    It's been cool to see the progress, and they've put a lot of time into it. my body guy does good work, and uses good materials.
    Here's some more pix of the bodywork.

    The body is all but done >:D >:D >:D
    We've still got to decide on what to do for the custom stuff!

    Check it out :)

    Looks really good. I can't wait to see it finished though. It seems like it's taking forever and it's not even my own car. :noes:

    Red - everything seems like it takes forever, especially if it's custom.


    Quickstang - ya they did blend it. bonded the sides, and had to rework the whole pieces. then filled out the bottom of the doors so thy line right up with the skirts.


    Snakebit - NO gap FTMFW :)
    what do you think of the stripe area??

    Thanks Brian,
    It's been interesting looking at different stripe/graphic locations.
    I think we've picked a good combo to fit the car. :)

    I feel ya man, I was so excited when we loaded my car into the booth. I ALMOST painted it like the Super Stallion but decided to go with one color to keep it clean and simple. I want the way my car looks and sounds to tell you about it, not the crazy paint job.

    That's cool man.

    What color is yourse exactly?


    I have a sweet 2 tone picked out, it would be awsome looking.
    But, I'm wondering if I'd get sick of it, and I don't want my car to be really flashy...

    So, I'm back to white with a little accent in blue/silver.

    or maybe vice versa?

    I would just stick to one color instead of making all kinds of crazy graphics. sometimes its better to just stick with the basics. Sleeper style FTW :) ;D :naughty:
