silva had a list of things he wanted done to the car ...what happens when the job starts is they give me a rendering of the car that is approved by customer , than customer adds a list of special requests (and there is not alot that we say no too no matter how crazy it is , if they want to pay for it we'll do it )

the list they gave me was

1)air suspension to get over the shitty roads in brazil
2) wide body to fit 13" wide rims
3)shave doors
4)moving lights and shoulder lids (silva is in love with bumble bee from transformers!) and yes the car talks and makes transformer sounds which was another request from him ...the lights was the biggest pain in my ass to build . i thought they were the dumbest thing ever , i dont mind the shoulder lights , but the side makers are too much , but he loves it

there is a huge differnce from our personal shop builds and our client builds...most of our clients have werid request and little patience to get there car back . and i know we'll never shake our " pimp my ride " reputation . but believe us we are glad we have nothing to do with mtv anymore ...all that stupid shit that went into those cars was required by the producers of the shows and all those people were either relitives,friends,and wanna be actors that never even owned the cars !so thats that and im ramblin too much

o yeah gas filler got relocated ,, kinda hidin . was pretty funny when i told my boss after the car got painted that i forgot to put the gas filler door back on

IMO too much on looks and not enough enigine mods. The stock SS is too slow, needs FI with his kind of cashflow I expected more than a pop charger.

then again, its his car and maybe it is just what he wanted. Cant wait for the GSP fight!
