This is going to be exciting.  

Between X71, F-DAT, and LMP360 the Midwest is really stepping our game up for bad ideas.  We have created a veritable Bermuda triangle of Bad Decisions..

Also that cozy coupe looks amazing.

I'm glad I moved, I was damn near dead-center in the middle of that. Oh, who am I kidding - I'd gladly help out all you guys!

Ironically enough, CB is within the boundary of the Triangle as well...

I’m in need of a header panel....

I will send you an email tonight to work on details, but Bob is heading south in a few weeks and Pete Gossett says he is willing to assist in a parts relay to you.

Hey! Thanks. Just replied... we will definitely get together. Might have to make a road trip to indy before the snow flies!

Re-assume the position! 


Header panel removed for 03Panther in exchange for some bits and bobbles that will become important later in the build


 

Bumper cover set aside. Starting a pile for a potential second deal at a later date when transporting bulky items is simpler.

If anyone is interested in smaller, shippable items(tail lights, window motors, wiper transmission, mirrors, etc), let me know!

Was wondering when I'd see a build thread pop up. Wish I was closer to help. But it is in fact a 2.5 day cannonball each direction. 
 

I guess the pressure is on for me to get back to challenge next year. Gotta see this.

Why do you want to show Bob up with a race?  Cause you know he'll have a Korean car.

When you start working on the tube-chassis, can you please detail your thought-process and technique?  I've never done a roll cage and I'm very interested in how a pro would approach a job like this.

Nice to see "my" header panel sittin' all pretty on the bench! And Looking forward to seeing the upcoming chassis mods.

I am also interested in a left taillight, if it can still make the first trip. And the cup holder assembly. Or next order, is fine too.

Scott, I think this thread contains all of the cage related info you’d ever want to read.

I like that you have a tiny helicopter drone on your work bench.  For any drone-related tasks you might require.

That and the off-brand Playboy bunny stickers.  Good haul there.

The chopper, the bunny stickers, and the DVD were all kinda wtf finds in this car. Maybe if the DVD will play we can learn whether that says Plus Love, or Plug Love

At least we know why there is a change shortage....

 

edit, the new blower motor found in the back seat isn't even for a MGM

Those bunny stickers remind me of the ones kids would put on their skin before going into the tanning bed way back in the 80's.
