      okay I'm going to try and make a build thread..I went air this year bought a couple sets of wheels and just recently purchased a nice set of fully polished rs's then my car caught fire ...the pipe on my wg recirc blew off blowing flames onto the oil return line .. it was about 5 min of going completely up in flames before the first department got it out.. anyways pulled the motor same day and was going to just clean everything up then decided to shave the bay ..what a pain in the ass but here are some pics.
      page 1: random pics damage/prep work for shave.
      page 2: final paint


      what a mess

      starting
