Decreased the engine bay, power washed (heated) sanded and primed all the bare metal. I'm going to prime the whole engine bay and paint in the up coming weeks. Really happy how looking.

Nice work. Did you consider filling in holes you won't need anymore or rerouting wiring etc?

I'll will cover a few holes. Going with a Holley dominator mounted to passenger floor, for my engine management, so I need to route the wiring harness through somewhere.

Hey guys my bmr adjustable upper a-arms came in. Where on back order for a while. I now finally have every suspension part for this car. It's now time to paint and start putting her back together. I do still need to order my coil-overs, just waiting on getting a final curb weight. Going to try to get this car right around 2800 lbs.

Who has a strictly track 4th gen and what are you weighing in at? I know there many variables but the car is 3300 lbs stock. 500 lbs shaved off seems reachable considering I've removed all seats , stock suspension, stock metal bumpers, gutted dashboard, stock brakes, removed misc junk from engine bay
