Default It is done...

Exocet ordered. Going with white panels, should look sharp!

Here's to 10+ weeks waiting for it to ship after being built.

Sweet! Wish I had the extra time for a project like that.

That's going to be retarded fun to play with.

For anyone interested, here's where I bought mine from:
https://www.flyinmiata.com/exocet/

They'll donate to Heifer International if you buy anything > $5k from them, and they're freakin' awesome as tech support. I bought my turbo kit (no electronics) from them and they had no problem advising me on tuning my Megasquirt ECU.

Woah. Chassis number 205 is mine! Going into welding next month, shipping by month end.

Holy shit! They said 10+ weeks before hearing anything, and now...before July!

One of the first things I noticed as well. Very nice for future upgrades.

10 weeks will feel like an eternity brutha.

Congrats

I would highly suggest using a tap in every single tapped hole to make sure the threads are good before you do anything else to it. A stray welding bb or a burr could have a bolt jam in a hole.

I know they are a good company but "shit happens" in the manufacturing process

I'm pretty sure most of the holes are for rivets, but I'll definitely chase all the threads before assembly!

Also, got the seats/harnesses/brackets ordered. Corbeau Forza seats, silver 5 point camlocks, and double locking sliders. They don't break the bank, but they're FIA rated.

Interesting. I had no idea such a thing existed. Will it be street legal?
