    The Business Coupe

    Coming along boys. Still need to plumb tranny lines, get a drive shaft made and put in and wire the car. Then she will be ready to fire. once that's done it will get the rest of the stuff buttoned up, and off to Lorenzos to build the exhaust. Be ready to drag that ass on a street near you very soon!

    Lol its actually kind of funny. If you look at his and then look at mine you can see the experience difference by far. Yes I don't think mine is to shabby but like I told him today. His bay looks like a 50 year old did it that has his mind set on exactly what he wants it to look like and mine looks like a 25 year old did it that some things weren't as important to have. I wanted it to look nice and clean, but did not want the "magazine show car" quality his bay has, as my clumsy ass will just drop tools on it anyway and then I would be pissed for scratching it. lol My main goal was to have a clean simple look that could take a lickin and keep on tickin while remaing mechanically sound and do it's job.

    I sure wish whoever threw together the setup in my car would of had 10% your guy's workmanship. Whoever did mine just didn't give a shit as long as the car started.. looks like wire spaghetti. Anxious for when the day(s) come that I have time to pull everything out and do it nice.

    I'm mad jealous of clean engine bays, I was spoiled my talon I bought from Colton.

    Everything is complete mechanically for the most part.. Going to start wiring her next Saturday and then just get the drive shaft made and put in, fill her with fluids and she will be ready to fire. In the mean time i got a fresh coat of Turtle put on her tonight lol.
