good work! Tried to skim through so sorry if I missed it, but what brand and size widebody is this?
This is the 60mm 22B kit from ABW. But honestly it isn't the best out there, there were lots of imperfections :/
Here are some notable defects:
  • Side skirts are too short by a 1/2 inch
  • front fenders are way too tall and stick out much higher than the hood, and they're also too short...
  • On the front bumper the bar above the grille is sagging
The rest of the kit was OK but those points were pretty disappointing considering the price of the kit.

I'm having fun too. My body guy is making me go elsewhere half way in the project for some unfortunate reasons
Body work ugh. A friend of mine is getting the same 22B kit installed on his GC8, originally he was quoted 6K in labor, now seeing the poor quality of the kit they just quoted him twice the original amount... :eek: At this point I'm just glad I'm doing it myself

Got the roof skin out last week, I'm getting rid of the sunroof and replacing it with the roof panel off of my other 94' GC8 (white) which doesn't have a massive hole in it.

I wish I could go carbon fiber at this point, but those are crazy expensive 😱 I'm seriously considering making my own CF roof skin

Haven't updated this thread in a while, but good things have been happening lately!
I took delivery of my new engine along with tons of other cool parts. The video of the unboxing is available here: Unboxing video

I've started cleaning the shell to prepare for stitch welding and the roll cage installation. The sound deadening stuff they put on every goddamn panel is a real pain to get off 🤬
Anyways, the shell now looks a lot cleaner:




Next, I started fiddling with the cage. Still need to figure out the final height of the main hoop, but the first tubes are kinda fitted:



Main focus now is getting the cage fitted and tacked into place ✌
