Also, I didn't mention this before, but they have installed a fuel cell up where the standard fuel tank would be (behind the aluminum panel), so I get to keep the trunk space! Pretty cool by Doug and the boys! Not the biggest tank (13 gallons, if my memory is correct), but it can be filled through the filler cap and I'm not likely to take long trips.

Yeah, a few hiccups and changes in direction slowed things down. Over two years since I made the deposit. Repainted twice since you saw it. New Weber internals, fuel lines and intake manifold. But, the way it is coming together, I'm very pleased. Worth the wait, definitely!!!

Think twice about a fuel cell in a road car.Most do not want fuel with additives added ie petrol pump stuff, and dont like fuel just lying in them for long periods.ie winter.They delaminate.Check with the supplier first.
Your car looks great.

Really coming along quite nicely. How is the weather where you are? Is your plan to try to finish it over the winter?

I'll try to get up there soon, on a nice day for some outside pics. Hopefully it will be complete before snow is on the ground!

Thanks, Ross! Your car looks great, too! Beautiful job, hope you sell lots and lots. Love the red in your line-up. What red did you base it on?

BTW, I plan to track mine, but won't race it (at least not for awhile). I really want to hear those Webers howl!!!

The owner has a red Ferrari and wanted his more or less the same, so its a Hi Tech mix but based on a Rossa Corsa red. White rims will really set it off.
Just found a set of webers for mine ( ex Walt Hayne R mustang I`m told) so will also be joining you on the calibration forums!
Thanks for the wishes. So do I.!!

Default Some pics from John...

John was kind enough to take some updated pictures today which I thought I'd share. Between the two sets of wheels, I REALLY like the black. Gonna go for the menacing look...

Excellent choice. My pick too.

I like the vintage look of aged magnesium.
