    Michael's GT-R Build

    Made the doodads that anchor the top of the door to the body. Don't know what those are called... Anyway, didn't think I would be able to find the real thing. I realized later after looking at photos that I was supposed to put three mounting holes in it instead of just two. I'll probably leave...

    Michael's GT-R Build

    Then, a longer project. I didn't know if I could get fog lamp lenses, so I planned ahead. Before I cut out the lens holes, I made a mold of the area with fiberglass, which created a reverse image. I don't know why I didn't just use the plugs I cut out to make the holes, but I do remember cutting...

    Then I wanted my car to be officially denoted as a Ford.

    Michael's GT-R Build

    I've gotten a few things done over the past few weeks while waiting for the door panels and dash to return from the trim shop. First, I finished glassing the front fender flairs that I trimmed off. Before: Professional molds fitted: Fiberglass. One fun result was the resin dripped down...

    Oh Man, I'd love to, but I'll be with the Boy Scouts hiking on the AT all weekend! Next time, though!

    Steve's GT-R Build Thread

    Looks great and I loved the video. Never been all the way around that track, but would love to do so when I get mine done. Some time, when you're up there, let me know and I'd love to drive up and watch. Michael

    No, it won't be yellow. That's just the color of the eBay side mirrors. Thanks for the other tips.

    Michael's GT-R Build

    Carpet is in! I am not happy with the console color. For some reason it turned out waaaaay grey instead of silver. I'm going with it for now. Next will be vinyl on the door skins (from H Craft) and the dash. Ugh, that means the dash will have to come out for final sealing of the gaps and vinyl...

    Michael's GT-R Build

    Hey, I was wondering what y'all think about the color..... Oh, and thanks to Alan P (#Ajzridehouston) for the solid models of the adapters for the C6 mirrors. I 3D printed one, and CNC routed the other. The routed one turned out better, so I will do the other one that way. The model mated...

    Michael's GT-R Build

    Working on adding the mesh in the rear valence openings. Since the oval cutouts are not flat on the original car, I made a form out of wood (walnut, since it was laying around :)) and formed the piece in the hydraulic press. Turned out perfect! I bought some SS adhesive mount studs...

    Michael's GT-R Build

    Installed Corbeau seat belts from Summit Racing. This is a street car, so these will be perfect. Since they are certainly a safety item, I decided on the floor to add a 1/4"x4"x4" plate to bolt through the floor. On the upper mounts, they are u-bolted around the roll cage.

    First Drive! I got the MAF tuned well enough for it to run pretty well, though it will be going to the tuner in a week or two.
