    Yeah, I did it all. Wish I had more metal working tools cause I'd like to make some custom meteal pieces.

    I love it. 14" rotors when the stock wheel size is 14". That's bad ass.

    I'm with CT. This is why I like to watch those shows on cable whenever I go somewhere that has cable. I hate when those shows devolve into totally scripted bullschidt. I like seeing the guys do magic. So, are we gonna see this on any show or in any magazine?

    I can't decide on a paint color. I'm liking this scheme also. Car body would be some shade of red with a single wide stripe.

    I just can't see the carbon fiber look going well on a classic car. But I sure hope I'm wrong. I know the car will be awesome regardless.

    If I was going for a classic car look, I'd agree. But there's not much left that's classic. . The interior will be something along these lines.

    Thanks man. I'm stoked about the rims. I'm scared to even put them on the car for fear of scratching them.
