Started working on the front subframe, I had to make some sleeves for the LCA's as the prothane kit didn't include them and I didn't keep my old ones.



Picked up a new gun for the sandblasting cabinet and now I have some stuff ready for powdercoat.



Table full of parts to put the car back together!



I thought this was kind of fun but can you believe that these screws cost more than $40!!! (oh the small joys of building a European car)



Should be welding up the new fuel tank access cover today or tomorrow and maybe some reassembly this weekend.

It could be worse, I was reading about the new Huayra and how its 1400 titanium bolts(all laser etched with Pagani's logo) cost $112k alone

Thats $80 per bolt

I haven't looked at the tally in a while.

Indicator screws, one for the clear rs indicators the other for the stock orange if I need a change up. The car is staying LHD which is why I need to source parts from Germany every once in a while.
