That looks nice Gary!

Did you remove the forward passenger air bag and put the matching color panel in its place?

Looks pretty fancy. Did you have that done at Tims?
Are you going to be serving Brandy and Cigars in there?

I gotta say I do like the direction you're going under the hood and those coil covers turned out really good. Did you sell your trans brace or do you want to?
