    Ok so I've always wanted to build one of these. My sn95 ended up having alot more rust on it then expected so plan was to buy a notch and do it. Well a friend of mine built this one and was gonna help me do mine. But times got hard for him so he sold it to me for 4000 witch is a steal for the amount of work done to it

    The day I bought it. Was originally a 4 cyl car

    But what's done to it so far
    Has a 99 pi 2v motor with mach 1 shaker, t45 trans, 8.8 with some jegs axles, tubular k memeber, coilovers on all 4 corners, sn95 interior, and a tune
    He took it to the track with radial had a best time of 13.1 not bad for a stock 2v with a tune!

    So since I'm putting my sn95 back to stock I started swapping everything today

    Of course first thing I swapped was my wheels lol

    After that I swapped my cobra brakes then over my seats tried to swap the fr500 steering wheel but can't get the old one off for the life of me

    Interesting project, like a SN had a kid with a Fox. Not sure if I like/dislike the Fox hood, but the options are a bit limited for the shaker scoop.

    Overall, there is definitely a lot of work with the interior/2V swap. Looks like it was done well, the wheels look great on the Fox.

    Didn't get much done on it today finally got the steering wheel off with some heat and broke the clock spring while I was at it. So I'm making a junkyard run tomorrow to hopfully find one and a black carpet for the car so well see what happens

    Yes, please make the shaker functional. Or remove it. Other than that, the interior swap is sweet. Interesting transformation, for sure. Any plans for boost?

    Fox looks great man! Cant wait to see it done! Love the way the door panels are being molded to fit the fox doors.


    Question for you? Live anywhere near MN... Interested in a front bumper swap on the sn with mine lol
