Nice work Tim ... Love the fact your restoring most parts rather than replacing .. Going to take it to Pebble beach in August ?

That's fantastic! If I recall you posted in the SVT Performance site chronicling the build and racing of your '00 R? If so, that build was incredible and I'm sure this build will also be top notch. Congrats and all the best!
Yes that was me , still got the 2000R , hope to get it to the track this year , I have running the Boss 302S the last couple of years

Gerry mounted the tail light panel , added some some support rods and bonded in the brackets that hold the lower portion of the panel .
Still have to install the inner fender panels and mount the rear bumper

I ordered the factory door weatherstrip and we modified it to fit around the cage , turned out nice and the door fit is good.

Car is looking great Tim. Looks like it's been quite a project. Can't wait to see you get it on the track and fully sorted as I'm sure it's going to be a heck of a race car
