No, I meant its a true test of the medical patients I oversee. I have no patience for these patients. Lol

Both actually, the parts that are severely damaged will be used to pull from, putting the internal structures back in alignment. The car will then recieve its donor parts.

That is the one! If i had to do it again i would buy used OEM parts lol but oh well.

Long road is ok, ive been building mine for 4 years now. Off and on but have enjoyed the process the whole way.

Cant wait to see to progress on yours.

Geez, that's a pretty nasty smash. I don't have any doubt it's in capable hands though, anyone with the SHG seal of approval does things right.

How hard is it going to be to source R-specific parts? It looks like you may have to do the rear wheel well and shock tower as a new part - and if I remember correctly from all my reading during my Type R fanboy days (let's be honest, those days aren't over), Honda welded two of those panels on top of each other on the ITRs to improve rigidity. I may be wrong about that, though.

Anyway, these deep threads are always a treat.

Loving all the support for SHG in here!! I too can't wait to see her start to come together. I've known Seamus a few years now And he's had the car pretty much the whole time. I know how much it means to finally be making progress and I'm happy as hell for him and the car!

He needs to update this already!!

It has proven very hard to find R-specific parts, but its not required in the areas I am replacing and i will be reusing the lower control arm center mount beam area which is the only portion that is type R specific. I had thought I read this somewhere as well but as I've seen the car come apart and after close inspection it is proving to be the same thickness and quantity. No double panels. No thick strut towers. Only the rear lower beam. I wasnt even able to purchase a type R specific quarter as Dan (allmotordan) had purchased the last one in the country. Ive had to settle for a gsr quarter panel and shave the moulding holes, which is fine because im shaving the antenna hole as well.
