Keep the updates coming - two questions come to mind, target weight (if any) and what are your weight bias expectations with moving cooling to the rear of the car?

Target weight is as light as possible (2800-2900 LBS.?) Weight bias expectations: Unless I got this wrong I believe that stock is 57 F 43 R hoping to get 54 F 46R . 50/50 would be nice but even the Works cars with all the stuff they had in the trunk are nose heavy as far as I know. Hoping to run bigger tire up front to help the heavy nose.

Made some angle frames for the rad intakes on the inside of the car and welded them in place. Also made mates for these frames with nuts on the backside and after these where bolted in the car started to connect the dots.

I hope you’re planning on putting a more powerful engine in it, ‘cause it’s gonna be a sloth! Unless you’re just going for looks, it’s great. Isn’t it a cute lil fella?!?!

Looks great, I thinks that’s a realistic target. Your only technically adding a few strips of metal to the fenders and then the rear cooling work.
