    I will be adding a class legal rear spoiler and front splitter, at some point. The splitter will be similar to Rampage, but basically what's on Jeff and Todd's car.

    I would make the splitter easy to remove, my Camaro would rub the bottom of the bumper cover on the trailer door/ramps. Either that or long ramps, really long.

    I plan on it. No way I'll be able to get on a trailer with it

    You think you would have issues that way ,Just look at mine IMSA front end. I have to always watch where I go. Maybe you should look into a Dzus fastner setup to mount your splitter.

    In my head I have a "pin-able" solution, but I won't know for a while if it will actually work.

    Just a little bit more of dash work. I needed to get the last few bits in there. I plan on getting the entire dash finished and wired, so when it's time to go in the car it's just a couple fasteners and plugs and it's in.

    First up was adding the volt gauge/USB/12v power port combo I got off Amazon for something like 4 bucks. It's marine grade, so it should hold up in the car. This way I can supply power for a tablet to run data acquisition.

    Next was the thing ever race car needs - an overly big tach. This unit is pretty cool because it has a memory recall, so I can see how big of a wuss I was on the last run.

    After I had things trimmed out and test fit, it was time to start finishing things. I drilled a few more holes in the gauge panel, hit it with some VHT wrinkle paint, and put it together.

    Left to right - water temp (top), battery cut off (bottom), oil pressure warning light, oil pressure gauge, oil temp gauge, ignition control panel

    I have a roll of semi-gloss black vinyl on the way to wrap the main dash, and then I can finish wiring it.
