I've always wanted a real first Gen SHO.  This is that silly old kit in which the intake, wheels, and headlights come in chrome.  I made the best of it.  I lowered the stance down from 4x4 height as well.

I like it! I always liked "oddball" kits. I almost finished my copy of the SHO but something else got my attention. You did a great job.

Thanks guys.  I basically had to cut the rear suspension and refit it.  The color is actually a GM red that I thought looked close to the Ford Current red on the SHOs.  I always liked the '90 wheels with the "SHO" lug covers.  For the intake a mix a touch of gold paint with silver to get that anodized look.  Great fun!  I gotta dig up some more 80's/90's kits!

Looks good. What did you do to lower it? I remember when those were first released that a few people thought they sat a bit high.
