    edwardb,

    The main thing we are keeping the same as what was on the prototype but different from the manual is where the wiring comes into the cabin. We are using the prototype as a good reference and then trying to improve on it. The rear is completely different as the prototype was a 3 link verse the reincarnated car has IRS. As far as the sway bar manual I didn't see that manual we just installed it the way everything fit. I'm not sure it there is a reason that you would need to cut them. With them longer the angle isn't that extreme and if something is able to "hit" it you have a problem with how close it is to the wheels. I think you would have to be driving over a curb or something of the sort to hit the sway bar.

    AMSigurd,

    I hadn't given much thought to splitting the brakes apart. The 818 was a single reservoir and we didn't have any brake issues.

    Thanks for the support everyone!

    Ok I'm getting the hang of this photo album. Got a few more pics. We installed quite a few of the interior panels. We are waiting on an e-brake mounting part before we mount the large trunk panel and the rest of the center console. Someone speak now if we will run into any issues installing all the panels before the motor and trans are installed. We have all the wires and tubing that will run through the tunnel ran. Secondly the cab side panels are installed as well. I couldn't see any reason to wait on these. I want all the panels installed sooner then later so that I can paint the lizard skin before putting on the body or even the wiring in.

    Nice progress and absolutely beautiful build! This is making me even more anxious for my coupe to show up.

    It seems like the more time I go between updates, that harder it is to capture it all. So I got the fuse box mount made and mounted. As I mentioned before the panel above is secured with rivetnuts and 10-32 screws. Got the brake reservoir fully plumbed and the ebrake installed. After Wayne’s suggestion I made the center trans panel removable with rivetnuts. The wiring is in the car just not fully routed, plugged in or secured. The engine is in the car though we did find another change from the prototype. The new frame requires a spacer kit that modifies the motor mount while the proto had none. Also the transmission mounting bracket was quite different. I want to note that Factory Five has been great about getting me the required parts when I find things like this. We knew things like this would pop up as unknown variables. After the engine was in we taped up the interior and painted it with to coats of Lizard skin sound and thermal insulation each. I didn’t do the back of the car on first coat as I was afraid of running out. I did do the back with both coats of thermal. So I can say it takes a little under two gallons of Lizard skin Sound and two gallons of Lizard skin thermal to cover the inside of a Daytona. For those who wanted to know.
