And I accidently bought a P1 lip. Needs a little love but it should be fine. So which would you rather paint it to mach or paint it black? I've already decided so you guys won't be having any effect on my decision :)

Oh man.. nice pick up on that lip! I've wanted one for awhile. I hope you're paint-matching.

But either way, should look great!

Thanks, and sorry lol, I'm painting it black. Can't wait to see how it turns out :)

Took a closer look and did some sanding in my lunch break, it needs a little love but it should look good when I'm done with it. Too bad it's fiberglass tho... but who cares, it'll be fine :)

Filled in the biggest damages with some P40, doesn't look that good right now but it should look fine after I'm done with it. Doesn't really matter since I'll probably crack it on the first test drive lol :)

Well, did some more work the lip and attempted a test fit... and guess what, typical my luck... **** doesn't fit. It was too short on the ends, so it looks like I'm going to have to start doing some fiberglass work to make it fit properly. If I won't get it to fit right there is no way it's going on my bumper. Anyway, I'll post some pics of it



This is how well it lined up




This is after I cutted the bottoms out so I could make new ones that fit



I won't go into much details of how bad it fitted but I'll just post some pics

Thanks alot man, really appreciate the kind words :)

Anywho, time for an update, a long time ago hah...


Got my fuel filter, and it's tiny and actually rather rough but it was said to be okay for injected engines...



Also got my fuel rails but still waiting on the injectors to be able to make the brackets for them



Alternator bracket



Got it all welded up and installed




Started changing the fuel pump, but it turned out to be a long process due to some **** in my gas tank..... -.-







Finally got the crap mostly cleaned up





Also did some work on the fender liners







Got new tiressss, 205/40 and they look rather tiny for now lol





Some test fit with the 90° elbow on the fuel rails



Test fit of the fuel filter



Current bay pic



Took the spoiler off because I need to fasten it better. Here are some random pics

More progress more pics :)

My Black Ops injectors finally got here



My friend made some progress on the box







And I made a bracket for the coolant reservoir in the meantime, still need to clean it up abit



Sandblasted (glassblasted) a few things





Test fitting... still have to make brackets to hold it in place, we'll most likely be using the bolts on the gearbox/engine were the starter is and the other side too.



Got a better silicon hose for the inlet and it fits perfectly, doesn't even touch the manifold!



This is were we'll mount the ignition, fits perfect too. I can use the stock wires for the spark plugs and all




Hopefully we'll make some more progress today and this weekend :)

Looks fantastic dude, great progress. And thanks for taking so many pictures! I know it's a pain sometimes to stop and document it all but it makes for a much more interesting read :D

I've made some progress the past days, picture dump!

Got all the shiny stuff in







Then I made brackets for the filter box, the custom stuff isn't as pro any more because my friend doesn't have enough time to work on this with me any longer so I'm doing everything myself for now













And I also attempted to make brackets for the fuel rails but they always came out to high so the injectors are somewhat loose... Will be trying to get a guy at work to help me with them tomorrow







But I still mocked it to see how everything would fit and so on. Thinking of making a bracket for the ignition coil that holds it in the place pictured and that bracket would then be welded on the bracket for the box
