Just a small update on the progress. At the beginning of the build I wanted to get it low with just a few minor adjustments to the suspension, using a small set of custom rims but after a few mock ups I decided to follow the advice of my good friend “Mad Slammer” and use the wheels and tires you see below.

I have a few other options that can bring it low to the ground but the wheels are too small and don’t look right. I am really happy with the stance and the look so now I will move on to painting when the weather gets better. You can also see some assembly on the engine, getting it ready for a few plumbing & wiring details. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
Hi Jeff, The brake rotors came with a Fujimi wheel & tire set I bought a few years ago at a local hobby shop. I don’t remember the kit set part number but if I remember well those kits had the same brake pats tree. The one in the link below is not available but you can use it for reference. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10000938
Hi Skip !!! Thank you very much for your comments, I really appreciate your advice !!! I have done the best I can to make the kit look nice and I am really happy with the results. I was working on the engine wiring yesterday so hopefully I will add more progress later this week.
