The center console gauges should be done soon too. They will look just like the factory 4 pack, but have custom Boost, A/F, Fuel Pressure and Tranny Temp guts in there... The computers log all data so we can play back all of the sensors and see what the car was doing during any given run.

After that it is just finish installing the hood, grille and front splitter, splash on a little "special" paint and good to go.

Haven't heard any explosions in the dyno room, so that is a good thing.
That's a good thing, LOL! I was looking at more of the pics' again the other day and there was a lot of on the key board when I was done, lol. I can't wait to see the "special" paint

You will definitely deserve a patients award for this. Half of C5 is pulling our hair out just to see it. Can't imagine what it would be like to be waiting to drive it!

I think we should've filmed a reality TV show on your build.

I just want you to assure us all that this car will be ready for the fest. If I'm dragging my 'ol beater all the way to Arizona, I want to see the holy grail.

My pieces are together with yours as you and I must be on same schedule. My car is basically finished up and waiting on GForce and then getting measured for the carbon driveshaft as well. Its a relief to know we are finally getting to the home stretch. Hope to be driving with you sooner than later.
