    I pay the bills. LOL! If she asks how much I'm spending on the car I always cut it to 1/3 or 1/2. Shhhhhhh, that is our secret.

    So much for my spending plan. My bank just called to confirm the amount to spend on the suspension. Can you say busted! It will be a painful evening.

    The valance is done and now we are looking at a bolt on splitter. It still needs to be narrowed but it sure add a little bit of aggression to the front of the car. I am not sure if I like it or not yet but a few bolts and it is easily removed. 53ce21e600353e4372dc879ece83bd62.jpg

    I have mixed feelings about it but think it will probably look good when sitting on the ground.

    The gel coat is on the front valance. Now on to the grill area. In addition I have also started to look into a radar jammer/detector setup.

    This is going to be so awesome when it's completed, Darreld.

    Do you have renderings done of the car yet?

    LOL! No renderings yet. Been using some on-line renderings of the Vox Volvo 1800 for inspiration. When the car is done I will likely have a rendering done on the Mustang and Volvo though.

    I have been following that build. He is doing a great job integrating the Miata chassis to the Volvo body.

    The work on the grill has progressed nicely this week. The first phase is pretty much fabricated. We are eliminating the chrome grill surround and making it out of sheet metal and round bar. A return flange still has to be made that will pull the grill back further in the opening. We want the egg crate grill to be recessed instead of protruding past the opening like a stock car is. We will also add a chrome surround. It is a little difficult to explain but will make more sense as it progresses.

    Your description is quite clear and I like the plan. Fits very well with everything you have happening. That lower valance is bang on! Turning out great.
