    Does that apply to wrapping the car as well?

    In a way, yes. I have a clearbra on the front end of the car and it has been invaluable.

    That is the # 17 SEMA display GT4. There are 2 GT4 ‘s getting ready for 24 hours Daytona.

    While nobody is looking, please steal a GT4 hood for me.

    Shhhh! Don't tell anybody!

    The hood on the #17 SEMA display car is not CF. The vents are SLA prototype on a stock hood. It will be hung on a wall.

    I received more photos from KhoR last night. Cage is moving along.

    Curious to see if they use the same mounting points in the trunk as they do on the 4 point cage??

    I’ll post more photos when I pick it up. In the mean time, I purchased Nicks extra shifter. [​IMG]

    I haven’t missed shifts with the stock one. My 2011 GT shifter was crappy and needed the MGW. The GT350 stock one is much better. I’m curious about how much improvement is in the MGW

    I cut off the top half of the rear bumper support. Total weight reduction is just over 7 lbs. Tig welded the top of the bar after cutting it. [​IMG][​IMG]
