      My cabby left my possession on Sunday. And all this thread does is make me regret getting rid of it sooo soon. =\ that package enclosure is dope. And how is the home made rack holding up?

      flossy car looks like it has a lot of potential; body looks real straight... just have to do something with interior, everything is much more complete than the last one i bought. good find man!

      I love reading/looking at this project and I like the new touches.

      Have you any plans for the rear bumper yet? I see the ends are cool.
