Custom box to replace spare tire well
Custom fabrication and wiring

 We had a few solid days of wrench time in this month and the car is starting to take shape.  The spare tire well was cut out of the trunk and Cal & Bunny bent up some sheet-metal to make a new box that was better suited for a race car.  One Friday night we pulled a late-nighter and Andy, Jeff and Bunny all came over for some late night wrenching where we got a lot of fabrication and wiring done.  Check out the post for more pics.

Spare tire well was cut out

Cal cut out the spare tire well and got some sheet-metal to replace it with.  You can also see the Team-Z chomemoly coil-over support that was welded in place as well as the coilover brackets that were welded on the axle tubes.  We've been weighing parts as we take them off and replace them with light weight components, I think we've taken around 150 lbs out of the car with things we've either eliminated or replaced, but usually replaced.
