Teh guttage *lots O\' pics*

I wasn't going to post pics of the car until it was done, but I told CCC I'd get him pics, and would rather just put them out there. The door panels will be coming out and being replaced with aluminum paneling, carpet and sound deadening removed, the headliner ripped out, the sunroof removed and aluminummed shut, and the windows replaced with plexiglass/lexan. This is just a temporary state for it right now. Without further adu:









splitter is off due to cutting an animal in half with it.

Love it or hate it, it's mine and I'll do with it as I please. So

Re: Teh guttage *lots O\' pics*

cool dude, how much does it weigh now?
Not sure. Probably not much less than it did before I started pulling the dumb stuff.
Oh well.

Don't they make seats that attach to the rollbar?

Needs a Kirkey all-aluminum baby seat.


Any tips on getting the console off? I've been trying to replace mine, but I can't get it off. It always gets hung up on the e-brake handle.

Pull the E-brake handle, as hard as you can, it should go almost vertical....that's waht I did. I removed mine, and did the same when putting my rear seat vents into Em's car.

Ac will be leaving the car as well, just haven't gotten around to much. These are just the beginning pictures. I wasn't going to post them, but I promised CCC like a month ago I'd post up pictures of my progress but have been slacking.

I was wondering how much too. I doubt it's much but still every little bit helps.

What cage is that on the inside? Autopower?

Also, did you think of maybe using Carbon Fiber for the door panels instead of aluminum? The carbon might not resonate sound as bad as aluminum. Plus it would look badass.

Nice start though. I wish I had the same courage to gut mine.
