OK...it's official - Coupe#397 is graduated!

Today's the day!

Finished the Texas assembled vehicle titling process and am damn happy to have that ordeal behind me. So Coupe #397 is officially graduated (can't say "done" because there's always another tweak, mod, upgrade to do) but its now 99.5841% finished (approximately) and it's road legal, Just in time for the 2009 Houston Cobra Club rally this weekend.

Below are a few pics from the track time at TWS a few weekends ago; I've finished many remaining odds and ends since then, but these shots are still representative of how the car turned out.

Thanks to all for the amazing build stories (that I robbed inspiration and ideas from), the countless good advice and suggestions I found in this forum, and the general sense of community in the entire group. Looking forward to staying connected and continuing the process.










Cheers,

Nice job indeed!

FFR really needs to make a roll-up window option for these cars.
