Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

The new V2 hood I'd almost as heavy as my stocker based on picking each one up. The V1 hood I could pick up with 1 finger.

Takes 2 hands to move the V2.


Also as an off topic side note - a local dsmr.. just picked up a noble last week. I shared you're build page. He's hoping for a fall event at CMP, i plan to join him assuming my car is good to go (new pick up time is now this sunday once again)

Ah nice. Tell him on the noble forum they organize a noble event every year at CMP.

Edit: on the hood, why the hell is the v2 so heavy? Seems like a waste of carbon part that could weigh a fraction of stock.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Not sure why it is so heavy. I don't own a scale but thinking I might get a cheap one just to compare all 3.

Update on the car. Finally got some pictures of in progress of my seat mount mods for the car.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

For reference the Halo section of the seat, when I remove the cushion from the seat that section runs right under my eyes when I sit in the seat. Should give me the clearance I need for being 6'4"

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

So although my car was supposed to be ready months ago. Progress is still progress I guess. Got these photos of him installing my Jay racing relocation kit. As well as pictures of my suspension and subframe bushings installed this week, and other parts finally.

However I'm worried he's chopped the hell out of my frame and may have ruined it between my fender braces and my seat mount work he did.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

You can see here he changed his mind on the way he did the seat mount. Went from one piece of metal to several. Said he had issues with the exhaust clearance with the single sheet. And now he's telling me he has to brace the seat mount becuase it flexs when you sit in the seat

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

The upper rail braces don't look bad, I wonder if they are going to cause your doors to sit further out being it will have an additional layer behind the hinges? Those floor cut outs he's doing would make me a bit nervous as well.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

The fender braces have been around for years. And I haven't read anything about clearance issues yet. So not to worried about that.

I am worried about the circular holes he did however rusting.

Just missed a killer event at cmp on Tuesday
6-9pm $20. Was an event to try and get people interested in road racing.

Last Saturday missed the shootout.

Weekend before that there was an evo/sti/dsm event at a local shop.


But yes I can't wait to get it back. My front upper control arms from bobbys group buy will be here monday.

I still have to decide on which rims to go with.
(Trying to stick around a 275-285 tire)
Enkie rpf1 17x10+18
Enkie rpf1 18x10.5 +15
Cosmis xt206r - 18x9.5 +10
Cosmis xt206r - 18x11 +8
Cosmis xt006r - 18x9.5 +10
Cosmis xt006r - 18x11 +8

I think the 18x11 +8 will be to wide for my fender flares but not 100% sure.

And ithe show side of me just can't seem to stop coming back to the cosmis wheels.. black with polished lip (22lbs)

The eclipse is the 18x11 but I think he has like a 245 tire or something if I remember correctly

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well filed a claim with paypal about my side skirts. Since Sergio hasn't responded since July 27th. When he said he was going to ship them put the next day.

The guy at paypal didn't seem to listen to me however. I told him I only needed the refund for the side skirt's ($270+shipping)
But he put in claims for all my transactions for Sergio. And gave him till sept 19th to respond or I get all of it back which isn't right as the rest was ok.
