12 hours into what is likely going to be a 24 or so hour workday... unlikely that any progress is going to be made tonight. Still no clue on colours though gloss black is one that is rattling around in the old brain pan...

got a little more done, ride heights set, and frame is built ready for paint,

not sure wether to run the kit rims painted with alclad magnesium for the old school racer look, or wide whites and hubcaps. ill make that call tomorrow when i shoot some paint after work. this has been the never ending week.
