    Well since its come and gone ....Looks like we can shoot for it this summer lol.

    Finally have a little time to throw some updates up. Car is back on its own suspension once again, tubs are completed while maintaining the full function of the vert top. Fuel caell is in and awaiting plumbing. Dart short block is ready to get dressed and then dropped in. Doing some interior work now so that I can send out all the parts for custom finishes. With a little bit of luck Im hoping to be ready by mid June, that's if I don't add any more fab work to the list.

    yeah because it was a quick test fit after lying down the carbon.. Trust me I'm way to anal to put anything in my car that isn't 100% perfect if you didn't notice.
