    I am excited to see an update regarding this build as well. It's been a while since I've seen wire wheels, it's not easy to find a set nowadays. I try to check 4WheelOnline but it's not available.

    I had Dan Palatnik ( dan.palat@gmail.com ) do the 3D modeling, model slicing, and station buck modeling work for my Miura project. He's very good at this and was reasonably priced. I had all the buck stations cut from birch plywood from the CNC instructions Dan provided back to me. The station buck has been extremely helpful for my build project.

    Guys, you did incredible work the cars look incredible! I can only imagine the feeling that you have while driving. It is something new and at the same time old. This car remembers me of my grandpa's car. Even the color is pretty the same. You know I'm looking now for a car to buy and I was thinking about subaru cars. I even found a site with different models and the one that I stopped was the model BRZ. But now I think that I'll change my mind and I would like to buy such an amazing car. What do you think about this?

    Next up I AM starting on the body buck. But this project is taking a back seat for a few more months while I finish an engine swap/refresh in another car I have.

    I made some progress a while back but neglected to post. This was tedious work but it had to be done. I decided to add some gussets from the rear frame crossmember that would tie in to the strut tower area/frame rails.



    Next I prepped the whole floor, top and bottom to remove any paint, surface rust, and factory undercoating.




    Priming, seam sealing, undercoating
