Very nice Ellis!!! I'm picturing a backdrop of an industrial, maybe train yard. Or just passing the tree with the front tires in the air ;)

Yea, it looks much better with the nose on it, fills out the graphics much better. your going to have to put the ole blue tape on at the drags or clear stick on stuff to keep the chipping down.

It looks great, are you bringing it to dyno day? I really don't see the bass boat connection, but it's a funny reference anyway. :D

I am sure it would have made it. After all I did paint it for the LTX shoot out I can not now take the car to :(

Like every one says it must be seen to be believed. I thought long and hard over the past ten years on this paint job. I AM glad I did it the way I did :D

VERY sad you can't make that event Ellis! :cry: Proof that $HIT happens. Can't wait to see the beast in person. I'll polish some parts for you so you can do a car show if that will help make you feel better....:P
