I have not gotten pics yet because I was working late and forgot but the hood, deck lid, front fender sand rear bumpers are all in primer now.
the front bumper will be done today as well as the roof of the car. I still need to do some more work on the rockers and the doors. after that I will be building the mounts and some updates on the 3800 install. then all we will need to do is clean it up
it will be in primer but she should still look cool.

one more step in the never ending project LOL! JK!

so yesterday we did a quick repair job and got that car off the lift and rolled out yours to go on it.
we blew off the mountain of body dust and started it up. Aaron will be going over the car today to add a few things in the wiring as well as updates to the tune.
then the body will start going back on. the front is done and in primer, I decided on one last tweek on the rear that I will need to finish and then finish the rockers.
lots of work still to go but I can see the end

It really gives a lowprofile, sleepy eyed look that i like.

we got the rest of the body installed testerday. the drivers side rocker, the gas door, the mirrors, hood, deck lid, rear wing and much more.
today the car will be getting the final things. fender liners, ac lines and charge, wire up front lights, reinstall the interior and the final clean up.
I hope to get it outside for a few pics before dark and then load it on the trailer for Daytona.

Thanks guys,

Coming along slowly but surely. The wheels are what is going to make the car pop IMO.

As the old saying goes, the only way to eat an elephant,.......... is one bite at a time.
