow73, now that I can copy pictures, I'll be updating more. I'm a few weeks behind on my updates. The seats are really comfy.

Oasis and Wrench, you two are too kind. I'm just trying my best. I know it won't be perfect. Like so perfect I can't even find a flaw.

Rob, Thanks. I believe they're out of a '04 Acura RSX. We can thank our club seat collector (No_h20) for those.

No_H2O called me last night, I told him I would have been happy with celica seats, but I'm glad they're not. That would look funny all of us having celica seats.

Some very long over due updates and pictures.

Updates, Lanner finished my front brakes. They're in the mail. I bought a set of fiberglass bumpers.

My new fiber glass bumpers. The hood is about the color I want for my Ghia. It's not the hood for the car, just a donor that I havn't cut up yet. It's a nice color, I'm just not happy with it.

This fender is VERY close.

This fender is the closer of the two rear.

A shot in profile, the body line on the top is good but not great. I'm trying to work on it.

It's hard to see the grill with the bumper on the car.

Another shot of the bumper cover up.


It looks to be shaping up to a nice water cooled sleeper. I still need to do more work on it, but with 1 fender down and the roof very close. It's coming along.

Comments?

Dave, I hope to have it ready in a few months.

Oasis, you and me both.

Wrench, I'm going to keep putting as much time as I can into it. I have a good momentum going and good motivation.

Thanks guys.
