Yeah, that looks legit! Hard to imagine that some cars come with CF driveshafts from the factory.

Some cars cost more than some will see in their lifetime. Cray world
Ha so true! I'm working on an early 350z that has a factory carbon driveshaft right now. Luckily there are many fun cars that are still attainable, just got to put in the work sometimes.

Bought the grimmspeed coated heat shield since I forgot I haven’t been running a heat shield

Still working on 6 speed wiring and also took the center panel out to cut a hole for the mapdccd controller. Decided to spray paint the ebrake stuff black and also do paint touch up on the passenger floor.

Thanks all!

Another quick update. Finished adding the other three shocks. Bought one of those fancy STi carbon fiber tower braces, it will be here Monday from Japan. Removed the dust shields from the rear hubs. Front brakes are back from a fresh rebuild. Intercooler is back on.

Added clear bra to most of the roll bars, had to order some more. I used painters tape to test fit, I’d cut then test fit more until it looked good. Then peel, wet with soapy water.. move it around and

Ordered a carbon fiber trim piece to go around the shifter because I’ve always hated how the rubber looks warped. This is probably the best the interior has ever looked in racecar form haha.
