Show us the sides!  :)

(I regret I couldn't get all the mounting hardware for you, I literally stripped a screw bit and cut up both my hands trying.  You should have enough to get atleast 1 on and probably a couple extra for the other.)

Actually a lot of those brackets were from a Z04 car.  The S type brackets are used for the sides, I have 3.   I will track down the rest of the brackets and sell off the Z04 ones if anyone needs.  

The yellow one is in pretty dang nice shape, it cleaned up much better than the teal one.  Oddly the yellow one had two very small splits that the teal one did not.  

I will have pics up when I make some progress.

the more i look at those yellow skirts on that red car, makes me feel like having some mc donalds for some reason....  :p


Hey, dont tempt me to rock it Bstuff style.  Yellow drums, steering wheel, interior trim, filler panels, gfx....it will never stop!

Actually, I think I will pass :P

They are on the non-visible underside, correct?  Hope I didn't falsely advertise.

They are very small.  One is on the underside, close to a fasten point.  The other is on the inner fender lip, about 3" long but its a very clean split, but its faces inside the wheel well, where the holes are.  


You didnt false advertise, dont worry.

I had spoken to Kurt and Dustin about the sides and how there was no drilling and everything would line up......not my 91 :(  The slots on the GFX are in completely different places then the existing holes....oh well.

The car hasnt been washed in a month, not its shiniest....dont hold it against me I have been busy.

We got it all straight now, oddly enough the GTU gfx have some distinct differences.  I've never heard of anyone ever mention that, We both just learned a whole lot after the discussion Jamie and I just had.

That definately reminds me of Jimbo's car from say 4-5 years ago. When are you taking them off and sending them to paint? Or are you redoing the whole car again.

I have a few big projects to complete at once.  One being the turbo piping, turbo rebuilding and overall install.  The other being all body work...the one rust bubble, all dings, and paint the gfx.  Lastly the whole wedding thing(though that will be a joint project.

My money during the summer goes down quite a bit.  So I have had a couple interviews this week and next for fulltime design positions, one which offers a large signing bonus.   IF I get that I will do the turbo and body work all in a one month period before august is out.

Which Jimbo are you talking about?  Jim Metz?  Wasnt there a Jimbo with a turbo GTZ too?

Jimbo Im referring to had the GT or base model with everything painted yellow on it. Jimbo was his SN and had a red and yellow car.

So where did you end up finding the side skirt attachment moldings at?

You should put on the GTU mirrors as well. Im pretty sure there is one on ebay right now.

I am going back and forth whether I want the GTU mirrors.   They sort of scream 80's to me and seem a bit dated, but then again they are rare and an upgrade to what I have now.

I dont have all the hardware yet.  I have 3 of the S brackets and a few flat brackets.  I need about 10 total of the S's to do it right.

Ribz you have to get the windows tinted. I've always thought that Beretta's windows are way too big, so the two things that help "even the car out" a bit are: GTU/Indy or Z04 ground effects, to add substance to the bottom of the car, and tinted windows, so the car doesn't look like a green house minus the plants.
