Default LOTS of updates

Progress has been slow. Mostly because of funds! But progress is progress

As stated before, picked up some Honda S2K Seats. Havent been installed yet...

Following 97-SC300s great thread, I removed the stock, auto transmission tunnel and proceeded to install the MKIV 6MT tunnel. I did things slightly differently and didnt paint the tunnel. My friend who is a qualified panel beater helped me and suggested that it was not needed.

Cleaned up the B03B and shot it with some chassis paint. Also installed Mark's Engineering solid differential bushings. These will help reduce axle tramp and improve launches.

Picked up a MKIV TRD Front Strut brace from GameOn Motorsport (also provided me with the RPS). Another sexy piece of engineering!

Lastly received a sample set of Custom Soarer / SC keys for testing from Mark's Engineering. I had one of them cut to see how it went, worked well. Definitely going to pre-order the Titanium ones!

Wow at this thread. Unbelievable work man!

I can tell you this took alot of time, planning, money, and dedication to do a build like this.

Are you enjoying the car? Any future plans or just keep it at the stock TT level (which is tons of fun)?
