Been awhile since I visited this thread. Shame on me. Simply awesome.

Also glad I came back and saw your post on the Showroom New black dye. This gives me an option to try to convert my gray plastic to black since I don't want paint.

I didn't know they were different but I will just splice them into the original wiring if necessary.

us specific connection has one connector male per each female (fan) Rs has only one connector that joins to fans wires
also for the splicing connecting - it is sucks if you will be soldering it - turbo location will make it go away and just connecting wires by twisting also can be bad because of the heat in that area- I am not sure how to deal with it for now

Well Since I am waiting for parts I decided to do another update earlier than what I was going to:

rear suspension changed out:


New fronts being created:


Painted front carriers because they developed surface rust:


AN fittings added for fuel delivery and return, this is the second one I had to do because the first version I did lacked the spring bars. :screwy:


All my front lines are now bent just deciding how to go about doing the ones through the car and to the rear because of the difficult bends.
