    Final top coat done over the lizard skin to get it darker and protect it a little bit. The body is in primer but no sanding on it yet. Not until its ready for final paint and assembly. She is finally ready to go to a new temporary home where we can turn it into a car. Will be nice as I can help work a fair bit more on the mechanical side of things.

    You probably follow Langesshop? That's Chris the man doing basically 100% of the body and paint work

    Sound and heat insulation where it counts. Probably going to do a semi gloss black top coat for the underside of the car just to make sure none of the grey is visible.

    Engine bay/roll bar done in PPG GM black. Outer body is just sanded slick sand, still got some shine to her though even before primer

    Dry ice and vapor honing. We got a great local business here who does a hell of a job with that stuff.

    Metal work is pretty much done, bad dog frame rails are welded in as well just don't have photos of them at the moment.

    Was about $2200. I am sure I won`t regret it all when its done, but definitely an LS also fits much better, no issues with hood latches or the cross member.

    Progress on my insane VQ35HR 240Z project

    Upper radiator support changed to a bolt in style for much easier engine pulls and install. Moar slick sand, part of the battery tray removed...things are rolling along Also picked up a new daily last week to replace my Mazdaspeed 3 which I am now selling. 2018 Golf R, dark violet pearl, im digging the colour, very comfy...a little too comfy...and I know everyone here knows exactly what I mean..unlike many other online car forums

    Getting closer and closer to paint...still have to do one of the headlight buckets and fenders to match the finished side, bad dog rails, and fix that gnarly ass battery tray...but after that...shes pretty much ready to be sprayed.

    Fenders moved up and snip snip EDIT: Added photo of the inner edge, didn't want any sharp edges that could wreck a tire or a finger in some bizarre unforeseen incident.

    Thank you! Yeah we want this thing to be more corrector as opposed to less corrector
