    Body work then paint. Paint is Viper Red. The code is PRN off of a 90s dodge viper in case anyone wanders about the color. Added Stainless fuel tank, stainless fuel lines and stainless brake lines.

    I'm sorry, I told you the wrong part. This is what happens when I try to go off memory. I built the rear a couple years ago and had to go back to receipt to verify what I used. I actually used a Powertrax Lock-right. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwt-1240-lr Sorry for the confusion, I read that whole thread and was very concerned, then finally realized that I had a different part when I looked close at the pictures. Hahaha Thanks for the heads up though!

    Thanks! Yes, I built my subframe conectors out of tubing. I didn't put the inner fender bracing in, I felt like it wasn't needed as much. Plus I plan to built a bolt in underhood brace similar to what XV sells.

    Any details as to the Brembo install? Spindle, bracket, rotors? Anything custom?
    Thanks, Wes

    There is a lot of details here. The brembos and the rear calipers came off a 2007 mustang in the junkyard. The rotor fits on the drum brake hub. It's a very affordable way to get better brakes that what is offer by the aftermarket support
