That is really nice you really did a awesome job restoring it. Interior looks bad ass.

i think i'm the first guy to hack the 93-96 dash to put the 97-01 gauge cluster cowl on there.

heh, who says it cant be done. hmph!!

good on you, thats quite the transformation. you need a legit aluminum hood and a lip and your car would be complete because you already have the go covered. by the way f4 door aspen white ftw!!!!!

yeah, the front lips don't come around easy, neither are they cheap. i'm also looking for a coupe wing at the moment. gotta love aspen white!!

the turbo is an IHI VF11 off of a legacy turbo. i had plans for a twin setup but it never worked out. plus i wouldve spent more on it.

as for the mouldings, i just put aluminum body tape on the holes, sanded them down smooth w/400 grit sandpaper, and then applied some bondo to give it strength. and yes you'd have to re-paint it. bye-bye nasty looking molding strip.

heres my first GC back in 2000. i also had some exterior bits and was going to do a swap in 2003. i had to sell it though because i had good chunk of debt at the time.

Awesome buildup dude. Kinda looks like mine... only better.

How was it getting parts shipped to Hawaii? Do you know where one might have to look to get info on shipping a car there (from the continental US)?
