Looks fantastic!

Do you have "in progress pics" to share, too?

When will you be taking it to the racetrack next? Looks like you're in my neck of the woods

Very nice. Looks like a clean build. Could I get specs on the wheel/tire size if you don't mind? Thanks.

Thanks for sharing. Why did you remove the Teves ABS? Seems as if that OEM system would come in handy on a race car.

Looks awesome!

This car was probably a Milano Gold or Silver and didn't come with ABS.

Beautiful car, I really like the strut bar and the way it is integrated into the shock towers. The reinforcement to the castor rod mounts is very nice to.

I am guessing you went with coil overs up front due to all the reinforcement up front?

Does you strut bar tie into the firewall or the cage as well?

The wheels are ESM 001 15X8 +35 with 235/50/15 R888. I did do some fender work to make them fit right.

I've done about 8 track days with the car already mostly at Sonoma Raceway and a couple at Thunderhill Raceway that I put on.

The car started life as a Gold, I wanted a non sunroof car and I like non ABS cars.

The strut bar is tie into the firewall and yes the car has RSR coilovers.
