Harofreak I've already told myself I'm gonna have to drive it with a slightly different attitude about watching things a little closer and parking out on the grass knoll at wally world. The shop already told me scratch it and the entire section has to be redone$$$ Definately time for custom car insurance.

Pat I give in ... IF the car is out of shop, I will be there for saturday afternoon and come back same day, promise. The time is gonna be tight. The shop is a madhouse of work being done and the paintjob is just the beginning so....I was lucky and resourcefull enough to get to the top of a long list and cant take car till it'* all done.

Yeah gumball I was thinking....4 chrome things with the flat barrier tape in them....my bank will never miss them

The 20'* are back to 18'*... pattern I picked on big backorder so the next best pick are 18 inchers called VEGAS. I really prefer 18, I seen Bonney here with 20'* and as Haro said they looked like SUV wheels on it.
The lamb doors arent till fall. Shops to busy , and me too. But the nitrous injection needs finishing and wiring....along with the purge kits and laser array.
Then then chrome tank, 12 volt chrome air compressor, and dual stage valve and lines and wiring for on demand rear lift. Gotta figure where to bolt chrome extingasher in cabin.
Got GM factory bra with Pontiac arrowhead, OEM Pontiac winshield logo ( the wild rough looking one), and i got the GM weather gaurds for windows in smoked acrylic.Wew .
And then a break while I breath a little and get ready for stage two....lighting and sound and window tinting (red of course was there any choice) maybe a pattern called red ice. I have to see some against the new color first. Yeah I've lost my mind and having a blast doing it..........Anybody know anything about reverse mortgages ROFL

Wow....you mentioned this paint job to me....but I couldn't picture it...leaving the cranberry base was a great choice....the other cars looked...well, like some kid had poured milk over them. Of course, pics do not do them justice...but...if YOU can get pics to turn out great, then you'd better have asprin and nitro handy...folks will be having heartattaches when they see it in person.

I got plenty of both Country Girl
Glad ya like it , cute stuff and now you can see how hard it is to explain but it came out as phychotic but artistic as I saw it in my head. Actually had a hard time convincing painter to do. His first one without white or black as base ( which is sorta a marblelizing rule.) So we cut some new ground- he'* as tickled as me with results- and it'* ultra original and fresh. And he'* rethinking doing cars without having to first shoot entire car with base coat....My boats gonna miss me and my wallet hating me cause I'm getting custom car show fever.

if you are gonna have a show quality car, you are gonna need to get a better camera or learn to hold your anxious hand steady or find a tripod..
