I should be making some for sell but it will not be in the near future. I have to finish the side skirts - plugs, molds and parts. When I get that done I will have to do my interior - Mr.Mikes Seats and Door panels. When my car is complete I will have time to make more parts. I will keep posting my progress. I have a brother and a friend or two who may want to help, we'll see what happens.

Those are the wheels and tires I plan to use for the street. SportMax wheels 17x7 front and 17x8 rear, Kumo ECSTA MX tires 225/45ZR17 front 255/40ZR17 Rear I will buy a second set with lighter racing wheels and compition tires (same sizes) for autocrossing.

That's cool thanks. I have wanted a choptop but I decided against it. I want that extra head room for when I wear a helmet while autocrossing. We'll have to photochop it again after the paint shop is done.
Yeah that looks real good! Wish I could retain the trim but I only got a 84 nose to work with (which doesnt line up that nice with the civic's) so I skipped the trim and went a different route. So again: nice work!

Yup. I bought a civic chin spoiler (it was ABS plastic), made a mold of it and a fiberglass part and some extra pieces for the extensions and molded it to the nose....that was some work but you already have the right shape to start with.
No major update yet. I went to the body shop today. The rear bumper has been done and the front is almost finished. They work on the insurance collision repair cars mostly. They can take their time on my car, I do not depend on it for transportation. He did say they should be painting the stripes next week.
Wow, that Lotus Chrome Orange is a sexy color indeed! I love seeing stuff like this come together.
It's not the Lotus color. Looks about the same. It's a custom mix Dupont Paint. Can't wait to get it out in the light. My side skirts are still plugs I need to make the molds and parts. Time to heat up the Driveway Shelter this week end.
