I've had quite a bit of free time over the past few weeks and managed to get a good amount done on the car.

Finished painting the bay and started the assembly process


Painted the front subframe, lower control arms and motor mounts with black por15 and put the front suspension on the car




Took the intake off to refinish it, really wasnt a fan of the black. Started to sand it and was taking way too long so i stripped it with aircraft stripper and painted with silver engine enamel.



Scored a mint rhd dash on ebay for a great price


and today I re sealed the oil pan and dropped the motor in.

Little past due update:
Stripped all the silver paint in the interior and repainted the cage gloss white and wanted something pretty durable for the floor so I used some truck bed liner, doesnt look amazing but should hold up pretty well.








Then I started with the fun part, wiring. Im redoing every wire in the car from upper and lower engine harness to full chassis harness with just the essentials. Ive only finished the lower engine harness and nearly done the upper. Starting with the chassis harness soon.

Ya it has been a long process, but it has been nice being able to make progress on the car without heating the garage. One question i have for the chassis harness is the two wires coming from the plug on the alternator, i know one is just a constant 12v and the other in factory wiring goes to the cluster, where im not using anything from the cluster i know that wire needs to go somewhere in order for the alternator to start charging but cant seem to find out where.

My chassis harness doesn't plug into the alternator, the engine harness does.

Ya, mine is the same way but wire connects to the chassis harness through the lower engine harness. Anyways, I have finished a bit more of the wiring and was able to make my switch panel. I finished the upper engine harness and Im currently in the middle of doing all the chassis wiring, a lot more work and time than I anticipated.

I was able to take the bracket off the oem fuse box and the relay holders clipped in perfectly, this was much easier than making a new box/panel.


I also ordered some rocker switches to put in the hvac slot in the radio trim, these will be acc, ign, blower/heater, fans, fuel pump, and the last is a momentary on for the starter.

Here's an update from where I left off.
The chassis harness is completed and somehow it all works.

Got some speedhut gauges and made a cluster setup using the oem one, the innovate wideband is just there for the time being util i get another speedhut gauge.




Next was the interior, made this heater setup work for just defrost for rainy days and inspection purposes.




Also made some rear toe arms since that was all i was missing, bought some heim joints and threaded rod at a local race shop and made the u joint bracket.


And here is how it currently sits, gp sports rep kit waiting to be installed, fitment is terrible but thats what i get for cheaping out, just waiting until i get a sticker to put it on. Also took the 50mm rear overs off and cut some oem quarters out of a friends totaled shell, im just not a fan of the bubbly overs look.
