Very nice progress man! I hope your lungs are still well.

Definitely. I did during my paint action of the 11 hole rims of AUDI for my fuel saver project. It was a alcohol based solvent and it attacked my throat mucosa, it bled a bit. Since then the throat need a bit more care, as it lost a bit of its full throttle defend capacity, maybe it need's Hondabond 😉. Anyway, seems like a good plan as everything is already at your place, isn't it?

Nice color choice for sure. Cage looks great 👍
It's a one stage color so has clear in it, buddy of my here in town has a paint shop so he got all the goods for me, price was not cheap for this and I am thinking after this summer to do same color on the outside and bay but not 100%, for sure the bay, doors and trunk.

It would look nice if everything was that color, but it’s dark enough that you could really contrast any color choice you could think of against it. I like dark colors for leaving options open to different themes later on

Its just a lip, maybe from protecting the hood being slammed down, not sure.

The middle has a opening for air, not sure if i will utilize it yet.

Your turbo manifold is going to benefit from that vent, sidewinders get pretty damn hot.
Yea reason why i got the hood with opening in the middle it will be almost right by the sidewinder to supply it with fresh air.

Wiring is coming along great, re-looming all the wires from truck to front and all wiring from bay to hood, Took me couple hours to pull out old knuckles on the rear, right side one bolt froze and was a bitch getting it cut out, torched it, pounded crap out of it and nothing lol, use a sawzall 3 blades later damn thing is out, got to just test fit the new rsx type s rear knuckles and they fit perfect,

I got new rotors and calipers on the way and got already new hubs, will replace all new bushings and this time put some anti seize on the damn bolts for easy removal.
Got the rsx knuckles from junk yard both left and right for $100, new they will run for $260 each, he gave me the sensors as well.
