Holy weight reduction! What car are those nice Regamasters on? More win in one of the nicest built TA cars around. Shep FTW, such good service product and turnaround!

p.s. I noticed the 9 in the trunk. Way to keep it real for my old state of residence, I know how it is out there. Glock?

Great thread nice ride kl. In one pic it looks like a VERY sweet early 911 in the back round gotta love that.
One suggestion, tell that stick in 3rd pic too either loose the hat or roll the brim. First thought was Forrest Gump's brother but he dosen't have one.

Where did you get that hook that you attached to the crash beam? I'm been looking for one that looks like that

A guy named Eric on this forum (eficker I think)???


With the help from my dad tonight I got the dash in/mounted. It turned out kick ***. Only 4 screws hold the top part on (easy to pull of and access wire etc in minimal time).
I got most of the electronics hooked up as well. Interior is about 90% done I need to mount fire bottle and a few odds and ends.

Mini update: Well I ordered up some new replacement pistons for the Brembos from Girodisc (my old ones were trashed). I really wanted to ****** up the Essex AP racing kit but money wont allow at the moment. So the Brembos will have fresh pistons and seals. I also called up Carbotech for a fresh set of XP20's up front. I am currently running XP-12's I am anxious to try the new compound.
