    Ok....summers gone, back to work.

    Coilover adapters to fit the lexus rear lower control arm:





    First coat of blue stuff! Finally! Not looking forward to sanding most of it off.



    Wheel tubs started:



    Figuring out where to mount the fuel cell:



    Once I'm happy with all the body and structural aspects it's moving to Independent Speed Shop to let Bill wire, plumb and make it run.

    I'm stoked to see more progress on this, one of the coolest builds I've looked at on here.

    Did a bit of sanding to see what its gonna look like:



    Trunk done other than where the coilover mounts go...waiting for my DOM to come in:



    Ewwwwww, guess I have to build new rockers, and make them out of tube to make a perimeter frame now.



    The seat of choice...Pro2000.

    Out with the old rusty sh!t:





    In with the new structural sh!t:

    2x4 .120 wall, it will become my outer frame rail and something really solid to attach a cage too.

    I loathe it too, but I have a bit of a desire to really learn how to do it well. There is so much to it, I have a LONG ways to go to figure it out... Looking at pro metal shapers work is so inspiring.
