Default LPE body kit progress



I bet itís been almost a year since I started the instal on my car. I did post some pictures way back when.
i am happy to say itís almost installed. I am told the last remaining problem is getting the nose piece to line up with the inner fenders. I finally found the right shop to do the work. I am just thrilled to get this done.
The next move is to have the engine gone through and all the mechanicals checked,replaced and or fixed.

beautiful !!! Have you talked to Jerry (of Jerry's gaskets fame) He has an LPE aero body and might be able to give you some tips!

as for the engine, time for the hp to do the body justice

Thanks for the compliment.
Jerry has offered to help me. I am sure I will need more parts from him as work begins under the hood. I already need a couple wilwood bolts that are on back order. I am hoping for minor part searches to get this finished.
The car made the trip to LPE 20 plus years ago. It’s been sitting and needs a through going through as a insurance policy.
i am thinking of getting the secondaries removed during the process.
Then it’s time for paint and finally the interior. By that time I will be tooo afraid to even drive the car and get a nick or god forbid a scratch.��
