Moving car from shop to bodyshop, starting the paint finishing process. Took a little longer than planned but she's on her feet now. From the beginning, I believed that details matter. Like having a full wrap around the header pipe outlet, or an accurate firewall/footbox

Really nice Paul. I like the wrap around. Many kits overlook that to make the body slip on easier. What color are you going with? Stripes? Congrats it's looking great!

Couple weeks late in posting, but starting to get excited. Found the formula for the paint color - not an easy task as it is a proprietary color.  Saleen LizStick Red
