So that's the build up to now, but like any project car, it's not done yet! Here's what I'm working on now
I deleted the spoiler from my decklid because I like the clean look, BUT It would be advantageous to have a spoiler for racing. I acquired another decklid to use a spoiler with so I can swap back and forth depending on what I'm doing.
This thing is ROUGH. It's got some fiberglass damage and some rust on the metal. I think I can clean it up and use it, but it will take some work
Everything on this was trash. It will need a whole new set of hardware
I managed to get the old spoiler off, but the studs were rusted solid
I had to use a grinder to cut the heads off of the studs, and I managed to zap it with the grinder a bit, but nothing a little bondo can't fix
Here's another upcoming thing--
That's right! I finally got my hands on the Arraut slalom suspension. This is the new design that uses 88 stock brakes, but still uses rear bearing for easy parts sourcing
Here's the basic mock up. I'm still waiting on springs and bearings, which are supposed to ship this week
I painted the cradle black instead of the silver/gray powder coat
And that's it for now. Once I get the rest of the parts in I'll install the suspension. Hopefully the installation goes smoothly.
