The build quality on this is phenomenal. Ugh. I really need to up my game!

(actually spending some time on my to-be-subaru-powered 1303 wouldn't be a terrible idea either...)

Big kudos!!
Big thanks to both of you. I have looked up to your car for a long time Wally, and also Dave's many projects. I was looking how long I have been on the forum yesterday and its been since 2007 which is almost as long as Ive owned the car . I always dreamed of being able to build the car how I wanted with inspiration from other people on this forum and its been a blast learning and bringing it to fruition.

Forrest,

Can I get a link to your photobucket or where you've been hosting photos? They aren't showing up for me in the thread

Nothing much to share besides some pictures. I am working on a rear spoiler design, trying to tie in the aggressive look of the front kamei spoiler into the rear. At one point I built a duckbill for the rear decklid but aesthetically i think its a bit much, so I have designed something for the rear window area shaped out of aluminum. I will most likely paint this satin black like some of the other components/front spoiler.





About 17 years ago I took this picture in Gig Harbor Washington where I grew up. I had it printed and its lived in my house/apartments ever since. I wanted to redo the photo in current day-

nice craftmanship! and different than other designs of roof spoilers. I like it.
Are you going to color code it or leave it as is?
