      I'm glad your saving it!! Love that color, mine is the same. Also such a early body that is also sweet on top of the non sunroof. That interior looks very clean!! Is that a VRT?? Or is it going to be... Looking forward to this build. Subscribed!!

      Speed Unlimited on ebay. They are right by me and have every type of fitting and fuel line in stock. By far the best prices on the net. I saved $100 on fuel lines by going to them.
