Plan was to run this season...
I doubt it'll be finished end of summer.

Hopefully in a week it will "come home" and we can start on the body work.
Give/take 2 months on that..

After all body work is done i'll take it to my garage and start doing the wiring and install the drivetrain, engine... etc..
2 months on that if all goes smooth.

Then find a tuner... break in period..
Maybe by September it will be ready ?

I still havent decided on the color !!!

I. Am. In. Love. With. Everything. You've. Done.

CF door cards was going to be my next project. May I ask how much they set you back, with shipping to the US?

Dont really remember the exact number but less than $400 for the cards and foot rests.
