Finally have my hood mesh installed, this was an absolute pain as my tolerances around the hood vent were so tight and stainless does not like to cut or bend in any way.



On the flip side I should have my suspension installed this weekend if my retaining nuts arrive, but I am still waiting on rear rotors from puma speed.

Do you think Customs had fun searching my wheels?



I am checking them tonight and hopefully they are alright.

Getting the suspension back together:



And as much as I like the standards I can't get over how good these look on this car:



I need to decide as I want to mount up tires soon.

Also my AP Racing 6 paddle arrived, should handle any goals I have up to 400hp at which point I would switch to a dual.

Very user friendly clutch, DD in it should be comfortable.

Only had a chance to pull one out but I think the wheels are going to be ok. The center caps on these were done really nicely!

As nice as the TD's are, the RS is a must for the finished car. Like I said any nice set will look good.
