Looks sweet.

How was the engine cover painted? Plastic spray paint? Did the heat effect it?

Spray paint from Auto Zone, took multiple coats, I think he used 3 cans. Heat has not effected it to date!

Oops my bad. Sorry about the stripe thing. Still a very impressive car. The silver and chrome on that blue look great.

Nice car.

How's the Hurst shifter. I've seen videos of complaint of it being loose, and difficult to shift, but I've also seen video on YouTube and shifter looked really easy to shift. Could it be people having issues aren't installing it correctly?

Got the grille directly from T-REX, they used my car in a photoshoot.

DefenderWorx sells T-REX if you call Brian or Timmy let them know I sent you.

I dont think its hard to shift, its firmer, and its definately a shorter shift. The original shift was comparable to the 6 speed in my Audi which I would consider semi luxury, but now it shifts like a sports car.
