    Haven’t personally seen a car that was a better candidate for new carpet. Bleach stain and all. Evidently caring for your automobile is a lost art IMG_7295.JPG

    That’s where I differ from you and most other people. I almost never listen to the stereo in these cars. I don’t like being distracted from the sounds of turbo and exhaust. I’ll leave a sound upgrade to the next owner lol

    ^^^ this. I enjoy the sound of 700+ ponies coming out of my bassani exhaust. No better soundtrack.

    Are you going to replace the heater core and evaporator?

    everything's still there and I'll be leaving it as far as the behind the dash components, but I'll be keeping them deleted in the bay since one of my main goals is to maximize space/cleanliness for show purposes. With that said everything will stay with the car

    I love my FR500s. They compliment the Mineral Grey.

    I’ll use the barrels of the Forgelines to show off the main color I went with. The majority of the engine bay was done in the same finish. It’s a matte bronze metallic that I really felt would compliment the subtle darker hues of the mineral grey paint. IMO blacks or silvers are a no go with this color but that’s just me. Here’s a look at the color in full sun, full shade and indoors. I absolutely love how it turned out. Took me forever to decide on this color IMG_7380.JPG IMG_7379.JPG IMG_7382.JPG

    That’s gonna look real good against the bronze/goldish hue of the mineral gray.

    Ran up to the paint shop to check progress and held one of the cold side pipes against the mineral grey engine bay. I’m in love with the contrast. I’m sure it will have it’s fair share of people who dislike it when it’s all together but I don’t see myself being one of them. You can almost see a mineral grey hue in the pipe IMG_7383.JPG

    Wheel assembly about to begin. Fresh polished lips from Forgeline and centers/barrels back from powder. Carbon fiber center caps to match the hood. Every detail count! IMG_7396.JPG IMG_7397.JPG IMG_7398.JPG
