It looks interesting, but definitely needs to be painted and fitted. It's hard to see the 'vision' when they're obnoxious blocks of plastic. A set of gold curb feelers would really set it apart from any other 245...just a thought

I too have been fallowing this build for a while, i like everything you have done with it.

I have a question, what fender flares are those?

Like the choice on the side skirts, they flow with the body style. That's a plus, its gangster a$$ fluck.

Why not fit a VL turbo style diff into the car? Better ratio and LSD options, or a 8 3/4 diff. Since the engine and rest of the car is changed so much seems silly to not change this for something easier to work with!

I haven't had any problems with my rear end really, just want to shorter rear end and coilovers with strut tops. A lot less custom then doing vl swap.

I would not call it good looking by any stretch, but I love your follow through. It's such an intense vehicle. Everywhere you look is a new "wtf" moment(in a good way). Awesome.
