Glad to have you aboard! Lots and lots of you Texan folks here at VMF. l It looks well done and very fast. I second getting an export brace...and a better steering wheel! Even turn keys can be improved upon! This is a coup to fastback conversion?

It would seem so if that ďDĒ 5th digit is to be believed.

The anvil of reality.

Actually it would be the "07" in the VIN that indicates a coupe-to-fastback conversion.

It looks like a custom fabricated export brace is in place--what am I missing? Nice car-you'll be thrilled with it.
