Still needs to be cut and buffed but man I fell in love with this car all over again. Was 2975 with me in it added the Smith racecraft and fiberglass frontend and doors. 5.66 was the best before I am homping we knocked off atleast 200lbs. Going on scales later this week.. Trying to decide if I black the wheels out or leave them like they are. Maybe just do the centers black

If black wheels are in the budget, go for it. I'm kinda partial to Weld Magnums. Do beadlocks for sure would be my suggestion, you'll like em a lot (handling - performance). You can turn on a dime and better manage wheel speed as well with them.

No beadlocks for now lol. Done spending money for a little bit. I know I can powder coat the centers to get me by for now..

I didn't think of that. That'll look damn good too. Bogart's are done like that.

Take a look at those to give you an idea ahead of time.

Great scheme. I love the orange or whatever the main color is called. You did a fantastic job on it.

Car looks great! Try Plasti Dip on the wheels before you powder coat them. That way if you don't like it you can just peel the color off.

House of colors candy tangerine over sliver max base. The blue is a Hyundai color I believe lots of petal in it. Pics are in the shade but it's crazy in the sun

That looks fantastic! What a nice job!

Where did you get the rear bumper? The lip on it looks cool. Great job! Love the tangerine color.

Not sure yet going on the scales this week. Car was 2975 with me in it. Had steel front end and doors. Those are glass now.. I am hoping atleast 200 lbs cut but we will see. Smith racecraft is a fine fine piece. Nothing better on the market.
