Thanks I'm really happy with how it's coming together. Ceramic coating and header wrap should be in Monday.

Decided to change how the core support bolts up. I like this a lot better.

Starting getting everything out of the way in the engine bay to get ready for primer and paint this weekend. Still need to cap off the core support ends where I cut it off and do a little filler work.

Just finished this car for a customer. It's a Switzer p800, we just refinished these wheels in our bourbon street candy over machined face. This is what I do for a living custom wheel refinishing and repair.Name:  1A6923B2-539F-4212-8AEA-3F79081FEA6A_zpslbt7apm5.jpg

Finished it this afternoon. I'm very happy with the result. Ended up going with the darkest variant of SOM. I really have just always loved this color.

Mine with an HD2 shift kit got my car into the 9's. It gave up the ghost shortly after though. I don't think the trans was in the greatest shape though when I put it in. I've seen guys make quite a bit of power on them for quite some time.

Got it all ceramic coated with cerakote glacier black and then wrapped it all with 2" DEI black header wrap. I'm very happy with the results I know some people don't like the look of header wrap but I think it looks killer when put on correctly. Hopefully this stuff will do its job and keep the engine bay temps down and increase spool time. Name:  50204EB7-BDDA-46FD-A8A6-D6C3B7E57EE4_zps9obawm4o.jpg
