Every single nut and bolt has been removed, stripped, acid dipped and zinc plated. If the bolt was too rusty for my liking, it was replaced. countless hours of the last year have been spent building it. The Transtop works without fault. There wasn’t a suspension component that was not stripped, sandblasted and Powdercoated. This car has been built to the absolute highest standard. Not a single clip or screw is missing on any of the panels. If they broke upon removal I ordered new from Honda

Also had the car up on a ramp to inspect it.
So impressed with the standard of the re zincing and powder coating the guy has done

Wow, the attention to detail is amazing. Can't remember the last time I saw a Del Sol on the road.
