Default Wire Tuck / Shave / Turbo S2000 AP2

It's been a loooong progress, but here's the photos in no particular order.

It all started with needing the turbo rebuilt for the shop S2000, so while that was off we decided to tackle the cosmetics. Unfortunately we did not know that the paint was so frail under the hood, and when pulling the harness out for the wire tuck everything got all scratched up making it look worse than before. Thus, starting the full shave project.

AP2 Full Race Turbo Kit
-Relocated Battery
-Relocated Fuse Box
-Relocated EPS Harness
-Relocated Hornsx2
-Custom A/C Lines, Relocated others
-Custom Brake Line
-Relocated HID Ballast and Harness
-Relocated Fluid Washer
-Relocated Wiper Assembly Harness
-Relocated Dash Harness through Firewall
-Relocate secondary fuse box main line
-Relocate headlight grounds
-Extend many many wires (uggh)
-Delete Hood Prop
-Delete Fuse Box Mounts
-Delete Horn Mounts
-Weld 98 Holes shut, Fill, Shave and add addtl metal where needed

Here's the car as of today...Blocked and Ready for first of 4 base primer coats. I was a bit late on the progress because I welded in 2 additional gussets to the corner of the engine bay, and 1 lower support brace. It's functional and stronger than before.
No brake line, and 0 wires visible.

Not sure, I basically have to put the whole car together if I want to go, and it's not even painted yet haha.
It's been about a month and a half since I started working on the car, seems like longer.

It looks like you have done a lot of work. I can't wait to see it done. What are you doing with the other side?


How's business been lately?
