If I consider the fact that i had to remove the engine from the donor car, it took about 15hr of work. Removal and install of the turbo engine in the n/a is pretty simple! The only thing tricky is the wiring harness!

the rear part of the roll-cage is now finished. there was a lot of rust on the driver side floor so I managed to fix this in order to make it look clean! I also removed every air duct from the dash, i'll be using a auxiliary defrost fan for the windshield. with everything removed, the dash shell is very light! i'm still using the front power windows so since the center consol is removed, the window switch will be relocated in the dash where the radio used to be.

this weekend we did the main part of the front part. we did all the welding on the top of the cage in order to put the new roof on. everything should leave for the paintshop on Saturday. it's starting to get warm outside and the snow is melting so i can't wait to take it for a ride!

You can find it in any autopart/body shop. But.....it is expensive! You will pay near 70$ for a 6" tube but damn it's a good product. You have to let it dry for 48h before even touching the glued parts!
