    I could see where your changes made it a more fun car to drive, and it looks amazing.

    Willow green is such an awesome color!

    Had my own mid (engine) crisis a couple years ago.
    Narrow body hotrod with 2.7MFI engine, close ratio gearbox, bigger/ventilated brakes, bunch of custom stuff.
    Fun car....

    Outstanding Doug! I wish I had known about your build when I was doing mine, you definitely got there first.

    I love the fiberglass hood, do you have any issues with it? I'm thinking of doing that some day, along with a through the hood filler.

    Bravo.

    No issues with the hood once I chose a Getty example.
    The roof panel has to be placed just so in the rear trunk for the rear hood to close, but it's not a real problem.
    The 1st one's (front and rear) I purchased from another person didn't fit well and I ended up ditching them.
    The Getty hoods (front and rear) on the other hand fit well from the very beginning....the fit and finish is first rate.

    Awesome. Is that prop rod from PMB? I ended up with a Seine rod for the front hood since even after replacing the springs it still didn't stay up. Lastly, what color is that? It looks like Heron Grey a little from the lighting.

    Is it from PMB and it's the cat's meow. I fastened it to the GT hood differently than how PMB suggested, but worked great in the end.
    On 914World, there's a post on the PMB prop rod install: http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=351480
    Also a build thread for the car as well: http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=249327

    The car is actually painted a 2020 Porsche color, Carrara Weisse. It's non metallic and quite white....guess the pics don't bring that out.
