So Savini made a mistake which they off course are happy to fix and fortunately they caught it before shipping to me but here is a idea. (this wheel just has the accent line of the spoke painted...I want the whole interior of the spoke painted.

So things are finally moving along now although we have had some problems.

Hood: The Siebon hood is a pretty good hood for the money. That being said, it has a resin coating (as they all do) and the superior option is epoxy. In addition I want the ZR1 window and it needs a little more stability. So....we have epoxied the hood, we will re-wrap it in carbon, and then put the window in. They are doing that today.

Trunk: I had wanted the Siebon ST trunk but it is on back-order forever and I cannot wait. I bought an MPD spoiler. We will fiberglass the spoiler onto the stock trunk, and wrap the whole trunk in carbon to get a 'one piece' look.

Wheels: the wheels from Savini are on the way after way having had the inside of the spokes painted.

Calipers: I have elected to get the calipers painted yellow

Roof: yesterday the builder had a great idea that we have decided to do. Wrap the roof in carbon (using epoxy of course) and rather then have exposed CF rally stripes as originally intended....have carbon hood, roof and trunk with YELLOW rally stripes. I have approved that decision as of about 10 mins ago. I sure hope it looks good.

Ground affects: we managed to get some CF gfx from VIS Racing through Gary's customs and they look very good. My builder is impressed with the quality. We will season them a little and then re-clear a couple of times but basically they fit very well and get two thumbs up.

Interior: 60% of the interior parts have been wrapped in yellow kevlar, epoxied and are now being trimmed. This is hand layed and very time consuming BUT...it is being done 'right'. That being said, the builder (Iggy - board member) is a little anxious about the tight corners of the dash bezel and the steering wheel.

Leather: This has been the one troubling area. The local leather / interior guy (or his supplier) has let us down. After 5 weeks he has not been able to source an appropriate yellow leather and we have now pulled the plug on him. I'll now be trying Geraldo of DSV Customs to see what he can do.

Paint: This was also a big decision that I do not know how it will end up and that is to use a tinted clear coat to get a colour a little closer to Bumblebee. Iggy says it will look "Butterscotch". That was a big decision as now that car has to be taken apart, windows and trim removed, door jamb's, engine bay, get the showstopper parts painted, the wheels and calipers will need to be done. yikes. I must be insane and this budget is spinning away from me.

This decision will also cause problems with respect to getting the right coloured leather dye.

Badging: going to get the badges replaced with CF cut pieces.

Our 'soft' deadline is for an F-body cruise of Aug 28th but that is probably unlikely....Hard deadline is for a show on Labour day weekend.

So here are the wheels....and a picture of the current state of the car. You will see the CF GFX on the ground as well as the MPD spolier. They are sanding the rook to lay CF on it. I had to have the windshield and reaer glass removed. Apparantly there is a VERY high likelyhood that the windshield breaks upon removal AND you cannot buy the rubber pieces seperately so the removal process had to be done VERY carefully and patiently.

I also forgot to mention I'm getting the door handles shaved.


And Yes......he is sanding the roof......i wonder why

For paint....we are going to tint the clear with a mandarin orange colour that should give a "butterscotch" colour to the car...similar to the Transformers car.

We will be doing all the car..including under hood BUT...not the wheels or calipers. I'm not sure I'm convinced on that decision but Iggy is reassuring that it will be fine and he has my confidence.

I have also elected to get the interior done later then sooner given there is no way to get done by the show season. I have been in touch with DSV Customs, from here on the board, for a special steering wheel and seat combination but he sys it will take 4 -5 weeks.

On Monday they will cut the hole in the hood for the window, chemically strip the paint off the roof (it is HARD paint, sanding it was taking FOREVER), start to laminate the spoiler to the trunk and get the remaining interior pieces covered in yellow kevlar.

I must say...I keep going out to the garage and looking at those wheels....Brings a great big grin to my face every time.

Wow. This is awesome. The member Journal area is so fun to keep track of because we get to see cars come together like this. Me? I'm just piddling compared to you and Speedster.

Still fun though.

Will this car end up at C5Fest II?

DEFINATELY if it is on the West Coast...possibly into the middle of the continent.....

If it on the East Coast......that is a long drive from Vancouver BC. I'll have to think about it.

I did not get to see the car the last couple of days but progress is coming.

Roof has been stripped and the CF layed down today. Also, the MPD spoiler has been glued to the stock trunk and molded to create one piece. Laying the CF on the trunk tomorrow.

I have to try and get in touch with DSV Customs again on the interior options.
