Chances are good, Ian is going to make a Westfield using an NB doner. Perhaps this build thread will give him even more inspiration :-)

The car is done. More or less. We installed the exhaust heat shield, mirrors, seats, license lights, front fenders, driveshaft, coilovers, and windshield, plus a few finishing touches like fender guards and a grill badge. We've taken it out for a couple of drives and it's pretty fantastic if I say so myself. Fast and light. Can't wait to get it registered. It still needs an alignment, corner weighting, and better tires, but it's already a lot of fun just the way it is.

That's incredible, Nick! Congrats on an amazing job! I really can't wait to see this car in person.

Quick update. I got the car inspected by the CHP last week and registered it at the DMV today. Still have to smog and get the brakes and lights tested, but I also got an SB100 smog exemption certificate today, so that should go well.

I could actually bring this thing to the next meet. If it's not freezing.
