    While it all looks good, I think it is overkill. I would have invested the time and money fixing the frame. He did do a LOT in a short period of time. What got him towards the end was all of the tiny things most of us have gone through, bad connections on the ballast resistor, a bad "O" switch, vacuum leaks, and the fan fail relay that fails (aptly named!). He needs the relay upgrade kit and Dave's fan relay. He should also do the upgrade for the "O" switch so it is on the bottom of the pipe like the later cars. If you saw, air came out when he replaced it, that's why it didn't work. He will be replacing the seal soon, you NEVER put grease on it!

    ... will this actually happen or is this more of the "future never being promised" marketing? At least there aren't any NFTs of the D-GTO! :-)

    funnily enough just before his video released I was having ignition issues: loose ballast connections and dead coil, so why he didn't change them for new spades is beyond me. the original lines still bug me and he should have focused more on making it work rather than look pretty like the frame needed attention before he re-did the suspension, but that's just my experience restoring 5222 which was in far worse state

    do you still have stock brake setup or vented disc? I have been thinking of doing the miata conversion deal.

    I just completely restored and upgraded my chassis including brake rebuild, got my discs turned and plated, new pads, new master cylinder, and all new brakes lines. Also got the hubs painted and new SKF bearings. So I'm as good as stock gets right now which is fine but I might do the DPI brake kit next year. The car is never "done", is it?

    Currently I'm looking more at safety stuff like adding a Halon fire extinguisher and wrapping all my positive cables in DEI heat sheaths.

    $250,000.... for that.

    No.

    The upgraded digital gauge cluster is dope, but this is nothing new as well as the wheels having been done over a decade ago. Ultimately, that blue interior looks like it was vomited out by Will.I.Am.
