pics of the progress on the change to the car....
 
here are some pics right after i dealt with customs and picked up a significant portion of the parts.

the parts i ordered from tischer arrived today by ups freight on 4/6. i also was able to pick up stuff i ordered from germany.

it took a vehicle this size to haul it all safely.

i went by the bodyshop today to take a look at the progress on the car. my full leather recaro sportster cs seats with mounting hardware arrived on friday.

lol. i had seen one with different upholstery before. i had to, of course, sit in one before ordering.

i am beyond impressed with them.

it was amazingly difficult to find a set in full leather. recaro na said it would be 5/17 before they had any in. all those are/were spoken for. my inside recaro source told me 2-3 months was realistic for getting a pair of them. but thank you, sony pictures, for canceling part of a large order. i was able to track a pair down after hours and hours of calling my "connections" as well as other recaro dealers.

i can't wait to have them installed....heck, i can't wait for the car to be done.

i was hoping they would be worth the trouble i went through to get them.
oh wait, just seeing them today made it worth it. :)

i can't wait for this freakin' car to be done, but there is just so much stuff left to do :(

we are working on some ideas of how to change up the look in the engine bay (no, not turbo :)) as well. just ignore how freakin' dirty it looks right now.

hey, it is not a cf trunk. that is an oem csl bootlid, which is composite.

i don't remember the exact price since i had that, the oem csl roof, and the oem csl roof rails shipped all together. i can look it up and send you pricing.
