Didn't get around to working on the engine this week so tackled some more work on the body and interior.

Image

Got the engine bay and interior panels painted. Used some left over industrial epoxy paint i had sitting around from an old project that I used to paint a chassis. It called Endura EX-2C and Id highly recommend it for areas that will take abuse, its really tough shit.

Had to get creative with mounting the drive-by-wire setup, what a pain in the ass that was..

Got the cable shift all mounted.

Rocking the piston skull shift knob! haha :D
