A few more older pics so of the car showing slow progress:
TOM'S pedals and oil cap.

Interior shot with the cracked dash the car came with.

99th and Northern meet, carbon fenders and Racing Heat rims.

First Radiator mount and old open ITB setup.

Side shot showing a dust plate/heat plate I made down at work.

JDM BUMPAAAAA

Yes I ziptied my carbon fenders on  :P

One last shot for the night.  A nice memory of a "Car Show" Woody and I went to.  I was the ONLY import there.  Now I know how a black man in Alabama feels.

Your X-slotted/drilled broked?  Ruhroh
"I'm fat and he's Asian.  Crazy food is bound to come up in conversation."
      "wait, am I the Asian?!"
"yeah bro.  Yeah, I think so."
      "I'm white!"
"visually, yes.  But so is Takumi Fujiwara."

Yes....  You are an expert

I hope those tires are for the new wheels (although I thought they already had tires).  Or did you get rid of them already?

These tires are to run in the front on my 2 Longchamps and whatever other 14x7s I decide to mount them on.  The 535s on my 15x9s are still holding up just fine.

Hahaha yes it is.  Welded in my side plates for my harness bar.  I will take the bar down to work and cut it to size tomorrow.  Also wired up my Defi Link control unit tonight.  Just waiting for my oil sandwich plate to arrive so I can hook up the sensors.

I like this pic so I shall throw it in here as well as some more updates:

Defi Link unit along with oil pressure and temp gauges are all wired in and worked great on the track. 
Waiting to hear back from a guy and I will be purchasing water temp, EGT and a tachometer.  The set comes with an extra defi link unit if anyone wants it. 
Also before the next NASA event at Firebird I should have a Mishimoto radiator in as well as an oil cooler setup.
