missile update.

I have been working extra hours to get this boat ready for practice.

Here is what i have accomplished so far.

I installed the Walbro 255 into the fuel tank about 2 weeks ago and took time off for Formula D. This week, I rolled the fenders, removed the rear subframe (including the diff), removed the front and rear struts, and attempted to fab up a seat bracket for my Recaro.

The seat bracket i made was too weak and scary so i decided to purchase one from Tee's USA.


Here is the rear subframe. Its waiting for some goods from G. at www.serialnine.com.
Here is exactly what im waiting for. These pics were taken off of G's blog so they aren't mine. But the parts in the picture is what im waiting for. Subframe bushings and diff bushings.

The silver part replaces this rubber black thing:

That should help make the car feel less like a boat. Instant drift with raging clutch kicks.

Here is now a picture of my rolled fender. Not very aggressive but it will get better as i start to fit the wheels on. I just needed to the get roll going as i need to return the fender roller to my friend. I can do the rest with a pipe.

The front ones will need some bondo. but here it is:

I also put on the rear bumper off a x81 Mark II.

So that's it for now. I hope my next update wont take too long once again.
