    You installed those flares over stock fenders without cutting them?

      I installed one side over the fenders to make sure the fit was right before cutting. They're cut now.

        Got these images from the seller today, he's getting ready to ship. Look at that dish. I'm trying to use Need for Speed to determine which colour to get them powder-coated in.

          dam, rose gold seems like the way to go.

              I really shouldn't look at other peoples build threads. Just makes me jealous of how clean your car is. So clean...

                I took pictures today. Probably the last ones with the current wheels. New rims are scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

                  Rims are in, tires get in tomorrow. Wheels will be on later this week and I'll post pics then.

                  In the meantime this weekend I did some engine bay cleanup. Relocated fuel regulator to where the charcoal canister was. New fuel lines put in. Heater core deleted and a new bypass line put in. A little bit of cable management and I've got a much cleaner engine bay. Also now the heater, ac core and blower are all pulled out from the dash.

                  Before:


                  After:


                  Next up I'll probably relocate the battery to the trunk and hide a better engine ground strap somewhere.

                      Got my hands on a sheet of perforated aluminum. Time to fabricate a new center console to house the switches. Something along these lines, but I can't find any existing pictures of exactly what I have in mind.




                      Heater / AC / Blower are deleted so I no longer have any vent controls. I can remove all of this.


                      The plan is to install bluetooth speakers in the far left and right air vents and wire them into the battery for charging. So I can just use my phone as my car stereo.

                        New center console is done it came out great.



                        Next up I need a new shift knob. Or possibly a new shifter entirely. Then a full cover instead of half cover.

                          Front suspension is now on lower springs. The front brakes are off the car and I'm rebuilding them soon.

                          It looks like stock suspension and regular ZG Flares are wide enough to support 10 inch wide wheels if you're okay with a little tire stretch. Personally this is exactly the look I was going for. I'm just glad it all came together as I really didn't have much reference and bought all the parts hoping for the best.

                              I found the clunk in the rear end. It was half shaft to wheel hub. Not in the u-joints. Video: https://www.instagram.com/p/BLHUeI3jYjR/

                              Also installed a hover drive. Brand new technology.
