still at the body shop, but it is coming along. sorry I did not take pics, but they will be putting down the Gelcoat here in a couple of days so we will see.

on a another note I found out what the lift on the body was hiding the rear somehow sits lower when they (the PO) shortened the pan so that will have to be changed .I may have mentioned that earlier.. so in the meantime I had some powered coating done in a chrome like appearance here are a couple of photos .. I think they turned out quite well . what do you guys think??
