I've been trying to plan a way to use the factory saddle tank by adding hydramat and a .5 gallon surge tank but I think a fuel cell would be safer and more reliable way to go.  There is a ton of room in the rear seat area and I'd like to keep the cell in front of the rear axle and within the area of the cage.  I know @red0 's civic was set up but I never got a change to see it.  I can't help but geek out over @mcoppola's set up that he posted over in another thread.   I'd love to see if anyone else has a similar setup to what I'm trying to accomplish.

@hcsi99  everything I've seen about your car build looks top-notch. I'd be glad to help out or answer any questions you might have. Thanks! And great job! Can't wait to see this car in person.

My first attempt at body work.  I'm happy with how it turned out.

Paint is on!  Dove Gray from Restoration Shop.  Looks good for a race car.

You are putting so much into this awesome build I'm going to be crushed when one of the...uhh...less than reputable/experienced/careful drivers/teams in Champ barrels into you and drags their car from the rear quarter to the front door. ☹️ Hint: stay off the track if you see the blue/orange #987 Boxster on the entrant list.

All the body panels are back on the car, headlights, tail lights are in, rear subframe installed, pedals are installed, and some radiant heat shielding has been installed.  We are working on assembling the front subframe and suspension so that we can get some wheels and tires on the car.  Fuel cell cage is on the drawing board and will be started on soon.
