      they are there just to see.
      the gotti center caps i have had the stupid Corvette logos on them and were wrapped in some kind of foil crap. I had those center caps sprayed satin black and and trying to decide what to do with them. but i do have all 4 original Gotti caps.

      that is hours worth of hard thought out, back-breaking work right there my friend.

      and i am still crossing my fingers for it to be done for Wuste, and if it isn't i am ultimately fine with that and will still have a fun time.

      as it sits right now we have
      diagnose why the spark isn't firing
      install full interior
      get tires mounted
      wet sand, buff, minor paint touch up
      install side skirts, front bumper, grill, headlights, fog lights, passenger door window regulator
      alignment
      and clear bra if i had time
      oh and also try to put a few miles on it before the trip across the desert.

      who knows what could happen in the next 4 days.

      I am going to have the Gotti center caps (which had Corvette logo's on them) painted the same color of the wheel. and i am going to try and get a Gotti logo so i can have some nice vinyl logo's made to stick on them.

      The car was planned to debut at Wuste next weekend, but as it looks right now that may not happen, which is OK.

      the car wasn't worked out late last week or the weekend because of Wuste. It's in the hands of the painter to put the finishing touches on it. Once he is done Parts Score will get it back to get it running and then assembled.
      the goal is to be done by the end of this month now that we can take our time a little more.

      the Gotti website has some decent enough centercap pics. You might have to clean them up, but you can definitely pull a logo from there.

      a few new pics from today
      body work is just about finished. probably 95% done. the color after buffing is beautiful, and the side moldings being on make it look more complete.
