      Thanks cris, gotta give most of the credit to Dave so far... but I am super pumped with his work. I saw it last week and I got a chubby when I walked in the garage.. (ok it was a full stiffy)

      That color is beautiful! Can't wait to see some pics of it out in sunlight.

      Only gripe is why didn't Dave take the plastic trim off the mirrors to paint them? So easy to do and its the right way to do them.

      Didn't ask, but really if it's masked right, not a big deal. I am dying to see it in the sun too.

      They are so easy to take apart and its always better not to tape if you can. For this kind of paint job and I'm sure you paid a lot, I would expect the mirrors to be taken apart rather than taped. Especially with all of the time put into taking the rest of the car apart.

      Dave pulled the fenders with the good ol' touch of a hammer. No metal added just a man with some talent.

      I know I know! I wanted to make a one page build for all the body stuff and quick updates as I finish her up. I plan on spending every night next week on wiring, and fab'in up the power steering like dogger did on his car. Lots to do but I feel like it's going fall into place soon. We can't all buy fitted turbo kit's made buy other people. cough cough (mike) cough...

      Still debating between fender and rail, but the fender is so much nicer for access. I'll have to decide once I get it here. It's my first tuck and build for that matter so advice is always appreciated guys. Especially dogger, sean, and dave with fully shaved bays. Pickin up the block from the machine shop in 10 minutes so I'll have some pics by tomorrow of the engine build.
