Nice ride Brian. Bout time I actually see your car.
Did you ever figure out a way to use hood struts with your cf hood? I'm still contemplating mounting mine for that reason alone.

Do you have plans to do different wheels/tires? Those tires would have a lot of trouble hooking up with the LSx swap.

Quite an extensive list of mods. It never ends. Too bad you were not able to put the StopTechs on. That would have popped.
