:::The Fluid Flossman M - Build Journal :::
Cheers everyone,

Having relocated to London I have been slightly inactive for a minute not having much to contribute being out of reach of my car…I will be around consistently now and will be sharing the journey of my ground up build with all of you guys.

As most of you do, I believe our cars should be built and not bought…having said that I loved my cars look but thought it time to move forward and progress to something completely different.

I have removed virtually every mod previously on the car and will be replenishing them with different options…I figure since the build will be so in depth, I should touch on every aspect available for a build and spare no dime on the finished product as once its complete I plan on leaving it as is and beginning a new build.

Up to now the car has been a show car, which has been great however I would like to take it in a slightly different direction. The car will be built more for track than show, however I would like it to be show quality…Naked floor pans will be shaved and paint matched, shaved engine bay, proper paint and leather work on interior panels, smaller wheels but still with great fitment, proper cage and seat delete paneling and things of this sort…I think mixing the 2 worlds if done properly is a win/win for everyone.
I will update this thread as frequently as possible with new pictures and progress as more mods arrive and the work is progressed. I am open to suggestions and feedback whether negative or positive along the way so feel free to chime in whenever…I am glad to be present, thanks in advance for following if you choose to. Feedback is always appreciated.
