Doors are back on. Actually went easier than we thought it would. Not easy, but easier...

It's really starting to come together. Phil really has done an awesome job with the paint.

Phil post up some pics...

My good buddy jim motivated me tonight and we got alot accomplished.

When we couldn't start his headlight mod he kicked my butt and its 90% done. I will install the license plate mod while waiting on the hood.

Now all you have to do is kick Randy in the ass and get your hood back. It was fun putting it together...

Don't forget to relocate your foglights for the Tigershark fascia.

Brian - I think he's going to move them while he puts the license plate thing on. Of course I can't speak for him...

ok european a$$h*les. I will just say that. I started sanding the car with 1500 last night. I was almost tempted to drive it up to the gas station with no hood to get gas in the beast.........I may do that today.
