Installed AKG Motorsports rear shock reinforcements, it's the little things that count.

Heated up the garage so I could put a bead of RTV around the sunroof filler.

Saw you've got your front subframe out for reinforcement. While it's out, are you also going to take this opportunity to install an oil pan baffle, address the oil pump (wire the nut, or replace with VAC or GSR 4 bolt unit) and maybe take a peak at your con rod bearings? I recently finished up those jobs... my thinking was I really didn't want to pull the bottom apart twice, so did as much as I could while it was apart.

Yes installing a VAC Motorsports baffle and pump shaft kit. Have not looked at bearings, good idea.

Flushed a quart of ATE using Bav Auto pressure brake bleeder, super easy! Also cleaned and greased the solid brake guide pins! The "To Do List" is getting shorter! Just 2 weeks until Gateway.

Spent the entire day working on the #becauseracecar. Installed oil pump with VAC Motorsport shaft upgrade and VAC oil pan baffle welded in by Eric at EFAB Motorsports. Installed front subframe with AKG Motorsport reinforcements also welded in by Eric. New front control arms and AKG Motorsport delrin FCAB inserts. Also got back the ECU from Epic Motorsport. The only thing left to do is install front bumper and graphics before next weekends event at Gateway with NASA.

Stopped by EFAB Motorsports yesterday to have Eric give my build a look over. Discovered I had put the new guibo in wrong and told me to put 2nd chassis plate back in under the exhaust rubber mounts. Completed work on the car last night. Everything else checked out fine. Now the car is ready for this weekend at Gateway!

It was commented on Faceback that the second chassis plate will not fit if using the resonator.

Looking Good Bill! Have fun and good luck with the car @ Gateway!

I got my brakes finished, and painted the roll bar over the weekend. With a little luck, I should be ready for the track by this time next week.

Bill, have you noticed that the rubber mounts under the center support are collapsing due to the weight and the Pipe is resting on the support itself instead of being supported on the rubber? Mine seem not to be able to hold the weight.

Second question, why did EFAB recommend putting the second chassis plate back on?

Thanks
Scott

Pipe is close but not touching the plates. Plate is pushing the rubber mounts up. Said plates increase chassis stiffness.
