    @madmike1157
    Thank you for the kind words!
    As far as weight goes the blower/gear drive unit add about 45 lbs to the front of the car. I saved approx 20 lbs with the tube front end so it isn't that bad of a trade off. It also adds nose weight down low which I'm hoping will help greatly when it comes to setting this thing up to get off the line.

    That looks great!! I partial to green anyway, but the overall combination really came out nice. She will definitely turn heads!

    looks great, and about 50 times quicker than waiting for a body shop lol. I really like what you did with the hood.

    I wish it was a black one!!! it's the factory blue but it still looks good with the green!
    I used 3M double sided molding tape, works like a champ! It will pull the vinyl off before it falls off on its own.
