    It's really great to see your project back on the tracks. The paint looks awesome! This will be one sweet t- top when your done.

    My .02 cents, I like the wheels you have on it now.

    I love Saleen wheels on a fox. What about chroming them rather than going black? Black is stealthy, but I feel like the fad will fade. Chrome looks great against a dark paint job, and is more timeless.

    Fair enough, I guess black would give you a completely different look than what you currently have.

    I've had black ponys on my 93 since 2001. I'm kinda burnt out on them since so many cars / trucks have black wheels now. I'm thinking about doing a basic 5 lug conv with anthracite / polished lip tri-bars to change it up.

    Very nice! How did you wash it without a windshield??? Very carefully would be the obvious answer I guess.

    I totally forgot that is how the car started. Not gonna lie, I had my doubts when I first saw you doing that! You did awesome man. One question though, the car seems to sit high in the rear? I cant remember what set up you have without looking back, but is that how you plan to leave it?
