Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

So, guys, my car is gonna be garaged for a while... wife’s car was recently pulled into service and currently I can only afford to insure one at a time... the build will continue, as there are lots of mods that can be developed without the car being legal to drive...

what I wanna try and get done:

1. Recaro seat swap from RL(and clean up interior)
2. Wheel skirts, first will make them for rear wheels then will develop front wheel skirts(will have to articulate with wheel turning)
3. Possibly swap on front clip from RL(it looks nice and *may* be more aerodynamic
4. Header and exhaust?
5. Get rid of power steering error message
6. Build rear diffuser/belly pan

all of this in no particular order, depending on how long the car will be down...

I now have mounting tabs for the rear wheel skirts, just need to cut out the coroplast to actually make them, and make a stiffener for the bottom edge of the skirt, otherwise it’ll flap and as a result rub the tire... pics to come soon I hope

For some reason I can’t focus on just one project at a time, so I also have the rear seats loose in preparation for a good detailing and the Recaro swap...

So my cars been cleaned out and vacuumed good and the Recaro seats swapped in...

a detwrmined person could complete the swap in like 20 min with an air ratchet to loosen the seat bolts... two bolts on each front seat (15mm head) and the back seats clip in...

now, both my carpet and the seats are fairly stained so it’ll come apart again for stain removal or fabric dye-ing but for now it’s teallg comfortable...

i will warn that while while swapping the coupe/RL rear seats does work it reduces rear passenger capacity to just two... you could probably grab a black leather bench from another sedan if you want them to match but need the seating capacity...
