Build is progressing well. Gearbox is done, engine is done. Most of the parts are at the garage. The tub is getting a fresh coat of paint end of this week. We ended up replacing the roof panel (it had a lot of dents in it) and the bumpers, doors, fenders etc. needed some TLC. She's gonna get a new windshield and plexiglass too. Gonna look pretty when all is done and she gets her new wrap.

About 1 week from finishing the build. Engine and gearbox went in today. Suspension is coming together. Everything in the suspension is new, wheel carriers, arms etc.

This might be possible. We have to check the noise limits.
