Man I have been waiting FOREVER to see updates of this thing. Damn this car is so sweet. I want a ride in this so bad. You have got to be proud.

well when i get done if you are ever in southwest MO feel free to give me  a shout! ('when' its done :) )

I have been messing around with interior before the car goes out for body work, as the rear panels didn't fit with the cage/mini tub. The kick panels fit just by shaving the backs down to where they were flat. all the t top pieces and a pillar's fit in tight, but do fit. So all i have to do is build some rear B pillar panels. I also had to cut my own headliner board out of some ABS plastic since no one makes a headliner without seat belts (running 5 point harnesses) or sun-visors (THANKS PETE!).

here are a couple pics of the progress of the interior.





here are the pics of the abs I cut to start my new fiberglass rear panel and also my mold. Hope to make the new fiberglass panel next week







and here is a pic of my racepak sitting in the dash, going to tackle making a new gauge overlay soon too.



and a mock up of my Anvil carbon fiber deck lid and filler panel

Dumb question but the roll bar isn't going to interfere with accessing the handles to release the t roofs?

Nope, work just fine. They sit next to the t top so the handle slides down just fine

417 motorsports built it actually. I have my template made that will go over it, but still have to cut it out as well.
