    Good ol' rustoleum. I considered POR15, but it's expensive and really not necessary. I've sealed stuff with rustoleum in the past and it does a fantastic job.

    my buddy sealed his lincoln's trunk with that black/grey looking floor epoxy stuff for garages?

    like 25$ a can and you can pretty much shoot 22 shorts at it after a few days of curing.

    I've honestly thought about buying the rustoleum floor stuff and doing my garage floor. That would be quite a project though as I already have some stuff on my garage floor so it'd be a weekend project. BUT it would sure make clean up easy!

    I am sorry I haven't been on here much. I've been a social recluse. Unfortunately I battle depression swings and it's been hitting me hard the past many months. I've finally crawled out of my hole a bit to try and be a bit more active. Missed y'all!

    I am approaching the point where she is almost ready to fire up. So close. Ever have that moment where you can taste it but you aren't there yet? That's where I am.

    Since last update:

    - Brake conversion is 100%. Unfortunately one of the calipers had issues and I had to have it re-machined. That's been since resolved. The rabbit master cyl conversion was a huge success. Granted I won't know how much good it does till I get the car running, I crunched a lot of numbers so I am hoping the math was right. I plan on reinforcing the firewall with a few CF panels or welding in more material since it's no longer vacuum assisted.

    - Engine was sent to the machine shop and is done and back in my hands. It is now up on the engine stand and being assembled. It turned out great.

    - Unfortunately the first head I sent in was a total waste. It was scrapped. Machine shop said where the cam sits was warped beyond repair due to the oil starvation the engine had.

    - Fortunately I had a spare head. It's almost finished, I ordered the parts almost a week ago and they should be here this week, meaning the head should be done this week. Meaning I should have the engine in very soon.

    - The euro pistons were a go and turned out great.

    - The interior is pretty much finished. I added a layer of carpet (weighed less than 2lbs, very thin) to make the inside a bit presentable and also to reduce glare in various parts of the car.

    - I made some quarter windows out of Acrylic. I will be doing side windows in Lexan.

    - I've been working with SP Engineering on ideas for the fuel system. There is apparently a nice fuel system they've been using universal fit AN adapters that has more than enough pressure for what I need and will work with my megasquirt setup. They've been using it on their GTR builds from what they tell me. However, since I can't really get the fuel system in place till the engine is in (due to not being able to measure things till it's all in place) there is not much I can do about that.

    - Made a tank cover out of CF. Bit lighter than the one there, looks better too. Nice thing is I can modify it if I need to at some point when I'll be required to get a cage.

    Gimme a few minutes to round up the pics...

    This build has made it through two of my internet hiatuses (sp?) Got to say I am ready to see her finished up. I gotta admit I have some questions that I am going to have to go back and re read some thought.
    Regedit'ed, Rooted, and Jailbroke anymore questions?
    Here’s a bumper sticker I’d like to see: “We are the proud parents of a child who’s self-esteem is sufficient that he doesn’t need us promoting his minor scholastic achievements on the back of our car.”
