Also they are doing the install, ducting/venting of (on the tube frame part of the tub in the front) dual Fluidyne 12"x9"x3.5" oil coolers with the RH radiator in the front.

Lastly (maybe lastly... depending on how broke I am when they get done with me....) they are doing the rear carbon diffuser/tunnel install.

And I'm probably going to have them do the 997 front control arm/upright deal (since they made the rear suspension carrier last week).

Then it's going to get powder coated, then the drive train gets installed.

ETA is 2 weeks.

Ahhh

The entire tub (engine compartment, interior/cage, underside) will be powder coated a metallic gun metal grey.

I'm not sure about the body but I'm feeling Ferrari red with white graphics.

Love the gun metal color. Sticking with your favorite color is an easy choice. Dare yourself to be different. I only went half way towards that route of course. Half black. my favorite... and the other half gray and white. Full race car needs a full race paint job.. GO crazy.

The reason for red is to keep the car looking "somewhat" like the car its replacing.

If it were up to me, I'd do something far more track appropriate.

Should look great! From a practical finding-dropped-nuts-and-bolts-and-stuff perspective I've always preferred white floors on my race cars, but white certainly doesn't look nearly as cool. Looking forward to pics!

Ok, so i have to ask, why on earth would you ever want 35 gallon cell?

Easy ballast (in the form of fuel)???
Do you have to weigh in immediately after a race - or...... maybe just beofore??? Do I forsee a quick drain setup
