    Great work so far. One day I hope to go this deep on a trac.

    So it's been quite a long time since my last update. I've had next to zero time to work on it but recently got the last of the under dash completed with all pedals and steering column in.

    and my hatch finally came back from the body shop. The hatch was way behind the rest of the car as the guys doing my paintwork had to find someone willing to pull out the glass and make me a custom moulding so they could fill in the windshield squirter. The results are great though.

    Dashboard is in!! I even got the cluster and my gauges in as well.
    The gauges go in early because they are tied into the engine harness and I don't really want to have to take everything apart again later if I can.

    I also found time to work on my mirrors. I swapped the glass out of a set I bought from Germany into my Japanese ones so that now I have power folding LHD mirrors
    I now have for sale a set of manual fold "jdm" mirrors for sale if anyone is interested

    If you order the replacemtn glass for them online you can get them power and heater. (you link it to the rear window defrost and it then cancels automagically )

    That probably would have saved me money. Lol
    the mirrors came from germany and have the defrost in the m. I guess i need to decide if I want to run even more wires. building the harness for the power folding is a PITA

    So this post is probably quite boring to everyone else but this weekend I will be able to install my rear seats!!
    All of the main interior panels are now installed. Next up will putting the doors back together so that I can finish putting everything under the dash and complete the wiring for the mirrors. It's really starting to look like a car again!

    So the bulk of the interior went in last night. The seats and console aren't actually bolted in as I still have to adjust the ebrake cable once installed as well as finish wiring in the mirror once the doors are put back on. Next on the list is finishing the underneath of the car and suspension. It's looking more and more like a car every day.

    The interior was a big step! In the coming weeks I may actually be able to put some real thought into the engine and eventually seeing the car moves under its own power again

    Did you treat the door cards like I recommended? It makes a big difference.

    I actually ran out of sound deadening. I have to order more. I should have ordered the bigger package. I haven't touched the doors as of yet. Left them off so they wouldn't be in the way

    As usual I haven't updated this in a while. I haven't made much progress on the car in MONTHS. Its been a crazy summer and I'm looking forward to the fall and winter when I've got more free time at home to work on it. I haven't forgetten about her though. Today I picked up this beauty.
    Strange car. Its a GTS but with no options. roll up windows and all but does have AC.
    The car has an RC engine in it and runs pretty darn good. The brakes were super sketchy do I wasn't really able to push it.
    I'm quite pleased with the car basically rust free and the swap is really clean! I'll get some better pictures in the day light.

    ^ The damn car that Blackhawk never became. What was the sticker price if you don't mind me asking?

    As usual its been a while since I last updated this post. The frequency of the posts is reflective of the amount of time I can find to work on the old girl.
    I have picked away at a few things. I have the doors assembled but wont put them on the car until the build is basically done. One less thing to worry about scratching.
    I also got the gas tank and rear subframe installed. I had luke (klue) modify my sending unit to allow for bigger lines and had to massage the trunk a fair bit to install but she is now in.
    I also made my decision when it comes to powertrain. I picked this up on the weekend. I am going to send the harness to Doug at wiregap shortly to get built and do the tune up while the harness is gone. I'm hoping that by having the engine here it will light a bit of a fire under my ass to keep this project rolling. Other than time there is very little that will stop me from driving the car this summer.

    As of late I've been making a bit of progress on the old girl. I've done a lot of shopping lately and have accumulated most of the big-ticket items needed to finish off the build. Currently, the 215 motor has been stripped down and I've sent the valve cover and intake manifold out for paint and should get them back tonight.
    I've got the harness back from wiregap along with the new downpipe in the picture. I also found a set of wilwood front brake set up that is currently being shipped from the UK which I am really stoked about.
    Hopefully, next week I'll get around to doing all the maintenance item on the engine and get the transmission sent out for paint so I can re-assemble everything and get ready for installation. At the rate things are going there is actually a chance I will drive it before the snow falls though I'm not holding my breath as with a build of this size I'm sure all of the little things will take longer than expected.

    its pretty easy to miss as I don't update or actually work on the car nearly as often as I should.
    However my wife is going to Toronto for the WHOLE DAY on Saturday with both kids so I know exactly where I will be
    hopefully have a nice update for everyone next week

    So this isn't related to my build but a friend of mine just sent me a bunch of old pictures of the car from AutoX events. These would be probably 5 or 6 years old. Basically, the last full season the car was on the road. Brought a tear to my eye and hopefully lit a small fire under my ass to start working on it.
    The green OEM wheels were for track use only and I thought at the time it made the pictures look awesome.
