Project 300m - First Steps

From tunertricks.com September 19, 2005. I mentioned this project briefly (and vaguely) in a few previous posts, and am now ready to let everyone see a few choice shots of our biggest undertaking to date. This 300m is undergoing radical modifications to take it from dad’s sports sedan to a one of a kind show vehicle that is slated to make its debut at the 2006 International CES in Las Vegas this January. We have already stripped the 300m of all its original interior panels and accessories (few will make their way back to the car) and have trailered the vehicle to ASK Research and Development (an Atlanta-based machine shop and engineering facility) for extensive door modifications. Before we can start any of the interior fabrication and audio/video system installation, this work will have to be completed, changing the 300 from a standard four-door to a two-door with a very unorthodox opening mechanism. Enjoy the shots of this project in its infancy, and look for more as the project progresses throughout October and November. We’ve got some very exciting details to announce as the work continues…
