The body lines look so crisp and stand out with one color! Great Job!

Looks great Texas, keep up the good work. I hope you have air conditioning in your garage. I bet it is freaking hot there!

A few more. Still need a few more mods and body work but I got tired of it for now.

It's been awhile and I won't go into detail but 50+hours of body work and a coat of primer to protect it until I go at it again! Hood sand doors are just sitting on it. Oh and it runs and drives!!!

Thanks Lance. I used a g28 Maxima windshield frame and a late 90's windshield.

Very nice progress Texas. You make me jealous I can't work on mine, so I will live vicariously through you.

I relocated the evap system to the front trunk as well as the filler neck and battery. Second test fit looks much better and it's running and driving. I will update when I make some more progress.

KSport coilovers installed. The birds nest Digibeam referred to.

I know this is hard to see but it is easy to do. Cutting and extending the coolant lines. It's a pain but all other lines and hoses will stretch or re route.

Mr B welding her up. 2nd pic I started putting the coilovers on and you can see where Dustin made the floor pan to cover the gap. All welled and seam sealer on the seams. 3rd pic was the first test fit. Had to scalp the dash area more.

Thanks for the info Digibeam. I would say all thing considered this is an easy stretch but there are some challenges to the dash area. Cut in half in 10min. Dustin welding together a couple hours with plenty of time for beer in between welds. You can see the hoses and lines when it's pulled apart.

those dash's are a pain in the butt to get apart... everything is screwed to everything else...  looking good though !
the stretch will be easier than the dash,  just be sure to disconnect all the plastic hoses under the driver side...  you can actually keep them in tact by removing some of their mounts and stretching also...  it will save issues later.
the fuel cell though... no way to get rid of that passenger side filler... but if you need a picture of what it looks like out of the car to give you and idea,  i have several.
