Sorry for the quality of the pictures but the camera was broken when we started this project ...

Lets do some wires tucking. ;)







Well I decided to cut the floor in the hatch and fab a new floor to put my battery box. It also save weight, remove 18 lbs and my new flor is 2.5 lbs. :cool:







Better be safe when you cut this floor ! ;) Don't forget to watch the gaz filler hose that pass near where I had to cut ...

So how did you weld the new floor to the back part of the hatch? Did you bend it up and weld or rivet?
It looks cool, I guess but to save 16lbs, meh. Not worth it IMO.

I was gonna do the same to my GVR4, but becuase of the contours on the VR4 trunk, I decided against it.

Looking good.

Nice start to what I'm sure will be a great build thread.
Thanks Steve, will do my best I promise. :D

I will use rivets to hold the new floor since it's in aluminium ... Well 16 lbs is not bad at all I think and it also looks awesome with the battery box on it. ;)

Ok, so it is in a garage in Canada and you are removing some stuff.

What parts or work is going into the car?
Plans when its done?
Hp Goals?
1/4mile goals?
Where did you get the car and how long have you had it? More info please.
The car will have a new exterior and interior paint and some serious body work. I don't really know when I'll be done with this project but it's going on it's way. :rolleyes:

The story of my DSM:
I got the car 3 years ago with 90 000 miles on it. The car was bone stock and not really good looking ... Well not good looking at all. :eek:

Anyway my T25 blew last summer so I put an evo3 with a SSaC fmic but now I'm hitting fuel cut ... Time for DSM-Link. I don't want to list all the new parts I have to install because I can't remember everything I bought ... ;)

Hp Goals? Well I will let the dyno tell me my whp when I'll be done but I want to be in the 400whp for sure.

Stay tuned
