Thanks, guys. We've been busy, the dual halo kits got here, so when we took the bumper off I decided to paint my grills and bowtie, and the light housings. We're still in the process of reinstalling but so far so good! I've got the grills reinstalled. The foglight halo's are in, I painted the bezels while I was at it. We've got one headlight sealed back up, going to seal the other one tonight.
I also received my Rx VMax ported throttle body and got that installed, and finished painting the intake tubes while I had it apart. Trigger is looking pretty homely out there waiting for his facelift, blue eyes and a new smile. I think it's going to look pretty sharp when we get him back together.
Here's a few shots of what we've got so far:

Finally stopped raining long enough to get a picture of the project in daylight. We broke rainfall records in March by over a half inch. I'm liking the silver grill, not sure whether or not to reshoot the bezels in the same blue as headlights and bowtie.

I installed a Hurst Billet Plus Short Throw shifter this weekend, thank you Autoagenda! Love the feel of the new short shift and the old school T-handle is just the right touch.

heh - that last picture also shows the vinyl on the ignition. Cheapest mod ever. I didn't want to scratch it all up so I cut a circle of blue vinyl to protect it.

Thanks, there's another guy on the forum who painted his white - I got the idea from him. It seemed right with the blue/white halo's.

Really nice looking build. Congratulations!

Long ago, for quite a while, I used to get down to Spokane at least once a year as pit crew for a friend at the dragstrip. Like, 20 or 25 years ago when it was an AHRA nationals event. Good times!

Thanks for the kind compliments! I finally got around to popping off the center caps and painting the bowties. I had to remove the vinyl first, clean it good, tape the bowtie off, and paint. I like how it looks much better than the vinyl.
I also polished and waxed the wheels, and detailed out the wheel wells.
One of these days I'll be painting those brake calipers.... one more mod and I'm through.

I couldn't tell you who it was... I've looked for it again and couldn't find it.
Latest Mods:
I bought a set of tires & wheels from SteveDallas and had to get in some practice fixing curb rash. Just got that done, letting the paint cure for a few weeks before I put them on the car. I'll be selling 4 8" wheels and keeping the 9.5s all the way around is my plan.

Having a good summer, feeling the appreciation for all the work I've been putting in. Out of 5 shows I've gotten trophies at 3.

Thanks Mike, this winter I'm getting some blue caliper paint and going after the calipers while I'm swapping wheels around.

That will look GREAT. Can't wait to see how that looks for you. IF all goes well I should be updating my claipers with my G2 IOM paint tomorrow. They are currently G2 orange.
