Nav, where are you located? I noticed the tight fitting bumper at front right off. I wish mine still had that euro look. Where did you find your recaro seat and how is the project comming along?

They car is located in London. I found the seats from a chap in Germany through ebay. They cost me about $1500 but have been fully retrimmed and recushioned. The subframes have been ordered from Recaro USA and delivery is expected in the next 2 weeks. The project is coming along slowly but is getting there. I have just upgraded all the carpets to a 100% wool set.
The main job is finishing of the sound installation as i have a $4k sound system that is being installed. One thing with this project is that no expense is being spared.
I have just ordedered new wood trim for the interior, and a Momo wood leather steering. Also i have found these gorgeous chrome sills for it that are being modified so they can fit.
I have had a full stainless steel exhaust fitted on the car which sound perfect! I managed to get a real bargain on it as my best friend works at a specialist exhaust centre!
Another thing i'm looking into is installing a 6.9 litre engine into the car. Only problem is finding one!
