Finally got the car back from the paint shop. Hard to capture the paint effect with a camera, but you can see how it can look black and then have the lace detail pop out in the sunlight:

This is without any wax or finish. It needs to cure for a couple of weeks and then we'll get a final cut and buff done. We had a bunch of little roof dents smoothed out and the antenna and old spoiler holes were filled. We also had these covers fabricated out of stainless steel for the rear cowls and the holes in the front corners of the bay:

Got my box from Howerton today too, so tomorrow I will do the meth kit install.

Got the Aquamist installed, took it out and really pushed it for the first time. It was hitting 15 lbs at 6800 rpm and going 90 in 3rd gear. Looking forward to getting on the dyno, getting a new tune and seeing what it can really do.

Default WOW, been following this car over the years

Last time I saw the car (following the forum threads), was with the Driveway to road mishap due to the repaving (a few years ago).
From the styling, modding, to full out. Nice to see it's alive, and gives "passed by a girl" a whole new meaning

Lol, thanks. It's been almost 10 years of tinkering to get it here.

The roof came out really nice, I just love old school touches like that!
