9-22 Update

Click the image to open in full size.


Vinyl wrap has continued into the driver side. Front fender, both door caps completed along with blacked-out window trim. The majority of the night was starting the front bumper. Check out the 2-tone black on white action!

first off beautifull car, Love everything you have done to it soo far but the exhaust. If this guys work was second to none... Man, I hope he didnt charge you too much for the custom exhaust.

I've seen better welds on a valley muffler job than that... Sorry not flame you or putting down your ride. Just I thought you could have done better and I hope he didnt charge you too much...
