    Fantastic!! I will be sure to let you know if I have to go there. I am hoping what I have will do because this has ran way over budget.

    Over budget? No idea what you mean

    Looks amazing.

    However, I'm not a fan of that "shift knob", much prefer the factory AOD look...

    Keep up the great work.

    Being over budget is just a line item in the budget.

    Had to get creative to mount the Darale trans cooler. A little aluminum and some imagination and it turned out killer. Made a mount using the existing aluminum tank straps. Almost looks like it was meant to be mounted there

    I dropped an extra set of stock amber headlights to the paint shop to be very lightly smoked. Can’t stand how dark the aftermarket ones are (the red car pictured). Wanted something ever so slightly darker than stock to go with the theme I’m after. First pic is new and old on the car. As you can see they’re not overkill imo

    The hunt to track down 5k original mile black tweed was so worth it. THIS is exactly what I had in my head for an interior

    Sweet! Interior looks perfect! Are you setting up the cooler to push or pull air? Do you have a little clearance for air movement? Please check the side tanks of the cooler for their powdercoat bungs before filling with fluid. I can explain privately

    Mobil tint for the win. 35% all the way around was the recipe for my theme

    PS if tinting ANY glass....ALWAYS tint the windshield to some degree

    All caught up! I can tell one HUGE problem on this car you may have overlooked. It's not in my garage.

    Trans cooler is great.
    LOVE the interior and tint.
    Nice to keep the stock shift but could it be cut down at all?
    I’d leave that decision mainly to how it feels when you sit, but aesthetically an inch cut down may look even better. Definitely splitting hairs at this point.
    Hope you get to fire it soon!

    Done

    the number is would take to get it there would stun you :D
    I agree totally on the shifter. As for right now the goal is to get the car together and tuned/ready for the street and then make little tweaks like that afterwords. Knowing me the car will have an A10 next year anyways lol

    Coincidentally I actually removed the tint on that car because I thought it looked so “elegant” with clear class. But with the changes you’ve made I can see tint being appropriate now :)
