Damn, that's a big parts list. You won't have to worry about the maintenance for a long, long time. That's a good price for the motor mounts, where did you get them?

I got the motor mounts from Driftmotion........Most of the parts were from either Driftmotion or MVP Motorsports

Looks great! Any chance you can post pics of the back side showing how you stapled it or anything? And yeah that passenger side looks broke. Since you're re-wrapping it could you just find a small length of steel or aluminum and just hot glue or rivet it all together? Wouldn't even notice it after you wrap it.

any of them really. I'd like to try doing something similar and I'm a rookie to recovering/reupholstering stuff. So just kind of curious how you attach it on the back. Staples, adhesive, etc? And pics speak a thousand words

As and shall receive.....I used DAP Weldwood Contact Cement for Adhesive (apply to both panel and vinyl and let it sit for 15-20 mins until it gets tacky.....I had to use multiple coats)and staples where I could.....The Best stuff to use is Landau Top and Trim adhesive but it requires to sprayed out of a paint gun....

The arm rests are by far the easiest to wrap because they are made out of foam which makes it easy to load up on the staples....The back isnt pretty but you will never see it...





Here is how i did the other pieces....

I had to repair this panel with fiberglass on the inside......I suggest to just rewrap over the existing vinyl on these lower panels....on the passenger side panel i decided to remove the old vinyl and it literally fell apart....



The upper pieces are not very difficult either as the wood trim pieces enable the vinyl to get really tight...Just be careful where you put the staples.....Make sure you have the foam so they dont stick through...

Excellent, thanks for that. Agree nobody sees the back side so doesn't matter what it looks like. Looking good man!

4" Mandrel bend aluminum pipe came in today and mocked it up for intake....I ordered a 45 degree piece and cut about 3 in off each end to make it fit perfect...





Decided to paint it black....

So do you plan to run the fan without a shroud?

I would also paint the back side housing of the turbo if not using a turbo wrap or heat shield. The black looks great man. I would also paint the fan itself black, along with the stock overflow tank. Just rough them up first and it should hold up very well, like mine.

Loving the progress.
