      • Seems like the last few videos you have been chasing down electrical demons. I know that has to be frustrating but seeing the car move under its own power has to be giving you that needed boost to keep going. Keep it up, the car is looking seriously impressive.

        I did have a question that I thought I would post here thinking it might just get lost in the YouTube comments. Just wondering why you chose not to make the passenger seat adjustable like the drivers? You may have stated this in one of the videos and if so Im sorry to have you repeat it.

        Also, did your kit come with a dash piece that you will be able to mount your gauge cluster into. I know you mentioned there was a center console, so I assume there is a dash as well. If so, any though to how the cluster will be mounted?

        Regarding the seats, are the buckets just for framing that will be padded and covered later?

        Lastly, is there any sort of top that would go on the car or is this a fair weather driving car only? The design didn't look like like it was made for a hard or removable top, but I was wondering if there was a fabric / removable top that went on?

        Sorry for all the questions, it's just my curiosity was getting the best of me and now that you were getting close to the next phase of your build I thought it was better to ask now than when you were neck deep in the electrical part.

        Like I said, before, I am closely following and enjoying your build very much. Looking forward to future updates.

        • Questions are always welcomed and encouraged.

          As far as the seating arrangement...the car itself does not have a great deal of room. I felt the driver needs to have fine adjustment for pedals and steering wheel position. The passenger, I thought would want as much room as they can get, so I mounted it all the way back.

          There is a dash piece. As far as mounting, this car does not really have instructions or mounting points, so I will have to figure that one out soon.

          The seats are designed to have padding added.

          I did order a hard top. This will need to be figured out, but much later.

          • I appreciate you taking the time to answer my crazy questions. The hard top in the last picture looks awesome but I understand that you are still working out more of the functional issues at the moment. Please keep the updates coming. I have really been enjoying your build.

            Oh and one more thing, the new into to your videos, very nice. The old one wasn't terrible in my opinion, but this new one is nice.

                We find brake lines leaking. We find the steering rack leaking. The controller will not boot up. And we might need a new radiator. Sigh...
