Two gallons of fuel or a month of diet and intense exercise.

First dyno run ... put down 402 according to the lethal racing dyno. That is a huge number for stock. Will take more testing to see if this car is some kinda factory freak. It was a fun day none the less.

Plastidiped the mirrors today.

I wipe it down with a prep solvent. A degreaser and wax stripper . Then mask. Used some old towels to catch over spray. Which is a snap to clean up with this stuff.


The concept 1LE had black mirrors.



Came out nice. Not perfect but a good test. If I like it I will get em painted along with the hood at some point.



Finished product.

Looks better than I would have expected. Hopefully the plastidip is durable.

I like it.

That's what I thought too. I use this plastidip for a 3D Photoshop. I will run a few weeks with it. If i like the look enough I will have the pieces painted.
