Thanks man!

so today I ordered a pair of 17 inch kirkeys, the covers for them, the floor mounts and the mounts to weld the back to the cage, a pair of g-force black cam lock 5 point harnesses, stroud 430 chute, stroud chute cable, driver window net, a new oil pan assembly, and some 6an ptfe line and fittings to make my own high pressure power steering line.

hot an update from Jose, turbo is currently being built and should ship out in a few days

should be all I need to take the car to the fab shop!!! getting excited!!!

the car goes in 2 days to the fab shop. will be sure to snag some pics when I'm there. the shop doing the work is bdk performance out of Cleveland Ohio.

to anyone looking to make their own hi pressure power steering line. I used an earls 16mmx1.5 to 6an fitting on the pump, a 18mmx1.5 to 6an on the rack, a straight 6an fitting off the pump, a 45 degree fitting off the rack, and less than a foot of 6an ptfe. much cleaner look imo... will post a pic up later.

still want to pull the carpet/ sound deadening before I go... that will be tomorrows project

got the chute mount today! super impressed with the quality. we will see about fitment. I also plan to have it welded in as well.

ordered a turbo guard Maxx screen and a thermal zone t6 turbo blanket. will most likely wrap the downpipe to help with temps.

got some more parts in!

Griffin dual pass radiator it's 22x19x3. 9 inches narrower width wise than stock.

spal 16.5" 2000cfm fan, hopefully I don't have any issues keeping it cool.

coolant overflow tank, sunmit racing push/pull battery killswitch

the thermal zone blanket came in, nice piece for the money. that's about it for now. will update again when I get pics of the car!

he's just started the cage, we went over some of the minor details. since I won't be running a back seat he's going to x bar the main hoop.

also stated he has to remove the windshield to get the bars into the dash to keep them as close to the a pillars as possible. also said there's a good possibility it might Crack when pulled( which I've read is pretty common) and if it does it will be buying the 3/16" optic armor windshield to save some more weight plus it's about the same price as glass.

Still waiting to set up a date for fitting me for the seat mounting. I'm definitely getting impatient! lol but I know it's going to be awesome when it's done

after further discussion... we opted to lose the heat, radio and factory dash all together. ordered a racepak style fiberglass dash from vfn. since i will be running a racepak dash, this made the most sense. the dash weighs 4lbs and he's going to remove just about everything under the dash.

hoping to get this pig down to 3500lbs with me in it! it weighed 4300 with me in it with the blower/4l80 on factory wheels

here's a few pics he's sent me. I've received a few videos showing the windshield out of the car. the main hoop is in.

the lead time on the dash was more than he wanted to wait so for now we will be using a factory gutted dash
