I bought the car for $34 CDN.

Engine and suspension $26K

Wheels $9k

Paint, parts, stereo, CF work...about $30k

About $100k all in......I must say.....sometimes I have to reflect that is only $20k from a ZR1....

Ya, but the ZR1 doesn't have a back seat......at least that's what I keep telling myself.

OMG, what build. Amazing combination of colors and CF. This was obviously a very well thought out process... I can't wait to see this car in person... And I also have to say, that's an awfully nice winter beater as well...

Great Job...

I will be going to CF2....

Car is finally going to get some final paint work down tomorrow. Going with a singular strip on hood, roof and trunk.

Hopefully no more then a week for putting it back together. Sorry. No knew pics because frankly there is not much new to show.

Some new pictures...getting closer....

painted rear tail light trim. Also painted the fog lights pods to be gloss.

Also...a LOT of preparation UNDER the Seibon hood to get it to look like stock and then painted.

SO this is the stock trunk with an MPD1 spoiler blended in and CF layered. A LOT of work to get this end result....a LOT....of work.

The glass went back in today...tinted off course. Wet sanded the hood and roof. Polishing to follow in the next day or two. Need to sand the trunk and then polish and paint the stripe.

Interior starts going back together tomorrow. Clear coating the custom kevlar boxes for the stereo in the next day or two.

Installed some flow master mufflers today.

hoping to have it displayed at the Vancouver Auto show on March 29th.

However, having trouble getting the steering wheel customized just the way i want.
