Looks awesome Brian. Love the colour, stance, and wheels. Very nice job on blending the bodies together. 
I’m looking at ordering some Z- wheels, would you recommend him?

Cheers, Steve

I highly recommend Steve Zimmerman. great wheels easy to work with.

Thank you Brian, I appreciate the feedback sir! Looking forward to seeing your build “under glass” beats work.

Thanks guys. Means a lot to me.

There was one other thing I did and that was to epoxy 2 neodymium magnets under the firewall and drilled a shallow duvet in the hood  for 2 other magnets corresponding to the 2 under the firewall.  There was just the right amount of magnetic pull to keep the hood in place.
