    building

    Somebody in town saw me in the 289 and that car at SEMA. The guy had the car for 3.5 years and just started (by somebody else)....I had to take it all apart and start over...everything I touched was not to MY style or finish....the only thing I haven't done yet is pull the motor and the 4 spindles....anyway....who knows...maybe I will one for me. Not sure how I feel building for somebody else

    Erik-

    You have some mad skills! Please share some more of the build. Your 289 was/is legendary. Need a similar GTM fix.

    More please.

    I like that AIM dash too. Looks bright enough to view in full sun. Very cool.

    so ... a little more work today.... doors are hung and fit in the hole....wow wow wow...that was a pain in the you know what!~... rear hatch is in with latch as well. I have to do the hood latch next. After that, install all the poppers and on to the window tracks... RAMLIFT is installed and working great. It's a pretty penny but I think well worth it. I have decided to ditch the roof scoop, but I am going to order a wing from Shane. There is dust everywhere, but here it is again....

    I would have a 2nd over-ride switch for that ramlift to prevent accidental activation at speed! BTW you make me feel like a snail with your build speed, keep it up!

    Nice Job! I have found out that windows on any FFR kit are a challenge, IMO. Can't see any video though for some reason.

    The GTM door windows are the most challenging, and usually consume a large percentage of the time, if you wan them anywhere near "right". The glass shape not match the window opening, IMO, is the first hurdle. From there its slightly down hill.

    Still waiting for the video...

    lol... the windows are pretty tight on the door frame so hopefully not too tight and I can get the seal in there and it stays sealed. I am guessing you leave the windows in for the body work?

    Well actually the window seal problem as been successfully solved.

    Here is RumRunner solution that works very well http://www.ffcars.com/forums/42-fact...gtm-327-a.html

    He drove GTM #327 to last year's open house in the rain, and reported that he didn't have any wind, or water leaks from the windows

    When getting in your car, put your head in first, put your right hand by the shifter or water fall, swing your bum in, bring your right leg in, twist your hips, sit down, then you can bring in your left leg. When getting out lift your bum up, swing your left leg out, twist your hips, bring your right leg out and push out.
    When getting in head in first and when getting out head out last. Kind of like this guy getting out of the Lotus. Then your not trying to bend your next neck past your chest.
