Also started to save an RS grill. It cam to me with three broken tabs, the bottom one was included and easy to fix but the top two were a pain. I bought a european grill on ebay and had it sent to a friend in europe so he could hack it up for the upper arms to save on shipping cost.

I'm getting close on it now but it looks like I may need to elongate the bottom mounting holes for adjustment room and to keep the stress off of the upper arms.

I just recently picked up a rust free metal oem hood and I think I may have finally located the vents to create this hood (a guy who stopped selling them might make me a set):

I have a running spreadsheet for this car for every part I have, and parts I will need. Maybe I will post up a parts list from this car sometime down the road.

All I can say is I think it will be almost impossible to build an RS rep with OEM parts in the USA for under 20K (i'm including the cost of the car in here)

Maybe I will post a final cost when I'm done but I don't even want to know right now

One thing I need to start doing is recording my time!
