Finished GTM502 late 2019...Lots of fun! Did all of the work myself except for the final white and clearcoat. Located in Central Florida, working at Kennedy Space Center for 35 years. Doesn't quite compare to the rockets we launch!

Just about done with the reincarnation of the original gold GTM that was built by Gary Cheney. Long story, but it is now a widebody and has a brand new paint along with many other upgrades. It will be in the 2021 calendar that TazRules does.

SN 047 picked it up about 1 1/2 years ago, the build was started but never finished. I made a few changes as you can see. I had lots of fun building it, now starting the registration process.........

Did NONE of the work myself (I wouldn't fly or drive anything I built). Bought the car 5 years ago with custom wing, and it was pretty stock. You can see it as bought,

here.

Then I added a more functional wing-

Decided to try my hand at some autocross and road track, but knew some improvements were needed. Lighter wheels, bigger brakes, front end sway bar, collapsible steering column, etc...the usual.

You made some awesome changes to that car! Looks way better now. What seats did you get? Any pics of them?

Gosh darn, the car is in the shop, and I don't remember the seat type. I will say though that the driver's side is currently bolted to the floor pan
to give better clearance between my helmet and roof. I have a B2 Apex helmet which gives me the best clearance.

Also I am having new fuel cells fabricated because I was getting some leaks like others on this forum. Fittings were going bad also.
