    Time for another update as more than a few things have been done since the last one. I didn't do the work. This was all done be Keith Newton and Chris Nielsen. I just chose things and asked questions

    I went back to the two battery setup up front. I considered doing a smugglers box relocation and was promptly talked out of it (rather easily too). A PO went with a single battery up front and didn't properly romove the left batt. New battery hold downs were welded in and new batteries were sourced. Interstate U-911

    It's a Facet pump. Keith made a new mouting bracket for it.

    Fire extinguisher mounted on the cross bar of the roll bar.

    Replaced the inertia belts with 4 point harnesses.

    I went with some Rennline pedals. A deal pedal in there as well now.

    A little suface rust repair. Most likely a brake fluid thing?? I'll be painting the frunk all black eventually, so it really won't need any silver there.

    Hi Michael,

    I upgraded the rotors and calipers to SCs (thanks PMB), and I really haven't used those yet. I'm not a race car driver at all, so I'd be much better off doing some driver education. This is a case where the car will be much more capable than the person behind the wheel

    The fire extiguisher mounted to the roll bar. It's still a quick release that can be accessed from either seat.

    the washer bottle was relocated up front. It'a a factory AC car, so it was moved up originally.
