Quasi Updates

Thought I would share a few post-build updates I am doing. Some slight adjustments to improve current things. Some all-out new ideas.

First up, STi seats replace the Momo's for better comfort on the way to distance car shows (since they all seem to be distant despite living in the largest city in the South). Wrenchnride gets credit for some bada$$ fab work on the seat rails to narrow them enough.

Also, No_H2O helped out by cutting up the engine compartment for some carb access panels. I still have some finishing work to do, but man is it going to be nice having that access to mixture screws, manifold bolts, plugs, etc.

Lastly, the apron. My BAS sat so close to the apron that it burnt right through commercial airplane heat shielding. It also made getting the engine in and out with the header still on a real pain. The answer? Cut it out of the way. I just didn't want to go the route of a removal apron or whole rear. This solves the problem and when the SS grill being fabbed for the coverup is in place, should look quite unique (interpret that by your liking when you see it...i am OK with love it / hate it).
