do the headlights look as choppy in person as that? the masking looks like it didnt want to bend. i.e. you should use quarter inch painters tape for those details.

why the black flares?


besides that im down for what happening.

The radius on the lids isn't perfect, but it looks good enough for me especially since the car is by no means a beauty queen . The flares arn't black, I put undercoating on the under sides of the flares and also on the car body so the white would'nt stand out from under the flares when looking at the car on an angle...

Still pluggin along....Decided to start hiding the rest of the stripe. I did the windshield surround first since its probably the hardest (b/c of all the masking off). I'm going to do the bumpers and finishing panel toward the end of the week when its in the 60's here. While painting the windshield surround I decided to paint behind the fenders and the cowl opening under the windshield since I was already doing all the work anyways. The Z34 vent came in today, I think its going to look SICK! That'll probably go in this weekend since I don't want to be rushed. I prefer the asymmetrical look....so if anyone is interested in the other vent lemme know (its metal)

Your stripped hood is just cool! I know you'll be painting it, but it remindes me of some of the older fighters...

With nice weather arriving temporarily, I HAD to get out for a drive today. I rushed home, put the car back together, gave everything a quick once over and off I went.....I must admit, as much fun as the car is to drive....and quick, I sure do have an itch for more power The body definitly needs some work / paint....she's about a 10 footer right now

I got a number of stares, a few WTF's, and one thumbs up from a old dude today

Thanks....yea that is with the 30mm rear and 19mm front spacers installed. The straight on rear shot you can see the bottom of the wheel is about flush, but with the camber I'm running the top is in a bit.... If I had man'd up and bought some $500/rim kodiaks I'd be fillin the flares more, o well

For your next project you should take off that black stripe. Your car will look 20x better without it.

Nice work on the hood, that looks good. Is the vent aluminum too, so it can stay polished or brushed?
