      • So I went in to Roger's Rod and Custom shop today and talked to him about my project and he showed me around his shop... and wow that place is NICE. I wish I had a shop like his place. He is definitely an awesome guy and I look forward to doing business with him. He liked my idea with the anodized looking bright red with bronze/titanium/gun metal gray stripes to match my wheels.

        On another note I'll be picking up my block, crank, pistons, and rods tomorrow morning from Wagamon Brothers. I should have pics up later Sat afternoon.

        Also my brother is going to be coming up here Sunday to help me start prepping the car for paint.

                  • On the web somewhere there is correct spacing for Shelby, Boss, and Mach stripes. I know yours are pretty general, but I believe the two thicker stripes need to be closer together. I always loved the color scheme, but I personally might be regretting the strupes down the road. Did you think about just doing something on the hood alone?

                      Haha. Man this whole car is over the top, so it suites it. Red with bronze/gold has been done many of times on factory cars. First one that comes to mind was the Dodge Viper.

                      Yea I just tossed them on there not paying to much attention to the center stripes. I was going to come back and do pin stripes in the middle too (which is why I left the space), but then after I did it I didn't like it so I left it without and didn't bring them in closer as I didn't want to redo everything.
