Early Saturday morning, the LS was dropped off in Brentwood to the well-crafted hands of Steve Kefer for the complete custom exhaust.

Complete floor-board replacements, custom suspension arms and spindles, bbk, wheels, all aspects of any custom work can be performed by Steve. Check out the kind of cars he build.

Schedule pick-up is Saturday so wait for the video clip.
