Parts in Primer:



Car Ready For Primer:



I will only be priming the bottom of the car for the time being as we need to weld in the cage yet, add harness mounts, and there are a few areas I would like to reinforce as the focus rs did. (trailing arm mounting point, engine mount, strut tower) This way if I need to do any welding or sanding I won't be ruining paint, just primer.

Thanks Everybody!

Parts in Paint: (I like this color so much I have decided to paint the cage to match)





Bottom of car in Primer:



I will probably hit the bottom of the car with one more coat of primer once the undercoating, seam sealing, and welding is done. Then I will finish with the paint. I'm going to have Dominic build my adjustable parts (Front arms, rear camber and toe) but I haven't decided what color. I may go red to match the eibach sways, or I might go black or color matched.

I had to see part of the cage in the car last night!



I will be gone for a week so no updates until then.
