    It looks beautiful and I can tell that you are paying attention to detail. One question, why did you opt out of the DSE sub-frame connectors ?

    Nada. Still waiting on front valance. Also found out the front brakes are for the wrong spindle and having to swap them out so he's working on other projects til we get everything sorted out.

    Ii was seriously considering doing an LS7 swap last week. Had all the parts priced and ready to buy, but I talked myself out of it. Told myself I gotta stop somewhere. Cause then I'd start modding it and it would never end. .

    You need to totally flip the script. It would blow the collective mind of the collector car market if you buy that LS7 and then ...









    trade it for a 327 and a powerglide!




    I even know a guy that will throw in an all original Rochester double jet!!

    Got the rear bumper and front valance on. That rear bumper looks awesome! Love the way it turned out. Now it's getting it all to fit.





    The front bumper is a fiberglass flush mount. Anyone know of a place that could wrap it in carbon? Not a vinyl wrap but put an actual layer of carbon fiber on it.

    might be worth a phone call to Speed Shield in Addison

    I know they do wraps but not sure about actual carbon fiber

    Ok I'll give them a call. I'm tempted to do it myself. I've done fiberglass but never carbon fiber.

    Nothing groundbreaking but made some progress. The aftermarket fender just weren't cutting it so I had to round up some original fenders. It was either buy NOS for around $4k or salvage some used ones. Had to make some repairs.

    The fitment is just bad. OEM makes aligning everything a lot easier.

    It’s crazy how light it is. You can lift the hood with a finger. I almost flung it off the stand the first time I went to pick it up not expecting it to be so light. I just moved my steel hood last week and had forgotten how heavy that one is.

    Full custom interior and some minor electrical; power windows, custom seats, dash, door panels, stereo, console, etc. I have another guy going to do that that just does interiors.

    If I didn’t have so much other stuff keeping me busy, I wouldn’t be so patient. . But I almost try to not think about it.

    at this point you probably could have just bought the lambo though
