For tires look around for Jeep Wrangler stock takeoffs ( all generations). I know for a fact they are often left behind at the shop when they go bigger.

I plan on it and a cage if I keep going. We will see how it goes Sunday.

Thanks, lowest buck car I've ever done! Cant wait to see it on the track. Cool part is this is something my wife and kid can do too.

Like I said to Anthony, If this weekend goes well I'll be willing to go a bit more into fixing it up.

What a day! I'll have a video done this week, but to summarize...
rubbed a hole in the power steering line first run and the rest of the day was spent with little to no power steering. My arms are sore, there's sand in places I didn't know I had, and I had the best time behind a wheel in my entire life yesterday! I've got a month till the next event, I have to fix the steering again, replace the drivers seat and seat rack, gut the interior, and a few other things I can't remember right now. But wow, I'm still grinning.

Ditch the power steering. There are ways to make the rack work better without power assist and you won't need to deal with that bullshit again.

IT's a private group that puts it on. It's $10 a person to get in and free to run. unlimited runs at that.

Man I don't want to put the money into it yet to do a good manual rack that can handle the quick steering I need to do.
I'm just going to replace the line that got cut and make sure it can't happen again.

Did this on a BMW and mustang. One of the best mod decision I did to a track car.

GIANT PICTURE WARNING! lol
I really just can't get enough of looking at this car. By the way anyone have a spare racing bucket seat laying around? I need to replace the drivers seat and seat track before the next race on the 19th.

Did the paint layout smooth or end up like plastic dip texture?

More like a plastidip. But I wasn't trying to go smooth. the cars so rough I wanted the semigloss look to hide the flaws. My buddy's honda came out way better because he took the time to make the coats thinner and buffed it a little.


Here's the picture of the Honda, HUGE PICTURE WARNING! I left the picture full size so you can see the finish better.
