The grinding and cleaning is a pain, but the end result is worth it. I also used masterseries. Great product and really good people to deal with.

thanks for those pics.this spring im going to replace the drivers pan so i plan on stripping the entire chassis and paint it in masterseries..i may go with 3-4 coats of rust sealer/primer then 3-4 of black..i guess i really want to protect it from these roads..it wont see rain/snow unless im coming from a show and i get caught in a rain storm and since we get salt the wet roads will get crap on the pans so i want to protect it.

Here is another product I used. Sprayed the inside of the tunnel and also plan to use on my heater channels, inside of doors, etc. for protection.

The hood is pretty cool for a gasser race look, but I'd bond hinges in. That way you can swap to the 2-vent lid whenever you want. Check out the cal look lounge for more cal look and gasser stuff.

I think I saw someone do it but im going to have something made where the original hinge brackets bolts to the body (that's where the hood pin thing will be on) and if I ever wanted to put the stock hood and hinge piece that bolts to the body I just take 6 total bolts out and swap it all back over...
