    Dude... Comon, don't kid yourself. Bring this thing to shows that mags will be at, and you know without a doubt this car will be in Multiple magazines. Its a true work of art and i commend and wish i had the skills (and funds!) to do what you did here. :nice:

    The tuning seems good except I wish it would key start a little cleaner, but it's acceptable. Right now all the hot side is at JET HOT getting coated.

    This is easily one of the greatest car builds I have ever read through. I wish I had your time, talent and money. My welding is pretty poor.

    I had considered the decal/clearcoated idea long ago and after see yours, I am sold on it. I missed it somewhere - where did you find the decals?

    Thanks

    Thanks,man. Got the decals at our local paint supply/vinyl sign shop. Did some experimenting, you must use a high grade of vinyl or it will fail. We did test panels and practiced on how many coats of clear it took to bury the edge.

    THANKS.
