    I did a screen shot of the last engine bay pic for inspiration. Seriously amazing work, top shelf buddy. Almost there guys, finish line is close!

    The polished pieces in the engine bay? A build of this level I’m shocked this was overlooked.

    Not sure if serious. They were intentional lol the pop of polished metal breaks up the color pallete by design. Considering all the polished pieces you see were ordered new that way I would consider that a MAJOR oversight:D

    if you see it on this car, it was intentional. I lose sleep over details that most won’t even notice

    Here’s another example. I almost always use polished metal alongside a main neutral tone and a color. I understand we all have different tastes though :) IMG_6319.JPG

    You are an artist. And I really like your choice of canvas. :)

    I really wasn’t sure. It just looks like an afterthought with all the powder coat. Like oh shit we didn’t have the parts in time so we just ordered them polished.

    Is something going to get mounted where the two holes are at near the driver side strut tower?

    Thanks!!
    Yes sir, we’re mounting the Holley boost controller there. It covers the two holes perfectly.

    Wow.. I had no idea this was going on.

    I'm kinda glad I was out of the loop until now.. I feel like I just binge watched 6 seasons of Musclecarresort and it was worth every second.

    Awesome work man.

    Went on a nice family vacation over the last week or so. The car will be on the ground and running by the end of the day tomorrow if all goes as planned. We’re 99% done.
    Got the interior in and boy does it look sharp.

    Wired up the boost controller and ran the line for the Co2 bottle to mount to the harness bar
