    As soon as you build a car worth posting about..

    Got some time off from work and got the motor test fit.. after some tweaking (measured the passenger side measurement on the driver side and vice versa for the mounts) and some rewelding.. its in and I can keep my crossmember as is!

    Start the update with the sad life of a neglected S2000... been on the road seemingly non stop for months car has sat in my sisters dusty garage..



    Pushed her outside...



    and began the healing process





    Then began to ready the motor


    Got the motor and car back in my garage finally!


    INitial test fit



    extended steering, alternator clearance


    Car will have all SS allen bolts throughout the motor


    Put back together for picture sake.. in love.








    Over the weekend we will be designing custom valve covers (raised three inches with LS2k (in LSX font) raised lettering on them, should be a killer touch! May be awhile before I can update again but progress will become quicker and quicker now as work is slowing down toward summer!!

    That bumper would be on mine if I thought I could get away with not installing rear over fenders and side skirts.

    Can you provide specs on the rims and tires. Did you have to roll the front and cut the rear?

    Been pretty busy, got a few things accomplished.. going to be trying to finish the metal work in the bay this upcoming Monday-Wednesday!

    Decided to redesign the cooling plate a bit, originally I was going to use these spos for hood pins but I just dont like how they stick out....

    BEFORE


    AFTER


    BEFORE right AFTER left


    since I have modlded the cooling plate/front bumper mount together, these mounts are useless, so I am going to end up shaving them into the frame rails so everything is flat!
    BEFORE


    AFTER grinding the ridges flat, will come back to these later to finish them off, then remove the bolts and weld up those holes as well!


    got my Import Muscle inner and outer tie rods in!




    As well as sway bar relocation


    Then finally got around to working on finishing out the firewall..

    All cut out




    First piece in before I ran out of metal! boooooooooo


    Squaring out the frame rails good and flat with this panel, little filler as possible here


    Then it was off to the water jet to design and cut some parts for the build!


    after being cut in the raw


    After finishing




    Installed




    Thats it for the time being, more updates early/mid next week!

    Thanks bud!

    Small updates, dropped the motor back in one last time to make sure I like where everything sits.... love it.

    Shot of how the cooling plate is going to look, custom tucked radiator will mate right up to this and the fittings will be on the front, a custom shroud will also be made!







    And after the first layer of all metal filler, off to a great start!


    ALSO, ordered some 140 V3 stainless washers from downstar as well as top to bottom SS Allen bolts for the entire motor, -16 black nylon braided hosing for radiator lines and polished AN fittings!
