In this picture we see the last pieces installed rear Race Prep super bones, Hot Trick flexible rear suspension retainers and rear spacers.

...and here is what they look like assembled. The rear end is almost complete in this pic.

This was so cool to open, the new battery mount is so shiny!

Image

Here it is installed with the body mounting kit ready to go on.

Here are the body mount parts installed. I can never get my pictures right, I never have enough light in my room and my flash control is awful. But I do like when they come out with a darker light like this sometimes, just a little to much shadow...

Looking really good but you gots to ditch that regular roll bar in favor of the RPS gold annodized one shown in your earlier pics.

Good old ZB-42 ties the front end to the rear end...

Image

It looks a bit sad and droopy when there's no front end, so that's what I'll post next!

Hey Doc - if you have one to fit on mate - Jim is right - it would look perfect with the trick rear mount/brace as well.

Cheers

Ditch the roll bar? Hmm. It would be a bit of a half breed with the gold one on though wouldn't it?

So this is quite a big job the front end. It will pretty much finish the car. So here are all the bits laid out ready to go on, Hot Trick dual shock mounts, lower 'A' arms and RPS SE hardened front axles and drive shaft.

Image

Here the front hub assemblies have been completed and Race Prep super bones installed. At this point also the front bearings, chain gear and axle are all installed in the front bulkhead too.

Image

In this pic the front end is assembled with the Hot Trick upper suspension arm kit replacing the stock upper arms and the front shocks made earlier.

The next part I got from Asa (cheers dude) and is pretty rare so forgive its used condition. I bring you the rear Hot trick titanium wing and new Kimbrough large wing ties! 8)

At this stage I cleaned up the alloy wheels, rustled up my tires and the car was pretty much ready to go. But then I thought I could (bar a body) do my best to complete it with electronics too.
