I'm not a low rider builder, but I always appreciate a well done build! Very nice work!

It's got "Money Shot" written all over it! :)

Not too much to report on this one. But here is a little something.

Motor has been dropped in. Front suspension is in place and cylinders are in. Got a little work done on the pumps too. Give me some feedback!!!

That thing is wild and insane! I recall seeing some of this before, I really like the interior. How did you do the pleats, Evergreen sheet with special buttons...?

Well I finally got this bad boy back on the bench. :cheesy:

I used the pattern masks that I had made on my printer. Thanks to ZFelix for the pattern design. :biggrin:

I layed down the first set of patterns. They are a little light and might not show up to well, but I will try to highlight them a bit so they stand out a bit more.

Layed down some tape for the second set of patterns and layed down a coat of candy. Im going to let it dry for a couple of days and lay out some more patterns. These arent 100% perfect but once its all pinstriped I should be able to clean them up a bit. With that said, FEEDBACK PLEASE!!!!

Heres a little more...

I layed down some more tape on the tops and sprayed a light coat of green then some of that clear efx clear stuff. u cant really tell the effect it gives too well in these shots though.

Then the tape came off.

Did a little more on this one....Took a page out of Minis book and added some penstripes. :biggrin: Then candied over everything. It still needs work but its getting there. This is pretty much the look I was going for. I will probably add some more stripes then clear and try to sand down the pattern edges. Let me know what you guys think!!
