It's out on the road for tuning and shake-down. Rolling glass will hopefully go in this week.

Feels very different, it's all new, it's all different. It will take me awhile to get used to. Anxious to get the tune cleared up and letting it run harder.

Not much of an update, but I have been able to get the car out and start enjoying it. I have a few lingering changes, like all "done" cars do, but I have been able to put ~450 miles on it thus far.

AC lines are made up, I still need to vacuum/charge the system. I also need to align the door glass and work with my driveshaft speed sensor so that my ECU can reference vehicle speed for a few reasons.
Overall it's running very well.

Not much to update, the car has about 3,300 miles on it so far. Even more exciting is that it has not found it's way onto a tow truck, yet!

I've been getting it out and enjoying it as much as I can...though it's a bit of a pain to get a 4month old and a 2 year old in and out of it!

How does the front end feel with the inner fender braces and the rad support brace?

It feels pretty good up there. I do, however, feel like there is more left on the table in the middle of the chassis. The laser cut subframe connectors look pretty, but I feel like I should have used a through-floor design with a more substantial subframe member.

I suppose there is still not much to update on the car, it's doing what it's supposed to. I am up to around 4,800 miles on it.

In recent weeks I have converted to LED headlights, I'll be using them much more often given daylight savings is upon us. I have also added some dynamat, vapor barriers and aluminum backed foam insulation to the door panels. Those three items tightened up the doors quite a bit.

Aside from that, I am working on designing a bolt-in [no new holes] intake air box to help combat my high intake air temperatures [IATs]. It gets way up there during the summer and I would like to mitigate it a bit.

Other than that, I have been trying to polish on photography skills, getting some definition out of those gloss black wheels isn't easy.
