Yes, Rafael. Digging up my old receipt dated 7/31/2007. Can't believe it's almost a year already ;-)

It's "GT28R-TURBO/GT2560R"

I paid premium for the higher pressure wastegate but we will arrange for a swap for those who are in current LGM turbo kit groupbuy.

Wastegate: "WG-ACT-28R-14PSI-ADJ"

Look carefully, the white markers should be to the outside of the car, and the blinker / orange to the inside.

I think is the US of A the front wing side markers come on with the side lights.

Now where did I leave that anorack ?

i think i found what i was looking for. did you get the 466541-1 or the 466541-4 ? i looking at -4 right now, only difference is the cast split in the turbine housing and the material of the wheels. all the clearances are the same.

Yes, she flipped her blinkers the other way round.

Rafael: I don't have much clue about the number you mentioned.

it's located on the cartridge identification plate. i'm sure if you ever look close enough you will find it :wink:

btw, i was talking to Marie, she said to talk to you about pricing. PM me or call me about a downpipe when you get a chance. i know that Marie has to use her elan for mock up and the jig, so no worries on time...yet! i'm actually looking at getting a GT2560R right now. in fact, the auction ends in like 17 minutes. i'll let you know how it goes. :twisted:

Thank you Lotos. The trunk lid that came with the car has some noticeable curves to it and doesn't really sit properly :wink:

Looks great Ekkers 8)
Pity about that 3rd brake light - if only someone could make a nice LED jobbie that recesses in the trailing edge of the spoiler - or better still a 'real' aerodynamic wing with integral LED lighting... :poke:

Thank you gents for the recommendation about the 3rd brake light. I was thinking about that and tried to get the part as in LGM brake light modification. Too bad that the part I got was from another model that doesn't work with our wing and that I had to send back the light. Then my time was running out and the car needed to be in the shop. That would have to go on the "ToDo" list for now.

I found this shop in South San Francisco. They are specialized in American muscle cars, hot-rods with very wet looking extra clear deep rich color with all the flame patterns, show cars, etc... ok you get the picture. I spent a lot of time researching for a body shop that could do the quality work for me. Marie and I went there when we dropped "Zizi" there. She actually was the one who disassembled all the panels, bumpers, etc. Leaving all the guys at the shop in awe... :smt104

Visited the shop yesterday and snapped few pictures. Almost there...

Image
Image
The bumpers were stripped down to the plastic level, giving them "proper" prep-job
Image
The panels were all clear-coated, still need be wet-sanded, and polished. My painter looks all proud of his work.
