The OP is chomping at the bit for a slip in the 50's. That's only a matter of time, it'll do that.

Relaxing

Looks good, buddy. Lotsa pop in the colors. It's been years since a paint job has grabbed my attention like this.

Real nice.

Sissy sticks" that's an ol' skool one you don't hear everyday, I can dig it. You figure conditions will be good and the track prepped well, always is early in the season, everyone raring to go.

If you're seriously worried about wheelying off the trailer, tighten the F' out the compression and loosen the rebound to lay down some tracks. That's how I run mine no sissy sticks. Otherwise it would definitely be on the bumper too.

Pause the video after the car leaves and look in the groove. This is a 1.29 60ft 10x28 bias slick. Laying tracks keeps it off the bumper. You can adjust that into the car with a loose rebound, tight compression if the pick up point is placed correctly (not too low per the power in play).

Congratulations on a job well done Brian. I keep thinking about glass doors but I'm afraid of the installation. My steel doors are gutted to the max so not sure how much weight i'd save.

Car came out beautiful! Major difference!! Love that orange and I'm sure it pops in the sun.

I seen you were talking about painting the centers of the wheels black which I think would look great but if you have someone close to you that can do hydro dipping, I would get them dipped in carbon fiber to match the graphics on the car. I think that would tie everything together very well!
