Those front plates are very interesting. Do the lateral arms between the two cylindrical components translate the shock and reduce stress on the strut tower? Also will you be connecting the said towers with a brace?

Dont know about the shock&stress part.. but they are stiffer than your regular flat plates.

Yes... the plan is to have a welded front strut brace which is also welded to the firewall.

Mmm Custom Cages T45 cage...

Can't run a carbon roof in any North American rally series, but that's no big deal... lovely build, I'm a little jealous.

Where on the east coast are you? I'd love to come check out the build.

Yeah.. not planning to run any rallies. (seems like an expensive sport)

2nd shipment of carbon finally arrived.
It feels paper thin. Somewhat too thin.





And a late Cyber Monday order finally arrived.

Remski,

Let me know the fitment on those carbon fiber door cards. Was looking at those, the floor boards etc as well. Did you get them from Rally Tech?

This is the site I got it from.
Cars 4 You Custom - Carbon Fibre Producer - S2000&WRC Cars Replica

Doorcards do feel like they are just too thin.
That might be just me used to the old heavy ones.

But yes.. they are light..

I'll try to test fit it after new years.

As for the foot rest..
One set got fitted into my friend's 06 shell.

I can take some pics once the car is painted and they are mounted.
