Thanks guys!

Paganis are one of my favorite cars. Those are truly a work of engineering ART!

That's the goal, 3,400 as it's going to be basically set up as a track car, ie, no AC, radio/speakers, rear seat, etc...

Here is a pic of the HH back from getting blasted. The only insignia I left was the Hammerhead logo.

Tomorrow it will go to get Ultrasonically cleaned. This is the same process used to clean surgical equipment. It took me a long time to find a shop with one as it's a really expensive piece of equipment, in most case $15,000 on up. Next it will go to the powder coater. The reason I'm not doing not powder coating first is because the ultrasonic dunk will hurt the finish. The goal for the cleaning it to make sure it's there aren't any metal shaving. Below id a picture of my block which I had cleaned as well.

A bunch of updates to come as I'm a lot further a heads than the updates. It just takes a lot of time to organize, sort and post and time is something I have little of right now.
