One more small update, just got off the phone with 9K racing and also ordered a Carbon Fiber Seibon Trunk as well, so the gc8 will be lighter then a cactus.

Haha, this thread is great and if that is your GF even better.

Someone did a hawkeye front end on a GC, was that your inspiration? Great work so far, looking forward to seeing more.

My only fear is the front end will have the flared semi squared fender..and the rear is smooth and rounded with no flare... hard to say whether it will flow and look right... can't wait to see it done
