Feeling slightly nervous

Well she has been 12mths in the making and tomorrow I pick her up from
having the engine rolling road/ mapped.
Now I've got that little nervous feeling about taking her out on the road for her first
Having said that I am looking forward to seeing the what power she now makes.
It's has been fairly straight forward installing the rb25 engine and gearbox albeit it's taken a little longer than a standard restoration with the addition of modern a/c etc
I've tried to keep the appearance of the car standard inside and out
Here are a few photos

I've changed my screen theme from Classic to Sinister - there is just too much orange on this site!

Great car.

Fantastic looking car. So is this standard suspension? Doesn't look lowered much (if any) and looks perfect stance-wise to me.

Wonderful workmanship as well! Wouldn't mind seeing some pics of the interior when you have the time.

I've kept the suspension hight stock just fitted gas shocks. My previous car had front lowering springs because the USA set up was to high but she would grind out over Sleeping policemen .
I hope I've got the right balance this time .

That sleeper look is perfect for a street car I think.

Lots of surprised looks on driver's faces in your future.

Love the fact you have kept the exterior and interior standard. Why spoil a stunning, beautiful design with grotesque spoilers and bolt-on wheel arches? Looks the absolute business and a great colour too. Hope it drives as well as you hope. Enjoy!

Car looks great and the RB25 makes it the perfect driver car IMO. Looking forward to seeing it at Lemanes.

I agree, one of the nicest pic of a 918 car I've seen - in fact ANY Z.
