Update> Damien's build finally pretty much done...and new project underway

Here's some photos for XDC/HIN preparations, had to install the Z33 transmission and a couple of other things to get the TF14 ready for the event.
Now that we have have the HIN/ XDC wrapped up its time to focus on the 510. This project I'm kind of torn between two options; to fully re-upholstery the interior or cage the 4 door. I originally purchased the Dime with 4 doors in hopes of filling the car with friends and cursing the AZ freeways and local car events. Now I realize how petite the Dime frame is and though it's a good idea it's unlikely that the sedan will be full on a regular basis. So as for now we are focusing on the necessary steps to continue progression. Later I'll decide the paint scheme and the direction of the interior. So far SR20 has been removed, Dime has been stripped, and mid mount has been mounted for clearance. This weekend we planed to media blast the bare shell. Yes taking the entire car to bear metal will create more work but if you want do it right..... Do it right the first time! Progress this week. -Damien
