Thank you for the advice on posting pics . . . these are the early candid shots (not the more professional ones) but I think they highlight our ECP color selection. What a great day . . . somewhat overwhelming.
Congratulations on a wonderful delivery day. Car is stunning. May I ask what the name of the color is called and what manufacturer (car brand) it came from, being it's ECP? The sun reflecting off of it is fantastic and shows how deep the color is. Also, is it a pearl finish?

Beautiful! I love the color combo. It looks like you opted for a leather (unless my eyes are deceiving me) interior also, which I debated on the carbon. I'm usually in the Woodlands for my kids' soccer once a year, I'd love to see it!

No I was in Indiana last weekend and the car is at the clear bra place getting touched up for a car show on the 17th. Sorry to miss you guys.

I did opt for leather even though it is a carbon series GT . . . I just liked the look and durability of the leather option. I thought I could forego dessert on a few meals and make up for the weight penalty compared to the alcantara.

Absolutely beautiful car!

Congratulations.

And thanks for posting the "under construction " pictures. I had not seen that level of detail under the skin- and the more I see, the more impressed I am. We are all so very blessed to be a part of this wonderful experience.

Cheers,

Eddie

Thank you, Eddie. Tomy H posted a great comparison of my 2020 build pic to his 2017 in another thread–really shows the changes made over the three years.

That's AWESOME!
Please tell me that 4 bolts, 2 clamps, 4 quick connects and 4 electrical connectors and everything behind the rear wheels comes off as a unit. Thank goodness tech/reliability is way up from the 60's. Imagine having to work on it as often as the old cars.
Race cars should be fast, look good, and easy to work on. Could you ditch half that stuff and the turbos, install a NA V8, and be as quick? 550HP with 1000# less weight.
Keep the jacks, too cool.
Thanks for posting pics.

Is that a CF sticker / overlay on the plate? That can't be stock--but it looks great!

Texas offers a carbon fiber option on their personalized plates ... it is just painted on.
