Yep carbon/kevlar doors too.

The doors save alot of weight! Way more than I expected. My old doors have the cross beam removed and as much of the sheet metal on the front removed. The new doors have polycarbonate windows that dont roll down, this helps on weight too. The total weight saved per door is a bit over 34 pounds!

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Wiseco is sponsoring my new MAPerformance engine build by supplying buck wild custom hp pistons/rings/wigged out TP1 coated pins!

Also, I just finished painting the interior and cage. Super pumped how it turned out! I used paint code mixed cans and 2 part 2k clear coat in a can. Very easy to get great results! I also used carbon tube protectors to protect the paint.







Looking forward to a great season!

Looks amazing. You going to run their new rods too? Or maybe you run aluminum ones, I forget.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Little teaser of the project. It's coming along nicely! The interior is complete now! I need to repaint the side mirror deletes, work on some side trim, and determine if I'm going to cut out an intercooler opening. It's going to be an awesome day when I get it all wrapped up! This was the largest winter project I've taken on.

Looks like all the carbon stuff fits well! You have outdone yourself as usual, have you already weighed it?

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

First off, thanks guys! This is going to be a building year for me, with so many changes.

The new chassis work is almost done. I had a problem with trim with the carbonetics fenders, the factory trim would not work. (Even with significant mods)



I learned that I needed to use Eclipse rear trim to eliminate the the eagle talon side/rocker trim. So fast forward, I removed the trim and it uncovered a rust spot on the passenger side and a big dent on the drivers side. I patched in new steel on the passenger side. This sucked, and was a good for me to learn body work...i also patched the holes for the trim mounting locations.









What is crazy is this was all done with custom paint mixed and 2k clear cost aerosol cans!

I also cutout the intercooler opening, I was unwilling to keep the front end closed off after research on the benefit. I built air guides on the intercooler to match the bumper profile.







Super pumped to get this project wrapped up and get it down the track!

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Just noticed your hood pins. I was thinking about doing those for various pieces on my car.

What are your thought so far about them. Granted your using them to hold your hood, so that definetly says something by itself at the speeds you run.
