    I don't like how the flares go from the front to back on the side of the doors like they do.



    Pretty fucking hot though, I like how they kept the engine cover original looking.

    I noticed that....any progress pictures of this car? I'd like to see how they made the car able to take a driveshaft. I've helped do some extensive work like that, but I always love to see what people do to get around certian problems.:bowdown:
