Man those vids.. talk about living on the edge of the properties of the tires! That's nuts... nothing like driving today with the computers controlling everything..

Explain more about this silicone bronze welding that was done, as I know nothing about that.. what is it and why use it?

I will have to ask him again. It made all the sense in the world at the time but it's been a while since I discussed it with him.

Here is a before and after of the engine bay with everything shaved, seam welded, smoothed etc. It's really hard to fully understand and notice all the work that went into this engine bay. So many holes welded including all access holes (which were put on the outside), tab mounts, wiring pass through etc. Anything that gets run through the firewall will get milspec bulkhead connectors. The wiring/electrical is going to be a main feature of the car. Very clean with many of the components relocated to the back of the car and displayed. All seams fully welded and just about all non smoothed/symmetrical irregularities for mounting etc were cut out and replaced with new metal. It will still be final sanded, primed again and then base/clear. The car is being mocked up now for final color!
