How much more difficult, if at all, is it to get in and out with the lower section of the door permanately in place now? I was just thinking that it looks like it'd be a bit tougher than just swinging your legs out.


Its about like any older corvette (80's-90s') where the sill is about thigh level and you have to slide in over the sill. I am 6'4" and I dont think it will be an issue but it is a little more difficult than factory.

You should have finished that one first just for the sake of coolness. Get it painted to look like stainless steel and tell people its a rare 83 delorean lol.

Does it add reinforcement to the roof for protection in a roll over ?
Or do you think a cage is in order as well ?

I still havenít done a lot with the Gullwing car, I have worked on the sills a little. I am still trying to decide how I want the door lock and latch set up. If I go with electric pulls and just a key lock I am worried about the potential for dead battery and possibly never being allowed on a drag strip.
I have stripped all of the suspension parts and have them ready for paint as well as the poly bushings, this is the second set of poly bushings(I did the yellow car to) and what a pia! I also have some black semi gloss 2 part epoxy for the suspension and under carriage this time. I need a new set of front struts and either a coil over set up or the new D2ís, I would like to go with the D2ís as I have coil overís on the other car and it is harsh.
The big hold up right now is time and I have to quit working on my Yellow car if Iím ever going to finish this one. Jonboy and Kyle both told me 3 years ago if I bought the yellow car it would be the death of this project so I have to prove them wrong  :D  

In regards to the frame reinforcement I think I have plenty, Iím not sure I will even add a roll cage unless I see some flex when Iím finished.
Still havenít decided on an motor and tranny combo yet?? LS2 or Aurora V8 or 1 1/2 JZ are the most likely all of which would be turbo.
Hopefully 2011 will be a better year for this project.

I made some progress this weekend on the car. I have a complete set of D2 coil overs welded painted and ready to install. The suspension is all been epoxy painted with a semi gloss black and red poly bushings. Pictures of that with the installed D2's maybe this week. I installed the new/old motor which is a used 3800 series II SC long block. I bought a intake from a aus holden which will work good with the turbo, it has nice runner length and and each runner has built in velocity stacks. I have a short block ready with forged diamond coated pistons all arp hardware and balnaced and ready to build but im going to get the car running on the motor in the pictures first because i will have lots of tuning to do. I have a T5 transmission that is going in at least for now though I dont think it will hold up long. Most of the guys running turbos on these motors are making stupid amounts of torque in the 500 plus area and a standard T5 wont put up with that long, i will eventually put a Gforce T5 or Astro T5 in good for 500-600ftlbs.
As soon as i get a new welder i will get back to finishing the doors.

I still need to pick wheels and tires and decide on single or twin turbos??

I really want twins just for the visual pop, and theoretically two 16Gs would be a good match and should support 500 crank Hp but im not sure. The hot ticket is a single T67 with most of the buick guys. I wonder if the ebay evo 16's are any good the price is right but i dont want to buy junk.

LOL thats a 20 off my old magnum, i was really thinking about running 20s but the ride will be hideous I havent decided yet but leaning toward 18"s just so i can get the ride height as low as possible.
