Well we have been busy, last weekend we put the engine back in the car so we could work on mounting the splitter. We built the lower splitter mount and we set the splitter at 5.5 inches off the ground and about 6inches ahead of the upper splitter, this mount will also be part of the radiator mount. We spent a lot of time looking at the front fenders and figuring just how we were going to widen and mount the front fenders. We had thought about just building front fenders but we wanted to keep the Porsche look, so we just decided to widen the stock fenders. As you can see front the pictures, we cut 6 inch panels and put ½ inch flanges on them to get the 5 inch finish. We had to do the top in 3 pieces because we want to put Louvers in the center area, but the Louvers did come in the mail so we just left the hole open for now. We figured out where everything was going to fit and started drilling and putting in Cleco’s to hold everything so I could weld it all up. I also had to do some hammer and dolly work to get things lined up. I also had to build the fender mount in the rear just in front of the door. This all went well and we should have the front fenders all finished up next weekend, we are both pleased with the new wider and nastier stance. I also worked on the driver side headers, the headers on that side needed to be reworked, so I cut them apart and changed the angle in order to make it clear the steering.
