Challenge 360 conversion to Michelotto

The car has Michelloto style N-GT front / rear bumpers and cockpit controlled brake bias.

Custom Agency Power Headers with Ceramic Coating

Fabspeed Cat-delete pipes

Custom HMF Engineering “X”-Pipe exhaust with twin through-bumper exit tips (N-GT style)

I am looking to convert the car as much as possible starting with the headlights to Euro yellow - suggestions?

I would wrap the lenses with Lamin-X's yellow film. It will protect the lens from debris and give the look you want, plus it's reversible if you ever decide you want to go back to plain housings.

Thanks - that is exactly what I was looking for

Any idea how to convert the hood or where to find one with the air intake?

I will check my catalogue. One of my suppliers lists a myriad of N-GT body work, all replica for the 360 and 430. I might be able to help you get a complete composite hood already modified with the NACA duct so you don't have to modify your existing hood.

They have the bumpers and diffusers but not the hood. I can check with the race dept. at FoW, where your car came from they still have some spares, hard to say what could be bought and what is being saved though. You can buy the NACA ducts from places like Pegasus Auto Racing Supply and modify the current hood.

Here is a pic of the hood my supplier does have though

You are 100% correct!

Prefer the correct hood if you can find one - the bumpers are key for larger front tires.

I think a lot of shops are having them made overseas.

Have a order on hold with Pegasus - trying to get to 2500.00 for the whopping 10% off.
