If you haven't sourced your parts for this build yet it will be almost impossible to complete or you better have a lot of money. Part are mainly sourced from the U.K. with some parts coming from the USA and Germany.

what did you use for the door panels? i want to do that this spring!

I used a thin fiber board which I found at menards, I ordered some suede in from hungary, found some foam for the padding and lots of epoxy! I helped someone else on here who I now believe has a sticky in the how to section.

Are you doing the bodywork or fitting a look alike body kit?

All OEM Exterior (all metal panels)

Any projected time for completion?

-I want the body completed and in for paint by May at the latest
-I want the engine and running gear in and dyno'd by July
-If all goes well its First Trackday will be in October after the couple month break-in

I might be done before these dates but only time will tell.
