    Michael's GT-R Build

    Again, I am slacking big time in visiting the forum and posting updates. I have been knee deep in wiring these past few weeks. I completed all of the wiring in the front of the car. Then I tackled the back, and got that completed (forgot the license plate light, but will add. Then, when I looked...

    I haven't posted in a while, but I have been doing a bunch of wiring. That's my expertise (at least in the industrial manufacturing realm) so I am having fun. Got the front half of the car completely wired. I don't have turn signals yet, but the wires are hanging and ready to connect. Used a...

    I trimmed and installed the tail light buckets. Looking good! Thanks H!

    I feel like my car is the '57 Plymouth Fury from "Christine". Various unrelated parts would get fixed in a seemingly random order. I seem to flit about working on whatever suits my fancy at the time, but hopefully working towards a goal that won't require too much backtracking. I added a new...

    HI Allan! Yes, I was thinking the exact same thing. I do plan to add a support bar to the rear of the window. I also will be adding the fiberglass wheel wells from H Craft, and that stiffens things up a lot. Michael

    Working on the rear clamshell hinges now. Almost ready to mount the clamshell on. I shimmed the hinges out quite a bit to ensure that there will be no interference between the back edge of the clamshell and the rear section. That means the hinge had to come UP and BACK about 3/8 inch. I imagine...

    And I have been doing a little work here and there. Boy it sucks being quarantined so I have nothing to do but work on the car. Dang it. Starting Electrical work. I wanted the fuse block that came with the Ford control pack wiring harness up under the dash, so a little wire stretching was in...

    Well, the folks at The Driveshaft Shop (Where RCR sources the axles) were really awesome. They provided adapter plates that match the CVs to the axle flange. With the adapter, the axles needed to be 5/8" shorter, and they are handling that as well. What great people! They sent me the adapters...

    Hello there! I was test fitting my axle shafts and came up with an issue. The Graziano flange has a 96mm bolt circle and the axle flange has a 94mm bolt circle. It almost fits but not quite. The wheel side fits fine (and is also a 94mm bolt circle). Has anyone else had this issue? I guess I'll...

    It is a different style light - Saved a few bucks on the cost of the light, but it took a lot longer to fab a bracket! My headlamps are the style you are thinking of.
