    lots of work today!!!!

    there's a huge difference between a building a track car and full out race car. Windows get removed, interior is stripped, a/c is gone, unnecessary wiring is removed etc....
    we're welding in the door bars, so to go backwards would take a bit of clean up.

    For a minute, I almost came to reality and "almost" hesitated, but I knew it was the right thing to do for the goals we have for the Noble Brand. In the back of my mind, I know how much money I've invested into this car, I just don't want to say it, but I know my house would have been WAY bigger. I've never daily driven the car, maybe a few times, but it's more of a track weapon mentality that I have. Maybe, I can pretend that I'm Crew Chief for some DP Team or something. Gotta start somewhere???!

    rotors.jpgnewbrakesinstalled.jpggutteddoors2.jpggutteddoors.jpg

    installing new brake rotors and doors gutted.

    One thing about gutting doors, I know we could put it all back together, but probably not (having a moment again, WTH am I doing!!!)
    On the driver side, we might cut the inner door skin out and make a nascar style bar for ease of entry and maintenance. I didn't go with the swing door bars, although they passed tech. inspection, I don't want to prolong the process due to any unforseen technicalities.
