Damn, well fit tubes are sexy!
Were you involved with the fitting? Time consuming isn't it?
Beautiful work! Doesn't it just make you want to clear coat it the way it is?

I'm having this shop build the whole thing https://www.facebook.com/UnderPressureR ... t/?fref=ts

Since I'm traveling so much for work I decided to let someone else handle it. I'm going to focus my time/energy on finishing the sheetmetal and getting road ready :)

I'm hoping I can get it dyno tuned in the next two weeks. I ordered a complete rubber kit from Datsport and should have it next week. Should be tearing up the streets next month ;)

Here's a little update... Car is moving along.

Had to redo the front fenders. Most of the metal work is done.

Looks great in grained metal!
Flares are slick, good job.
