^That car is sold now, but right before Rudy sold it he filled in all the holes and deleted the abs so it looked even better than that!

Dude, that's 24k gold plated! He also did his mugen center caps, mugen valve cover, subframe, mugen wing mounts, etc. This kid was a straight beast and seriously dipped it in real gold.

I did want to seam weld it but havent really learned to weld thin plate like that that well yet (I do everything myself because shops allways f$#k stuff up for me and charge the earth) and wanted to get it all back together so I could get it going.

May still rip the motor out again later and seam weld if the chassis moves too much on the track. I figure in an accident tho Ill end up bending more than the car if its all welded up and that might not be a good thing.

Heres some more pics from the engine bay shave..

A very thin layer of filler is going over the welded plates then will be sanded back to make sure its nice and flat and smooth. Everything has either been plated or seam welded

Then a special primer will go on hopefully tomorrow some time. More pics when that happens.

I was told that there were around 90 holes which had to be welded or plated. The whole inside of the dash including the air conditioner boxes had to come out to make sure that it didnt catch fire from the sparks.

its a great look, but imo over here in the UK, you would be laughed out the garage if you asked for that to be done and they would bend you over each time you walked in for a progress. Plus it would take them forever to do, I've heard of cars sitting in garages for months just to get a kit fitted and painted! unless you owned the garage it would be fine

Keep up the progress and good luck. Get your dash flocked while its out ;0)

Ricey the only reason why ive done this is beacuse the engine is out and theres not much down time. I think it will look great with the hidden loom. Like a race car, euro styles..

They have only been on it for one week and it should be ready next week. Thats when you know youve got the right people doing the job for you...Professionals

Have a look at my thread, flocked dash is so yesterday... ull be pleasantly suprised..

Tino, that's a perfect job. That's exactly how mine looked in the begining stages so they're doing it right. Can't wait to see it finished because you shaved 3 extra holes on the firewall that I forgot.

I'm curious, how much did that cost you over there? I know what it cost here in the US, and it would be humorous to compare. lol

Where are you going to put your tanks at now that it's all shaved?

Tino!!! I love the tanks too, but you can't put them back in the same spots! That's the whole point of the shaved/tucked bay, to make the motor look bare and like it's floating. No tanks on those beautiful smoothed fender wells, or else im coming to Austrailia to kick your ass!

Haha D. Nah those tanks are staying they cost me an absolute fortune plus they look unreal. Those tanks give that floating look and I think it won't detract from the engine bay.
