Team America World Time Attack – ARK Design’s BNR32 Skyline GT-R Part 4


Hung from HPS hoses is going ape shit with the plasma here. The rear of the car is stripped of all parts that can easily be removed while the trunk area floor is cut out with a plasma cutter to make room the the fuel cell and the diffuser support. Things are flying and it's looking scary.  A lot of people are crammed into a small space.
The trunk floor was a quick and dirty deal.  We had planned to cut away all of the unibody and make a tubular structure to support the fuel cell, body panels and rear diffuser and wing similar to a pro drift car, but a lack of time means that will have to wait until next year.  This means that thereis still at least 50 lbs of metal and probably more that we can remove from back there.
After the plasma cutter an angle grinder is used to clean things up.
 It is looking like an Art of Noise video in there. 
 Ugh what a mess but it's just temporary.
Cardboard templates are being made for the firewall between the trunk area and the driver's compartment. Even Brian Bridges himself is getting in the mix here. If they want Gary to make it to the Florida round of Formula D, then they have to help out and get shit done or else Gary cannot make it because Eric will lock him inside Design Craft.
