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.





thank goodness i acquired it. ignore the rieger brochure in the last pic





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.

some quick pics:












that is it for now. lots of things to do....we will just have to wait to see how it all turns out. i anticipate the car will be in the shop for a few more weeks.

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.
