Is that a slip on cover for the parking brake? I like it! Are the tail lights sequential?

The taillights are Spyder LED's & those pics are how bright they are. That is not with the brakes on. I gave my sequential hook-up 2 brian. The handle on the brake is a slip on. The boot is real leather very easy 2 put on.

Picked up my front facia last night. From I justify's house chris her husband painted it fot me. Repainted my street scene splitter,& and lower billet grill w/air ducts. This guy does unbelievable work. They are members of Upstate C 5. Reinstalled it this morning,looks just awesome. Now have 2 wait 4 hockey extensions-thinking of taking the side stripes off. But am still undecided.

Well it's only a 1 car garage,rural area -houses close together. So i'm going 2 make the best of it for my own personnel pleasure & leisure. Have already installed new electrical,tracking lights,&most important heavy insulation. I air ducted my own centeral air conditiong & heat from original house furnace. Which will have no problem do the job.
Old garage door is 25-30 yrs. old. With windows,wood framed. It has been a good door but time to update with new light weight door. Putting in Relia Bilt 7x9 ft. Highest insulation R-rating you can get a 7. Was going to get windows in it but you lose the r-factor & is metal covered on the backing.White panel design.
