    Exhaust surround , because the back panel below the taillights is curved the exhaust tip needs a surround to make it more of a feature , instead of it just sticking out of a hole .
    So i built a plug for that piece and when i make the rear mid panel i will insert it into the panel .
    So you can see in the first pic at the outside edges of the tip there is a gap , so the surround will fill that and still maintain the look of it sticking out of the mid panel .
    Once the mid panel comes out of the mold the center of the surround will be trimmed out .

      out of place a bit but this is what you have to do to make the body wider and have the door open and work with the fender , I didn't want to do this unless i had too .
      You can see where it was cut and a piece of tube was welded in to move the pivot point outwards .

        Working on the bottom half of the hood , this was the first mock up I did , I really wanted to do this but it's just too time consuming , If I was building just one , well then I would have gone for it .

          So back to the bottom half that's happening , as you probably know , tons of guys have swapped out the engine for something else , LS3 , 2JZ , even S2000 . there are so many swaps that work with this car as well as mods for the factory VQ35 including turbos , single , doubles , supercharging etc , most 4 cam V6 and V8 engines are very wide , the heads are huge .
          So i decided to make some extra room under the new hood to accommodate these add on's.
