Time will tell. Bought a BBM chip for now I'll drive it for a season then maybe switch it up and do a 16v head and such.

Pulled the engine and had Bret spray it a new color... I'll update this soon stay tuned.

Ta dah! Just sprayed the bay. Engines back in and I'm lengthening the engine harness.

Also bought myself something for Christmas :D

Now I'm also beginning to debate what to do for an interior... I have these sparco that I can't seem to get rid of. I was thinking them, remove the rear seat, false floor and a roll bar. Part of me would like a full interior but I ain't got kids so :laugh: What do you guys think?

nice. Cool to see some progress on this one. I don't have the patience for making a show car, I just like to build and beat, but looking forward to seeing more of this one!

I think the sparcos would be ok in that car with that color. They might not be the more comfortable thing, but who knows. Only suck part is having to use harnesses. I get sick of strapping in with the 5pt on the street in my car, but you get used to it.

I think I'm leaning toward stock interior for now and keeping a rear seat. I want the car to be comfortable...

I'm not sure about the whole show car thing either. Just trying to do something less half ass then I usually do. Oh and don't worry it will still get beat. I'm not going to put money into something and not get my money's worth out of it.

Nice work and progress. Looking forward to the final product. I like the color choice in the bay.

I too debated the stock interior vs race prep for awhile... Ended up staying stock for the odd times when needing to fit more people/dogs/belongings in the car. In the end that was the right choice for me.

If you have no intention to race then stock interior is the way to go. I drive my racing rabbit a lot in the summer and climbing over a cage into a race seat with a harness gets old some days.
Glad to see progress. Color change is a lot of work! Can't wait to see it

Thumbs up....

:ParthOn:

On the Corrado, is it like the Rabbit front end where you have to paint the body part in back of the grill black so it doesn't show?

Core support is more open and further back. Shouldn't be as viable but I'll keep that in mind when I get there.
