So if it doesn't sell by the time we get the KOH car built and get back from the race at the end of february/beginning of March I'll be keeping it.

The plans are 1.25" heims (I do have somewhat of a hookup now )
3-link front + panhard (keeping steering box for street use)
4-link rear
16" either coil-overs or air shocks depending on how much I want to spend.

The hood is killer and well the whole thing. Sounds like your new job is working out great for you!
