Oh the goodies on there. I know for a fact the suspension on this thing needs to be upgraded. The front hits the bumpstops fairly bad and with the added HP the rear will not hook up.

Dad just called, said he is priming now. Said since I posted pictures on Facebook and got him in trouble he might as well work late. Apparently this was a don't tell mom project.

Color of the car shouldn't be the deciding factor in the quality of body work. The body work should be the same weather you paint the car black,white or pink. If its straight it's straight. I've been doing body work all day on my xrt carryall golf cart and it's finally straight. The bed was beat to hell.


Glad to have you back Steven. Car looks great tell your dad to crack a beer for his good work.

The color of the paint does effect how much shows through it. Triple black shiny as hell paint shows everything. This car will be clean and straight, the old man doesn't know any other way. He is building a paint Booth and painting it this week.

You are dumb.

20k including the $35000 car, not a bad deal. And if he beats me that is fine but it won't be an easy thing to do.

You didn't get what I was saying. Your body work should be that good regardless of the color. That's just how I was taught. Don't count on the color to hide imperfections.

We are working with a Guy on here who has one, we are trying to get it set up right before we buy it. Running a tight budget on this so we don't wanna buy a complete engine and then end up buying all the accessories over again if the stock truck ones don't fit.

I know its gonna be top notch. My point was that black shows shit more than any other color, hence the need for extra love. Sell me some of those camaro rims.
