    Made a cap that meets adr requirements. Swamp garage came through with a bonnet, but I still need to find him one to replace it. I cut the roof out of the sa63 I had in the yard for a sheetmetal source. Worked out great! I will get it all signed off before I worry about painting it.

    Made my TRD knob legal by cutting a std H pattern into it myself. The H I did with a hacksaw, then I did the alphanumerics by heating some metal stamping letter dies with MAP gas and then melting them in. I stretched some plastic over it for masking then soaked it with acrylic paint. I then buffed it down in a drill. It worked out fucking awesome! Made a nutsert based mounting system for the reverse cowl, which has already been dubbed the Pentagon of power.

    So Ive got it off defect last Friday. Steven came through with a bonnet under some duress, and I was able to hand make a 'Pentagon of Power' as its been dubbed already. Basically a small reverse cowl to give me a legal bonnet design. Im super happy with how it turned out, especially considering its 100 percent hand made with me, a nibbler, the roof off the rusty sa63 in the yard, the welder, and hammer and dolly. Took 2 arvos to make and one more arvo to prep to the stage its at now. I need to buy more high build primer and body sealer to finish its painting and to refiish the bonnet as well.

    Also redid the roll cage padding with black padding, and did a much neater job than before.

    Took a drive up to Mt Mee to shake it down. Went well, aside from the shocking state of the road up from Dayboro and the traffic you end up following.

    Thanks Bazz. I guess I needed a push to make it happen for the bonnet. I know the ae86 purists will be pleased. However the AE86 purists often havent come to term with the fact that in the Japanese car scene, anything goes!

    All jokes aside, Im very happy with this now, and Im off to SCA to buy some body sealer to tidy up the bonnet a bit better.
