New Firewall & Triple Oval Side Panel Option Available

This firewall and 3 oval side panels in the cockpit in the pictures below were installed by Vintage. We will be having 2 of these new firewalls and 3 oval side panel 550 Spyders arriving this month. So when we do, I will take lots of detailed pictures and post them here. This new option is a little more costly than the old version firewall and side panels because many more hours of bonding, bodywork, and paint work is involved. However the upside to this is that you don't have to upholster the firewall (we can if you would like, and we have come up with some detailed stitch work to incorporate that matches the seats and door inserts), this option could actually save you money on your build if you want painted rather than wrap the old original version in Premium Leather for example.

We lay up aluminum panels behind the oval cutouts as well.

Again, we did not take these pictures posted below, Greg at Vintage did, we are just borrowing them until our bodies are complete and I will update them with ours here shortly. Just had some people asking about them, so figured I'd post and share.

Tell us what you think! We love all feedback, positive or negative. What would you guys like to see be done? We'd love to hear it, criticism is welcome!

That is really pretty neat. These cars look so much better when they are not carpeted. Less kit car like.

Thank you. We can carpet the flat area so you can step down onto it, or we could even skin it in aluminum and rivet it into place. We're finishing up one customers Spyder with skinned aluminum side panels to match the full floor.

Here are the new side ovals and rear firewall. These still need blocked, primed, blocked, then sealed... but this still gives you an idea of what they look like. We have had a huge interest in these. They can be painted, the interior looks more true than the old version firewall or curved side panels.

We can even drill and add either rivets or cap screws to the firewall and sides to give it a more "broken up" look, so it's not just a wall of flatness.

The chassis on this specific car was powder coated matte wrinkle black from Prismatic Powders. It is just dusty from all the sanding. The blue painters tape behind the oval holes on each side is covering aluminum panels that were bound inside the area. The rivets on this particular Spyder will all be removed then replaced with stainless allen cap screws.

We will be hopefully bringing this car with us to SEMA 2014.

UPDATE! (May 5, 2014)



Here is a preview of a SM550 Spyder Outlaw we are assembling for a client. Should be complete here shortly. Waiting on some components to get back from powder coating as well as Bilsteins (shortage and back ordered).

Also we incorporated the new firewall on this one. These firewalls add about 2-3 weeks EXTRA on top of build time due to the complexity of bonding the body to the chassis as well as more time intensive for body work. (Oval side walls are included with aluminum skinning behind them with the new upgraded firewall. Please inquire direct with Daniel at Seduction Motorsports about these firewall and oval side panel options.

I love the rivets on the rear firewall.

Thank you Larry!

We've been stepping away form the "traditional" Spyder to mix it up a little without going over the top.

Thank you. We actually used stainless metric cap screws with stainless rubber backed washers instead of rivets. Didn't want to scratch the paint on the backside of the washer... sounds stupid, but it would have bothered me.
