Thanks for the props Dr. Boost

See you all have to remember everything on the car was done at home, including the paint and body work. The spoiler was custom fit, the side skirts flared out and the hood was altered.

crxrx7,

Yes its an aftermarket hood but I made the "eyelids" that your referring to.

I wont post all the progress pics of that but here is basically how i did the eyelid. I cut into the hood and put plexi glass in it and cut it where i wanted it. Then I reinforced it with a fiberglass filler.

If any of you want you can see the whole progress of the car in my msn group. there is a turbo project folder as well as a "sunfire progress" folder with all the bodywork

Anyways my msn group is here: http://groups.msn.com/JbodyStuff/shoebox.msnw

Oh and stealthmode, be nice...considering your one of my sponsors and all, sheesh

thank god its a DOHC ld9 !? those are crap! IMO anyways. My best friend has a 99 z24 and the dealer has rebuilt his motor 7 times, 3 of which they decided on a new showblock instead!! every 900KM it throws rod bearings! Ever heard of anything like this?

99 2.4, manual trans, from what i've read it doesnt happen to autos, lucky there huh airtonics!
