Thanks - Giovannis was the best food I have had in a while...the location (north shore) was perfect, serene, and was all around one of my favorite times of the vacation.

May we take a vote?

My seat backs are CF - but may be painted to match the car. Trim is to be paint matched and roof painted.

Kevlar w/o horn

OR

CF w/ horn

Thoughts?

Epic build

Between carbon and Kevlar Id say it depends on the car color you choose

Thanks Drew

The color choices are up the air between 3 at the moment - Of all 3, both kevlar and cf would look good I just need to choose one now as the paint wont come for some months

I like the HPF cover with horn, but Kevlar wins IMO

I like the horn, I wish they would do it for me in kevlar but said the equipment wont work the horn from kevlar because of its thickness - the kevlar is also HPF - I requested one made special for me a while back and after finishing it they wound up mass producing - I am a bit afraid the horn will become frail after a while so thinking....Kevlar?

I do believe Kevlar it is, need to get it shipped out this week.

I am undecided on a few other mods so would appreciate input :

Macht Schnell floor mount brackets for my seats and side mounts...I like the static mounting (no need for a slider as I am the only one who will drive my car) - also gives more head room because there isnt much there being 6.2" with static seats.

at $500 per side they are a bit pricey for what you get...I feel it shouldnt be difficult to fabricate a set via machine shop if I just give the measurements which is option 1...Option 2, are there any static floor mounts similar to Macht Schnell's for a better price?

Why not go with VAC mounts?

I thought VAC only did side mounts?

Have you guys seen a rear diffuser similar to this? This one is a bit extreme..If a little "less big" and a lot "cleaner" it could be promising provided it served a purpose.





Edit : Much more refined :

Sorry for the delay, I have a batch of new photos to share with everyone and will get them posted up this evening once I return home.

Until then here is a quick tease...I installed the front camber plates and did a test fit of the old rear wheels and new front fenders...Whatcha' think, ready for the track?

Show more
