Where are you from?

Yeah, but the holes and things were all welded. The bondo acts as a smoothing additive, not a filler.

be careful about how much body filler you use on the strut towers because it will flex and crack... looking good so far

Looks interesting so far dude. I'm definitely waiting to see how this works out. Glad you got rid of all the stupid S8IT like ABS, PS, and washer fluid. If only I could've convinced a certain someone to do that with their flipped mani... oh well. . But I think you should hurry and finish so I know what size snail to put on the mach.... *devil*

the only way to do a PROPER tuck is to run a wire in standalone like an autronic or motec. the stock harness can only be tucked so much. and having fuses in the fender, while it looks "good", what good is it if you blow a fuse?

function > form.

haha thx Ev! You will need a pretty big snail, I already told you.

Plus you gotta make up for all those other times I smoked you after school. Why don't you tell people on here about how I actually drive the car? To school, mall, going out, etc....

The fuse box will be fully functional in the fender. We will have it mounted and water proofed so that I can access it by pulling the fender liner back, or by taking off the wheel. No biggie, i've never blown a fuse ever.

I went with what could make me the most power and was easiest to tune, and that's Hydra v2.6

I'm sure it's going to look nice. D has a good eye for detail.

The "tucked" look of a real race prepped car is just a byproduct of not needing all that extra stuff. The only major caveat of D's build is removing the power steering. If this car is going on any track that isn't a straight line, it's going to need power steering.

Keep up the good work.

haha thanks Adrian. I had to dump alot of my own money in the car before I ever picked up a sponsor, so it's well deserved.

THX bro! I actually can still keep the powersteering and still make it look nice. We can re-locate it with a custom aluminum box and run braided power steering lines. I think I may keep it. I wish I lived in cali because I would delete the heater and **** as well haha.

You can't re-locate the power steering pump though... You can do whatever with the reservoir, It's the pump that sucks.

that only happens from driving the car... considering his car is still down, I would say it hasnt had a chance to crack yet, but as long as you do thin layers you will be fine

I know I know. You can hardly even see the pump, no worries. Plus it's on top of the engine. To me, the resovior bothers me more because I wanted both sides cleaned up and nothing over there.

I guess if you use cheap autozone body filler and that's ALL you use. Again this was all metal work and the body filler was applied very thin and just used to give it that smooth look.
