    Well this thread may slow down a bit over the next few weeks in regards to getting parts installed in the car. I dropped the car off at the paint shop today with the intention of just having a few things corrected. That quickly escalated into having the entire car re-sprayed. Blending the color from panel to panel just leaves too much room for the new to stand out from the old. If this wasn’t a total restoration I would just leave the current paint alone but for the caliber I intend this car to be when complete, the choice was hard but obvious...bite the massive financial bullet and ensure the entire car is show ready. The same shop (Precision Autohaus) That did the DSG car will be tasked with this one. They are the best of the best but not cheap by any means. I have a great relationship with them so thankfully I’m not paying the “off the street price tag” of $7k! Bye bye budget. Image1562173254.774225.jpg Image1562173263.670650.jpg

    Party’s just getting started gentlemen. Brand new interior on order today as well. And, I got my hands on the intake I was after. That will be the focal point of the bay. You’ll see pics after I get it back from powder

    One thing is for sure...this bout to be a totally brand new and likely 1000hp Saleen/Cobra. Wait for it

    These should help it handle better and put the power to the tires. Along with coil overs and bilsteins on all corners of course IMG_7231.JPG

    Came home to new mass back carpet.
    Doing an all true black interior again. A little different seat than the last car but same concept. Loved how that turned out IMG_7235.JPG
