    While I love that roof (was definitely aware of it when I ordered my hood) it’s not going to happen. That would set this project back on too many levels. That’s asking to add another 90 days by the time it arrives and gets installed. That’s NOT a simple install, not to mention it’s probably a $2-3k addition with labor. At nearly $40k in new parts alone already...I will have to get creative with what I’ve got. Like I said...I want this thing done and we’ve got some nice momentum right now.

    This project is like my mullet. The overall project is just something eye catching. The sides are what everyone see's but its the front, top and back that flows and really ties the whole thing together

    I really believe the finished product will show very well regardless. I’ve seen it unfolding in my head for weeks now :D

    And here is your complete suspension setup. Gloss navy panhard rod and H&R sway bar that matches up with the coil over springs for that added subtle touch. Ummm wow

    PS I swear I have one of the most talented car builders in metro Detroit that nobody knows about. If you’re in the area and you need autorama quality work....hit me up, I’ve got your guy.

Now just to get the vert looking that good!! It might take a little time for me to get it that far but I have J to help with that he really is an awesome person and friend. Looks amazing Geoff keep it up!!!
