R1 Avanti Progress

Body has been stripped by soda blasting.
I'll use this fast and tidy method again!

Chassis rebuild is nicely underway.

R1 Tear Down

R1 restoration underway. 

Prior to rebuild.
I'm bumping the engine horse with a
re-ground cam, hyperutectic pistons, gapless rings, R3 intake valves, ARP rod bolts and main studs,
plus I'm porteing the heads for better flow.
Adding a modified supercharger set-up for performance longevity.
