The TPR GTT-S

As most of you know about my recent hell trip to Florida. Heres the pics of the process my car went thru. I only scanned the major ones, but there are others...

First we cut my original GTS in half frown

Linked Image
Linked Image

then we put on a rear end of a black 2000 GT

Linked Image

the shop owner was awesome enough to fix all my dents I had as well grin

Linked Image

so then we sanded her all down and put her in the booth

Linked Image
Linked Image

and she came out great smile

Linked Image

then we swapped out the GTS suspension and braking system into the new rear end

Linked Image

Then i drove home that night (stopping over in atlanta) and heres a pic taken a couple days ago smile

glad to see all is well. when i read the title i thought you had just gotten a turbo. rofl

well anyway, does it feel any different than before? is the chasis stiffer/weaker?

(knowing you, you probably had some extra stich welds in dey places.)

haha, well i was invited down to FL by my ex gf. I stopped over in Atlanta the day before. I was coming around a corner and my tire fell off my rim in the passenger side rear. My ass end swung around and clipped oncoming traffic. then into the woods. Wasnt going very fast (maybe 30-35).

My stay in FL was even more eventful frown

That's all that matters then!! as long as it's a good job and safe enough for you to drive thumbsup

I think the legality comes into it when you are selling the car, you need to inform a prospective buyer what's been done to it. Unfortunately you probably wouldn't get a lot for it rolleyes

Damn man, I would have thought they would have tossed that car after that much damage. I'm really impressed how they put it all back together.

Damn man it makes me cry cry cry to see that.

Glad your ok, and waiting to see the Final TPR products. thumbsup

yeah when can we expect more TPR products and how is the production of the Intake and exhaust coming. Are you buried with orders or are they being shipped quickly.
