Fire Woman

So, it's about time I quit the lurking and post up some pics of my ride. Purchased in April of 2010 from Diver Chevrolet in Wilmington, DE, my Victory Red 2LT/RS aka Fire Woman has undergone some changes over the last few years. Sadly, I did not photo-document all that transpired along the way (so much for a true build-thread) but here's a taste.


At one time, she looked like this...

Good job so far. Work in progress like mine.......! My big ticket item, the OEM ground effects was the largest project....have my engine cover done, now to the fuse box cover, think I'm just going to paint the emblems, not the whole cover!
