It is getting very good comments. That surprises me. I've decided to do my own version of this concept on my '85. I would like to have longer control arms to give me more suspension travel but since the passenger side axle is the longest one GM ever made for FWD cars, I know at least one axle will have to be custom. I don't know if I can weld in a section to make it longer or if it would interfere with the cradle either way. I don't want to use the cradle spacers like the Jalapeno does. I'd rather have actual increased ground clearance and suspension travel. Maybe I can make a longer axle AND modify the cradle. We'll see.

This Photoshop "paint" in Gulf colors looks pretty good.

Of course! Gotta finish the iGTO bumper first, though or Crazydragn might do some kind of tiger-crane dance on my face!

I think at the least the article relieves me in that I thought for a while PISA's status was in the dark. They haven't updated their webpage in forever and most all their kits on the second hand market are older splashes. I thought they had potentially shut down since we hear like NOTHING from them.
