Looks really tough slammed down low. I really do like those wheels in the first pics.

I appreciate ti! Wheels I decided to go with are the chrome (Less work) things might change. I painted the accent blue into the wheels so I hope thats the ticket.

right now 'm trying to find the best frame work to basically splice on, and not re-create a one off frame, ( not to brave and bold of a builder yet) and try to keep that possibility it could be done in real life.

Hope you like this project, I think it's turning out quite sexy!

Since we last update I've cut out the handle in the dash for an extra TV, working on shaving the door handles.

I've tubbed the rear tire wells.

I've done my best alien looking motor.

Paint is going on and fix's are made!

very nice , i have to be hounest those rear wheels for me are too big .. dont know for going low with a large diameter rim you should have the same size in the rear as in the front (meaning size like the front one as a max size for the rear)

Yes sir, thanks! I am wondering about thoughts buggy wheels. And I hope when it all comes together you see an improvement on the fit and finish. Theses photos i have up are not showing tubed rear tire wells yet, so when that does get done like I said I hope it looks much better. It will have a lower stance and rear tires a bit higher in the wheel well.
