Install the CAI yourself and keep the $100 for your other mods. It can be done in 15-20 minutes if you take a beer break and have to pee.

Several guys took there cars to a place in Santa Clarita for side vents and painting and all of them came out great! I can't remember the name of the place but I'm sure Chitto or TCat can give you the info.

You guys in CA have West Coast Customs in Corona...his show is on TV. I knew Granatelli was a "more or less" speed shop that catered to Mustangs until maybe a couple of years ago when they expanded to Camaros, etc. Never heard they did the kind of custom work you are looking into.

Exotic Custom Cars and Design in Huntington Beach does some great work. Russ runs a small shop but is very personable and cars about cars. He's worked on my car, and I plan on going back to him at some point for some goodies.

He's very fair priced and does all sorts of things. The shop does cars for Overhaulin' (tv show with chip foose) from time to time.

I had the same problem with WCC.

I took mine to a local shop but would rather not recommend them due to the overspray they left on my car and also damaged my stripes.... but, they did pretty good work on the quarter panel vents.



Websites for products?

Check my coupon code thread:

Now I'm looking for a place to two-tone my car like the Dale Earnhardt edition.... may go with Custom Auto Body. If anyone has another recommendation please PM me.

Looking to get the work done in November just prior to my return from deployment.
