    Trailered my 3 year project to the DMV recently. Should have a VIN number in a few weeks. Working on body panels,windscreen, mirrors, and fenders now. Will be hitting the streets legally in a few weeks now! IMG_1917.JPG IMG_1918.JPG

    Love it at first sight!
    Wanna trade it for a Slingshot? :)

    And where is the compressor for that turbo?

    looks like it would be a challenge to get in and out of that thing. But still looks pretty damn cool. Why even bother with any panels at all?

    It's 81" wide, I'll measure the wheel base tomorrow. Engine is a K Series Honda, not sure of the total cost thus far, but it's quite reasonable.

    Good eye Otter! The CHRA and compressor is packed away for now. Didn't want to have to do the exhaust twice. Running it normally aspirated for now, then I will install the turbo components, run the plumbing, and reprogram the ECU.
