Open the hood, close the hood, open the hood, close the hood. Repeat as necessary.
Also middle radiator support beam has been removed alongside enlarged intercooler opening.


Time to start looking for a core.




Front headlights are fitted and aligned !!!

Slowly moving forward.

Mounted and aligned front bumper cover. Oh the constant flow of imperfections in this kit makes it really challenging to find alignment points.
Right side does NOT equal the left....





Custom aluminium lower bumper brackets. Those will also be used to hold the liner.
Trying really to remove as much weight as possible from the front, so aluminium whenever possible.





And a closer look.




Hard to see but this is front bumper beam with a support for where the grille would be.
Looking at it now.. it probably needs more holes......





Hand brake cable holes welded up in favor of hydraulic hand brake.




Door moulding holes welded and ground up with a help of spacers.




Left side door sill installed and moulding holes welded up as well.




... Testing some 22B pr0n...




... and the diet continues...
Door beams were removed.
This thing is becoming more and more fragile.







Last but not least...
a vintage BMW or Benz jack that just fits perfectly into the jack holes...
Perfect !!! Lightweight and small enough to find its place in the trunk.

Not a good day of work...
F-ed up few things....


That bumper support was way too heavy...
Now it looks more like it.



Time to cut some carbon fiber...


It almost fits... almost.

Gotta keep that engine safe.

Now.. back to work...
After breaking few drill bits.... back to door shaving...




Also managed to build a mockup intercooler...



It got mounted the same day !!!



Wanted to use an ETS one but seems too high and a bit too short.
